It’s easier to cover a pile of junk- anger, pain, bitterness, low self Esteem on the inside by painting the outside beautiful.
But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7 KJV)
Positive Practice 108: The time spent working on what is going on inside me is more valuable than the time spent working on what I want people to see on the outside.
When what is on the inside correlates with what is on the outside, life becomes real, fun, authentic, genuine, beautiful, inspiring, fulfilling, healed, no cover ups, simple, priceless, …..that is what I will strive for, everyday.
To live inside out. To be beautiful on the inside first and to reflect that on the outside. To look at all the junk life has served me and to decline, to abstain from dining at that table in that darkness.
To choose what I fill up with and to glow with the vitality of the light of my beautiful soul.
I pray the same for you.
