What is True Beauty? The World today is so overrun with false ideas of what makes us beautiful. We are caught in the Hype that if we just buy this product, or just wear those clothes or just lose that bit of weight, then we will be happy. We are bombarded with adverts, TV shows and social media pressures that if your exterior is perfect then the rest of your life will just fall into place and you will be happy! How False is this!
We do need to look after ourselves but we so often spend too much of our time, money and energy on our exterior beauty and not on who we are as a person. God Himself warns us against this and remind us what True Beauty is. He tells us that:
“Charm is deceptive and beauty is Vain, but a Women who fears the Lord is to be Praised” Proverbs 31.30
You were made by the King of Kings- you are more beautiful than you even realize! “The Kind is enthralled by your beauty,” Psalm 45.11. Claim your beauty, walk with your head high knowing that you are SO Beautiful because you were “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” Psalm 139.14.
I bet if you asked your children, they would say you were the most beautiful lady they know! They see your love, protection, warmth, security, patience (most of the time), gentleness and self sacrifice. It is these qualities that makes them see you as the most beautiful women in the world.
God tells us in 1 Peter 3.3-4 that True inner beauty keeps you beautiful forever. If anyone should know anything about Beauty it’s God Himself, since He is the author of it all and His Recipe for Beauty is ….. Love, Joy, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control Galatians 5.22-23,.
So don’t buy into the false, socially-constructed Lies of Beauty because True Beauty is what you project from the inside. The light that shines from your eyes and the joy in your smile 🙂 Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Embrace your Own Perfect Unique Beauty! 😉
