Inspired by... beauty
I've found it!
100% guaranteed, anti-aging miracle and you'll never guess where...
...in God's word...
mouse over for original
... or what...
...a gentle and quiet spirit.
"Do not let your adornment be external... but let it be the hidden person
of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is precious in the sight of God."
When we adorn (put on) ourselves with a gentle and quiet spirit, God's word tells us that it will never age, never see decay.
So what is a gentle and quiet spirit? Does that mean we act like a wall-flower? or a door-mat? No.
Our spirit (as referred to here) is the power by which we think, feel and decide.
A gentle spirit describes a spirit of meekness, not weakness.
Meekness is "power controlled".
Consider this: Jesus was described as being meek.
A quiet spirit describes a calmness, a tranquility. We can ask ourselves: Does my presence comfort and soothe others? Are others able to be calm around me?
The adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit is precious in the sight of God. It is of surpassing value. Value that will never fade.
This Word is for every woman, regardless of your personality traits and can be achieved
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty if fleeting; but a woman
who fears the Lord is to be praised."
A big thank you to my Pastor's wife, who lovingly shared these insights which God had given her with us this past Sunday.
The photo (above) is textured with Kim Klassen's simplicity texture, which I think fits the commentary rather well. I encourage you to check out all the amazing contributions to this week's Texture Tuesday party, as well as the other inspiration linked below.
