Natural Sparkle Part 1 - Introduction

Jessica Louise –

Hello! Welcome to the brand new three part series which will be available or the next three weeks (one blog a week). The blogs will be all about you! And how we as girls need to be comfortable in our own skin and bodies. We need to take care of them and love them!
I have spoken about this a lot of blogs recently… about loving ourselves because God created us and loves us.
You need to be comfortable in your own skin, not the skin others try to give you. What I mean is BE YOURSELF! No one else but yourself. Don’t take bad habits from people, stay positive and comfortable in your own skin.

The Real You - Ask yourself are you comfortable in your own skin? Are you being the real you? Or are you putting on a brave face or hiding a secret life of sin?

Be true to yourself and God. Because at the end of the day he’s the one who will always be there for you, if you sin, repent, if you cry, take comfort in the lord, if you are joyful, thank the lord!

It’s as simple as that.

Honestly, when I am feeling down, and things aren’t going my way, I have to think ‘no they might not be going my way, but there going Gods way’.

You’re a natural beauty – You are naturally beautiful, God didn’t create you and want you to cover you skin and complexion with layers of makeup! He created you to shine your natural beauty.

When I feel down I hate putting makeup on! I hate trying to look better and improve myself, I’d rather wear no makeup and lose the skinny jeans and trade them in for comfy pants!
 I asked myself the other day why do I feel like I NEED to apply loads of makeup? The only answer I could come up with is ‘society’ and what everyone would think if I left the house with no makeup on, and how they would judge me. The truth in fact is that I decided to leave the house for the day with no makeup on, jeans and baggy shirt and wavy hair… The truth is no one even noticed or batted an eyelid.

The problem with feeling like I needed to apply makeup to leave the house was created by myself. No one cares if I have no makeup apart from me, no one cares if I wear baggy tops, apart from me, and no one cares if I have wavy hair, apart from me. See a pattern?

So girl, get those makeup wipes and show the world your natural sparkle. I’m not suggesting you bin all your makeup because were girls! We need some makeup now and again and glitter and pink lips. But just tone it down and don’t put a full face of makeup on for sunbathing or a dog walk round the corner and back.

Be real. Be free. Be natural. And reveal your sparkle.

Thank you.

I would like to now introduce you to the NEW monthly guest blogger!
Brittany Nicole - 

Who may I just say is super inspirational and I think you guys will love her!
I asked her to guest blog for this series therefore please keep an eye out in a weeks’ time for Part 2 with Brittany Nicole. Here’s a little message from her…

“I'm 19, from Georgia (USA). I'm a strong Christian but my relationship with God has had its ups and downs these last few years.

I love writing, and I'm currently writing a book and hope to be a Christian author. So I decided to start a blog so I could continue to write and also hopefully help others in need. I've struggled with anxiety, body issues and depression, so a lot of my posts on my blog are about that. But I relate them all back to my Christian faith.

I am a sophomore in college, majoring in education, and am planning on becoming a deaf education teacher. I have a YouTube channel for my sign language videos as well! (

I guess the main thing to know about me is that I love God with all my heart and I personally know that having a relationship with Jesus isn't always the easiest. So I try to get that point through with my posts because I don't want people to think it's an easy path, but it's definitely a path that is worth taking! I hope this helps to give you a little idea about me. 

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask! My personal Instagram username is brittanyznicole, if you want to find me on there to see who I am on a more personal level.”

Guys I can’t wait to share her first guest post on The Bible for Women Site! It’s super exciting to be partnering with this young lady! I think she’s pretty awesome!

If you want any more information etc

God Bless Love

Be Brave

This topic has been popping up here and there and everywhere recently.
To be Brave. Use bravery every day. It is a trait and not a skill.
First it popped up at my church then at Cherish Conference multiple times and in the music charts- Brave my Sara Bareilles and Brave album by Christian singer Moriah Peters and Bethel Worship Music “You Make Me Brave” I FINALLY realised God had planted a message for me.
Get up! Out of your comfort zone, and Be Brave!

Being brave isn't easy sometimes as we are only human remember and we can't do things in our own strength but with God it's a totally different scenario.

Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Sometimes we need take a leap of faith, when I went to do a tree high ropes course, I prayed so much before taking a leap of the platform, but I knew God was with me because I could not of done that alone I could not of jumped out of tree without knowing God had my back.
The Holy Spirit is our guide he guides us and helps us out. He's like our best friend who's always there for you know matter what silly stuff you may do or say.

When I jumped off the platform I was so scared “EEEEEEEPPPPP” Let’s just say there was a lot of screaming nevertheless it was a relieved scream because I did it. I did it! And the view was spectacular, the trees made a blanket underneath me. A bright green blanket laid beneath me as I flew over with speed.

This is this same in real life problems, we can be scared to jump into something, so we pray to God for his support, and with the strength he gives us we take it gratefully and jump! He's always there to catch us.
When on the tree course think of it this way, our cables and the wire we are connected too are our prayers and connection to the Lord and the Harness is God himself.

 Our prayers and God himself are connected to each other, it doesn't really work if you want God and don’t pray, how can you have a relationship with someone you don’t talk too and communicate with? The thing to remember is when you pray you are connected to a love that never fails! He will always catch you, he will pick you up when you fail. So don’t be scared, BE BRAVE!
We are always connected to his wire, and if we keep connected we can experience amazing things. We need to trust in The Lord and his harness and jump, jump and enjoy the view!

Through Christ we can be brave. Because we know he's always there, he's always been there and he's always going to be there.

Leave your house today and lift your head up!

Don’t be ashamed to follow Jesus.

Don’t be scared to be who God created you to be.

Stand out from the crowd.

Get out of your comfort zone.

And Be Brave because others will be brave too.

Bravery is contagious!

I hope you enjoyed this blog!

Eat Beauty 2

{Personal Beauty}
Do you believe you are beautiful?

Let’s get straight to the point! Everyone reading this right now, most of you will say no. But the truth is you are beautiful through the eyes of the Lord.
He created all things bright and beautiful. You are bright and beautiful! Fact!

Genesis 1:27- So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

Psalm 45:11- So will the King desire your beauty; because He is your Lord, be submissive and reverence and honor Him.

Ecclesiastes 3:11- He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Proverbs 31:30- Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!

Do NOT be Vain!
Galatians 5:26- Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

This is super hard today, it’s difficult in today’s society to not think of what others are going to think of you, yes I love to get all dressed up and look all girly and pretty but that’s just me. But at the end of the day are others going to judge you at the end on your appearance? No!

When you leave this life people aren’t going to remember you perfect eye liner, your super skinny leather pants, you bright pink lips. There’s going to remember you by you and your personality, the things you did in your life, not the way you looked.

People will say ‘She was an amazing lady who loved God’.
People will NOT say ‘She was skinny, and tall and looked great in hot pants’
You are more bothered about your vanity than other people.
God is the only being to judge you, stop thinking about what others are going to think of you.  

You are either being judged or you are doing the judging! Think about that next time you’re walking down the street and you think to yourself an insult about a girl walking past you with a bright green hat. Don’t judge them on their fashion choices. Because fashion does not make you beautiful.

You are beautiful in your own skin. 

Your flesh and bones make you beautiful. Your wonderful structure is a masterpiece created by the Lord. Don’t change yourself. Love yourself the way you are.

 Love yourself as God loved you so much he made the blueprints for you.

Please girls! Be nice to each other, don’t judge each other because at the end of the day were all in this together and don’t have to like each other but we do have to LOVE each other.

Love each other and pay each other compliments.
You are beautiful girls! Sooo beautiful inside and out. Don’t forget your true beauty in your day to day life. Your true beauty is having the Holy Spirit inside you.

I hope you enjoyed this blog!
