Inner Beauty

The past two months I have been praying to God every night. “God please give me your love so that I may love everyone the way you love them and help me be more like you so I won’t reject anyone.” I felt like God has been working in me and is answering my prayer. The past week I’ve just randomly felt happy and today I’ve been like it all day.

I know my prayer is far from being fully answered because I know I will still make fun off, laugh at, jeer at, make fun of people. I don’t want to. I feel guilty everytime the way I’ve acted and wonder why I’ve been doing that. I know it is the work of the devil. He wants me to do it and is pushing me towards it whenever I come into a situation where I have to choose not to or to laugh at or make fun of someone.

I’ve also been reading some books by Bryan Davis. He is an amazing Christian writer. He takes life lessons and Christian teachings and things from the Bible and sticks them into a beautifully well written stories about love, friendships, treachery, regret, truth and most of all God. One of the things that was perfect for me as a guy was the main character in the book. Nathan. His father would always tell him. Treat Ladies, Women, well and show them that they are worth loving. I know lots of girls struggle with they don’t think they are beautiful, worth loving, etc. They try to cover it. I know I have never felt a problem with my look. Mostly because I am a guy. I send this message out to all Ladies, Women, girls. You are worth loving and are beautiful. No matter what anyone says if anything the Lord of the Universe who is aboving everything else. Loves you. Same with guys anyone who feels left out, rejected, lonely, anything like that the God who created the universe loves you.

I have made myself a commitment with the love God is pouring into me. With his help I will try to love everyone around me and treat Women with the love and respect they deserve even when they think they don’t. I’ve seen all over media everything of celebrities etc. creating these goals, images of what they say beauty is. I say they are wrong. Beauty is what is in your heart. Even if you have had a horrible past and think that no one could love you. It doesn’t matter what happened. No matter what. You are worth loving. I hope other guys will also take this up. It is part of our job as men.

1 Peter 3:3-4

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.

Song of Solomon 4:7

You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.

  1. I love those verses from 1 Peter, thanks for writing this — reminding us that true beauty comes from within and from God’s love.
