Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; is one of the truest statements ever made.
Beauty is far deeper than outward appearances. Beauty is the heart, mind, and soul of a person. The compassion, love, caring, actions and understanding that makes a person beautiful.
The outward appearance is but a pretty shell that changes with time, but inner beauty lasts a lifetime. When one sees this inner beauty in a person and in their own self; it is then that one’s appreciation of true beauty shines.
Love yourself and others for the real beauty. Find the beauty in yourself. Find the beauty in everyone you meet. Find the beauty in the world.
1 Peter 3:4 NIV Rather, 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.
Have you ever really thought about who is truly in your corner when you need someone? Who is there to help you fight your battles? Is it someone, is it God, or is it both?
Boxers always have people in their corner when they need them. The manager to give advice and throw in the towel when he knows it is time for their safety. A cut man to patch them up during the bouts, and a physician in case one is needed. They rely on them at all times.
We like boxers, need that help too. We all have friends that are willing to help with things when we need them, but having those or that one person that is in your corner is a different story.
It is a story of trust, confidence, reliability, dependability, faith, hope, being humble, and acceptance of help. Knowing that someone is there that has your back in every situation, no matter what (withstanding something that breaks the law). The comfort that someone is really there for you night and day, 365 days a year for anything you need, both physically, mentally and spiritually.
Knowing that no matter what it is, that they are in your corner without expectations, and that everything will be completely confidential and will never let you down there. That person that cares for you enough to help in every way they can and will never leave your corner.
Do you know who is in your corner? Are you in someones corner? Are you willing to be there for someone and be in their corner? Is Christ in your corner?
Be that peace of mind for someone and be in their corner. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you had someone in your corner? Who is the cornerstone of your life?
Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Acceptance is a characteristic that all desire at some point in their lives. That feeling of approval that provides a sense of belonging.
Accepting someone for who they are, not for what they should be, or have; seeing the person for their physical being, their hearts and minds, their true inner self, and embracing them without expectations or judgement. Loving and caring for them, for their good sides and bad, their past and present lives, and supporting them no matter what, so that they may see and feel a true acceptance in life.
Being accepted without fear of judgment, condemnation, malice, failure and the sense of not measuring up can and will change a persons life.
Love and accept everyone as you would want them to do for you with an understanding, nurturing, kind heart and open mind.
Philippians 4:5 NIV Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
