Beautiful. Beautiful. Jesus is Beautiful.
And Jesus makes beautiful things of my life.
Carefully touching me. Causing my eyes to see.
And Jesus makes beautiful things of my life.

I have had this short little chorus stuck in my head all week. I don't know where I learned it or who sings it. It's one of those that I just grew up with. I challenge you to get a song like this stuck in your head for a few days! Something to keep you reminded at all times how beautiful Jesus is and how He is making your life into something beautiful for Him.

I know sometimes it is easy for me to go through life completely blind to how beautiful Jesus really is, and yet sometimes there is no way that I can escape it. I know that none of that has to do with Jesus, as He never changes, but with me and where my heart is at.

The world around us proclaims every moment of every day how beautiful our Lord is. The other night I woke to the windows in my house rattling as a huge thunder storm came through. The lightning was so bright that it made me flinch even with my eyes closed. Laying there and listening that night got me to thinking once again. God's beauty overwhelms every piece of His creation. Whether it's the thunder storm, the flowers blooming brightly, the ocean crashing, the stars shining, the crickets chirping or the wind blowing, let us never forget to see in all these things the beautiful Jesus who we serve who created all these things and is Himself more beautiful than we can imagine. I have some built in reminders that are to me, the most beautiful of His creations!

Hi Grace, that little song was written by Ernie Rettino (aka Psalty the Singing Songbook). It's on Kids Praise 4. I loved their music when I was a kid! Thanks for the encouraging thoughts.
