The world is such a beautiful place. But it is also a broken world where ugly resides with beauty, evil resides with good.
The beauty is a reminder of God’s presence.
Why is their both? I don’t know the answer and believe me, I’ve had my times of shaking my fist at him. Thing is, God does not reject us for this. He understands and patiently waits for us to trust him through accepting both as it comes. What else can we do? Live out our lives with anger or bitterness? If we do, we’ll soon stop seeing the beauty.
When life hurts, when things get tough, God always sends something beautiful. In fact, it’s when you are steeped in the ugliness that beauty becomes more vivid, more appreciated, and more focused.
Let peace settle over you. Be patient. Embrace beauty.
