True and Long-Lasting Beauty Comes From Within

My hope today is to remind you that you’re not alone in this world, and that you’re not alone in your marriage.

There’s a powerful force at work in your life and He’s cheering you on. Every hair on your head is numbered; every breath that you take is accounted for. He knows your thoughts before you speak them, and He understands your heart better than you ever will.

This incredible God who designed the universe, painted the Milky Way, hung the moon, the sun and the stars, created you with intention and purpose.

Seeking to live by His truth we bring glory to God, peace to our lives, and a crown of great worth to our husbands.

This world has enough trophy wives, it has enough beauty queens, and it certainly has enough models. What we don’t see enough of are women who model faith and truth through the way that they live. We don’t have enough women who treasure the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being beautiful or being a model for that matter, as long as we understand that this world, and everything in it, is fading.  True and long-lasting beauty comes from within. Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance are gems of great worth. Those are the ones worth holding onto.

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
– 1 Peter 3:4

You are loved by an almighty God,
