Beauty Calls Out

Beauty

calls out

for us to believe

we are loved and protected

by the Unseen

Beauty

calls out

and points to the One

Who created everything

alongside His Son.

Beauty in creation is evidence of a Divine Artist and Creator.

So many types of shells, flowers, and even rocks reveal an imagination and artistry that didn’t stop until He’d said, “It is good.”

When God made us in His image He also said, “It is good.”

But there was one not so little detail He included in our nature. He gave us freewill. And when Adam and Eve were tempted to disobey God, they did.

Banished from the Garden of Eden and destined to die, they had to work long and hard to feed themselves. And the death of their innocence was passed down to the rest of us.

We are all born spiritually dead.

Beauty calls out to us.

It reminds us of a time before and a time to come. Perfection will once again be the place we call Home when we’ve believed and trusted in the One who paid the penalty for our sin.

Heaven is our good home.

And by the grace of God I’m walking the road that leads me to its shore.

Jesus makes us spiritually alive.

Today’s poem was inspired by some lovely words Diane Taylor   wrote in the comment section of my previous post.

She has written a book about memoir writing, and I’ve been reading it on my tea breaks while I’m out in my garden. Slowly I’ve been writing notes about my own life journey I’ll be sharing one day.

Like Adam and Eve’s story, it has some not so pretty parts in it.

But God makes everything beautiful in its time.

Today’s pictures are from a private beach I was invited to visit earlier this summer.

What’s your favorite beautiful place to visit?
