God has made all of us wonderful and beautiful. He gave to us His image and the wonder of life. To all of us He gave a unique beauty. A part of every part of what and who we are is made in His image. He gave us the beauty of Himself. We are drawn to our Father God and startled by the love of God that is experienced through Jesus His Son. God’s lovely and beautiful Self, His Holy Spirit, is alive within us. Within us yes, but more so, part of us. He awakens the beauty of His design. He brings all that He is for all that we are. He will not withhold His love for us. Because He lives, we are not afraid and have a future of eternal hope and joy. God’s Holy Spirit is beauty and He awakens the beauty He put in us. The beauty God made us to be is the inheritance of all His children. His children that are born to Him by giving all to Jesus who is Savior and Lord. All that we ever were and all that we ever hoped to be is now dead to our designs, given to God, and brought to a life, more beautiful. A life that now helps others receive the same. Love completed and working, God’s love, beauty indeed!
Psalm 139:14 – I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
Psalm 57:10 – For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Ephesians 2:4-10 – 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
