Looking for Lovely

Lovely according to Merriam-Webster is defined as: delightful for beauty, harmony or grace.

That's actually a title to a book. Looking for Lovely. Not my book but the phrase resonated with me today. With all that's happening in our world today, it's imperative that we are intentionally looking for lovely. Especially in the midst of whatever hard thing we are facing. Looking for lovely is not running from reality, glossing over the facts, or sugar coating the truth. It's not fake it till you make it self talk. Rather, it's the expression of a son or daughter who lives from a place as the Father's beloved. 

Looking for lovely is choosing to live loved and cared for. It's believing that our Daddy has a plan, and He's working it out for our good. It's being confident that God holds our future and He holds us. Looking for lovely is staring reality in the face, facing the facts, stripping down the truth and saying, "blessed be the name of the Lord." And it's possible because of the redemptive work of Jesus. 

If there is breath in our lungs, there is lovely to be found. While it may require discipline, effort, there is lovely to be found. Your words and confession have life giving power- to set your heart free. It is true, there is lovely in the midst of ___________________ and it is available for me and you. You fill in the blank. In God's time, he makes all things lovely and beautiful. Our job, let's look for it. 

Looking for lovely. Today and forevermore.
