“Evil may appear to look good, yet it’s nasty smell and beauty of imagery quickly fades away, leaving truth and love to stand alone with time in it’s hands.” ~ Jon Barnes
Your beauty cannot be copied, given, or altered, but it is the image of the source, which is given to each of us, by God. The time you spend doing good works of faith paints images of your beauty inside the heart of God, creating music excepts and compositions in Heaven. God’s precious gifts are not for sale.
From the crown on your head lie an invisible glow of honor, respect, and focus to execute Beauty in love with your words and works, because God gave you the authority to represent Him honestly in ways that are wonderfully pure, simply to the point. The shadow of the All-Mighty covers and protects your beautiful soul, from the crown of your head to the soul of your feet.
The many precious jewels God has given us from the fruit of the Spirit shoot rays of light in all directions, like a twinkling star in the night. The devil wants to steal them from you with lies, distractions, divergence, and fake disasters. But God’s true believers have protection about them, with their prayers of faith, rich in action, shooting at the devil daily, instantly, consistently. This nonstop prayer, praise, and purpose are the New Testament of Love in our hearts that connects us to God and covers us with the Blood of Christ with redemption, repentance, and recompense that never fades away.
Are you soul(ed) out of God’s Beauty, because you are looking in the mirror of pride, make-up, and fake beauty?

2 Peter 1
1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:
2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
Confirming One’s Calling and Election
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Prophecy of Scripture
12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”[b] 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit
