We see things the way we want to see them. Broken. Dirty. Rich. Poor. Some choose to look more closely and it is a gift. Today I want to share with you an excerpt from the book Kisses From Katie...
" My goofy, trash-loving children are constant reminders of God. They look at things that I see as used, broken, and dirty and they see treasure. Can you imagine? God looks at everyone, broken, old, dirty, probably not a whole lot more exciting than an old toilet paper roll, and sees treasure. Something He loves dearly, something He would die for. Wow."
"...Thank You [God] that when I feel old and used-up and broken and no more exciting than a cardboard box, You whisper that You love and value me, and that in Your eyes, I am shiny and new."
That, dear friends, is how God sees you too. You are a treasure.
How we choose to look at life, objects, circumstances and people is up to us. We can see the beauty ("treasure") or we can see just one facet. The choice is ours to make - daily - minute.by.minute.
Where do you see beauty? xo
