Taste and see the beauty God has woven into the world. Savor it. Express it with the creativity He has given you.
Nicolas Herman was staring at a barren tree in the middle of winter when it dawned on him that the tree would soon be resurrected into gorgeous greens. From that—not from someone’s testimony or persuasive words—he believed in the God of grace, providence, and new life. Nicolas was profoundly and lastingly changed; we know him today as Brother Lawrence.
Beauty is powerful, both for the messages it carries as well as for its own sake. It’s moving, inspirational, persuasive, and . . . well, beautiful. It’s a reflection of the Creator. How could it not be?
Too many people go through life not noticing that power. Don’t be one of them. Taste and see the beauty God has woven into the world. Savor it. Express it with the creativity he has given you. You have been made in the image of a very creative God; enter into a celebration of the Creator’s heart. Few things stir the spirit so deeply. Your spirit will come alive with wonder, purpose, and the presence of God when you tune in to his artistry and enjoy it.
