Thankful Thursday – Rock “Island” Beauty

Ever have one of those days when you wrestle

with identity?

It’s a battle to keep your shoulders back and your face uplifted?

The days when you find yourself

comparing your insides

to other women’s

outer appearance?

In this shot I recently took,

nothing is smooth or perfect.

The beauty is found when the rugged and rough meets

the serenity

of the water.

Beloved,

Find your beauty

by

drawing nearĀ 

to the serenity.

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.

Psalm 27:4 ESV

Rock "Island"

Rock “Island”

I am thankful for His invitation…to simply gaze upon the beauty around me which reflects

His beauty.

I am thankful that He is worthy of my gaze,

and that somehow,

when my gaze is fixed on Him,

His beauty is reflected through me…

scars, rugged edges and all.
