Internal Concentrates

No matter what I am wearing or how my hair looks, I always feel my best when my spirit is refreshed. When your spirit is renewed, you can skip the makeup and show off your true beauty.

While cleansers rid your spirit from the buildup of dirt, and moisturizers lock in hydration, concentrates are a new type of inner beauty treatment everyone should add to their list.

What is a concentrate?

According to the dictionary it is a substance made by removing water or other diluting agent; a concentrated form of something, especially food.

A quality concentrates like 2 Timothy 2:15 is meant to protect your spirit and strengthen it to help prevent against external stressors. It’s the perfect application to add into your internal beauty routine when you’re just starting to see those early signs of agitation and you want to build up your spirit’s immunity to protect against damaging effects of the worlds pollution.

How to apply 2 Timothy 2:15:

Studying to show ourselves approved unto God involves more than simply learning the facts. Meditation on the text is the next step in your regimen. Only as you meditate on Scripture whether it is a verse, several verses, or a passage – will you begin to see the principles which can be applied in your life.

Applying God’s Word is the best way to gain wisdom, and be healed from our broken hearts and bitter souls. It is not enough to know His Word, we need to take it to heart and see how every word can apply to you. There may be only one interpretation of His Word but many applications.

Try this one for starters. Simply apply James 1:22 to your life, and turn your hearing into doing. Applying God’s Word simply means doing what it says. Being who God says you are. Living the way God tells you to live. Walking the way Christ walked and yes it can be done through Him. Just DO IT! Just live it! Put on Christ and apply His Word daily.

One word of caution: don’t try to apply it to someone else because they will become an irritant to you.

tip 1

For example, if I read something in the Bible that would apply to my husband, and I see that he doesn’t apply it himself, then I get quite irritated that he is not doing the same inner beauty routine as I am. On the contrary, when we look at the flaws of others we fail to see our own. So let’s focus and concentrate on how the Word can apply to us only.

Amen? Amen!! Ok so what Word has been your concentrates lately?

    Thank you for those amazing words. I was reading from my Beth Moore this morning and these words from Entrusted stick with me today. But the Lord stood with me. So even when I am alone, he is still with me at all times. What comfort that brings.
