Beauty

“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

I woke up this morning to my alarm singing, “Good morning, it’s a beautiful day.”  Then, I found myself wondering what the weather would be like.   Another rainy and dreary day… that wouldn’t be “beautiful.”  It was at that point that God reminded me a simple truth that’s also written in Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He hath made everything beautiful in his time.”

Whether we find ourselves fretting over the clouds that darken the sunny day we anticipated or worrying about the storm clouds that darken situations in our lives, we should find comfort in knowing that God hath made every thing beautiful in His time.  God’s ability to create the beauty contained in the Earth is mind-boggling.  Beauty springs forth everywhere we look.  His creativity is breath-taking, and His work is amazing. Knowing that God’s beauty dwells among us in every part of His creation should inspire us to find wonder and awe in each day.

Not only is God’s beauty perfected in the natural world, it is also perfected in us.  We are part of His handiwork.  He had a design for each of us when he created us and also has a design for our lives today.  Today I challenge you to find the true beauty of God in your everyday surroundings.  Appreciate God’s masterpiece.  In turn, He will strengthen and deepen His beauty within you.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1
