A few thoughts to contemplate.
If human spirits long for their eyes to always appreciate beauty – wherever it may be found….in nature….or felt by externals like gentle wind through our hair. If beauty in music, art, photography, writing, or kindness or even courage in sorrow and loss, evokes a rising up of LOVE. (not self-focussed but outward-looking), something happens internally. .
Then, if God is in our lives WORSHIP arises in its purest form. A wonderful transformation occurs in our thinking. A passionate desire to be pleasing and ‘born again’ into the image of the Creator starts to stir. None of this could progress further without acceptance of the ONE who sacrificed His Life for us.
Acceptance, following Jesus……… love, WORSHIP, Thanksgiving for all things. Dying to self-interest etc. All now on a wonderful journey.
This is the WAY. The Highway of Holiness.
Frail imperfect human beings we all are BUT……(we have)………A Saviour – A Journey. C.S Lewis in Mere Christianity expressed some of these thoughts but Paul in Philippians 4 v8 expressed it best:
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, holy, whatever things are just, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report. If there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy. Meditate on these things.
What your focus is on can determine your life journey. Focus on BEAUTY and LOVE first.
Peace and Blessings!
