“Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.” Proverbs 31:30
It seems ironic that we as women and men we will use every anti-aging serum and cream advertised in magazines to ward off the evil lines that tell us we are getting older, yet somehow we want the wisdom we get that comes with time and experience, often associated with a certain look of “maturity.”
Do we hang our hats on our inward posture before our Holy God the way we do our outward appearance before the world? We need to care as much about growing in patience, kindness, and gentleness as we do having a perfectly coiffed braid. Are we loving our neighbors well, with more fervor and intention than it took to select that stylish outfit?
I encourage you today to spend daily one on one time with God, reading His Word, letting it soak into you and speak to you. Pray with a heart of gratitude, asking for guidance so that you are learning what He wants to teach you. A little time with Him every day will change your inward and outward countenance.
