For all of us women in this online world, I feel like there is a dirty little word that it’s about time we talked on for a minute.
|them. I want to be famous to them.|
We all say it.
Maybe we seek it.
Maybe we’re confused by it.
But it’s there.
We all know of famous bloggers or famous etsy shops or famous photographers, and to some degree – it’s easy to think that’s the goal, right? We can maybe even shade it biblically if we want to. Lord, increase my territory – so I can give more glory to you!
And I’m absolutely not saying that’s wrong or that some famous bloggers or shop owners are not incredibly God-fearing women out for His glory alone. And I’m not saying it’s wrong to have a desire for God to grow your business or your brand so that you can bless your family and others with what He blesses you with.
But you know what I notice about the proverbs 31 woman? She is amazing. She is a righteous woman with His stamp of approval. And we don’t know a thing about who all knows about her or who cares about her. We only know that she is a blessing to others and she brings the Father much fame through her life.
The definition of famous is known or recognized, renowed, excellent, splendid.
You know who thought that proverbs 31 woman was famous?
Her husband who thought she was excellent & far more precious than jewels. Her entire house that she provides for, that she gets up before dawn for. Her household that sees her working in strength and dignity, faith and steadfastness. The poor around her that she reaches out to. Her husbands friends at the gates, who see that there is something about him because there’s something about her. Her children, who openly confess to being blessed by her. She is famous, maybe even heroic to them. And to her God, who cherishes and loves her intimately and fully – who sees her potential and her failing and falling and covers her in His grace.
Ladies. Each of us are in worlds, surrounded by people who we can absolutely impact with God’s love, grace, and wisdom DAILY. Your husband, your children, the women at your church. Your friends. The poor. The poor in heart. Your neighbor. Your coworker.
As a woman of God you are filled with everything you need to be a part of God’s powerful plan in the lives around you.
You can be famous to them. Today.
