He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

Proverbs 31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

Sound familiar?
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”
“Beauty is only skin deep”

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Song: Handel’s “ Messiah”

Last night when I was looking for devotional music, I came across Handel’s “Messiah”. The first thing that come to mind was ‘How beautiful!’… Thus, the topic for today.

In considering these things, it draws praise to the Lord for His creations and the senses He gave to appreciate them! How often do we take time to thank God for our sight, hearing, taste, sense of smell and touch?

The Lord brought a few simple questions to my heart and mind. I considered them and ask you to do the same.

What do YOU find beautiful and why?

For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He has no stately form nor splendor; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
Isaiah 53:2

Prayer
Our Savior and our God
Thank You today for everything beautiful
You put before us
Your Word
A song
The ocean
Chocolate
The grasp of a baby’s little hand in ours
The delicious aroma of freshly baked bread
Thank You, Lord for the enjoyment of Your creation

Please let us not take for granted one touch, smell, sight, taste or sound
You’ve given us

We lift up praise to You

In the Name of Jesus Christ, the Most High
AMEN

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
