Beautiful

Life is absolutely beautiful if you let it be. It is a matter of your perception on the world you have drawn to you. We must take full responsibility for where we are in our lives because in some way we are where we are based off of our habits past or present. The good thing about it is that we can change it by changing our focus. My life changed and is changing because my focus has changed. I am not focused on myself or others I am focused on God. My direction and guide. He keeps and protects me and has already done everything that is to be done in my life. It is up to me to listen and to follow. Prayer is more than just dumping all of your thoughts on God it is stopping to take the time to listen. Even if you don’t stop, having an open heart to hear the Holy Spirit and it’s still small voice that constantly speaks to us all day long is what praying without ceasing looks like. If we really understood the power we have from the Holy Spirit within us we would be so much better of as a whole. The Holy Spirit within us and having the fear of God within our hearts gives us the ability to do the seemingly impossible. I am still learning about the fear of God and how powerful it is but I have recognized it. Instead of me focusing on not fearing what may bring me fear (focuses evidently aren’t right), I need to focus on God and fearing Him instead. The Truth, the real truth, lies within all of us through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit which is, was, and is to come. The Holy Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, healed the blind, lame, and deaf, and so much more. The same Holy Spirit that nudges you and wakes you up in the morning. The same Holy Spirit that gives you the motivation and will power to take your next breath, to take your next step, to blink, to make your next move. That’s love, that’s beautiful. Willpower is what is giving you the motivation to even read this. Beauty is so much more than what the eye can see, so much more than your ears can hear, so much more the hands can feel, so much more than we can ever imagine. We are all beautiful because we have access to the Holy Spirit that Jesus left for us when He returned to the throne. We are all beautiful because we were ALL made in God’s image whether we believe in Him or not. That is something that will not ever change. Beauty is all around us if we will open our heart to see it. Our heart sees more than the eye can ever see. Our heart posses our vision. Our heart possess those answer we feel are unanswerable. Our heart possess our true selves. Not the person we pretend to be to others. Not the masks or facades we put on, on social media websites, in church, and other public settings. This is what God looks at when He looks at us. The heart that was saved and cleansed when Jesus was beaten, bleed, died, and rose for us. You are beautiful, you are free, you are saved, you are worthy, you are loved, and you are chosen. Be you, beautiful.
