The Glorious Wooing: How God’s Beauty Wins Human Hearts

Untitled design (6)

God is terribly selfish. He creates a vibrant, beating heart of a world, puts people on it, and says, “Love me.” God’s beauty is not only for our good, but for his. Revolutionary.

This is the last week of Beauty Rewrites. Say what? It’s been bold, tender, and absolutely beautiful. Ludavia Harvey, Emily Conrad, and I have opened our hearts to you. We’ve shared honestly about the flab of post-baby bodies, bravely baring our faces au natural to the world, and being a beauty queen is not all its cracked up to be. I’ve dug deep into my own story and learned from these bold women that God’s beauty is so far beyond anything I’ve ever imagined.

If you missed a post, catch up here.

Today Emily closes out the series with how God draws us straight to himself. Maybe its selfish, but I think its love. That’s always pretty crazy.

God’s Beauty is a Stunning Idea

God is in the business of winning us to his heart and turning our idea of beauty right on its head. Emily says,

If the stunningly beautiful and glorious God of the universe woos us to Himself not with the beauty of his appearance but instead with the beauty of who He is, his steadfast love, his mercy, his grace, isn’t it silly of us to try to attract the world with long eyelashes and skinny waists?

  • I love the title you gave this post! The glorious wooing. Who are we that God would go to all the trouble of drawing our hearts? And yet, he calls us by name, shows us who he is, and calls us his own. A beautiful love story. Thank you for everything you’ve done&shared leading up to and throughout this series. You’ve helped to change my mind for the better about what beauty really is.

    • Ditto! Hasn’t it been fun? Thank you for making this series so awesome!!
