Proverbs 31 Woman Journaling Prompts

Even though she isn’t exactly real, the Proverbs 31 woman is legendary.

Christian women all over the world read this passage in Proverbs and try and pattern their lives off of this amazing lady.

And it’s no wonder.

She basically did it all and didn’t seem to break a sweat.

Now, I’m not going to try and persuade you that you need to follow in her footsteps because it kinda makes me tired just thinking about everything she did.

But I did think it would be awesome to create some Proverbs 31 Woman journaling prompts that help us think about our lives more deeply.

You see, the Proverbs 31 Woman lived a healthy life…and I don’t just mean physically.

I mean she was financially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy, as well.

In today’s post, I will be talking about how she is healthy in these 5 areas and then give you some journaling prompts related to them.

I hope that these journaling prompts will inspire you to think about these different areas of your life in a meaningful way and give you a new perspective. 

25 Health Journaling Prompts Inspired By The Proverbs 31 Woman

Characteristic #1: She's mentally healthy.

She doesn’t have anxiety about the future. Proverbs 31:25 says “ She can laugh at the days to come.”

That’s huge.

I can’t tell you much time I’ve spent wringing my hands about the future, so anxious about what might come but usually doesn’t.

Yet the Proverbs 31 woman, can laugh about the future.

She knows the future is in God’s hands and she trusts him to take care of it like he always has.

When I read this it really made an impact on me.

And now when I start to get anxious I think about her and how she trusts God. I’ve used this method several times and it’s worked wonders.

Just trust God.

Here are 5 journaling prompts to help you think about your mental health like a Proverbs 31 woman.

  1. The last time I laughed about a stressful situation was…
  2. When hard times come I… 
  3. When I’m mentally stressed out, I ask God for…
  4. The last time I trusted God with my future was…
  5. The last time I cast my cares on Jesus was…

Characteristic #2: She's emotionally healthy.

In Proverbs 31:26 it says she speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

This is the definition of wisdom:

  1. the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.

Wisdom is not just about knowing what is right but it’s also about making sound decisions based on what you know is right. 

And in order to do this, you have to be emotionally healthy or emotionally stable.

Think about it.

When was the last time you made a good decision when you were feeling highly emotional?

Or you were really angry and as a result, you made really wise decisions? Probably hasn’t happened.

Being emotionally unstable and making wise decisions don’t go together.

In the same way, if you are not emotionally healthy, you probably won’t be able to give “faithful instruction to those around you.

Although admittedly, sometimes it’s easier to solve other people’s problems than resolving your own.

  3. When I am wronged by someone I love I…
  4. When I get angry I…
  5. The first person I turn to when I am upset is…

Characteristic #3: She is financially healthy.

One of the things that people worry about most is having enough money… which is one reason why they can’t laugh about the future.

They are too anxious worrying if they can feed their families or keep the lights on.

The P31 woman can laugh about the future though because financially she’s got it going on.

If you read Proverbs 31 carefully, this business woman’s got multiple streams of income:

  1. She’s into real estate (she considers a field and buys it v.16).
  2. She apparently makes money from that field because it says “out of her earnings, she plants a vineyard” in the same verse. I take this to mean that the money she makes from the field, she reinvests it and plants a vineyard to make more money.
  3. She also sews garments and sells them (verse 24) to merchants.

She works hard (verses 13, 15, 17-18) to provide for her family.

And best of all? She has enough money to where she can also give to the poor (verse 20).

  3. When I check my bank accounts I feel…

  5. I’m working to increase my income and improve financial situation by…

Characteristic #4: She’s physically healthy

The P31 woman is no slouch.

She definitely isn’t lazy and doesn’t sit around too much. She wakes up before the sun comes out.

And she doesn’t mind going far to get the best foods for her family (verse 14).

The modern-day Proverbs 31 woman might drive a little further or perhaps spend a bit more (or let’s be real, a lot more) money to get the healthiest foods for her family.

  1. The last time I worked out consistently was…
  2. When I eat healthy I feel…
  3. The Lord wants me to eat healthy because…
  4. My body is a temple because 
  5. Meal planning and prepping is/is not  ________ to me because…

Characteristic #5: She’s spiritually healthy

This is the most important form of health of all.

If we aren’t spiritually healthy or in tune with the Father, none of the other forms of health really matter.

But she’s got this covered.

Verse 30 says she fears the Lord and this fear or obedience to the Lord leads to her other forms of health:

  1. Her fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom which leads to emotional health
  2. Her fear of the Lord leads her to be a good steward of her time and her money.
  3. Her fear of the Lord leads her to take care of her physical temple.
  4. Her fear of the Lord leads her to trust him and not worry about the future.
  5. Therefore she’s mentally healthy because she’s not anxious.

  3. I fear the Lord because…
  4. I can show my obedience to God by…
  5. I can be a godly example to those around me by…

 

Don’t fall into a comparison trap with the Proverbs 31 Woman!

I’ve read before that reading about the Proverbs 31 woman makes them feel overwhelmed and inadequate.

The truth is our real example is Jesus and we, of course, will never live up to that standard.

More than likely we will never be as “perfect” as the Proverbs 31 woman either (some have even said that she is not really a woman but that this is a metaphor for wisdom).

Reading about everything that “she” does, is not meant to exhaust you.

Instead, let her inspire you. Healthy As You Can is about learning, growing, and improving day by day.

Take the principles of the P31 woman and learn and grow from them day by day.

Then you might look back a year later and see how much you’ve become that woman over time.

It’s all about the journey overall!
