This week’s Powerful Beauty comes from a women with incredible fortitude and heart. Shirley Cheng is 26 years old, is blind and physically disabled. She’s also an award-winning author (with over twenty-one awards to her credit!), poet, and motivational speaker. Shirley is proof that no matter what life you, you have the ability to make the most of it.
“Jehovah God Almighty created the first woman, Eve, in His spiritual image. In order to achieve powerful beauty, it is essential to maintain that godly image. God is love, so when women abide in His image, they become love in turn. When women put on love, they have dressed themselves in the most beautiful gown. Wearing love is bedecking yourself with imperishable gold and diamond whose sparkle will never fade away. Love is the secret ingredient that makes all women young-looking, vibrant, and sexy, regardless of their age, shape, height, or background. It does not cost your pocket, nor does it take much brain power. Love is the magical makeup that not only covers up your blemishes but eliminates them from your life.
Even though I’m disabled with disfiguring juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since infancy and blind since age seventeen, I feel beautiful because I constantly let Jehovah’s Holy Spirit help conform me to His image of love. To be perfectly beautiful is my goal, and with God’s provisions, I know I will someday achieve such powerful beauty.”
Shirley mentioned above that she hopes to someday “achieve such powerful beauty”… in my mind, she’s already there. She has accomplished more and in a shorter time span that many people do in their entire lives! And she’s only 26! Imagine what lays ahead for this incredible young woman!
