I love travelling.
There is something so relaxing yet thrilling about being on a plane, leaving one country and anticipating your arrival in another. For some, it’s a chance to escape, for others, a chance to encounter, but for everyone, travelling provides a chance to experience.
This was a picture I took whilst in the sky a few days ago. I was struck by the beauty and the detail, and that something as simple as snow could look so alluring up close.
It made me to think about life and how we often ask God to beautify things within our lives.
But what if our lives are already beautiful? What if God is already looking at us and smiling, because He sees the beauty from above that we often miss from below?
If we trust God, and believe that every word written in the Bible is true, let’s trust that God is more than able, and is completely capable of beautifying us, and making us reflect the image of His Son.
Situations may get ugly in the moment, and beasts of fear, anxiety and depression may rear their ugly heads, but believe that your life is, and will continue to become beautiful. God has a way of looking at us in a way that we do not look at ourselves. I pray that we will be able to rise to a new level of vision, a greater level of perspective – God’s perspective.
PS – A scripture, for all of us who often forget…
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

This is something I have been pondering too, that God has something more for my life.
Thanks for sharing this.
You’re so welcome. Glad you found it useful! God has so much in store for all His children, and His Word promises us amazing things if we are willing to wait on Him.
I love how the prophet Isaiah says it in Isaiah 64v4:
“For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.”
So simple, so profound…
That is a great scripture Stephanie!
I agree about the waiting. His plan for our lives takes time to develop and we need to be all in when it comes to waiting (in whatever it comes)
