I am back from California where I had a fantastic time road tripping with Fashionista Daughter. Due to Covid closings, we spent the majority of our time on the beach or poolside. It only took minutes for me to realize that my body is not what it used to be. I have never seen so many perfect bikini bodies. In a world that values youth and beauty, it can be pretty disheartening to face the fact that my body will never be like it once was. I am aging just like everyone else and well, that doesn’t always look pretty. HOWEVER I’m not losing hope because 2 Cor 4:16 tells me to NOT lose heart even though my outward body is wasting away, my inward spirit (soul) is being renewed every single day!!
My brother Peter used to say “I can’t wait for tomorrow” and when asked why he would reply “Because I get better looking everyday”. Even though he was just joking, there’s actually some Biblical truth there. Because I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, my soul, my inner beauty, is growing EVERY DAY! I am becoming more and more like Jesus. I think I’ll invest my time in my spiritual growth – there’s a much better return!
Bottom line: I am one hot JESUS BABE even if I don’t look great in a bikini.
