Over the next 4 Wednesdays, I would be delighted if you could join me in praying together for the beauty God sees in us [from the inside out] to become a part of our lives. Making us shine. And glow. In a culture that is obsessed with the way we look. As beauty is more than skin deep.
We will pray for inner beauty (heart, mind and soul) and outer beauty. As we study one of the most beautiful woman in biblical times (who went through 12 months of beauty treatments before she went before the king). Esther a woman after God’s heart.
She portrayed outer and inner beauty and was revealed as ‘a woman of clear judgment, of magnificent self-control and capable of the noblest self-sacrifice’ Herbert Lockyer.
For every Wednesday in January, my focus will be on –
Inner beauty qualities from the life of Esther, together with outer beauty tips.
As you pray for your own life. To become more beautiful in every aspect. Reflect on this prayer ~ ‘Mirror In God’s Hand’, by Paula J. Fox.
I want to be a mirror, Lord . . . A reflection of Your grace
To shine Your light for all to see
In every darkened place
I want to be transfigured Lord, so the image others see
Will be closer to Your likeness
And the light You’ve given me
I have no light source of my own . . . but when I look at You
The radiance of Your glory
Shines in all I say and do
I could stand to use some polish . . . I’ve been cracked and broken too
But it’s not myself that matters
It’s the light that comes from You
Though I have some imperfections, I’m still useful in Your sight
And in Your hand I know
That You will angle me just right
So that when Your face shines on me, it reflects on others too
And as it does, please use me, Lord
To LIGHT my world for You
