Still Looking Good

Still Looking Good

It is sad that a lot of women take their looks for granted once they are married. It's almost as if they just tried to look good to attract a man and after finding and catching him, she is done with her mission. This doesn't sound right to me yet this is a reality for a lot of women. Either they felt that looking good was too much work or they just didn't care anymore. What these women are forgetting is that looking good for their husbands make the husbands feel appreciated.
You see, a wife who doesn't care about how she looks is projecting an image that she doesn't care. On the contrary, a wife who takes good care of herself projects an image that she values herself. And a woman who values herself is also valued by the people around her. My husband calls me "precious" not only because he is doing his role in loving his wife but because he really finds me precious. I believe I rightfully deserve it because I value myself highly. I value this life and body that God has given me. I owe it to Him to take good care of it.
It doesn't take much to look good. It starts by appreciating yourself and the things and people around you. It comes from an inner knowing of who God made you to be... a unique individual endowed with gifts that are meant to be used to make this world a better place to live in, and all for the greater glory of our Creator.
Looking good starts from within and manifests itself on the outside. No amount of physical beauty can cover up for the lack of inner beauty. As Proverbs 31:30 says: Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain, but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!
There is no way for a woman who loves the Lord and who has an intimate relationship with Him not to look good, no matter what her age is. A woman in love glows and you see it all over her. This is why I know and believe that women who stopped caring about "looking good" is an indicator that something is not right inside of them.
We don't need anyone to make us feel good. If we rely on others, we will just get disappointed. In the same way, we shouldn't allow anyone to make us feel bad about ourselves. I don't care if your husband is not calling you precious. I don't care if your husband doesn't even show you that he loves you. All I know is that God, the great I AM, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, created you in His image and likeness. All I know is that Jesus loves you so much that He died on the cross for you. This alone should make you feel loved and special. This alone should make you feel so good. This alone will make you look good from the inside-out.
I want you to look in the mirror right now and tell yourself: You are created in God's image and likeness. Jesus died for you because He loves you. You are precious in His sight. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You deserve nothing but the best that God has to offer.
Then put that most beautiful smile on your face and don't take it off. Keep smiling. Put on something nice... a hat, scarf, shirt, shoes, or whatever you find nice that you can wear. Powder your face and put on a little lipstick. Brush your hair or curl it. Play some nice music. Get some good tea or coffee. Enjoy the beauty around you -- the trees, birds, sky, children playing, etc.
Don't settle for anything less than the best of what you rightfully deserve. Put some flowers on your table. Add some flavors to your cooking. Eat fresh bread and veggies. Use a nice coffee cup. Spray some cologne.
Don't stop doing something new everyday. Don't treat yourself like all you deserve is some cheap food and clothes. You can have them cheap without it looking or tasting cheap. One last thing I want you to remember is this...
God created Eve as the last creation. She was the "life" that was added to the already beautiful setting. This is who you are too. You are the bouquet of roses in the middle of a center table. This is who you are and who you should always be. Then you will see how everything around you will also turn beautiful.
