What is beauty

Beauty fades with age, so if you are more concerned with your outer appearance, you will be unhappy when the wrinkles come and the number on the scale goes up.

In fact, did you know that your body may show the beginning signs of aging as early as age twenty. For me beauty is, comfort, contentment,confidence,compassion ,intelligence, a meek spirit and the list goes on.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

This is not saying that it is wrong to braid your hair or wear nice clothes and jewelry. The verse was written to warn women not to follow the customs of some of the Egyptian women who, during that time period, spent hours and hours working on their hair, makeup, and finding the perfect outfit. God would rather see women work on becoming beautiful on the inside — the kind of beauty that lasts forever.

 

Seeing YOUR imperfections as perfection, there are days when I enhance beauty with cosmetics and days when i let her reveal herself

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Beauty is your identity in Christ!
