Dear Makeup, I just wanted to say thank you.
Not only do you take me from looking like a cadaverous wretch to …well, to something slightly less cadaverous & wretched… but as you transform me, you also remind me of an important principle:
Just as a few minutes applying makeup each day can change the outer appearance I present, a few minutes in God’s Word and prayer each day can change the inner reality I experience and project.
And if I should think that what I load into my mind and heart do not affect the words I speak and the thoughts I think…
…well, I’m just deluding myself.
It’s as clear to the people I meet as whether or not I’ve put on my makeup.
“For out of the overflow of [her] heart [her] mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45b).
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2a).
“A joyful heart is good medicine” (Proverbs 17:22a).
Praying you have a joyful heart today, friends, one that is made whole by God’s love and overflowing with His Word.
So, won’t you take a little time with me this week for reading God’s Word, spending at least as much time in spiritual application as we do makeup application?
