We can walk in courage and not fear! Because of the cross,

the love of Jesus Christ, and His salvation, our hope is in

Christ. We can walk in freedom, in courage, as daughters of

the King. The Apostle Paul wrote "No, in all these things, we

are more than conquerors through Him who loved us" Romans

8:37, (NIV). God gives us conquering strength and victory

through the power of the Holy Spirit. We can serve the Lord

freely when we receive the saving grace of God. "For it is by

grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not

from yourselves, it is the gift of God" Ephesians 2:8,

(NIV). We are are made in God's image; we are women of

valor, noble character, courage, strength, because God is in us!

We are valuable, because we are made in God's image!  "She is

worth far more than rubies" Proverbs 31:10, (NIV).


Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character

10. A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more

than rubies. 11. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks

nothing of value. 12. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of

her life. 13. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

14. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.

15. She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her

family and portions for her female servants. 16. She considers a

field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

17. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for

her tasks. 18. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp

does not go out at night. 19. In her hand she holds the distaff and

grasps the spindle with her fingers. 20. She opens her arms to the

poor and extends her hands to the needy. 21. When it snows, she

has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in

scarlet. 22. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine

linen and purple. 23. Her husband is respected at the city gate,

where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. 24. She

makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants

with sashes. 25. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can

laugh at the days to come. 26. She speaks with wisdom, and

faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27. She watches over the

affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and

he praises her: 29. “Many women do noble things, but you surpass

them all.” 30. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a

woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 31. Honor her for all

that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at

the city gate. (
