Who out there has a lust for life? Can’t wait each day to come upon beauty? Psalm 34:12 MSG
A camera and a whisper from God sent me on a journey last spring . . . searching for beauty in the pain.
These are the unedited photos I took around my house–as far as I could walk at the time. I saved them in a folder on my computer, entitled it “small victories” and gave them the captions you read here.
These pictures became the evidence of my small victories–the smallest of small baby steps away from pain and darkness into the light and life of healing.
This is the day God started to color my dark world beautiful. The day the simple, ordinary views of my life became extra-ordinary glimpses of the beauty of LIFE all around me.
This is the day I understood the scripture above–that to recover my lust for life–to experience my pain and darkness redeemed–was about eagerly searching each day for the beauty OF LIFE.
Psalm 23:6 says that God’s love and beauty chase after us every day of our lives.
This spring day last year, I finally turned around to see it.
Walk on a rainbow trail: walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty.
There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail. – Robert Motherwell
Praying for you to turn around and see the beauty and love of God chasing you, where you will find your rainbow trail, and where God colors your life beautiful each and every day.
