Harpers Bizarre

I am a visual person, so vivid images catch my attention.  I happen to love some magazine covers.  So many elements go into making the cover stand out.  One magazine in particular that has spectacular covers is the Harper’s Bazaar.  The colors, fashion and celebrities on the cover are very appealing.  These attractive covers get you to pick up the magazine and eventually read them.

As I was perusing through the magazines something occurred to me…the message wasn’t clear!  There were articles entitled “Look Younger”, “Fabulous at Every Age”, and “Update Your Look”.  Well which one should I believe?  That I’m FAB at every age?  That I need to look younger?  Or that I just need to update my look?  Talk about BIZARRE!


I’m so glad the word of God doesn’t contradict itself.  The message is reliable and supports itself.  I LOVE magazines, but what a confused and insecure woman I’d be if I let the Harper’s Bazaar define me.  Who/What defines you?  Your marital status?  Clothes?  How “good” you are?  Material possessions?  Position?  Ministry? Your calling? or CHRIST?

(Philippians 3:7-10)  (Matthew 6:19-21)  (Luke 12:15)


The only thing more BIZARRE then the Harper’s Bazaar are those who give it the authority it wasn’t meant to have.

Urban Decay in green?  Yes!  Don’t you know that green compliments brown eyes and enhances them if they are any other color.  Never wore green eyeshadow before huh?  This may take you by surprise, but you have!

We all have one time or another.  It’s called envy, also known as “The Green Eyed Monster.”  Similar to jealousy but different in that when you envy not only do you want what the other person has but you carry feelings of ill will toward them.  It can make you do crazy things!  It made Jesus the target of the religious leaders and David the target of Saul.

Why is envy and jealousy known as “The Green Eyed Monster” anyway?  Well it was believed that when a person was filled with envy and covetousness, their body produced more green bile.  This would then change their complexion making them look sickly.  So when your envious you kind of look like this chic.

New Image

Proverbs 14:30 says – A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

When you are envious it truly is like decay in your inner man, and your countenance really does change.  So get a make over and remove that Urban Decay “green eyeshadow” and put on this really great “eyeshadow” called contentment.


You can find contentment in the godliness aisle. (1st Timothy 6:6)

My favorite beauty supply stores are Sephora and Ulta Beauty.  They have quality make up and great prices!  I specifically have a hard time finding the perfect lip gloss.  Some are too sticky and others wear off quickly.  I took a trip to Sephora the other day and stumbled upon a lip gloss called “Lip Venom”.  It not only gave my lips a nice shine but it also made them more plump!  A win win right?!  Well that depends.

Have you ever met someone and they seem beautiful at first until they start to speak?  The content of their words is more like poison then fresh springs.  Perhaps they need to wipe off that “Lip Venom”…Oh but if only it were that simple!

You see out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. We (Christians) are called to use even our very mouths as agents of healing and loving correction.  Not to gossip and put others down.  What makes a woman beautiful is not her make up, its the quality of her heart.


You want to attain true beauty?  Take a break from Sephora and Ulta Beauty and take a detour to this awesome place called “The feet of Jesus.”

I once bought this pair of Gucci pumps, they were FAB.  Everywhere I went heads turned and eyes stared.  One day as I was going on a night on the town, I noticed a small tear in the sole.  It wasn’t very noticeable so I paid it no mind.  As time went by it just became worse and people began to notice.  The threading un-threaded, the heel broke off and eventually I could no longer wear them in public.  One very important part of the story which I failed to mention…I bought them at a black market.

Sound familiar? No?  Okay, here goes!

Living for God, I mean REALLY living for God costs you something.  You can take short cuts and fool the world for a short time but in the end will your  “Gucci Pumps” prove to be the real deal?  Or will people see them for what they really are?  Knock offs.

PS,It’s not too late to invest in the real thing.
