A different kind of beauty

A different kind of beauty

 

We are blessed in California with all kinds of beauty. From the mountains to the deserts and on to the beaches…it’s pretty special.

Being in Arizona recently reminded of another kind of beauty. The red dirt and green trees make for some stunning views.

All of this, wherever we’re at, is part of what our creative God is all about. He made these amazing places…and then made us. All creation is special, but we were made specifically to have a relationship with Him. A stunning view might take your breath away, but how about that truth!!??? He made you to have a relationship with Him. Wow!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. (Ephesians 1:3-10 NIV)
