Beauty Secrets

If you watch TV or read magazines you are surely aware of the focus on beauty and looking youthful. There are ads for hair products, makeup, skin tanning, teeth whitening and face wrinkle toning. The emphasis is on fashion, style, and enhancing your appearance with lots of makeup and beauty secrets taking center stage. Yes, beauty secrets are popular although none of them really provide the true secret to becoming more beautiful.

The secret to beauty can not be purchased on-line or bought in stores. It is not published on blogs or written in a magazine ad. True beauty is more than skin deep. It requires no makeup, glitter, ink, or nail polish. True beauty radiates from the heart and emanates from the soul. It is centered in the love of God and is generated by a joy for life. True beauty glows because of the knowledge of promises made with rainbows. It shines through eyes modeled after the Father's. 

You are beautiful because you are made in His image. You are radiant because his spirit lives in you. There is nothing man-made that can enhance or improve the beauty you already possess. So smile! You are God's beauty.

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight."  1 Peter 3: 2-5
