Guest Post :: on character and beauty

 Hello Ladies! I am honoured to be able to write here: )
 I want to talk about a woman's character and her beauty.
 I know you all know the verse Proverbs 31:30 as it is on this site, but I wanted to touch more deeply on it, as it is such a beautiful verse!
 "Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised."
This verse really is helpful to all of us young ladies in Christ.
A woman's beauty and charm can be held so highly in these present days. The world tell us that it is everything to look our best; no one will want us if we look bad ect.
But when we look at what the Bible says, God teaches us that it is not what our outer beauty is like, but rather what our inner beauty is like.
"...But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised."
When we live completely for God, and we fear Him, that inner beauty shines through us, and it is incomparable to any other beauty.
Our beauty should be in Christ.
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
We need to shine for Christ, that others will see out love for Him and give Him honour, glory and praise.
When we truly are joyous - which can only come from the One who loves us - we will be truly joyous on the outside as well, and radiant. In Christ, we have radiant beauty.
So many girls put a lot of stock into physical beauty/appearance, when all they need is to submit to the Father. Living for Him will make us radiant for Him. By His love we are of radiant beauty.

God bless :)
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
