Have you ever seen someone completely decked out in diamond jewelry, complete full face of the most expensive makeup, and the highest end fashion lines but they look like they are the most miserable people. Yes, makeup can cover dark circles, smile lines, discoloration, and other imperfections, but it will never “makeup” for a smile! 🙂
I love makeup. It is fun for me. I also love trying new things. So, this blog brings together 2 things that I enjoy and, so far, has given me happiness. However, I am sure that happiness is fleeting. I will get busy, I will get stressed, I will be trying to think up things to write about, and for a time things will get much too hectic to bring happiness. Things in this life are like that. They can bring happiness for a season.
Do you know that one thing that can bring eternal, never fading, always present happiness? It isn’t money, or family, or friends, or things, but it is the eternal love of Christ.
Ps. 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Makeup in my life is used to enhance the happiness that Christ has given me. To give off the glow of His Spirit which liveth within me. Yes, I still have days where I feel down or sad or overwhelmed, but that joy of Christ never fades away!
Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Want to know how you can have that joy? How you can have the joy that never fades away? How the joy of the Lord can be your strength?
Romans Chapter 10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
