God, make me beautiful

God,

make me beautiful as Eden,

as the 7-day creation,

before Adam and Eve disobeyed,

and sin entered the world.

 

God,

make me beautiful,

as the love marks on your palms,

the crown of thorns on your head,

and the empty grave which you once lay.

 

God,

make me beautiful as heaven,

like the holiness of the saints,

like the new heaven and new earth.

 

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”- 1 Peter 3:3-4

He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.” – Col 1:15-21

Jesus is God and Lord over all creation!

Like a Rose, trampled on the ground

From the song “Above All” by Michael W. Smith:

“Like a rose

trampled on the ground

You took the fall

and thought of me

Above all.”

Parallels between a trampled rose and Jesus’ death on the cross.

“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” – Psalm 119:103

Finding our delight in God, how does one do that? Let’s take the time to meditate on His word daily, and delight ourselves in Him.

How often it is when one is going through a hard time, one desires that familiar sense of warmth and security. We wish for the easy way out, we want to go home, we want to stay in our comfort zone. Let God be our guide. So many things in this world distract us from Jesus.

Jesus asks us to pause, and just look to Him.

Jesus the Great Shepherd

How his plans can extend far beyond any kind of imagination or wishful thinking. How he loves us. and the new heavens and the new earth that await those that choose to follow Him.

Jesus is the Great Shepherd of the sheep, are we willing to follow Him into eternity?
