To me I feel deprived, but I guess some deserve it more than others. You can have the best chin ever if you are a douchebag, you are not going to make a woman happy. And there are many variables involved. I mean Everyone and they were awed by the beauty so much they commented on it they desired these people, etc. My sister-in-law is also a beauty…jet black hair and blue eyes and her friend is a beautiful model.
I would suggest that you gave yourself your own marching orders when you said: Could not really fault her though since I was just as guilty, if not for her good look I probably would not have enjoyed her presence as much. While people like me have to live an envious life miserable with depression and hoping our faith in God stays intact for us to go to heaven. Looking at others with a jaundiced eye does nothing but drag us downward in our own spiritual life and outlook. Instead, focus on loving the people around you. Though your comments are sometimes a bit raw, there is an honesty to them that I appreciate. Yes, physical beauty does help, and physical ugliness does hurt, in our materialistic society.
We call that world the material world. I am grateful to you and the other women who have filled out the picture from a female perspective here in the comments. The time scale frightened her but I felt took the pressure off me, because we both had agreed on that time frame. Heal your relationship with your mother. And some people in our world seem to have that sort of life. If that's you, I'm sorry- I truly am. I try to reach out to others but rejected because of the way I look, so how can you say serve others? Do you consider yourself to be a slave of advertisers? I was playing around on Google doing some research for my blog.
You are completely faithless and rationalize bad behaviour so that you have to extend even less effort. Not people who are conventionally unattractive, I know that is rather subjective. But to God, the people who influenced you to do them bear just as much guilt, if not more. Maybe he has someone far better in mind. People judge by vanity and they in turn will face judgement for using their gifts the none godly way.
I have spent the entire comment discussing factual things, where your post deals with fact, but focuses more on spirituality. His love is so great that he gave his only son. Anyway, I applaud your honesty and am glad your wife has you supporting her and, most of all, believing her. We are so alike in lots of ways. My last bf was pretty ugly by most standards. Thank you for responding and I will go read your other articles too. Hi Trisha, Thanks for stopping by, and for your comment.
I will continue to work hard on working for the good of others and fulfilling my ministry for our beautiful Heavenly Father. As a man you possibly do not know that we women do look at other women and think how beautiful she is. Even in church I was ostracised. Men have a very wide variety of what we find attractive. I have known many really good looking people who are really nice.
On this, see also the article: About God sending people to hell. Or, to put it in a more Christian form, focus your life on loving God and loving your neighbor as Jesus taught, and in time God will give you the companionship and happiness you long for. You keep blaming people for having something you don't. Thank You, the part about all of us having the same advantage of meeting God one day is up-lifting… But I find that to be sort of false. Wide hips, feminine face, etc. Your suggestion to develop greater inner beauty and spiritual wholesomeness are the ideals any Christian has to strive toward.
Clearly your many struggles have caused you to think more deeply than that. Isn't it a coincidence how a bad personality coincides with bad looks? In the spiritual world, women and men who are kind, thoughtful, and generous in spirit will be beautiful in appearance, whereas women and men who are rude, arrogant, selfish, and disdainful will be ugly in appearance. Instead, He would judge us for all the sins He know we will commit. We call that world the spiritual world. In particular, please could you give Biblical justification for the following extracts of your answer? If you focus on doing your work well, for the benefit of those you are serving, and engaging in recreational or volunteer activities that you love and can put your heart into, it is likely that your own activities will lead you to a woman who shares your loves, values, and interests, and who will love you for the person you are, not for your physical appearance. When memory of the pain of rejection hits, all those sayings of building up inner strength and beauty just seem abstract. And this is 2014…did you know, and perhaps you do, that in Puritan Massachusetts pretty women were banned from going to church altogether? Just think about how much that hurts.
