Obsessed with outer beauty,
so are you,
so much so that you have neglected what matters most,
But I know different,
from the women,
I come from,
beauty is the least of their priorities.
They do not care if you are stunning,
all they need is how far you reach out,
to your Maker.
They value your relationship with Him,
more than the colours pasted on your face,
more than the size of your behind,
more than the notes in your purse.
For they know,
that He gives beauty for ashes,
strength for fear,
gladness for mourning,
peace for despair.
That is more than money can buy,
more than connections can offer you,
more than authority can command for you.
It is beauty that flows from within,
the beauty that makes all things new,
it is His presence,
it is Him personified.
