• “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

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.

  • “My soul was filled and overwhelmed with light, and love, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and seemed just ready to go away from the body. I could scarcely refrain from expressing my joy aloud, in the midst of the service. I had in the mean time, an overwhelming sense of the glory of God, as the Great Eternal All, and of the happiness of having my own will entirely subdued to his will. I knew that the foretaste of glory, which I then had in my soul, came from him, that I certainly should go to him, and should, as it were, drop into the Divine Being, and be swallowed up in God.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
