When the Beauty Fades, Look a Little Closer

By: Shari A. Miller

One the days when all the beauty of life seems dim, and the grime of worry covers over the eyes that see into the deep recesses of who you are.

Remember there's more out there than what meets the eye.

Call on the Father to help you with the trials and tribulations that have covered over your life.

Then it's time to be silent.

Listen for His voice, obey His leading, and watch the view start to change.

Then look once more.

Look past the thickness that clouds your soul and you'll see the beauty of your life that's slowly being transformed.

Past the haze of the pruning of winter, the flowers and blessings of Spring are just starting to bloom in your life.

Don't get caught in the trap of being stuck in worry that you miss these gifts.

Hang tight to the Father, and listen to his voice, as you lean into Him and press onward towards His call.

  1. Love this...we need to look deeper than the surface...deeper than circumstances! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Beautiful words, Shari. I just read another blog with a similar heart. We need to look beyond the "winter" of things and know that His blessings are every where, every day.
