A gentle and quiet spirit

This week has already been very busy and so I really needed to take time this week to begin my day in prayer and meditating on God's Word more than ever!.

1 Peter 3:4 -rather, let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

As a Christian woman I should strive to have an attitude that is not demanding and harsh, but soothing and tranquil.

Father, help me focus more on inner beauty, which will not decay, and less on outer beauty such as makeup, jewelery, and clothes.

But there is a kind of beauty that will never fade, that is precious in the sight of God, And, amazingly, those beauty secrets are found in the letters of John. John tells us how to grow in beauty, so that one day "we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming." (1 John 2:28 NKJV).
