The Power of Beauty

Because the presence of the Lord is everywhere on the face of the earth, there is no place, no matter how dark and dismal, no matter how  hopeless, no matter how much terror and oppression exists, noone is left without some glimpse of beauty somewhere.  No matter how small and insignificant it may seem, make no mistake about it, it's presence is intentional and  powerful!  It's God's grace to us all--reaching out in the midst of the darkness, reminding us that He is near.  It's our glimmer of hope.  His love will not abandon.  Somehow his beauty will penetrate the most hopeless situation and if we choose to focus on it, an inexhaustible flood of joy will overtake us.  The simple act of thanking God focuses our thoughts on His beauty and amazingly brings peace and joy to our hearts even when the circumstances around us seem hopeless.

Take time today, and look for the beauty that God has placed in your life, and thank Him.  It is His gift to you.
