It’s hard to see the beauty in our lives sometimes.
And even harder yet to see the beauty that resides inside each one of us.
As Mother’s Day approaches, I’ve been reflecting on my own heart as a mom.
All I can see are my shortcomings and failures, words too quickly spoken, the grace I did not offer.
I want so much to always offer hope, encouragement, grace and patience to my children.
Yet I fall short. Often. Daily. Every moment.
Life becomes mundane, mediocre and my focus becomes fixed on the less-then-perfect, the ugly.
In the dust of motherhood and all that it entails,
will you believe with me that there is beauty?
When chaos and distraction surround you,
will you believe with me that there are moments of beauty?
When ugly and imperfection stare you in the face,
will you believe with me that you and all that you are speak of beauty?
He makes beautiful things, He makes beautiful things out of the dust. He makes beautiful things out of us.
Let’s purpose together to walk this journey in pursuit of beauty. We may not always see it, but He promises that if we seek it out, we will find it.
All around, hope is springing up from this old ground. Out of chaos life is being found in You.
