My name is Victoria Emmanuel, from kebbi state zuru local government. A graduate of Ahmadu bello university zaria.
I studied Bs.c Mass communication.
The experience has been quite interesting at some point challenging, I can put it all together that God has been too faithful. I love the course I studied, It was what I applied for and by the grace of God, I will be practicing broadcast journalism specifically.
I have confidence in my gifts/skills, my ability to love people easily and making friends.
At about age nine, I started my journey with Jesus. I grew up in a Christian home, serving Jesus was kind of easy. I believed there is more in Jesus than I have received from home and I wanted to know God for myself. I remember times that my prayer and study life hasn’t been consistent either from distractions here and there or tiredness. God has really helped me by creating systems and making them always available to put me back in space.
True! The vision is understanding the person and character of the woman in proverbs 31 and replicating that possibilities in our days amidst the whole vices creeping into our society and corrupting the ideal standard of God’s own Lady. I received the vision in 2017 precisely, God placed the burden in my heart of first becoming it before sharing it with the world. Then I came across a piece of poetry that left a burning desire to chase the vision, I began to hashtag my works with 31 status which l later changed to 31_lineage. The vision and the mission is contained on my Facebook page with “31 lineage” as the known brand.
The purpose of the 31_lineage is for every woman to work upon the ancient landmark set by mothers of old, the likes of Esther, Deborah, Katherine, Joyce, Ruth and the woman of proverbs 31.
To also create in both men and women the mindset of working out their relationships/marriages according to God’s standards not the world’s way.
More information about 31 lineage is on facebook already, just click on the link and there we go.
Becoming proverbs 31
The journey has been a deliberate one I will say. The experience has been a package of falling and rising, It beckons on my consistency at every point. I studied the chapter and read it over and over again, I fixed my name on it, I prayed the reality into my life, changed my mindset from the norms and beliefs, and also accepted the workings of the the Holy spirit in my life.
It has been a gradual process, the people around me started noticing a change in me. they walked up to me and said it.
It took over a year, as it is now, I believe God has not even started with me yet, it’s just a touch. He want many other ladies to be part of this experience, just why we are now available on Facebook.
The inspiration has been from him and the evidence is all around!
The testimonies that accompanies the message are overwhelming and really humbling.
The truth is that, becoming a woman of proverbs 31 is not by effort or timing. It is a grace that can only be given by God and the access we have through the sacrifice of Jesus to connect with the graces that were before us.
How to live a life of purity
Purity is first a state of heart, then an expression. Both work hand in hand.
To be pure in the context of relationship has to do with abstinence from sexual immorality as commanded by God (1 Cor 6:9-20).
It is very important to know that sexual purity is not some doctrinal verdict that hinders one from sin but a command from God. For every godly relationship to see the light of the day, it has to be centered on the foundation of God’s word. It is quite interesting and a bit difficult to sustain one amidst the romantic hypes in our society but with the help of God and his guidance it is possible to enjoy such possibilities.
My opinion on purity in a relationship is based on;
- Divine help
- Setting principles and boundaries
With this, one can strive towards achieving a set goal.
In creating boundaries, i will say a particular principle does not work for every relationship. First, you have to consider proximity, environment and nature of the people involved.
The general knowledge is that both parties should avoid being alone in rooms or hotels, they should avoid any activity that will eventually lead to sex and seek counsel if they thinks they cannot hold themselves.
Sexual purity starts from the heart.
I’d advice anyone intending to be in a relationship or already is, to have a strong relationship with Jesus First.
The whole process will be made easier.
Fear the Lord.
Do not follow the crowd on the matters that has to do with your relationship, marriage and family life. Not everything generally accepted is godly or true.
You have to first know God and surrender completely to his will before you can become a woman from a different lineage. Surrendering here means keeping aside all you think you have, all that you think you know, or have learned in the past and submitting your entirety to God.
Run from satanic ideas that comes as wisdom from people around you, when it is Jesus you are following he sure will lead you and your home.
It might not look like it when you first start, just know that the backing from God is all you need and you can do all things through him!
Everything is possible to him that believes.
