Seek Beauty

I have a little book called God Calling.  It is written by Two Listeners and edited by AJ Russell.  It has short chapters or daily writings of two struggling women in England who pray together and share the message God has given them.  Soul food!  I want to share a chapter with you about creation and the world we live in from their writing of what God spoke to them.
 
Draw Beauty from every flower and Joy from the song of the birds, and the color of the flowers. I am with you.  When I wanted to express a beautiful thought, I made a lovely flower.  When I want to express to man what I am - what My Father is - I strive to make a very beautiful character.

Think of yourselves as My expression of attributes, as a lovely flower is my expression of thought, and you will strive in all, in Spirtiual beauty, in Thought--power, in Health, in clothing, to be as fit an expression for Me as you can.

Absorb Beauty.  As soon as the beauty of a flower or a tree is impressed upon your soul it leaves an image there which reflects through your actions.  Remember that no thought of sin and suffering, of the approaching scorn and Crucifixion, ever prevented My seeing the beauty of the flowers.

Look for beauty and joy in the world around.  Look at a flower until its beauty becomes part of your very soul.  It will be given back to the world again by you in the form of a smile or a loving word.

Lissten to a bird.  Take the song as a message from My Father.  Let it sink into your soul.  That too will be given back to the world in ways I have said.  Laugh more, laugh often.  Love more. I am with you.  I am your Lord.




Enjoy the beauties of Spring.  Let them sink into your soul and come out in your life, in your relationships and in what you create!  Yours truly,  M

  1. Wow! That is beautiful! And so true. If you are constantly reflecting on God's beauty, you reflect it back at others. I was just telling my son this morning, that if you keep God in front of your face, between you and the world, you will act and react as God wants you to, not as the world does.
    Thanks for this awesome post.

  2. I would like to share with you what happened to me the other morning on my way to work
    I stopped at the gas station to get gas. While I was pumping there was a young man in his early 20's there also pumping gas. I live in Michigan and our weather can change by the hr. I had set out with a light jacket on and it was pretty chilly. The young man smiled at me, so I mentioned that it was colder out then I thought when I left my house-
    His response was " yes it is but just listen to the birds chirping.
    That stopped me in my tracks- I had not heard the birds. My ears were off- what else was God saying that I could not hear?
    Talk about an attitude adjustment- God sure used this young man to tell me to listen to the good He has for us.
    Blessings, Alice
