This is awesome insight on how beauty can be restored amidst the tragedy of lust.
God gave my friend greater understanding and revelation about how lust can be dishonoring of something or someone that God made to represent His glory. When God makes people, He makes them beautiful. He makes all things glorious, therefore, there are a lot of beautiful people in this world.
Looking at someone or something that is beautiful is good. It is glorious. Honoring that beauty is glorious, because God loves beauty. God created beauty. God IS beauty. Dwelling on beauty and beautiful things is good. (Philippians 4:8)
Dwelling on beauty and beautiful things becomes lust when it is done in a way that is not honoring to God or not honoring to that person or to that thing. However, if someone is struggling with lust, God can redeem their sight and help them to turn a distorted thought or perspective into an honoring, worshipful perspective.
