Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.- 1 Peter 3:3-4
I know what you’re thinking…Bianca, what are you trying to say that I can’t pamper myself and look good!?! No, that is not what I am saying.
God fearfully and wonderfully made you for greatness. BUT, you don’t need to make yourself turn into something you are not. In society, beauty standards vary. You see campaigns with the “pretty, beautiful people.” People are pressured to look and be a certain way from social media, Hollywood, and the people in general. You don’t need to limit who you are to please society. Just be you!! Wear makeup for you, dress for you, BUT also show your light, your spirit, your personality. Being beautiful on inside is more important than the exterior. I have struggled with self esteem for most of my life. I tried to please people while I hurt inside. I had to learn that I had to love me as me and not what anyone else thinks.
Just love who you are because God loves you. Your inner beauty should shine and the outside should be a compliment and not the sum total of your being.
