Souls cry for Beauty

Posted on July 11, 2014 at 7:50 AM

I look at my nails all glittery and pretty. My hands are still hands of age not youth. Yet my fingertips glow with sparkles; may they give You the glory Lord!

May my life glow and sparkle with Your love so people will want to see You as they want to see my shiny fingernails. Let it be so.

As I press into You, I want to know You more and more. It's the true beauty. I open my heart, my arms, my hands to give to You and receive from You. I want more of You!

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP)

31 But those who wait for the Lord

[who expect, look for, and hope in Him]

shall change and renew their strength and power;

I want to change and be renewed in You. I desire Your power and strength running through my veins. I am a warrior in Your army. Your strength does indeed run through my spirit, soul, and body. You are always with me, never leaving me, never!! So my directions are clear~ obey you, and You will enable me to do all Your purpose in me requires. I have no fear! I trust in You!

Your will shall be done! Lord, glitter is pretty, but it is only glamor having no real meaning unless seen through the eyes of Your love. Nothing can compare with Your creations of exquisite splendor in nature, especially Your stars lighting up the darkness of the universe in the night sky.

And our human hunger for beauty causes us to attempt to copy it. It’s Your fault Lord, You created us in Your image and likeness. :)) And You are beautiful! The desire for beauty is in us. Your Goodness, Purity, and Holiness have an exquisite quality of loveliness that calls for our souls to imitate.

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
