If we’re looking for “lovely,” we have to look no further than the face of Jesus. If we are seeking to think on the things that are noble and pure, things that are admirable and praiseworthy, we need only to think on Jesus.
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23: 34
What fantastic grace and mercy is this? Doesn’t this just tell us all we need to know about the heart of Jesus? If His love for us was that deep in that moment, think of how strong that love is for us every moment of every day.
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of Earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace.”
If your eyes are turned to His glory and grace, your heart will be filled with gratitude and your eyes will see the lovely all around you. The hurts and heartaches will grow dim and the ability to see all that is worthy and good will strengthen as you are guided by His love.
Every day is the passion of Christ and every day is Easter morning.
May you see all that is lovely, seeing through the eyes of Jesus and through His love for us.
