“Nature is God’s art”
Phillip James Bailey
“God’s works are so great, worth a lifetime of study-endless enjoyment! Splendor and beauty mark his craft; His generosity never gives out.”
(Psalm 111:2, 3 MSG)
You are one of God’s great works too. How easy it is to feel in awe of the Creator when we look at a sunset, or take in the gentle beauty of a flower in full bloom but cannot see the splendor and beauty God had given you when you look in the mirror. You are the crown of his creation and whether the world recognizes it or not, your Heavenly Father looks at you with delight and joy. He has marked you with beauty and splendor although most of the time we wear the marks of judgement and fear instead. The marks of past hurt instead of the God’s present outpouring of love, grace and affection. The good news is that if you haven’t taken advantage of this yet- God’s generosity never runs out. There is no limit. You can start taking advantage of it today.
I pray that your day is filled with wonder and awe as you look outward to behold the beauty of nature and as you look inward to behold the beauty of you.
