06.29.21 Please hear me, Girl: The world has enough women who know how to do their hair, by Ann Voskamp

The world will say they will love you if you are beautiful—but the truth is you are beautiful because you are already loved.

Because He who is Love loves you unconditionally.

Please hear me, Girl: The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs women who know how to do hard and holy things.

The world has enough women who live a masked insecurity. It needs more women who live a brave vulnerability.

The world has enough women who are trying to do it all—spending everything they’ve got to be found in the crowd.

It needs more who are doing the only thing that is necessary—spending time at His feet, being found and known by Him.

We need more women who would rather be beautifully sacrificial than perfectly artificial.

Don’t let Hollywood define it; let the pages of Truth define it: Romance is a long sacrifice.

Say that quiet to yourself at the mirror, over the stove, over the toilet bowls, and let your soul feel the caress of God who knows: Romance is a long sacrifice.

And then it will happen to you like it happens to all the women who are soul beautiful and loved:

For a beautiful countenance—count blessings.
For beautiful lips—only speak words that make souls stronger.
To carry yourself with poise—carry each other’s burden.
For the most beautiful shape—simply live with one hand receiving all as a gift, and the other hand giving away the gifts. You becoming the shape of a gift

Becoming the shape of a Cross.

Go ahead, Girl, run your hands wild through your hair and smile unashamed and be at peace in the fullness of you and pour your beauty out like an alabaster perfume:

Beauty doesn’t live in your skin.

Beauty lives in the lining of your heart.
