The expression "Beauty is Only Skin Deep."
Psalm 139:14 : I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Proverbs 31:30: Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
There is something that can be hypnotizing about a beautiful woman. When a beautiful woman enters a room the attention is certainly directed in her direction. Beauty comes in the form of confidence as well as good looks. When confident women come into a conference room or a meeting, she exudes something magnificent.
It is so important to have beauty that surpasses good looks. Our outer beauty will fade with age. For some the visible change of looks will make us unhappy. Sagging skin, spots from sun, thinning hair, weight gain/loss. We must begin to experience the beauty of who we are so that it will surpass what is external. Beauty that comes from the inside will shine so bright that people will always ask what is about that woman. She is always so beautiful.
Have you ever met woman in their 70s, 80s and 90s that are absolutely stunning. They have silver hair and the skin is not as tight as it use to be and the body parts are not as firm, however, they are just breathtaking. I aspire to be like these women. They know who they are and are confident from the outside out.
Yes, buy makeup, style your hair and dress phenomenally. You can and you should. However, do not get lost in that, you have so much more going for you. The beauty really is skin deep.
Meditate on that!
