A New Face

I want a makeover! Have you ever watched those shows on television where they take you in at your very worst.......you know you are in your sweats, hair needing color, no makeup, wearing your husbands jersey from high school and they make you look like a million dollars? They help you look ten pounds thinner, they cut your hair or style your hair like a movie star, they help you find clothes that are just the right color and size for you and "Wallah!" there is a new you! They form your outward appearance to the very best you can be.

I don't expect that I will ever get one of those much needed makeovers, not for my outer self anyway! I am seeking an inward renewal though. I want the Lord to shine so much on the inside of me that my heart cannot contain it and the glow radiates through my eyes and my countenance! I want that His glory on my face that I have seen on other's faces. It is more beautiful than anything else I have ever seen.

You can't buy it.........Wal-mart could never stock it on their shelves, but it is the best you could ever find! It brings a beautiful glow to the face so that the most simple of faces become so magnifying. You are just drawn to look into their eyes. You know there is a Presence there. It is indescribable. You have to see it to believe it.

Those makeover shows would never work on the radio. You have to see the transformation to believe it. They do an amazing job! It fascinates me and makes me wonder what in the world they would do with me!!!!

It cannot compare with a heart that has been made over and a countenance that has the glory of the Lord's presence all over it. It really can't! That is the makeover I am seeking. One that will radiate the Lord's presence. It is free. It cannot be bought or sold, but it is costly. It takes time in the presence of the king. So I must close for now. He is waiting for me!

Blessings,
Cheri

Beautiful Cheri.
More than a "face-lift", I desire a "faith-lift". Man may look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.

I know He rejoices when He looks at your heart - it is such a treasure of godliness. It's obvious you spend time with your King.

Blessings,
Joy

A "faith-lift" that is exactly what I was trying to say in two words!
Thank you for your sweet, sweet encouraging words!

You are a blessing of JOY!!!!

Oh' girl you are beautiful inside and out. Remember outer beauty is fleeting, it is the heart that the Lord sees, and He sees purity and beauty in yours!
Love you!
