God makes us beautiful…..

2 Corinthians 4

For God who said let light shine out of darkness, made His light shine in our hearts…..

This verse was shared with me by a friend who sincerely noticed the love of Jesus in my heart.  I’m humbled by these words because it could only be Jesus in this frazzled, tired, confused woman who would SHINE! Maybe that’s the point–in our weakness HE is strong.

I met a beautiful friend today for a working lunch before a late meeting at work.  She brought me a card.  I started crying.  I had just received the SAME card from someone else very special in my life the day before.  Of all the cards on a shelf, two different folks picked the same one.

Do you think God is trying to tell me something?  I challenged my Woman of Worth Mentoring Group to pray for something specific and see God show up this week.  He answered my prayers in this small but significant detail.  He knew.

“The way your life reflects the One who created you can be described with a single word that says it all–beautiful.”

It is my greatest prayer that Jesus’ love is shining bright no matter how I feel….and let me tell you I can FEEL! And sometimes when I FEEL, I don’t feel so pretty.

So God reminded me that my beauty is not in my works or my pursuit for perfection but in HIM–completely and solely in HIM.  His love covers a multitude of sin–GRACE received and GRACE extended.

Thank you my beautiful friends–I see HIM in you!
