So, as you know already: I am a woman. Lol! That means every now and then, you will find something just for ladies on my blog. While CPYF is for everyone, I can’t help but speak to my fellow women from time to time. It is important to remind ourselves of who we are in Christ and not allow anyone else determine our worth. The good news is that there is also a section for men and you can find it under the categories. I am not a man but thank God for great examples such as my one and only hubby, who I can draw from.
This write up below was on FB some time back but I have just tweaked it a tiny bit.
As a woman, don’t be so engrossed with your outer man at the detriment of your spirit man. We have the tendency to get so carried away with the latest hairstyles, makeup, jewellery, etc that we pay more attention to what matters to humans than what matters to God – our spirit man. Each time you look in the mirror, and when you are around others, your spirit man should be radiating first, not your lipstick. No wonder the bible makes mention of this because the truth is that if care is not taken, we may find ourselves flourishing outwardly while our spirit is as dry as the desert. Go after the Word of God until it is dwelling richly inside of you (Colossians 3:16). Pay more attention to building your spirit than you do, to enhancing your physical appearance. I am not against looking good; yes do look good, yes, do feel good but make sure your spirit man is in a much brighter state!
“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight” (1 Peter 3:3-4)
