The Beautiful

If you are struggling, if your body continues to scream lies to you daily. It’s time to shift focus. I believe that the God of the universe who Continues to give us every good thing. He is also the God of the beautiful. I am not talking about supermodels or classic paintings. I’m talking about the song of a bird, the bloom of a rose and the perfect melody of a child’s belly laugh. Look for the beautiful! Worship the one who made sunsets and the rhythm of the waves as the crash on the shoreline. Sometimes when life gets heavy a return to the beauty begins the connection that produces the breakthrough.

When I was sick, the daily practice of observing and celebrating even minute details was vital. Honestly, the choice to be grateful, to see God in every circumstance was the thread that kept me connected to the path leading me to wholeness. A mate who wants a connection with their partner must first acknowledge the beauty. Then the intimacy comes. Stay in the acknowledgment.

When we grab hold of a revelation of Grace, the understanding that God has already purchased all we need. The bridge between knowledge and the manifestation can sometimes seem long. It can be a journey of renewing our soul man and letting our fully renewed spirit take the head. I am talking about the times in our journey when the enemy will attack with doubts, questions, loneliness, and despair. Return to the beauty painted all around you. It will begin to play a symphony of Love to your heart. You will receive all God has for you. The light of Jesus has overcome the darkness. Now we can fully receive the beautiful!

Job 12:7-10
“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;  or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.  Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?  In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind."

Psalm 33:5
The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

Psalm 89:1-2
I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
with my mouth, I will make your faithfulness known
 through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
 that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

Dear Niki, thank you for this. It brought a settledness to my heart. Thank you for sharing and sharing how you experience Jesus. So so so inspirational. Through listening to your teachings it has taught me & encouraged me in my relationship with God, that that relationship can go so much deeper. I'm still learning.
