This morning satan put terrible thoughts in my mind but quickly God took them away with Biblical scripture and led me to read about inner beauty. All of a sudden out of no where these terrible thoughts came into my mind regarding my physical beauty. The thoughts were that I don’t measure up to physical beauty because I am somewhat overweight. I started to cry about this because I have been trying to lose weight but for health reasons and it is a struggle for me. I used to be able to stick with a very strick diet program and now I just can’t do it. However, I do eat lowfat and healthy but it is hard to get off the 15 pounds that I need to lose. My human nature does want to be beautiful and slim for my physical appearance for my husband. He does tell me that I am beautiful but it hard for me to accept what he says. The Holy Spirit is convicting my heart not to focus on physical beauty and immediately in the middle of my crying these Biblical verses came to my mind in 1 Peter 3: 3-6 Your beauty should not come from outward odornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
