Prov. 31:30

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting - but a women who serves the Lord is to be praised" Prov 31:30

I love this verse cause it brings me back quickly to what God finds admirable and beautiful in women. As as i have made it one of the many things i try to live by, i find it really hard to live as a Godly women and not by how the world lives. let me put that a different way - it can be hard not to think that beauty and charm etc is not important because it is important here -- and yes we are supposed to "live in the world but not of the world" But, it's just not easy. in fact ... it is very easy to get caught up in the fact that no one notices you unless your the perfect female picture. professionally as well as socially - and im sure it goes both ways to some extent and i'm not saying that guys don't have their own social norms they are "supposed" to live up too.

im just saying that living in a world as a female and trying to live by those words is hard- because - beauty and charm are two very important qualities to to humans - espcially a certain kind here in North America, what a person has "inside" personality wise comes in a distance second most of the time and the serving the Lord part is not even on the list of things a women should be in out society - it's not that im blaming them, but beauty is what it is and it isn't what is in the heart --- and we all like to think it is and after a guy finds you attractive then it would matter if you are a women who serves the Lord

anyway - i am still young and "got the rest of my life ahead of me" so to speak - and most of the time being the person i am for God's glory is enough for me - but my stupid human mind gets in the way sometimes and makes me feel like i'm nobody.

anyway - i do know that if it's in God's plan - someone out there will truly see who I am inside. I guess sometimes my insecurities get in the way of my good common sense - and i although i do know that God made me and my life for a reason - i get so caught up in my own self consciousness and forget that God put that careful thought into me - so im finished now - i just love this verse cause it reminds me that all of that stuff really isn't that important and that God and his plan for my life and living out his dreams for me is the most important thing in my life.
