Treasuring His Beauty

Strange how life is. Sometimes it is such an un-conscience thing... living. We go about doing activities and never realize the reality, the splendor and the blessing of living. Sometimes, life feels like a plod, going from one thing to another, struggling, falling and doubting. And there are those times when life is so beautiful and invaluably precious, not because of the outward circumstances (whether good or bad), but because there is that sense of the fragility of life, the beauty of tender moments with loved ones, the sweet companionship of a dear friend, the joys and simplicity of 'ordinary' duties and wholesome pleasures and most of all, that tingling sense of closeness and communion with one's Heavenly Father, that feeling that He is so near; that He is living in us, that feeling of loving companionship and Help during every moment of the day. His Holy Spirit ministering to our hearts and upholding us every moment. That is how every day should be lived, treasuring his beauty and His Presence with us in our lives.
The thing is He is always there, always close to each one of us, always upholding us! Oh, but how often do we realize it? How often do we seek to treasure Him and His Presence in our daily lives? My desire is to cultivate and always keep fresh the love of God, the joy of the Lord and the rejoicing of our redemption in Him, being filled with the Spirit and the Power of His Might. Every day of my life, through good times and hard times--for He is our true joy and delight. May this be, like the Psalmist, our prayer...
One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
