For all the women in out there who are rebuilding their life in sobriety or who are trying to overcome alcoholism; Proverbs 31 – A Wife of Noble Character might help you find your way.

I have edited the original proverb slightly but I think the message speaks clearly regardless. Wouldn’t it feel good to be this kind of woman?

Proverbs 31 – A Wife of Noble Character
Virtuous and Capable
She brings her husband good
Her husband can trust her
She gets up before dawn to prepare the breakfast for her household
And plans the days work
She is energetic and strong, a hard worker
She makes sure her dealings are profitable
Her lamp burns late into the night
She extends a helping hand to the poor and needy
She has no fear of winter because everyone in her household has warm clothes
She dresses in fine linens
She is clothed with strength and dignity
She laughs without fear of the future
When she speaks her words are wise and she gives instructions with kindness
She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness
Her children stand and bless her
Her husband praises her
