Have you imagined what life would be like without all the fantastic things you can achieve, create, or how the things you create make you feel? Better still, how are you able to create such amazing things? The beautiful things we are surrounded by—family, friends, nature, pets. How are you able to become a conduit for so much greatness and possibility? How are you able to become a partaker of the happenstances of life that surround you? A witness of how circumstances fold and unfold themselves, both good and bad.

Your passion and creativity are birthed through the beauty of God—The Master of Creativity Himself, the Great Artist. Read on and let this poem resonate with you.
The Beauty of God – A Poem
The beauty of God is astonishing, wonderful, and spectacular, Is radiant, versatile, and yet modest, Is beautiful, glamorous, and stunning, Is breath-taking, exuberant, and yet compassionate, Is enchanting, phenomenal, and magnificent, Is like a shining light, touching every soul— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God! The beauty of God lies in us, knowing we are blessed, When He healed the hurting pain— When He delivered us from deadly mistakes— When He renewed our strength like the eagle bold— When He stopped the hand of the enemy— When He moved us away from calamity— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God!
“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” — Ashley Smith.
The beauty of God lies in our communication with Him now, It can be seen in our prayers still— It can be felt in our daily activities—if we can but pay attention all— It can be heard through the stranger’s call— It can be seen when we laud Him in endless praise—Tehilah! It can be heard through our dreams our night song speaks— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God! The beauty of God in our obedience to His will rests’ We are by His glorious grace— We overcome by His mercy, Oh! Meek and mild— We are redeemed by His love everlasting and free— We are victorious by His wondrous works of glee— We are surrounded by His perfect peace so pure— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God!
“Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.” — Psalm 50:2, ESV.
The beauty of God lies in us admiring His creative hands, When the birds chirp, tweet, and sweetly sing— When the rolling-rippling-waters peacefully flow— not knowing where it’s going to end whether high or low, When spiders bounce in their fractal furry web and sling, When the rainbow exhibits its vibrant colors bright— When butterflies stand on flowers white and blue— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God! The beauty of God lies in when we realize— We realize we cannot know it all— We realize we can never be everything— We realize we cannot fight every battle— We realize He knows how much we can handle— We realize we are not always picture-perfect, but yet He loves us just the way we are all the same, Oh! How I love the beauty of my God!
“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.” — John Keats.
The beauty of God can be seen all around us— We just need to listen more, Be attentive more, Be patient more, Be intentional more, To behold more of His wonder, Oh! How I love the beauty of my God. The beauty of God, how lovely it is to behold it ; How lovely it is to embrace it— How lovely it is to have it surround us— How lovely it is to have it embody us— How lovely it is to have it work in our lives— Oh! How I love the beauty of my God, I just can’t do without it.
