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!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Outstanding post Faye! Indeed, keep our eyes focused on Him is the best “filter” we can use to gaze upon all things. Through Him all of life is seen in grandeur! Hugs for helping me to see more clearly.
