Beauty is not always within our sight. There is so much that clamors for our attention. Often our focus is given to the thing that is troubling us. It’s so easy to become distracted when we can’t see around the mountain that is looming in front of us.
On those days when I need to be reminded of His beauty, I go to His Word. When I pick it up and read it, there is beauty at every turn.
Among the pages of His Word are reminders of just how beautiful life is. Reminders of the beauty of creation, the beauty of forgiveness, the beauty of healing, restoration and love. His promises are beautiful and they speak life at every turn.Among the pages of His Word are reminders of just how beautiful life is. #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
