How to Enhance Our Inner Beauty

How to Enhance Our Inner Beauty

We had a local women’s fellowship yesterday afternoon, after our church worship service. I’ll make a separate post about it soon. This fellowship is a gathering of moms or wives, like me. We try to do this every 3 months so we can bond through games, God’s word, and worship.

Our last fellowship in June and yesterday was, of course, great too! They suggested that I should be their speaker. For someone who is among the youngest in the group, I was hesitant at first — what can I share with these people who are 10 years (or more) older than me?

How to Enhance Our Inner Beauty

Then I decided to do something fun. I talked about BEAUTY. We discussed enhancing our outer beauty,  then I brought with me a facial cleanser, cotton, and a peel-off mask. We had a little facial pampering session yesterday before I reminded all of us about our inner beauties, which is far more important.

1. Smile and laugh often

Of course, we all want to be happy all the time. Happy people are beautiful people. Nakakahawa ang pagiging masayahin. Here are few more good reasons why we should do this often.

  • Forcing ourselves to smile when we’re sad will actually elevate our moods.
  • Smiling can reduce blood pressure.
  • Smiling is a medicine.
  • Smiling is contagious.
  • Smiling is a form of exercise.

2. Avoid nagging

Nagging makes us look ugly – literally and figuratively. Seriously, who wants to hear a nagging person anyway? Masakit sa tenga, ‘di ba? I personally do not want a nagging person. However, I am not an excuse to this. There are times na bigla nalang dire-direcho yung rant ko.
There is a better way to say what we want to say and nagging is not one of it. In fact, the bible has something to say about a nagging woman. Proverbs 21:19 says:

“It is better to live in a desert land than with a contentious and vexing woman.”

3. Stay positive

This is another level 99 work! I have to admit this one is also hard to do. We can stay positive only if we don’t focus on the negative side of things. However, it is good that we strive to do it. One reason for that is in Proverbs 17:22. God’s word says:

“A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

This was what I reminded all of us yesterday – if we stay positive, all the other things above follows. We’ll nag less because nagging comes from focusing on the negative side, in return, we’ll laugh and smile often.

4. MOST OF ALL: Pray continually

If we are constantly talking to God, we become close to Him. The Spirit will then help us develop our characters into a person God wants us to be.

A good character means INNER BEAUTY. Ang sabi nga ng karamihan, kahit gaano ka pa kaganda kung ubod ng pangit ang ugali mo, pangit ka parin. 😀

How to Enhance Our Inner Beauty

Let me close this with another verse in 1 Peter 3:3-6. A very nice verse that reminds us not to neglect our inner beauty because this is more important above all.

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands,  like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.”

How about you, how do you enhance your inner beauty? 🙂

  1. You had a nice time of sharing how we can become beautiful in and out. There should be a balance between the two. Oftentimes we neglect one. My problem is nagging. Sometimes what I just want is to remind especially my kids pero madalas tunog nagging. I'm still a work in progress.

  2. Your idea is very nice, pampering session + words of wisdom. I agree with you, minsan kahit gaano kaganda isang tao, pag hindi okay attitude nakakaturn-off. So we really need to enhance our outer and inner beauty.

  3. Among these tips, the most challenging for me is the nagging part. Haha! I've learned to relax with the nagging when it comes to my hubby. But dealing with my six-year-old son is a different story. There are just times talaga that I can't help but nag him. Kulit eh! Haha!
