Something Beautiful ♥

In His time. In His time.
He makes all thing beautiful in His time.
Lord, my life to You I bring—
May each song I have to sing—
Be to You a lovely thing in Your time.

“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”
....................................................~ Ecclesiastes 3:11

Not your time.
Not my time.
In HIS time.

Why are we so impatient? Why do we rush about and get all upset and stressed over nothing? That’s all it is really… in the light of all of eternity… this life here on earth is really *nothing*. It’s a vapor. Here today. Gone tomorrow. It's over in the blink of an eye.

But it’s beautiful. It’s a gift. It’s life.

Here’s another thought for you… no matter what your past, no matter how deep in sin you once were, no matter what people may think and say of you now… In Christ, your life is beautiful. Through God’s eyes, your life is Perfect. Through Jesus’ blood, your life is Clean. Amazing. Miracle.

No one is above falling. So before you start bragging on how great you are, take heed lest you fall. (“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” ~ I Corinthians 10:12) And if you’re bragging about yourself in the first place… well, then… I have no words for you. The truth is, no one is great. None of us are anything good.

The Bible says:
“there is none good but one, that is, God.” (Mark 10:18b)

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10-12)

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.” (Romans 7:18)

(I love good news…)

“For He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”
~II Corinthians 5:21

Something Beautiful, something good—
All my confusion He understood.
All I had to offer Him was bitterness and strife—
But He made Something Beautiful out of my life.


  1. Loved this. I used one of these verses this past weekend as I shared at my church. God does make all things beautiful in His time.

  2. Heather, I am so blessed to meet you.
    I popped over here from our beautiful friend Alleluiabelle's.
    The song that you reference "Something Beautiful" is one of my favorites!
    And your page really is "something beautiful!"

I am Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! I am intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.

I am Elizabeth Bennet!
