10/49: The Beauty of Your Strength

Wednesday


Psalms 86:15 (ESV) But you, O Lord, are a God merciful (compassionate) and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 

Godly beauty draws from a need to ‘help’, Godly strength draws from truth and sound judgment. 

If beauty’s truth leans too much toward situational pity, purpose is overshadowed by lies that defeat the true design of ‘beautiful strength’.

The Beautiful Truth: We are designed to thrive working with others, helping one another with the talents and the supernatural abilities that makes each of us unique. We shine brilliantly when we use the best parts of us to help others.

Worth noting: Low self esteem withdraws compassion from self and others with lies about self-worth. 

Things to ask yourself: Do I ‘railroad’ conversations with my opinions too often?  Regarding another’s needs: do I give it my all? Or, do I give just enough? Do I pity myself or others excessively? How do I define a ‘need’?

Today practice beautiful honesty with yourself. If you are ‘filling a need’ today, be sure you are drawing from truthful definitions of ‘need’. Be patient in your discoveries.
