The beauty of the Lord

Posted on: July 16, 2007

A friend recently shared a quote from C.T. Studd, a cricketer who turned missionary in the late 1800s. He wrote to tell his mother about the girl he would soon marry:

I suppose you want to know about her. Well, to tell you the truth, I can’t tell you much except about her spiritual life and her life before the world; I don’t even know her age . . . As regards her face, well, she has the beauty of the Lord her God upon her, which is worth more than all the beauty of the whole world.

Such a recommendation is truly precious.

The rest of his letter was also good.That is the kind of beauty us guys should look for in a woman.

Your post reminds me of the blessing I have received from God through my own wife, Danielle. I see His beauty shining forth from her, a beauty beyond compare, and it only grows daily as she grows closer to Him.

10 A capable, intelligent, and [a] virtuous woman–who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely, so that he has no lack of [honest] gain or need of [dishonest] spoil.
Proverbs 31:10-11 (Amplified Bible)

Thanks, Danielle.

What a precious testimony to your wife’s faithfulness, your own love for her, and Christ’s love shining through both of you. Thank you for sharing, friend!

Thank you! I, having just recently discovered your blog, have really been blessed by what I’ve read. I look forward to visiting often.
