Enlarge the place of your tend, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out, spare not; lengthen your cords and strenghten your stakes, for you will be spread abroad to the right hand and to the left. - Isiah 54: 2-3
Note that our famous Proverbs 31 woman “makes for herself coverlets, cushions and rugs of tapestry” v(v.22). She lived a balanced life. She did a lot for others, but she took time to minister to herself. Many people burn out because they don’t take time to refresh themselves. We feel such a need to give and do for others that we ignore our own needs or wants, we feel guilty for even thinking about ourselves. We need to be ministered to spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Each one of these areas is important to God; He made them, and he is interested in the well being of all of them, including our physical and emotional needs. Our confident woman made herself cushions, rugs, and clothing. Her clothes were made of the same cloth that the priests wore. In other words, she had really nice stuff. The best!
I believe we feel more confident when we look our best and take good care of ourselves. You are worth being cared for and don’t ever forget it. You have value, and you should make an investment in yourself.
