Soul Deep

When the world speaks of beauty, it is skin deep.  When God speaks of beauty it is soul deep.  I believe that God wants us to look at ourselves and others through his eyes, at a soul deep level.  Pasts can be ugly and hearts beautiful.

 People can be rich and hearts poor.  What matters is the heart.  In all that we do, we need to do it from a place of love.  Reaching out a helping hand, talking to those who are lonely.  We need to look past the outward appearance and look deeper.  

Every person is precious in God's eyes.  No matter their circumstance, background or past.  They all have the same needs. Love, peace, freedom.  Everyone wants to have a place in this world, a purpose.  Having a purpose provides fulfilment.  For me, I have found that I am far more content, when I am close to God.  My soul settles and that desire to pursue more of the world is replaced by more of God.   There is a peace that I cannot explain, even in the hardest of times.  I know that no matter what I face, God is in control and inevitably, it will work out.  Yes, there may be challenges along the way but the worry and anxiety lessens as I believe in the promises of God.

This world strips hope, peace and freedom from our hands.  We can walk blindly around, never experiencing joy and peace. Instead lives are in chaos and people feel totally lost in a world that does not care.   I find comfort knowing that God always cares.  I am not insignificant in his eyes.  He cares enough to know every little thing about me.  

I hope that in what I do, in the years I have on this earth, that I can show others that same love, hope, peace and freedom that I have found in God.
