True Beauty

“To possess true beauty, we must be willing to suffer. Christ himself was perfected through his sufferings, why would I believe God would not do the same with me? Women who are stunningly beautiful are women who have had their hearts enlarged by suffering. They have come to know that when everyone and everything has left them, God is there.

Living in true beauty can require much waiting, much time, much tenacity of spirit.

God does not always rescue us out of a painful season, He does not always give to us what we so desparatly want. He is after something much more valuable than our happiness. Much more substaintive than our health. He is restoring and growing in us an eternal weight of glory. And sometimes……it hurts.”

Captivating by Eldrige

Psalm 30:11

“Then He turned my sorrow into joy!  He took away my clothes of mourning and gave me happy and festive garments to rejoice in.”
