Day 308

BEAUTY

One thing I ask of the Lord. . .

to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, My beauty is for you to enjoy. Everything I've created, I've made for you. Look around. There's beauty in the earth and skies, in every field and flower, in every creature that walks on earth. And My beauty is in you, Child. You don't see it? Maybe it's because you're looking in the wrong mirror again. You are beautiful to Me.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
When I think about the beauty of Your creation, who am I, Lord, that You consider me? Yet as magnificent as Your works are, there is no comparison to Your own beauty. My one desire is to be a God-seeker, not a people-pleaser, and that I could live in Your home and worship You forever. Lord, You are so beautiful.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Beauty is in the eyes of the believer.
