Beauty Embraces

"Worship Me in the beauty of holiness. I created beauty to declare the existence of My holy Being."(221)
Beauty certainly has a way of catching one's eye! Beauty captures our attention and holds us in a kind of silent embrace. I love the thought of using that moment to acknowledge the great Creator of beauty.
Praising God for the many expressions of His Beauty around me today!
Embracing His Beauty....dmc


  1. I must admit that the times I most see God's presence in nature is when I am in Hawaii. There is something about the magnificence of the ocean that shows God's power, yet is calming; hard to describe. And, the sunrises and sunsets and the beautiful flowers. I teasingly tell people that is what the Garden of Eden was like before sin. But, I need to look for God in nature in OK also! After all, the whole earth is full of God's glory!

  2. Growing up on a small family farm, I saw beauty all around me every day. Changing seasons with the plants and animals coming to new life in the spring; the wonderful development of fruits, vegetables, hay and grains in the gardens and fields of the summer; the beautiful colors in the woods and the harvest of the fall; followed by winter with long nights for time to observe the beautiful night skies and a type of rest for the land and the farmer. I definitely responded to God’s creation as mentioned in today’s devotional. “This is a gift, and it carries responsibility with it. Declare my glorious Being to the world.” I never thought of it as a gift and/or responsibility before. I even wrote a college freshman (a long time ago) English paper on hymns and God’s beautiful world. Wow! What memories and challenges this concept brings to me! I have a lot to think about on this one.

  3. Speaking of creation...if only we would be as faithful to praise Him day and night without fail!

  4. Kay, I have visited all fifty states and lived in six of them. All of them have some special beauty. I love the beautiful sunsets (and sunrise when I see one!) that are so visible in the wide expanse of the open west.
