What’s Your Beauty Regimen?

Every woman wants to look and feel beautiful. My bathroom is filled with products designed to promote acne-free, glowing, soft, supple skin. There’s makeup for days I want to enhance my beauty.  There’s hair products, brushes and combs to keep my crowning glory looking good. Not to mention all of the electronic items…curlers, flat irons, blow dryers…need I say more? After all that somebody better notice, right? I know you do it for yourself…blah blah blah. But there’s nothing wrong with enjoying when someone else acknowledges our efforts. It certainly brings a smile to my face when people use the terms beautiful, fine, gorgeous, sexy, etc. etc. when referring to me. But you can’t let it go to your head, and you can’t let it make you lose focus on what true beauty is.  I have to ask, how often do you try to beautify yourself for God?

I recently learned about a global movement called 31 Status. It’s geared toward showing girls what the Proverbs 31 woman looks like today. If you’ve read my books, you know I’m all about women living for God and boldly taking a stand against how the world says women should behave, dress and love. Often, it contradicts what God says. So you know I heart these chicks and what they are trying to do. I went to their Facebook page and the founder, Lizzie Young, recently posted these words, “Your cuteness doesn’t impress God. He made it.” Simple, yet profound. So in our quest to beautify ourselves outwardly, we need to beautify ourselves inwardly with the righteousness, holiness and truth of our Heavenly Father. We impress and please God when we do what he has called his people to for him. For the ultimate beauty regiment get in his word daily. Pray.  Fellowship and learn from other Christians because as iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another. Now, in true Jae Henderson style I’m going to add to Lizzie’s statement…..

“Your cuteness doesn’t impress God. He made it. What else you got?
