” You’re beautiful from head to toe, my dear love,
beautiful beyond compare, absolutely flawless. ”
Song of Songs 4:7
I found this verse today, and it impacted my heart in a huge way. These past 14 days have been a lot harder than I thought they would be. I usually don’t wear very much makeup. Only to cover zits and make me look a bit more awake with some mascara. But going out in the evenings I feel as though I look like crap. And here I was, trying to tell other girls they should “Believe that they are truly beautiful”. Well, lately I haven’t been feeling so beautiful, and how pathetic is it that I can preach it, but I cant take it. It has only hit me these past few days, that I believe this is God giving me a little nudge into what I am trying to do. Uplift. But the first step is finding my t r u e b e a u t y in H I M . Completely and entirely in him. Not in the worldly things, like makeup, but in H I M . I must search for him daily, and pursue him. I want Proverbs 31:30 to be the way I live my life!
No Makeup November has been a surprisingly difficult 14 days so far, but I can feel that I am truly learning to grow as a daughter in Christ as I give him a part of me that I have been controlling for years. Is there any No makeup November girls out there reading this? You are not alone. :]
This month, go without make-up to see the way our amazing God see’s you!
This world is bombarding us with make-up products, and how we “should” look, and it tells us what they think is true “beauty”. Lets take a stand to all of this money grabbing that is affecting the way we view ourselves, and show Gods true beauty in leaving our faces the way he meant for them to be.
My personal experience so far has been a positive, and uplifting one. I usually put on make up to cover zits, or imperfections, and I put on mascara to look awake. This month I am saying “Who cares!” to that and going el natural. Join me in this movement. Its not to late!
