“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

This is inspired by the lady who writes on https://beautybeyondbones.com

Margaret Wolfe Hungerford who is widely credited with coining the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

The world’s view of beauty is based on what can be seen on the outside, whereas God sees the beauty on the inside or at least the potential of what we could be if we allow him to shape us into the beautiful person we ought to be

All to often we allow the world and the view of others to dominate our way of thinking of ourselves, “nobody would call me handsome” “I’m too plain looking” nobody will ever love me way I look”

All these and more are the lies we allow ourselves to belive, due to the world’s view

Stop for a moment and remember what the bible says Jesus would  look

“He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him.”Isaiah 53:2b

In this modern age, we are bombarded by images of celebrities, all considered to be beautiful by worldly standards, ladies with wispy figures that they of show off far too much

Men who are acclaimed to be handsome, so is it any wonder that normal everyday people think ourselves less worthy of even being noticed

But do we really need to be noticed and judge by a corrupt world?

The answer is NO

Not when we are loved for who and what we are by our loving farther, who sees you inside beauty and loves us even when we can’t love ourselves

While it is impossible for us to see  our inside beauty, we need to be aware the outside image we can see in a mirror, and others see is but a poor reflection of the true beauty within

One thought on ““Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

  1. Very True Graham, I could feel reading your message the passion you feel about Inner Beauty and yes True Beauty comes from the heart not the flesh and is only recognized by those who also have inner Beauty because they focus on other peoples strengths not on their weaknesses but not referring to sin, which we are to rebuke and warn about, sin makes you ugly inside and out.

    When I was younger Graham my focus was on outer beauty, my Mum was the same and my Sisters too, I ended up Bulimic trying to get the perfect figure, yes I succeeded but paid dearly for it with ill health and fear.

    I created a Power point years ago that focuses on inner Beauty perhaps you might like to see it Graham, I will leave a link for you but be warned it is had hitting, well at least for some.
