Thoughts on Beauty


A beauty that is captivating and powerfully redemptive.


I saw a twitter post from an acquaintance of mine a while back. He’d posted a picture of his grand daughter making a face. Underneath the picture was the caption – “You can’t hide beauty.”

For some stupid reason that picture and that caption made me cry. I felt like such an idiot and was really glad to be home alone. I mean how in the world could I have explained that to my family?

At first I thought it was because I missed my grandfather and seeing that post brought back those memories. But then the gals in my Sunday School class started asking if we could study “Captivating” by Staci Eldredge next. I bought a copy of the book and started to read.

I found this quote on Eve from chapter two. –

What is Eve telling us about God?

“First, you’ll discover that God is relational to his core, that he has a heart for romance. Second, that he longs to share adventures with us – adventures you cannot accomplish without him. And finally, that God has a beauty to unveil. A beauty that is captivating and powerfully redemptive.”

God has beauty to unveil – and we keep trying to hide it.

I think I know I why I cried.

Great.
