A Beautiful Life. I Peter 1:1-9. Dec 02 2019
“ But He knoweth the way that I should take; when He hath tried me. I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10
There are some sunsets that are breath taking ! Recently i saw one of the most amazing sunsets, and everyone remarked how beautiful it was.
So what makes some sunsets more glorious than others. There are several factors that affect beauty, but I believe clouds are the most important. Most people do not like clouds. Mainly because they hide the sun . So we hear lots of complaints on rainy days or cloudy days. Think about it, what is more important the rain or the sun. We need the right amount of both of these things. And so with the right amount of clouds we get beautiful sunsets.
Life too has its clouds. We have trials, hardships, sickness and grief. We look at them as bad things, but Scripture tells us something different. James 1:3 says, “ The trying of your faith workers patience.” With the right amount of trials. We become stronger, deeper and more beautiful in God’s eyes. We need those clouds in our lives to make us more beautiful.
Think about the times in your life that you grow closer to the Lord and found Him more precious. More times than not, they were times when things were cloudy in your life. Just like the sunsets get prettier with the right amount of clouds.
God uses trials to beautify us and grow us into the persons He wants us to be.
