During the month of October, I am participating in the #write31day challenge via microblogging. That means I am not sharing daily here, but rather I am sharing images with quotes and inspiration via my Instagram account. My topic is 31 Peeks into the Beauty of God. I will be using the #fiveminutefriday prompts to assist me in my efforts. To follow along, you can find me on Instagram at @barbieswihart. All of the posts in this series will be shared there.
Each Monday in October, I will post here for the link up using the corresponding word prompt. Today’s prompt is TELL.
The beauty of God is hard to explain. There are so many facets to it. I use to just think about the obvious ones – the heavens, moon, stars, sunshine, babies, flowers, weddings, mountains, etc. But I’ve learned over the last few years that there is beauty in every part of our lives, if we are looking for it.
The Bible tells us to tell others about the works of Jesus in our lives.
Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you. And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him. (Luke 8:39 ESV)
When I tell others about the beauty of God, I will share of how after my husband lost His job, we had to sell our home and stand in food lines, but how God provided a spacious home to rent and has always provided four our every need.
When I tell others about the beauty of God, I will share of how our marriage was tested through years of unemployment and lack, but how God strengthened our commitment and deepened our love for one another.
When I tell others about the beauty of God, I will share about my less-than-perfect home which is filled with children and grandchildren, and cluttered with keepsakes and memories that will last through the generations.
When I tell others about the beauty of God, I will share about how I struggle physically but through it God has shown me His strength in time of weakness.
