Keep calm and carry on

I need to confess that I nearly gave up today. Not on the diet, or the project but on the blog. If I’m really honest I felt a little bit silly. I already write a blog for my business and this just felt like one of my silly ideas, a self-indulgent online diary. I was sat thinking about it as we were waiting for our drive through order and then my son’s phone pinged.

“Do you want to hear today’s Bible verse mum?”

“Yep, go on then!”

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.”

Proverbs 31:30

Yes, the random verse on my son’s Bible app was from Proverbs 31. I smiled to myself and took the hint that this so-called silly project is something God wants me to continue.

The characteristic I’m focusing on this week is “productivity.” I have a project that I’m working on and have officially designated this as my writing week. In order to do this, I need to make sure that I stay in my office and do not do housework, get distracted by facebook and most certainly do not sit looking at pictures of what everyone wore to the BAFTAs.

Productive: producing or able to produce large amounts of goods, crops, or other commodities.

I was about to bullet point all the ways in which the Proverbs 31 wife was productive but the list is endless. In her honour, this week my challenge is to use my time effectively and be productive. I shall keep you posted.

What is one area of your life where you could take a leaf out of the Proverbs 31 wife’s book and be more productive for God?
