- ] The same goes for you wives: Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. What matters is not your outer appearance—the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes—but your inner disposition.
How many times to we hear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder? How many more times do we feel like we have no beauty..inner or outer? Society paints this picture of what beauty should be when in reality it never measures up for the ordinary people. We should feel beauty everywhere we go when we are in Christ. In some cases He has brought us through the worst of valleys into marvelous light but we for some reason can only see the darkness because of others reactions to our lives.
Love turns pain into beauty. This I know for a fact. How you ask? I have a husband who with the love of God has brought me back to life. Now I am not saying that my former husband did not love me or find me attractive, it just was hidden under years of turmoil. As the drug addiction progressed, my former husband lost sight of what love really was and it became very warped for me. I lost sense of who I really was and I felt everything but beauty inside or out.
When I say beauty is God’s I simply mean He created us in His likeness and He is beauty beyond any compare, therefore, if we are created in His image, we are beautiful. Life can throw us some tough punches sometimes but God turns all those into beauty marks. We are stronger after the pain and so long as we keep looking to God for the provision and answers, He will continue to grow us stronger and give us inner beauty.
