You look fat!! You will fall sick soon!! You are dark!! These words are the worst nightmare of a woman. This world is a pile of criticisms and gossips and it is very hard to convince and correct them. Instead we must learn to overcome and adjust to it with the help of the scripture. We are not living in this world to please the people with our beauty and attire, but we are here to please our Creator with the blessings He has given for us to enjoy and learn until He comes.
We are not created by the scientists or not through evolution, but by the wonderful God, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis:1:27”. We got His image and then why there is a need for worrying. We are worrying over our external beauty; do we really care about our internal beauty? God knew already how to form us and who we really are and that is what the scripture portrays, “For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. Psalm: 103:14”. “The LORD God formed man of thedust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis: 2:7”.
While we worry about our external beauty there are certain people who born with no limbs, blind, deaf and other deformities. Yes, they have worries too but they know to thank God for their life because we are fearfully and wonderfully made, “I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are your works,and that my soul knows very well. Psalm: 139:14”. So we must also learn to praise God for everything He has done for us. We all remember the blind man from the scripture that was healed by Jesus Christ. The disciples asked Him “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. John: 9:1-3”.
No matter if we are fat, dark, blind and deaf and born with deformities because it is not our parent’s sins to be blamed but the purpose of God,God, for He knew us and our frame before we were knitted in our mother’s womb. God want us to live a purposeful life, He created everything and everyone for a purpose, and like the purpose with the blind man was displayed our purpose will also be displayed at the right time.

Use these beauty tips to make you look beautiful inside and share these to other women who are in need of internal beauty enrichment. So do not worry about what people say behind you. You are beautiful and pleasing in the sight of the Lord. Guide your mind and soul in the right path and take good care of your internal beauty. He is the one who created us and everything there in the universe and it was good in His sight, “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. Genesis: 1:31”. Let us together learn to thank God for creating us fearfully and wonderfully.
