Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, 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. 1 Peter 3: 3-4
Quiet has never been a word that would really describe me. I am sometimes far too loud and opinionated about things. I speak before I think. My mouth gets me into trouble...often.
I am working on this verse. Working on making it part of me.
I understand the outward adornment part....I get that. Don't have it perfected...at all, but I get it. I try to remember it as I spend too much time worrying about my clothes or my hair...ugh!
It's the whole gentle and quiet spirit thing that eludes me. Two of my very best friends are the very definition of "gentle and quiet spirit". I love them both and I know what it's supposed to look like.
I am working on it, asking God for His help so I can be the woman He wants me to be. I know I can't do it on my own.
