If you are looking for the most effective beauty secret… and let’s be honest, what woman isn’t? The answer is love. The most beautiful, ageless women on the planet are women in love. And what man doesn’t wish to be married to a timeless beauty? With Father’s Day around the corner, this is a great time to give your man the gift of your beauty.
When you are in love, it’s as if a dazzling light flickers on inside you. It shines in your eyes, your words, your countenance, your selfless actions, your desires, etc. Love reflects radiantly in all that you are and all that you do. It’s the thing that makes a woman magnetically attractive.
When you joined in marriage with your husband you entered into a covenant love affair. A love affair so intimate; it is as if two bodies are physically joined together so that when one is hurt, the other suffers or when one feels joy, the other joins in the celebration—a one flesh relationship. Marriage is many things but above all, remember that it is an intimate, passionate love affair.
My husband and I make a great team. Together we can accomplish more than either one of us can alone. But like any couple we easily get swept up by the whirlwind of activity. Before long our marriage becomes dull. At these times I feel like I’m on autopilot, getting a lot done but going through the motions of marriage. That’s when the enemy creeps in and issues his attacks from all directions. Eventually, my love for Jim loses its luster and no longer stirs my soul.
So why does the enemy attack your marriage from every front? It’s because you are playing out a part in a living parable here on earth that has an infinitely more important heavenly meaning. Your love for your husband mirrors a believer’s (The Bride) love for her husband (Christ) to a watching world (which includes your children). Meaning that when someone looks at your love for your husband do they see the most powerful example of the love a believer has for Christ? How are brides to love Christ? Christ Himself said, “with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30).
With all your heart, soul, mind and strength – your total being! That means we love our husbands (and Christ) with all that we are, to the depths of our being. We are to love with all of our affections, desires, appetites, intellect, thoughts, purposes, pleasures… everything that is you!
It’s impossible to love your husband too much. Throw out all restraints. Love him wholeheartedly with everything you have. Like the woman who anointed Jesus lavishly with her expensive perfume, pour out your love lavishly. Love him passionately, extravagantly, with no limitations and every ounce of your being! You are meant to be a dazzling beauty in a love affair with the man you married. So how are you doing? Is it time for a makeover?
