Welcome to purposeful living today. Today we will look at what actually makes a woman beautiful?
This is a question that remains important in today’s technologically advanced society.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there were over 9 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2011, with 91% of them performed on only women. MarketLine reports that in 2010 the global make-up industry generated close to 35 billion dollars. Marketdata Enterprises, Inc. also reports that in 2010 the United States weight loss industry was worth 60.9 billion dollars.
Surprisingly, today there are lots of girls who post pictures of themselves on social networks and invite others to comment and like their looks by asking questions such as, "Do you think I’m pretty?" "How do I look?"
Well, this brings to note that the desire to be attractive is on the forefront of a lot of women's minds. So again, let’s ask the question; what makes a woman beautiful?

We live in a society that places a very high degree of prominence on physical appearance. Television, movies, magazines and billboards all display attractive people. We see men and women (more women) running to plastic surgeons, having many different kinds of procedures done simply to enhance their appearance. Our society is obsessed with physical beauty, and many women are caught up in this obsession.
A woman is to  be beautiful, God designed her to be that way (Psalm 139:14). Her skin, hair and other features were created to be soft and appealing, and her body was fashioned to be attractive and beautiful to men. A woman was designed to be attractive, and most women want to be beautiful. However, the physical side of beauty is just a small part of what makes a woman truly beautiful.
Our society places a high emphasis on the physical aspect of beauty and neglect the other elements that really make a woman totally beautiful. A beautiful woman is not just physically appealing; she is appealing in many different areas. Because our society so largely emphasizes the physical nature of beauty.

I want to explore with you all of the areas that make up true beauty and brings out the missing dimension in beauty.

Physical beauty:
This is the outer dimension of the beauty of a woman it is what can be seen with the physical eyes.
A truly beautiful woman is physically appealing. Not all women are gifted with perfection of physical features, but fortunately, this is not the only prerequisite for beauty. Women tend to take a critical look at their individual features and flaws and feel this is what makes them attractive or not, whereas a man tends to look at the overall impression a woman creates- beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

What a woman does with what she has is very important in making herself attractive. Physical beauty is really within the reach of any woman.

The physical beauty of a woman is expressed in the following ways:

1. Her make up: The fascial make up of a woman radiates her true beauty. Now, cosmetics was made to enhance your natural look and not hide it and give you something superficial. You are beautiful the way you look stop trying to look like somebody else. When you do that, you are simply saying to God that He did not create you well, He would have made you to look like...When it becomes excess, you are no longer giving Glory to God with your body... My dear, Let no one make you feel inferior because of your looks.

2. Her Fascial Expression:
I will talk on that enchanting smile... Smiling makes you more attractive and beautiful. Frowning takes away your beauty, research shows that people that frown usually get older than their biological age. A Popular aphorisms says “It takes 43 muscles to frown and only 17 to smile” claiming that a greater number of facial muscles are needed to produce a frown than to generate a smile are one such snippet of homespun wisdom; they have been a part of our cultural landscape for so long that no one now knows where it all began.
While there are no scientific basis for such claims (technically you need 12 muscles to do a true smile and 11 to frown. Smile always, it attracts you to be favoured and to be a favour to someone. A simile is a healer...

3. Healthy living: When a woman is healthy, she has an attractive glow about her. Good health adds more color to the face and skin and helps produce more energy. A balanced, nutritious diet and exercise plan will help a woman to have this healthy glow. It will also help to keep excess weight off and produce a more attractive physique. When a woman cultivates a healthy life style  she looks and feels more beautiful.

4. Love your femininity: Most women want to be like men, aka Tomboy. A woman should look like a woman, not a man. A woman can achieve this through her dress and hairstyle.
The Bible says women’s hair should be longer than men’s.A woman’s hairstyle and length can contribute to her attractiveness. Speak, dress, walk and act like the woman you are designed and created to be.

5. Modest Dressing: Our society teaches women to flaunt their physical attributes by displaying scantily clad women on billboards, magazines and most other media outlets. Many women feel they must also dress this way to be considered attractive, a lie from the pit of hell. This is not true. A fully clothed woman dressed in a modest, feminine way is very attractive. She is not only attractive, she gains honor and respect from those who see her. A woman’s body is designed to be attractive and arousing to men, and when a woman is revealing too much of herself in public, she is stirring up the wrong kind of feelings and will attract the wrong kind of attention. Dress the way you want to be addressed, you can't dress like a harlot and expect not to be treated as one ( Proverb 7:10). A truly beautiful woman aims for respect in the way she dresses.


Don't act like Jezebel whose agenda was to seduce a man with her appearance, in all you do, you are to glorify God with your body. Your body is not your own, it is better asserted this way:
"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Your beauty is to glorify God, winning souls for God and not for the devil to hell.
But is there more to beauty than what meets the eye?
Is physical beauty all there is to it? To be continued monday.

Dear friend, You can only become the woman that God wants you to be by you surrendering your heart to the lord Jesus. He is the only one that can make you the woman your husband will be happy with and ultimately He will be happy with your union. He wants to take away that negative mindset, that sinful life style and empower you by His Spirit to live for Him. 
You can invite the Lord Jesus in your life now by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
