A Beautiful Life

The beauty of a changed life can attract others to the One who makes us beautiful.

Rejoice Though Your Heart Be Broken

“I have told you these things, so that you might have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)

God never plows in the soul of man
Without intention and purpose
and plan…
So whenever you feel the
plow’s sharp blade
Let not your heart be sorely afraid,
For, like the farmer,
God chooses a field
From which He expects
an excellent yield…
So rejoice though your heart
be broken in two–
God seeks to bring forth
a rich harvest in you.

His Praise Shall Continually Be In My Mouth

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall be continually in my mouth. My soul will make its boast in the LORD; the humble will hear it and rejoice. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:1-3 (NASB)
What inexpressible joy for me, to look up through the apple-blossoms and the fluttering leaves, and to see God’s love there; to listen to the thrush that has built his nest among them, and to feel God’s love, who cares for the birds, in every note that swells his little throat; to look beyond to the bright blue depths of the sky, and to feel they are a canopy of blessing, –the roof of the house of my Father; that if the clouds pass over it, it is the unchangeable light they veil; that, even when the day itself passes, I shall see that the night itself only unveils new worlds of light; and to know that if I could unwrap fold after fold of God’s universe, I should only unfold more and more blessing, and see deeper and deeper into the love which is at the heart of all. – Elizabeth Charles
“LORD, our Lord, how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth! You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.” Psalm 8:1 (HCSB)
