He is beautiful ...

Some weeks back I was looking for some inspiration and a lift, in the midst of various pressures around me. Evening services are rare on Sundays in my locale and so I thought I would go further afield with Nicola, my wife. We found a church with an evening service, which seemed to fit the bill for us. Modern style of worship, preaching, contemporary songs ...

For us it was nice being somewhere where we were not known, nothing was expected of us and we could sing, take part and receive the sermon and think about it. In fact a song that they sang that I had not heard before really spoke to me and encouraged me to get back to early morning walking and praying and listening to God - something that has been a struggle when our dog was older and could not walk far.

We all need times of refreshing among our busy lives, we all need to set apart times to speak to and listen to God. It is in reflecting that we can find the deeper things of God, reflecting on our incredible God and what he has done for us. For me marvelling at what God has created as I walk leads me to be humbled at what Jesus has done through the cross and the hope he offers to all of us who will accept him and walk with him. Its in those moments that I think I see he face most clearly. He truly is beautiful.
