A sister-friend was saying to me today that until one experiences JESUS for themselves they just don’t know. We try to describe experiencing Him but they just don’t know.
And then as I sat to think what can I share with you, I picked up my copy of Just Between God & Me (by Sandra Drescher) and November 12 reads like this:
Take A Closer Look
One day in a science class, we looked at flowers under a microscope. The beauty of each intricate part of what had previously been an ordinary looking flower was impossible to describe. Each person had to look himself to experience the joy. Since then I have recognized more beauty in each flower I see, because I know more of what’s there.
Jesus, in His glory, is that way too. Each person must take the time to discover for himself Jesus’ true beauty. No words can do justice to the real picture of what life with Him is like. Once His glory has been seen, the only regret is that it wasn’t known before.
The Word became flesh and lived for a while among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 NIV).
Thank You, Jesus, for making Yourself available for everyone to see. Grant that I will help encourage others to discover Your true beauty also. Amen.
Amen and amen!
Psalm 27:(New American Standard Bible) 4One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.
Holy hugs and have a wonderful weekend, kt
November 12, 1961 was a special day — the birth date of Helen Louise Cason who became Helen Louise Cason Smith on October 19, 1984. I miss her. Forty-Eight was a short time to be here but she now has eternity to celebrate and I’m sure she is!
