DIY Makeover Quote #9

"Style comes from knowing who you are and who you want to be in the world; it does not come from wanting to be somebody else, or wanting to be thinner, shorter, taller, prettier. Many of the most stylish women in the world have not been great beauties, but they have all drawn from an enormous amount of self-confidence. They made us think they were beautiful simply by believing it themselves."

from The Little Black Book of Style, by Nina Garcia

That is so powerful and so true. What a gift we have when we find our confidence in who we are in Christ. The gifts He has bestowed on His children give us confidence--we can go boldly before the throne of the King of Kings without fear of banishment, and with the knowledge that we are loved by the creator of the universe! If that doesn't give confidence and the inner peace that creates external beauty, I don't know what would!
Blessings to you!!
