I truly enjoy writing this one word devotional series. My hope is that these devotionals would be encouraging to moms.
With this series I’m journeying through the alphabet and we’re on the letter “B” and our word for the week is “Beauty.”
I love this definition from Merriam Webster:
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt with the heart,” Hellen Keller.
1 Peter 3:3-4, New International Version (NIV)
3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 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.
Reading this scripture in combination with Heller Keller’s definition of beauty helps me to understand that what God really wants is for our gentle and quiet spirit to touch his heart.
I want beauty that touches God’s heart.
“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting,” Ralph Waldo Emerson
This week I’m praying to have God’s beauty revealed to me. And I pray too that your week is blessed with abundant beauty.
In His Grip,
