When I went back to college in my 30’s, I decided to take accelerated courses online. This meant that a class that would take an entire semester on campus only took 8 weeks online. It wasn’t less work, it was the same amount, crunched down into 8 weekly modules.
I have always been self-motivated and driven. But, I am not immune to a bit of worry 😁 At the start of every class, on Week 1, I looked ahead at the coming weeks to see what was required of me.
Several forum posts, a ten page paper, entire books read in one week, quizzes, tests, several textbook chapters read each week, a final exam… Looking at ALL 8 weeks from Week 1 was overwhelming ~ and looked impossible!! 😵
One Step at a Time…
I always had to take a deep breath. Relax. Take it one week at a time. The 8 modules were broken down into weekly assignments, and I could break down the weekly assignments into daily to-do’s.
Doing my daily work, I got through my college courses and graduated with honors and a BA in English and Creative Writing 🙂
Proverbs 31 Woman: One Step at a Time
When it comes to the Proverbs 31 woman, I have seen women cringe, throw their hands up, say “that’s nice and all, but…” After reading the verse, I get it. It looks like a lot. It looks like an image of perfection that is impossible to reach.
But… could it be that we have all been looking at it the way I used to look at my classes? Looking at the work for ALL 8 weeks seemed impossible, especially from Week 1. What if, like I used to do in my courses, I broke down the Proverbs 31 woman into smaller parts?
Could the Proverbs 31 woman be achievable, one step at a time?
The virtues of the Proverbs 31 woman seem to be broken down by line (much like my classes were broken down by week). I’m going to look at each line separately, and take the entirety of the Proverbs 31 woman one step at a time.
Each line is practical and straightforward, so this should be simple, right? 😉 Well, breaking it down in this way should be simpler, at least ❤️
In the coming weeks, many posts on this blog will be focused on Proverbs 31. This will not be a scholarly look at Proverbs 31, as I don’t have the credentials to study the Word at that level. It will be a relaxed look at Proverbs 31, and anyone who would like to add their own thoughts is encouraged to do so in the comments of each post 🙂
I hope you will join me on this deep dive into this part of the Bible! I have been appreciating very much your comments and likes, so thank you! I always welcome and appreciate your thoughts 🙂
