It’s time to rise above those negative circumstances and believe what God says about you.
Be still, and know that I am God…
Psalm 46:10, NIV.
When God created Adam, He put him in the Garden of Eden, a very quiet, peaceful, tranquil place. That’s where God met him and spoke with him, in a place of peace.
Today’s life can be very noisy. If we allow it, all of us can live stressed, uptight, in a hurry and on edge. In the midst of the whirlwind of activity going on around us, we’ve got to learn to not let the busyness, the frustration and stress get on the inside of us. It may be hectic on the outside, but deep down in your spirit, you can be at rest because you know God has you in the palm of His hand.
Maybe you have been worried for a long time or stressed because a dream hasn’t come to pass or upset over a challenge you’re dealing with. Just like God met Adam at a place of peace, God is saying, “There may be trouble all around, but I am calling you to a place of peace. Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength and grace for everything you face.”
God wants you to be peaceful

When we look at all the wonderful qualities of a Proverbs 31 Woman it can be overwhelming, but if we look at each one as a pearl to thread into our life, we can start to make the strand out of them that God intends for us.
Keeping our life in tune with Christ daily is a big part of making our qualities as women something that reflects Christ, so we’ve got to work at keeping that in check. Our Bible reading, prayer life, and fellowship with the Lord is what allows us the ability to take that thread in our hands and strand our ‘pearls’ as we go through life. It makes us the strong and vibrant Christian woman that is a beautiful strand of pearls in the end.
