I can’t believe it’s been almost ten years since I experienced today’s God encounter reflection. I actually started asking God “Am I beautiful?” back in 2005. Then in 2015, God gave me the “Beauty has Purpose” vision. I feel like I am due for another vision next year in 2025. Can’t wait!!
The fourth aspect of beauty that God showed me was that beauty has a purpose. Here is an excerpt from the original blog post. God had directed me to the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina to see a tour of the estate. To see the original blog post click here.
“All the people around me were excited about a tour, but me, my life was going to be transformed with this experience at the estate. God was moving in my heart, and I had so much anticipation to get in through the doors. I got my ticket for the tour and got my little headset to hear about the history of each room. ROYALTY…. R to the O to the Y to the A to the L to the T to the Y!!! I felt like ROYALTY. I felt like I found my home. Walking into each room, there was a total of 250 rooms in the estate. The estate included 35 family and guest bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, three kitchens and 19th-century novelties such as electric elevators, forced-air heating, centrally controlled clocks, fire alarms, and my favorite a call bell system. In the tour, we didn’t get to see all of the rooms, but enough to get the idea of the design and the way of life. I felt something ignite inside of me. I felt an experience that was so personal and it had my creative juices FLOWING. I had visions of a grand place like this as a place for women to go to discover their beauty. I saw a beautiful farm to table kitchen and restaurant. I saw a spa that had the views of the mountains off the balcony in the back of the estate, I saw grand libraries to fill our heads with knowledge, I saw grand closets with designer clothes, I saw luxurious vanities with the best make-up and skincare and treatments. I saw grand dinners, tea parties in the beautiful flower garden, I saw a place where women would find their home. They would return to their status of Royalty. An experience that would show them their worth and remind of them of why they were created and what it is they are here to do.
This is where a passion inside of me was birthed to create an experience where women could feel all of these things. I felt God impress upon my heart to create a blog, a virtual place where women can go to experience not only the rejuvenation and restorations of their bodies but the rejuvenation and restoration of their souls. I hope the blog has given you this sense and I am praying for God to reveal to me how I can create a physical space like this, that would be an inner-beauty incubator, once a woman came through the front doors of this place she would never be the same when she left. Just like me at this estate”
Oh how I love to read this blog excerpt, I often visit it to remind myself what the Lord showed me.
Habakkuk 2:2 says,
“And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.”
I came across this scripture soon after the vision download and wrote it down on the blog to share with others. I am so glad that I did.
Now after coming out of the inner beauty incubator, I see that the vision God gave me was reflective of Isaiah 60:1-5
“1 ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech. 8:23.]
2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa. 60:19-22; Mal. 4:2; Rev. 21:2, 3.]
3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isa. 2:2, 3; Jer. 3:17.]
4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Ps. 119:32.]”
Multi-dimensional beauty calls us to something way bigger than ourselves.
Jeremiah 33:3 says,
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
God, our heavenly Father is doing so much work in the world and He wants to reveal His work to you. He shares these insights with us not because He needs us to make it come to pass but because He wants to bless us with a role in the family business. He wants us to be a part of it with Him.
Without a vision, the people perish. God wants to download a vision for your life.
How will you know if you have arrived, if you don’t know where you are going? As a person who loves data analytics and strategy, I love it when God shows me that He is the master strategist. He is giving me the destination/vision and then leading me step by step on the path to making His vision come to fruition.
What is the Heavenly Father doing here on earth that He wants to partner with you to create? Will you come closer to Him to allow Him to download His vision into your heart? Will you join Him in this adventurous and joyous journey He has already laid out for you, should you accept?
Doesn’t the vision sound AMAZING !!??!!! Yes, I know you might be thinking how does the castle vision correlate with Isaiah 60? Creatively in my mind, I see it so clearly. I can’t wait to share it with you. Until the physical space is available, you can now experience the inner beauty incubator online via our Restoration Retreat =)! You don’t have to wait. Feel free to send me an email at email@example.com for more information. Until next week, stay warm and be radiant.
