Do not let your adorning be external - the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear - but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. (1 Peter 3:3-4)

"To have a gentle and quiet spirit is to have a heart of faith, a heart that trusts in God, a spirit that has been quieted by his love and filled with his peace. Not a heart that is striving and restless." -"Captivating" by John & Stasi Eldredge

Dear Heavenly Father, create in me a gentle and quiet spirit. May my external adornment pale in comparison to my inner person. May my beauty come from you. Show me my beauty. Quiet me with your love. In your precious name, Amen.
