Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

Focusing on the beauty of God's work often requires seasonal thinking. You may feel the ugliness of the season you are in. But I've found that if you will look at a different angle, something else in your life will be in his perfect season of beauty. Trust the timing of the Father to make ALL things beautiful and enjoy whatever is before you, seeking to see his creative, magnificent touch.#everythingbeautiful #biblereading#preachingtomyself

So while we look for beauty on earth throughout this month's#biblereading challenge, if at any point, you see no beauty, grab on to this verse and remember your Savior loves you and awaits for you. #everythingbeautiful

Isaiah 52:1-7

Have you ever seen a runner's feet? Mid race training? Mine have callouses and rough places; they really are anything but pretty. But the beauty being discussed in our passage today isn't describing the physical attributes of the feet themselves. No, the beauty of a devoted messenger who spreads good news radiates a beauty far beyond the mirror. #everythingbeautiful #biblereading

Personally, between the long holiday weekend, a one-day family trip, and working on my next book proposal, I didn’t focus on this month’s Bible reading challenge as much as I wanted to for the first week. I’m really looking forward to spending a deeper time in God’s Word in the next few days, especially as my heart aches for the strife in our world.

May we be aware of the time to weep with those who weep and do so.

Rachel

There is so much sorry in the world and the bible helps me get through each day. Thank You Rachael

    Rachel, I am so thankful for these Bible Reading Challenges. I have been with you since the “In His Presence.” I’ve read ONE MORE STEP and suggest it for a few friends. I pray that your family in WV is slowly recovering from the flood. I loved the picture of your dad showing joy in his face.
    Oh! How we need the beauty of God’s Word at this time in our country. So glad that He is in control.
