Vanity and what the fleshly eyes call beauty robs the soul of its true allure. True beauty is found when all the surface appearances fade away, the heart is turned inside out and seeing straight thru it’s pain, the soul finds the Savior painting His canvas.
Gone is the passing fancy of all we compare ourselves to. His face with His shining grace becomes the only strength of captivating beauty we see. Textures of mercy, shapes of forgiveness, highlights of His hope flowing thru His blood etches true beauty upon the soul He breathed His life into from its conception. Etched upon the lines and wrinkles of our stretches towards His perfection. The soul sings, “Only in You, only in You…Holy holy holy is the Lord! The origin and true north of all things beautiful!”
One day we will all be given new bodies, free from the presence and violation of sin. It’s not that one day skin will be flawless, or legs lengthened, hair straightened or curled, colors of eyes brought to what we call perfection; no none of that will matter. For all we see will be illuminated by His light, transparent, free, vulnerable yet perfect. Like the atmosphere of our world. See His beauty, listen to Him teach you what it is. Throw out every idea of what beauty means to your external senses and let Him show you how to see hearts instead of bodies, souls that thru His eyes true beauty will reveal itself as Love, such love as He gives. Yes, often, according to man’s idea, blind Love. Blind to temporary states, eyes opened to His ever working, changing glory being painted in the halls of eternity. Seeing now in a dimly lit mirror, but the light growing ever brighter by the day, as He draws nearer and nearer the soul everyday. Nearer and nearer to His reappearing proving that death has no sting, decay is illusionary, and beauty is in His eye – The Beholder. Amen and amen!
