The Beauty of the Lord

Why does every mother believe she’s given birth to the most beautiful child the world has ever seen? Because the more you love someone, the more beautiful they become in your eyes. The same is true with God.

Loving a God you cannot see can be tricky at times. That’s because it’s unlike any other relationship you’ll ever have. You can’t experience God with your five senses, like you do everyone else. But you can experience the effects of His love.

As you become more familiar with God by reading the Bible and spending time in prayer, you become more aware of God’s hand at work in your life. You notice peace beginning to replace fear and worry. You find joy, even in difficult circumstances. You feel valued, even when you fail. You find forgiveness erasing your guilt and shame. You discover firsthand the true beauty of the Lord.

Draw closer to God. Celebrate the fact that He’s near. Take time to bask in the beauty of loving and being loved.

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Jeremiah 31:3
