Comeliness, Not Beauty

“Wake up Your Makeup!”

The article caught my eye because a woman my age wrote it after consulting with an associate of Bobbi Brown. Of course, I didn’t have everything needed on the list, but I used what I had. I thought it looked great! We headed out-of-town to meet Mom and my sisters for dinner.

My sister asked me, “Are you okay? You look tired.”

So much for waking up my makeup. Sigh.

(In her defense, I wasn’t feeling 100% and was sick the next day.)

Ezekiel 16:14, “Then your renown went out among the nations for your beauty. For it was perfect through My comeliness which I had put upon you, says the Lord God.” Modern English Version

“Comeliness: 1) Pleasing in appearance, attractive, fair. 2) Proper, seemly, becoming.”

At church on Wednesday night, Terri told me she enjoyed it when I played with the worship team. She said, “I watch to see you smile.”

That’s scary! When I hit a wrong note, I smile! I also smile when I feel God moving. (It’s difficult to explain. You just have to experience it.) 

I want God’s comeliness more than beauty. That means…

Less makeup – more smiles!
