Why are we so focused on us being beautiful? Why are we so focused on our happiness?
Life is not about being happy or feeling beautiful. Life is not about being entertained by the things on this planet. Life is not about signing in to your blog and scrolling the hours away. Life is not about watching MTV or Nickelodeon. Life is not about beating every level on a video game.
Life is about glorifying God. Life is about getting out there and serving Him with everything that we have.
When we fast, it’s not just a break from a certain thing or pass-time. We’re supposed to be filling the time that that item or event took up with servitude to God; learning more about Him and teaching others about Him and being active in His community.
So what’s stopping us?
Other than occassional mascara or lip balm, my face will be free of make-up!
I will do this until the end of April and see where that gets me :)
Why am I doind this? Because God’s shown me how obsessed I am with making sure my face looks perfect before I leave the house. Not only is this physically unhealthy(for my skin), but it’s also spiritually unhealthy when I rely more on make-up than God to feel beautiful.
Make-up isn’t bad, but I’ve turned it into something bad. So I’m hoping and praying that God will bless me through this fast and will teach me many great lessons :)
