Encouragement for the Military Wife

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
{Proverbs 31:17}
        Military Wives, do you realize the work and tasks that the LORD so graciously gives us leaves lasting impressions upon hearts? We leave behind legacies and build for eternity. God has called us to be that generation that calls upon the name of the LORD. This world will never commend us for living bold, courageous, godly lives. So ladies, let's roll our sleeves up and look up with our chins up. We can smile and do our work and tasks with joy and peace in our hearts because of Christ's strength within us. We can look ahead to God's rewards. The work and tasks God has given us to do has great value and lasting rewards forever and ever. Remember - "Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!" {Luke 1:45}

Heart check: Do I appreciate and value the work God has given me? Or do I look to people and statuses for my self-worth and value?
It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.
{Ephesians 1:11a, THE MESSAGE}

Dignity and Strength

She is clothed with Strength and Dignity: She can Laugh at the days to come.
{Proverbs 31:25} emphasis added.

Lovely Ladies, you are daughters of the Most High; the Ruler of the Universe; The KING of all kings. You are far above rubies, diamonds and pearls. We were bought at a price, therefore, we belong to GOD, His treasured possession. Women of Dignity and Strength, remember, with God we can laugh at the days to come. Keep looking up even if the seasons have brought you down or the enemy is pressing in, on every side. GOD, is in control of it all. HE directs the course, HE has the final say, Victory and Power are in HIS Mighty hands, Glory and Honor belong to Him.
James 4:10 tells us, “Humble yourselves before the LORD, and He WILL LIFT YOU UP.”
Our GOD is Bigger and Mightier than any problem, trial or obstacle we may face. Sweet Ladies, let's keep our focus and thoughts heavenward.

The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
{Job 5:10}
