I Blew It!


Proverbs 31:14

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

Proverbs 9:1-2

Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars. She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table.

She is up before dawn providing food for her family and organizing their day.

Wisdom is within her and helps support her. She readies the meals and serves her family. She sets the table and makes all the preparations.


I blew it again yesterday! I did all the above but with a grumbling attitude. I’m not sure how to shake this. I start out each day with the goal and determination to work with joy, but by the end of the day I’m a hot mess running around with a poor attitude. I can come up with every excuse too. My kids were disobedient, my husband wasn’t helping, it was hot, I was tired, etc… But when it all boils down, I choose to let Satan defeat me! My work got done, I was being diligent, but I was mad and the complete opposite of joyful!

So again today my goal is that I will work as a Proverbs 31 women but also have the JOY of a proverbs 31 woman! I will work to glorify God with my tasks and my attitude.


Lord, help me keep my perspective. Help me to honor you not only with my work but also with my attitude. Help me to see others through your eyes and extend the same grace that you extend to me. Thank you for my husband and his willingness to work and provide for us. Thank you for my children and their uniqueness. Amen

  1. Emmalee – Thank you for writing. I blow it many times and I thank God for being my Rescuer, Savior, Lord and that joy only comes from the fruit of the Holy Spirit. We can not fake it or make it. It is produced in us. Singing God’s word and hearing his word helps me to put my mind on Him and let Him do his work. I like how you share.

    • Amen! Melinda, it is so true. We are only able to accomplish things through His strength. I am so grateful that He extends us His grace when we blow it. I need to remember to pace that grace forward also.
