Quieting My Heart: Beauty that Draws Us

It’s just a part of us,
a magnet that draws us
to beauty -
it fills us, inspires us,
and brings a calm,
a sense of peace
in the deepest parts
of our souls.

The beauty of a rose,
the shimmering lake,
the majestic mountains,
the ocean waves
and the sandy beaches.

There is no end,
and we travel far,
and we look close
in our own backyards,
for beauty.

“O Lord, our Lord,
Your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.”
(Psalm 8:1)

“How precious are My children
who are awed by nature’s beauty;
this opens them up 
to My holy Presence.”

(Jesus Calling)
