REAL BEAUTY

Posted: December 31, 2011 in Poetry

Real beauty as they say comes from deep within

But it’s hard to believe when all everyone is searching for is outward beauty

Media, family, friends, yes, even the church

So long as you’re pretty then things go your way

So am left wondering, what about me, what about her who doesn’t think they are beautiful

Real beauty doesn’t come from outward adornment

It doesn’t come from braided hair and expensive clothes thus says the biblein 1 Tim 2:9

Real beauty comes from good deeds appropriate to those who confess His name

Real beauty is that of the inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit which is of worth to God

Real beauty is shown through modest apparel worn with shamefacedness and sobriety

For our dress should make the same profession we do

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised

I don’t know about you, but the bible is my standard

And so far, the bible has shown me that real beauty is found in God

For God, unlike man, doesn’t look at outward appearance

That figures, that what matters to Him is deep within

So you think you are beautiful, Let God be the Judge.

Grace and Peace.

Christ-Filled New Year.
