Help, I need my Make Up Bag!
It was a perfect Sunday morning.
My children had eaten breakfast, were completely dressed, and patiently waited downstairs.
Worship service started in thirty-minutes and considering we lived less than six minutes from the church, arriving on time was not going to be a problem.
Until I encountered this minor yet big dilemma-- I could not find my makeup bag.
How could this be?
Every cosmetic in that bag I desperately needed to give my face life.
Nearly ten minutes, I frantically searched inside my car, my purse, under the couches, and between the pillows for a makeup bag; not meant to be found.
Therefore, I had to make a decision, to look in the mirror and speak life to the woman who sometimes feels insecure about her deep acne scars, dark circles, and puffy eyes.
As I continued to prepare for church, the Holy Spirit reminded me that I am still crowned as royal without the concealer, foundation, and popping lipstick.
You are still royalty----
…on bad hair days.
…with mismatched hand and toe polish.
…because your beauty is from within.
Now carry yourself accordingly.
Side note: I did arrive at church on time and found my makeup bag—Whoo!
