Jesus Makes Us Beautiful

Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

It’s beautiful how Jesus makes us beautiful. When we submit ourselves to Him, it’s a wonder how He works in our lives. The closer we draw to Him, the more our hearts change, so we can reflect His glory. We just have to remember that it’s His timing and not our own. If you’re like me, you may have days when you become frustrated because your progress seems slow. Or perhaps you sometimes find yourself struggling to overcome a certain sin. As long as we’re diligently seeking Him, we are moving forward. We can see how far He’s brought us when we think about how we used to be. We are becoming beautiful as we dwell in the presence of our Savior and saturate our hearts with His Word.

Viewing our lives from an eternal perspective as God does, causes us to bubble over with joy and hope. For we know that where we are now is certainly not the end. On the other side of our earthly life, is more than we can even begin to imagine.

Stay focused on the One who makes you beautiful.
