Fatal Attraction

That is what we have in America today, a fatal attraction, an attraction that has completely taken over how we think, act, behave, and how we worry about how we look.

You only have to turn on the television for 5 minutes and you are inundated with ads for facial creams and lotions to smooth, tighten, primp and improve. People are so consumed with how they look, that they hand over millions of dollars.

Whatever happened to the wrinkles on Grandma's face being a sign of a life well lived? Now women are so concerned with the smallest wrinkle, that they layer on the makeup.

Whatever happened to the calluses on our hands meaning a hard day's work? Now we are so concerned that we will break a nail that we don't want to risk the hard work.

Whatever happened to being concerned about what God thinks? God has blessed each and every one of us have different features that make each and everyone of us unique. Why would we want to cover what God has given us, under synthetic compounds that just make us look made up and fake? Is that any way to treat God's gift to us?

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting: but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised
Proverbs 31: 30

Proverbs 31 is the blueprint of what every woman should be. Take a minute and read it.

Instead of covering up what you have been given, instead of worrying what the world is thinking about the blemishes or wrinkles on your face, remind yourself that what they consider unattractive is a fatal attraction. But GOD, loves each and every one of those problem pimples and He created you in His perfect image. Worry about what He thinks and know that He made you beautiful!


  1. Casey,

    Even before I understood what living a life for Christ looked like, I fell in love with the Proverbs 31 woman. Although I fall short of her glory, she is a role model for all. Thank you for your thoughts in today's blog--very inspirational.

  2. Thank you stopping by today, Kim. I know what you mean. I long to be a Proverbs 31 woman. I often fall short too, more times than I can count, but I am so thankful that God is patient and forgiving. Have a wonderful day! :)

  3. I am actually memorizing Proverbs 31:10-31. I'm only to verse 16, but it is amazing how it is changing my outlook and my routine!
    Thanks for the thoughts!

  4. What a great passage to memorize, Megan! My final assignment before I graduated from home school high school was go through the chapter and write my thoughts for each verse and how I need to improve to be a Proverbs 31 woman. Great assignment and gave me much food for thought. :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
