“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”Ecclesiastes 3:11
Each morning if you look east, you’ll see the beautiful sun rising in its perfect timing. Look west in the evening, and you’ll see the sunset in its timing and just as stunning. During the day, you may glory in the sunshine and its warmth. A former atheist told me it was God’s creation that eventually drew her to worship God and follow Christ. “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
The Bible tells us that God has put eternity into our hearts. We have a longing for Him that shouts from His creation and from our empty souls; we know that there is more to life than this world. God in His timing makes sinners beautiful because they come to know Him and are found in the glorious beauty and holiness of Christ.
Never doubt that in time the Lord will make something beautiful out of the ashes of life. He already has done so for each sinner He redeems.
God has made you beautiful in Christ!
