My Beautifier

Psalm 51:5-12

"Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being, and in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom. Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness, let the bones which YOU have broken rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence and do not take the Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit."

He IS my beautifier.

~making beauty from ashes

~taking a dirty, sinful heart and making it clean

~using the trials in my life to make me shine HIS reflection

~shining His light in my good works

~taking a scarred mind and making it new

~using a vessel not able to birth a new life and birthing 4 beautiful children from my heart

~changing my insubordinate attitude and giving me an attitude of submission to my man

~changing my will to be in line with His will

How has he beautified you today?
