SHE LAUGHS, and chooses JOY
Welcome to your weekend Soul Sista devotional: The Proverbs 31 Series through the lens of the Passion translation.
Note from Founder - Why have we been so quiet of late?!
WOWEE, has it been 4 weeks since we have jumped into your inbox beautiful one?! We miss you! We miss doing community together, and speaking into your heart. So why so quiet? In a nutshell, life happened. We needed some time for soul care and to hear from God in a winter season. And as is always true, He is ever faithful. LIFE happens when we least expect it as God is always drawing us back to His heart.
We don't take the honour of doing life together lightly, so thanks for sticking by us! We hope this blesses you as we read the word together and choose to steep in the values of Proverbs 31 women. Sacred wisdom that we believe has the power to speak into our now as we choose to live in the fullness of our worth.
So dear sister, lets go!!
Recap for women who are just joining us, why are we doing this journey together?
We're going DEEPER to wrestle with what it means to 'do' womanhood well in today's world-gone-crazy! To choose to say yes, I AM who God says I AM. To believe that we are here to do sometimes hard & holy things. To be loved by God, and to live a life that tells others what its like to be loved by Him. To stand in the gap for others. And to live - truly LIVE - each and every day while keeping eternity in mind.
Soul scripture of the week: Proverbs 31:25 (The Passion Translation)
''She laughs with joy over the latter days"
What does this woman of Joy look like?
Lets go back to the beginning. The joy of your first love. Of finding JESUS. Of Being wholly accepted. Wholly known. Perhaps for the first time. A joy cultivated through love of your Maker. Who designed you with purpose and intention, waiting for your arrival since the beginning of time. Waiting for you to return His love since the beginning of time.
Because you, dear Daughter, matter. You matter to the heart of the King.
So many things of this world will exist to rob us of this true joy of being fully loved. And fully known. Its up to us to choose to cultivate an active faith of joy and love in our life.
Jesus himself said so beautifully that we may have many troubles in this world, but to take heart, He has overcome the world. From this expansive place, we can choose joy even in the tender places of pain, knowing that there is a greater purpose and destiny. That every time we choose joy over fear, we are choosing Jesus' power to be wrapped around us.
We have the privilege of being Daughters who can cultivate a heart-posture of joy, hope and peace, because we are reliant on the source of all Joy.
Dear Jesus, we come before you as the giver of all peace, all joy that transcends our circumstances this week. We ask that you give us fresh revelation that our joy is not in our 'push' to achieve enough, be enough - its in our hearts position. Open and surrendered before you. Speak to us exactly what we need to hear, and make your voice the loudest in our heart this week. We claim that you are FOR us, not against us - and surely goodness and mercy will follow us all of the days of our life. In your beautiful name, we are so honoured to pray.
Would love to hear your story as we grow together community, Say hello here xx
