I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
Aging allows us to witness the natural progression of our lives. We see the effects of physical change and admit it’s hard to notice. But God wants us to remember what's created on the inside is most valuable to Him. He helps us see ourselves as He sees us; beautiful and wonderfully made!
There’s no doubt time will change us. Physical appearances will not stay the same. But God will help us find beauty in what He’s created. He will help us embrace a heart of content, so we will see what He sees in us.
If we choose to welcome JOY, the light of Jesus will shine brightly. It will diminish our worries and help us see what is good! It will open our hearts to welcome peace and help us remember where to find it. It will remind us we are valued and loved.
God will help us see what needs to be noticed when we focus on Him and allow ourselves to grow in His greatness. We must WELCOME the gift of His presence and remember where strength is found. He will help us examine our hearts and notice who we're becoming because of His love for us. He loves our humbled hearts. And that is where beauty is found. ♥
Dear God, thank you for moments to see what You see in us. Help us find JOY in what You have created. We will love You with all of our hearts and trust in the timing of Your will. As our bodies age, fill us with peace to welcome the physical changes in our lives. We will embrace each day and never forget how lucky we are to be fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank you, Father! We are grateful to know we are valued and loved. Amen
