• “O beloved friends, there is a life on wings. I feel the streams of His life fill me and permeate my mortal frame from my head to my feet, until no words are adequate to describe it. I can only make a few bungling attempts to tell you what it is like and ask the Lord to reveal to you the rest. May He reveal to you your inheritance in Christ Jesus so that you will press on and get all that He has for you.” – Carrie Judd Montgomery

What Makes a Woman? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/12/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Open any magazine and you’ll get a picture of what the world considers a beautiful woman. But what does the Bible say?

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment; instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.”

Nancy: Do you focus more time and effort on outward beauty or on inner, spiritual beauty?

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Nancy: Are you more concerned about your relationship with God than about being fashionable or physically attractive?

“I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety.”

Nancy: Do you dress modestly? Do your clothes encourage men to have pure thoughts?

Our culture sends so many messages about what it means to be beautiful. Are you going to go with the world or with the Word of God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
