Teen Girl Series: Whats on the inside?

I really like makeup. Its fun to wear and experiment with, but its not what’s on the outside that counts. It’s what is on then inside that matters the most, because once you take off all the makeup your left with reality. Not to sound harsh, but it’s the truth. I know this is a weird way to start off talking about beauty, but beauty is very deep. What is on the inside shines through. So no matter how you coverup, the real you will come through.
As in Matthew 23:27 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness." As we see in this verse we can look beautiful on the outside, but be dirty on the inside. So no matter how we clean up on the outside, all that gunk inside is still there and needs to be dealt with. We can fake it and pretend to be okay while we are all made up, but truth is there is something deep within us that wants to be set free. Even though not a lot of people would admit to that. There is always a longing for something more. Something that makeup can not cover up, or give you.

1 Corinthians 7:31 "And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth way." The things of this world are passing away. Not saying that makeup is a bad thing, because I love wearing it. Just be careful and don’t be fake. Remember God made us in his image, we are all beautiful.

Ask him to come into your heart and cleanse you of all the junk that is in you. All of the bad things you’ve done or thought of, he will forgive you of them all. You just have to ask him too. He will make you a brand new person and you will feel more beautiful and clean than you ever have before.


Teen Girl Series: Key to your Heart

Who would you give a key to your car or your house to? And how many people would you give that key to? Not many I hope, accept someone you can trust.

Then why would you giveaway the key to your heart to just about anyone? (meaning having sex with someone or multiple people or falling in love all the time) Why not wait for that one person (your future husband or wife) to give that key to. Most importantly give your heart to GOD.
One of my favorite quotes is, "A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her." In that sense when the man seeks God to find that woman, he will be given the key to her heart by God! And then he can unlock her heart, when the time is right. From scripture 1Timothy 4:12 tells us "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
God holds purity very high, not just sexual (Which that leads into spiritual) also your mind and body as well. You need to think pure thoughts and not bad ones. You need to treat your body as a holy temple of God, because Jesus lives within us once we are saved.
