“Clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” 1 Peter 3:4

Everyone wants to be beautiful.

Beautiful.   What does that even mean?

The word  beautiful  encompasses many meanings for many people across countries and cultures.  It describes people and places, emotions and feelings. It relays what we see with our eyes and feel in our hearts.

The definition says:  having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about; delighting the senses or mind.   It is a somewhat generic word, thought by each individual to have a very specific meaning. For most, it is an ideal to aspire to.

Where do we find our beauty?

The saying goes,  beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So the real question is not, “Am I beautiful?”  The question is, “Whom should I ask?”  Ask the Father.  Ask the God who made you more beautiful than you can even imagine. You are beautiful to Him without even trying.  You don’t have to change or perform.  You just have to be.
