How to Discover Your Beauty

What is Our Beauty?

After much time in isolation, I began to hear from God when I asked him how he sees my beauty.  The first thing He revealed to me was what is my beauty.

Scripture says;

“O my love, you are altogether beautiful and fair. There is no flaw in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7

Before we go any further, in scripture Christ references his church (Christians) as his bride.  The same way a groom feels for his bride on his wedding day that is how Christ sees us.  My favorite scripture that references this is Ephesians 5:25-27 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water.”

That being said, the setting in Song of Solomon is a love poem about a newly married bride and groom. It is a poetic story of how much this bride and groom passionately love one another.  So in the verse Song of Solomon 4:7  the groom says to his bride “O my love, you are altogether beautiful and fair. There is no flaw in you.” I bolded the words that stood out to me as I read this scripture. Here we get insight on how God both; sees and defines our beauty.

 

Today I am going to focus on the word “Altogether”, here God defines what is our beauty.

I looked up the definition of “Altogether” it is as follows;

  1. wholly, entirely, completely, quite
  2. with all or everything included
  3. with everything considered, on the whole

 

God revealed to me that my beauty is way more than my external. It’s everything from my personality, gifts, skills, talents, character, my unique qualities like my laugh, my mannerisms, my voice, my natural scent, my voice, the look in my eyes, my purpose, my ethnicity, my gender, my age, and on and on and on.

He showed me that my external beauty is a small portion of my beauty. My beauty is defined by my self-worth and value.  My beauty is everything about me as a whole as He created me and not the way I see myself.

 

Love in abundance,

 

Jamie
