For all the ladies out there, those living for their spouse and those flaunting what's best behind their blouse
To real women who adhere, to the teachings in the scripture even at the cost of theirs and their children's future
Salute!!
Many know the verse Proverbs 31, but like John 3 verse 16, don't know its meaning
Meaning, they quote it, never live it but leave it at the first sight of persecution
Wake up, sisters who love God in your bedroom but act like you don't know Him in the conference room
Brace up, your beauty is in God and shows off God's glory like the best car in a showroom
And to all of you living for Christ, hearts guarded, men misguided staying in your blind-spot
Keep on relying on Christ, keep on restating His facts till all of His creation gets remodelled like an old shop
Brothers, I included who sometimes in the flesh act dumb gotta take our crosses up
Cause I see a day coming when only guys in Christ will catch the eye of the ladies with both eyes up

That being said, here's a poem by Janette...ikz on living your life as a woman of God. #31Status

31 to be Exact - Lyrics
And God said, it was not good for man to be alone so He created you
But somewhere along the line someone changed your perspective shifted your view
Like Eve, you listened to the wrong voice and took a huge tasty bite of deception
Now your stomach is upset cause your spirit won't digest it
No longer the woman that works in the confidence of ultimate artistic design
Submit your name change: we'll call you compromise
This is what happens when, your gospel is according to whoever is at the top of your playlist
And the media has become your Bible
Searching scripture of magazines to be told you are a dancing lead in Satan's recital
But you are not her and she is not you
Cause we are called to so much more than make up, hair, clothes and shoes
And dropping it like it's hot, even if we're able to
We are women of a different status, 31 to be exact
We are content, with not looking like anyone else because we know our differences are not reasons to be jealous but God's fingerprint
We don't run around talking about how there are no good men
We know if we apply half as much effort on the inside as we do on the out, we'll stop drawing the wrong attention
Slow to speak, quick to listen
Receiving intervention from a higher dimension
Seeking purpose watching our God-given visions come to fruition
Never forgetting, that we have been forgiven much
So we eat, we live, we breathe, we give, we even sweat love
Always ready to hear from the women with silver hair
Seeds have been sown
And their wisdom saturates our soil clipping our dead-ends for growth
You'll find us always promoting unity
Serving in our communities
Using our gifts and talents as an all-glory-to-God opportunity
Wake up in the morning with a grind-for-the-Most-High on our mind
Constantly being refined to be the exact of our Architect's design
We have no hearts
So here's the answer before the question:
Any man who wants our heart will go to Christ knowing it's in His possession
Yes, we are beautiful
And barefoot in the kitchen of grace
Pregnant with purpose, baking to praise, Jesus is who we crave
Awaiting to come to full-term so we can deliver back what has been deposited
Knowing good and well one day we all will be audited
Mercy gives us second chances so we aint receive it, we outta get
We needed an intervention
Christ came to do loss-prevention
On a cross he was stretched and fully extended
And we, we were given an extension
Here me, an extension
Here me, cause this price was worth far more than your finest Indian remy
I know we can change the things we don't like all for a simple cost
But bottox, lipo and implants aint got nothing on what was accomplished on that cross
Cause you can't implant in yourself a new spirit or life will suck away your sin
You can't lap-band your addictions and you can't bottox away your depression
We all need Him
It's time to change your status, 31 to be exact
Don't be afraid of what's abstract, let the Spirit of God be what attracts

We are women of a different status, this world we will impact
We are women of a different status, 31 to be exact

  2. This is a wonderful poem. It talks about how we, as women are so influenced by the media. We as women, look up to the influential people in the media to determine what we do and what we wear. The woman in Proverbs 31 is completely different to the woman who looks up to magazines. The media plays a big role in our social lives, but we need to dare to be different. The poem talks about the importance of putting God first in our lives; and whaver we do we should do it to the best of our abitlity. We should use our talents and abilities to praise God. The Bible should be an important guide for our lives instead of magazines. This poem teaches us a great lesson about faith and life in this modern day.
