Beauty & Wait

I am really enjoying the Scripture Memory Challenge. It's been fun studying the different words and how they're used in the Bible. I got a bit behind last week and didn't get my Scripture Card done. oops! So, this week I did both of them.

Week #3's word was Beauty

The journaling says: Praise for physical beauty is short-lived because that type of beauty fades but a woman that fears the Lord is worthy of praise for the rest of her life.

Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30

It never struck me before in this way, but the Bible says there’s beauty in holiness.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Psalm 29:2
This week's word is: Wait
The journaling says: Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14

The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:25-26

It’s so hard to wait quietly but it’s comforting to know that the Lord will provide strength to do so.
