“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit
- Think of 3 things that you are thankful for. Determine each day that you are going to be joyful and content. Remind yourself that you are strong! Ask God to help you to “be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power” (Ephesians 6:10).
- Pray for God to build up in you a spirit of faith. Pray that He will teach you to trust Him more. Ask Him to strip away any worry, anxiety or fear from your life and replace it with a supernatural spirit of faith.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband
- Make an extra effort during this time at home due to the Coronavirus to grow your friendship with your husband. Try to spend time with your husband reading God’s Word, going on prayer walks in your neighborhood or simply sharing coffee or a treat together.
- Encourage your husband to reach out to his God-loving friends and family members via Skype, Zoom, email, or any number of methods. A word of encouragement is needed right now! If he lacks this type of friend or godly influence, pray that God will bring strong Christian men to walk with him in this life.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Children
- Pray for your children’s friends this week. It is hard for little hearts to express the longing of friends through this difficult time of social distancing. Coordinate a phone call or video call so they can see their friends they haven’t seen in a while. Encourage pen pals and writing old fashioned letters. It will brighten their day to receive something in the mail
- Plan a hands-on activity with your kids this week. Choose something that you might normally shy away from like glitter, paint, playdough, or shaving cream. Spend time making memories by making a mess, then clean up together.
The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home
- Put away all your winter clothing and accessories. Clean all the items and organize them by size. Put items aside that you want to donate and items you want to give away or resell.
- Participate in a community outreach by placing a stuffed animal in your front window. Read the book, “Going on a Bear Hunt”, with your children and then take a neighborhood adventure walk or drive and search for bears in the neighborhood.
