A Woman's Virtue

By Tonya Woodridge-Jarvis

A woman’s virtue is her wisdom and her strength.
She’s poised, prim and proper, and always watches over her sheep.
See, a woman has the ability to get the job done, no matter the circumstance.
God equipped her that way and not by chance.

A woman’s virtue is her ability to pray and cover her family without ceasing.
She knows that God’s favor on her family’s life is forever increasing.
So no matter the errands, the homework, or how she feels,
She covers them daily like their personal armored shields.

A woman’s virtue is her ability to sacrifice herself and her time for her family.
Her ultimate goal in life is to see them succeed, and when that happens, her spirit is at ease.
She puts her goals and dreams on hold to make sure the family stands together boldly.
See, God made her multifaceted to meet every deadline, make the kids cupcakes, and to even plan while she’s sleeping.

She can take blow after blow, yet have beautiful skin with a natural godly glow,
Like she’s been through nothing.
But she’ll be quick to tell anybody that her God is truly something.
She doesn’t look like she’s been in a fiery trial, because God truly keeps her by His side.
She knows that her pain is never wasted and it was never caused in vain.
She knows that one day a lost soul of a woman will come along for her to tame.

See, the kind of woman I’m talking about is beautiful, strong, and a weapon of mass destruction.
She knows the real meaning of spiritual warfare, as it is not just a song.
She’ll tell that devil to get under her feet and will not ever accept any kind of defeat,
Because in due season she knows that she will reap!

See, that woman of virtue is YOU.
Can you stand to be empowered, to know your self-worth?
You’re worth way more than you were ever told.
You’re worth more than silver and gold.

See, God made you blessed and highly favored.
You’re above and never beneath, you’re the head and not the tail, you’re a lender and not the borrower,
So you should stand for nothing less than what He already promised!
Now, I just stopped by to refresh your memory
And to remind you that we are all Proverbs 31 women.
