The WOW Woman

imageI had brought this message on a Friday night opening at a women’s retreat in Orlando Florida. It was called, “Activating the Queen in you.” I taught about the story of Queen of Sheba taken from the book of 1 Kings chapter 10 coupled with a book titled, “It’s Good To Be Queen” by Liz Curtis Higgs.

Powerful message. So well received.

She is above and beyond the norm. She is activated! She is a queen indeed, worthy of her royal calling.

This was about a “WOW” woman.

These are her outstanding characteristics:

🔹A-arise (a woman that could rise above her situation)
🔹C-courageous (a woman that is bold, strong and fierce)
🔹T-transparent (a woman that walks in transparency and truth)
🔹I-impressive (a woman that was beyond impressive…. Like WOW)
🔹V-valor (a true woman of virtue, power and nobility)
🔹A-action (a woman that could work, fight, move and be effective)
🔹T-transformational (a woman that is also transforming, thoroughly changing for good)
🔹E-example (a woman that could be an example all the way from start to finish)

Who could ever find a wife (woman) like this one?
She is a woman of strength and mighty valor!
She’s full of wealth and wisdom, the price paid for her it was greater than many jewels.
Her husband has entrusted his heart to her, for she brings him the rich spoils of victory.
Oh throughout her life she brings him what is good, and not evil.
She searches out continually to possess that which is pure and righteous.

She delights in the work of her hands.
She gives out revelation truth to feed others.
She is like a trading ship bringing divine supplies from the merchant. Even in the night season she arises and sets food on the table for hungry ones in her house and for others.
She sets her heart upon a nation and takes it as her own, carrying it within her.

She labors there to plant the living vines.
She wraps herself in strength, might, and power in all her works.
She tastes and experiences a better substance, and her shining light will not be extinguished, no matter how dark the night.
She stretches out her hands to help the needy and she lays hold of the wheels of government.

She is known by her extravagant generosity to the poor, but she always reaches out her hands to those in need. She is not afraid of tribulation, for all her household is covered in dual garments of righteousness and grace.
Her clothing is beautifully knit together–a purple gown of exquisite linen. Her husband is famous and admired by all, sitting as the venerable judge of his people. Even her works of righteousness she does for the benefit of her enemies. Bold power and glorious majesty are wrapped around her as she laughs with joy over the latter days.
Her teachings are filled with wisdom and kindness, as loving instruction pours from her lips.
She watches over the ways of her household and meets every need they have.
Her sons and daughters arise in one accord to extol her virtues, and her husband arises to speak of her in glowing terms.
There are many valiant and noble ones, but you have ascended above them all! Charm can be misleading, and beauty is vain and so quickly fades, but this virtuous woman lives in the wonder, awe, and fear of the Lord. She will be praised throughout eternity.
So go ahead and give her the credit that is due, for she has become a radiant woman, and all her loving works of righteousness deserve to be admired at the gateways of every city’s!

~Proverbs 31:10-31 The Passion Translation

This is just like the many women I know. The many women I am surrounded by. I saw this even more so tonight at our first women’s gathering of the year! What a moment! What beautiful memories they made this. If we all start holding each other up more, we will create an unshakable foundation! What a way to show how much of a WOW woman they really are!!!

Thank you. I am speechless. I could only say myself….. W O W!
