29 In Glimpses

Read His Word And Find Beauty At Every Turn // Glimpses Link Up

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

The Beauty of Creation

The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands. (Psalm 19:1)

The Beauty of Forgiveness and Love

You are forgiving and good o Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. (Psalm 86:5)

The Beauty of Healing

I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

And one that I need all the time, reminders that I am beautiful!

You are altogether beautiful my darling, there is no flaw in you. (Song of Solomon 4:7)

What scripture do you go to when you need to be reminded of God’s beauty in your life?

This is Day 16 of 31 Peeks into the Beauty of God. I am sharing there mostly on Instagram, except for Mondays for the link up. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, you can find me at @barbieswihart. I would love to have you there!

And now I continue to list the beauty that I’m finding in my every day life.

    These are great verses to fill our minds with beauty. I also love Ephesians 2:10 and the fact that we are God’s masterpieces, individually created by him, and that, while we are works in progress, he is making us into something beautiful.

    Love these verses. I love the creation story because it reminds me of God’s creativity and the beauty of His creation. Ever since I read The Magician’s Nephew by CS Lewis, I picture God speaking each thing into creation, using different tones depending on what He creates.

    What a lovely read to start the morning, Barbie!!
    I appreciate the positiveness you include on your blog, as we do tend to focus on what the news throws at us, which seems to be so negative!!

    Thank you for sharing such lovely Scriptures and images reminding us to look for HIS beauty. I find myself going back to Isaiah 55 time after time, and hearing Him speak His words of comfort that His ways are so much higher than my own. And, congrats on making it past the half-way point for your 31Days challenge!

    I’m studying Romans 8 right now, and there is so much beauty in that very first verse: No condemnation!

    One of my favorites is Psalm 27:4: One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.
