“she looks forward to the future with joy”

As I worked in my garage, I heard the above verse (from Proverbs 31:25) and pondered it’s message.


the great and lofty Proverbs 31 woman (aka. the stick my finger in my throat, as if to gag, whenever I hear reference to this impossibly perfect lady).

“looks forward”

not back, but forward … anticipation.

“to the future”

what is to come … no one knows what that might be.

“with joy”

not happiness, but joy … that delightful contentedness that has more to do with peace than with a smile plastered across her face.

“she looks forward to the future with joy”

This lady, written of in Proverbs 31:25, is looking ahead to whatever may come … the good, the bad, the downright ugly, with a contentedness and no clenched teeth.

She is not stressing, fearful of what tomorrow might bring, she is accepting of whatever may come, joyfully.

Another way to put it, is that she goes to bed at night not worrying about what she must do in the tomorrow, but excited for the day to come.

I keep wondering, how does she sleep?

Maybe more of us need to look forward to our future with joy.
