Beautiful Strength

If you think that your past disqualifies you from the present,


You are NOT defined by your past!

Just because there was pain, that does not mean that there won’t be beauty!

‚ÄúTherefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her.” – Hosea 2:14


Beautiful Strength (c)Gracie K. Harold 2017

This cactus blossom reminds me that any beauty in this world is a reminder that

God is love.

He could have left us in our sinful, painful choices; but instead, he enters our pain

and provides comfort, love and redemption.

Today, may you see past the pain; and may your eyes be open to see the beauty that He has for you!

Beloved, you are loved so much more than you comprehend!

Rest in His love today, receive the beauty!

Love, Gracie K.



You and I don’t have to be perfect in order to fit into the grand scheme of God!

The beauty of this shot is found in the craggy, rough, rugged edges all

stacking together

in balance

and harmony.

God the Father doesn’t roughly take us and

hammer away

until we all look like uniform bricks in a wall.

He is the chief cornerstone.

“Jesus said to them, ‘Have you ever read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. ¬†This came from the Lord and is wonderful in our eyes?’ “

Matthew 21:42

Holman Christian Standard Bible

He was rejected.

He gets it.

“He is good, and His love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Rough, craggy edges and all.

“His love endures forever.”

Psalm 100:5

He loves you.

Beloved, Be loved. Be love!
