It’s Day 6 of our Proverbs 31 Woman Bible Study!
Today’s scripture, we are reading, Proverbs 31:15:
She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
In yesterday’s lesson, we learned the Proverbs 31 Woman went great lengths to nourish, nurture, and tend the needs of her family. She is a woman who always has the best interests of her family in mind. You can get caught up with yesterday’s lesson here!
Today’s video lesson we will look at how being well organized and prepared is not only a blessing to your family, but to those who come alongside us to help us, in our lives. It’s also important to note the Proverbs 31 Woman recognized she needed help and asked for help. That takes humility! It also lessens her load and gives her the freedom to flow in other areas of her life and home.

The big takeaway from today’s video lesson is the Proverbs 31 Woman is well organized.
And not just for the sake of organization, but so that your household can be well-prepared for their tasks, which serve in the efficiency of a well-ran home.
Which brings me to this, the Proverbs 31 Woman knows all of the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly tasks and assignments in order for her household to run effectively. In this way, she can better organize everyone’s efforts to make her home run smoothly.
How well do you know the tasks and assignments for your household?
Just think. . . you want to be the woman who is organized enough that your “help” can actually help you. This is a blessing!
The Proverbs 31 Woman realizes that she needs help. She understands she can’t do it all on her own and it takes everyone doing their part, in order for her household to run smoothly and effectively.
Do you realize you need help?
Help can come in many forms:
It’s important to know which tasks you need the most help with and how someone is able to help you. Again this goes back to the organization piece.
I know how it is having your kids help you with certain tasks. Sometimes it can seem like a 2nd job or you could’ve gotten the task done much faster with less stress!
However, if we keep in mind we are grooming the next generation for success, we will teach our children both responsibility and independence, by giving them tasks and taking the time to teach him how to execute them well.. Once they are older they’ll be able to run the house by themselves…or at least a good portion of it!
It’s important to know when to ask for help and to not be ashamed.
I know this can be hard because it’s exposing a weakness and vulnerability within us. That can feel like open heart surgery, with no anesthesia, out in the middle of Times Square. So, when asking for help, be wise whom you ask. At the same time be open to the help you recieve.
There’s no shame in asking for help.
There is shame in not getting the help, when you need it most because you were too prideful to just ask. . . Can you please help me?
I pray you have a trusted circle of people you can go to and ask for help. It doesn’t have to be a large girl. I find that intimate circles are best – for me, at least.
Are you willing to ask for help when you need it?
Be like the Proverbs 31 Woman, who not only asks for help, but she’s well prepared and organized for her help to be a blessing when they show up![clickToTweet tweet=”Be the woman who is organized enough that your ‘help’ can actually help you.
