How much do people spend to make themselves more so?
Who do you consider to be beautiful and why?
Beauty comes from within, the same goes for ugliness.
What is inside of your heart will come out! Others will see it and either be lifted up or cast down themselves.
"A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken."
One's countenance is a combination of facial appearance and body language. If you are happy and joyful, your countenance will reflect that inner sunshine upon your face, in the way you carry yourself and interact with those around you! Likewise, when your heart is troubled by worry, loss, fear, trouble etc. your bearing of sadness will show. Others will be dragged down by the latter when they see your depressed appearance.
The best facial there is, is a smile! A genuine, heartfelt, delighted to be alive and serving the LORD, smile :) A happy face is a wonderful thing that will lift those around you up and set them on a joyful path just by seeing how peaceful and content your heart is by the look on your face!
How does one get such a merry heart? It is a choice, one which must be made every day. When adversity does arise, then one must take it in stride or rule one's spirit. (Pr 25:28) One may be cast down from time to time, but must never allow the destruction of one's spirit (2 Cor 4:9)
When we think of heaven and the Lord Jesus Christ, what He has done for us and has gone to prepare for us, what can possibly cast us down?! Let us remember to count our blessings and dwell on His promises to cheer our hearts.
Is there not a Cause?
