Poem of Thought

        


The Beauty Inside

 

How wonderful it is to be Your bride 
In Your heartfelt care Your love does show
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

When in this world my heart did divide
You dried my tears, this I know
How wonderful it is to be Your bride

And now with You as my spiritual guide
My heart is healing as love does grow
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

They say beauty only goes skin deep
But to this I know to be a lie
As from within is where beauty is keep

Some only know what's seen with one's eye
In not looking inward to one's heart
No matter how hard some do try

 

Beautiful one's soul that God did impart
How wonderful it is to be Your bride
In giving me a beautiful restart
Thank You Lord for the beauty inside

Thoughts: Although it is important to keep up one's appearance in making one feel good about themselves, more important it is to take care of one's being inside; after all, God gave us a soul to groom, as well. In this, as Christians, the Lord Jesus Christ is our spiritual guide and we are His bride. He is preparing us for our union in heaven with Him, maturing our spiritual being to a place of beauty when we are accepted into heaven. Jesus can take one's being from the worse past ever and blossom it into a beautiful present and future with Him. But it is up to us to accept this transformation from dormancy to beauty in preparing our beautiful souls for our union with Him. It's sad that in today's society, it seems, some live only for outward appearance. Even more sad, is how media plays a major role in the importance of this now outward appearance society making it hard to see beyond one's own sight. We enter this world as babies with the innocence of a beautiful soul. And, although some may have a tuff start in life, once one matures into adulthood, it truly is up to us to keep that beauty God gave us. Even if one is back and forth with maturing spiritually-as was I-one can still, at some point, make an effort to see beyond outward appearance in maturing one's beautiful God given soul. I've gone down some hard roads and it took a very long time for me to realize I need to be prepared for my reunion with my spiritual husband, Jesus Christ. In preparation, I knew my soul needed a revamping. I also know I have a ways to go before I am fully prepared to be the spiritual bride Jesus meant for me to be; however, I thank Him for the opportunity-beyond my past-to grow out of His love the beauty inside.
