1 Peter 3:4 NIV
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
Viv asked us in Gideon’s Group what our life scripture was, this one is mine. I have many many scriptures that I turn to for strength, wisdom, guidance. But this one speaks to me on a deep personal level. It gives me love, strength, self-worth, acceptance, and hope all rolled into one perfect little harmonic chord that strikes and resonates a beautiful love song written just for me on my heartstrings. I battled weight problems most of my life and was ridiculed at school, at church, and in public. I never felt acceptance. I pushed past it to achieve but I was so broken deep inside, then this scripture spoke to me and I knew that God accepted me, that He was looking at my inward beauty and how man perceived me wasn’t important.
