It’s a happy and beautiful new year to everyone from Beautiful Life Articles. Wow, three months already gone in the year 2017 and we are forever indebted to God with our gratitude because we are alive by His grace and mercy.
At the start of the year, I struggled so much because I wanted to write and share with you all but I was greatly restricted. My hands itched and itched, I just wanted to share new lessons, new stories, new findings, new recipes and new things in general but what is Beautiful Life Articles without God? NOTHING!!
Saturday was another beautiful day and I had started writing only to be stopped along the way. Well I didn’t get back to write and later that day, I sat with Bambie and we watched an episode of the program “LITTLE BIG SHOTS” anchored by Steve Harvey. There was this 7 year old who came on the show. He was blind and he is a singer. While they discussed before his performance, one of the things he said was, “Mr Steve Harvey, I love you.” As Mr Steve reached out to hug him, he embraced Mr Steve so warmly that I didn’t know when the tears flowed through as I watched. Then fast forward to where he was singing. Oh the beautiful voice and I was touched by the beauty that came through from this amazing 7 year old.
As I sat there and kept rewinding, this was impressed in my heart. How many of us are perfect physically and have everything that we want going well for us but lack the true beauty? So many of us say we love the Lord yet, we cannot even show at least 10% of his beauty. I was lead to ask the Lord to forgive me where I had taken things for granted and I asked that He helps me live in and show his beauty to everyone around.
The Rose is termed the most beautiful flower in the world and I am forced to agree because many a times the rose is what is being given out to loved ones. Nobody gives out a bunch of weeds to anyone. As you read this, I want to ask you and I two soul searching questions:
- Are we a rose which can be given out to others and our presence puts a smile on their faces?
- Are we a weed that cannot be given out but instead gathered up and burned or thrashed?
The good news is that here we share all you need to know to become a rose. Join us and invite others to join in on this beautiful journey to discovering and living in the absolute beauty of Christ. At Creation, we were all made beautiful (in the image of God), the fall of man put a dent on this beauty but the presence of Jesus removes the dent and makes us BEAUTIFUL. Just as we were originally designed.
Welcome on board and let the beauty of Christ be seen in you all.
God bless you and Much Love from Mrs O’.
