The Beautiful Woman



Open any magazine and you’ll get a picture of what the world considers a beautiful woman. 

But what does the Bible say?

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment; instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit."  1 Peter 3:4 









Encouraged here?

  1. I've never been considered gentle or quiet. I've always had such passion and zest for life that it bubbles over. I am at war with trying to figure this out. How do the two go together?

    1. Hey Gby, I guess at one point in time the Holy Spirit molds us and teaches us how to be. I dont think its bad to be bubbly cause thats me all the way but I also notice that when i start getting out of hand with my loudness i feel the Holy Spirit tugging at my heart saying ok settle down. We can have wholesome fun and be bubbly but we also have to learn when to stop. If we need help Holy Spirit is there ready and willing to help us. I still need help in that area because before i came to Christ i was a loud mouth person n little by little He's changing me. Glory to God. I hope i helped a bit. Gby :)

  4. I believe that one can be passionate and zealous about something and still have a gentle spirit. When a woman finds her self-worth in Christ, her heart is at rest in Him and in His love for her. She then doesn't seek praise and attention from others around her. Asking the Lord to bring peace and rest to my soul and that my spirit will respond gently towards others.
    Thank you for this beautiful blog! It's such an encouragement!!!!

  5. I'm neither gentle or quiet. Sometimes I actually feel like I'm more aggressive and loud, more like a man, lol. Everybody is used to seeing me that way, how do I change it?

    1. If the Lord gave you an outgoing personality, I don't think he expects you to change it. It is how we live in the Spirit, and express the fruit of the Spirit that matters. Joy is one of the fruit.
