God takes one still life piece of beauty and speaks volumes to bring us life and perspective. Today I am sharing snapshots of God’s glory with reflections and questions to give us the chance to go deeper in our own lives. Each image stopped me long enough to ponder – why this scene and why now??

swan reflection

One reflection shares an image that is both real and at the same time not exactly what it seems. Does your life portray the real you or is it the reflection of a person who faces fear or uncertainty in becoming who you were meant to be?

bridge made of bricks

A patchwork of bricks lines the side of this bridge. Each piece is unique in size, shape and how it fits together with the other bricks. We are the bricks – God made each of us unique in our gifts and in how we interact with others. How will we use our gifts to complete this puzzle of bringing people together for God?

flower petals

I see God’s masterpiece of love in each flower petal stretched wide to give and receive fully. Where do you see love reflected in your life and are you a reflection of love for others?

tree trunk

Strong… stalwart… imperfect… blemished! Each word describes the tree trunk above and each could describe us. The beauty in the picture is that one tree trunk gives us a glimpse into how God grows us into who He wants us to be. He starts with a seed, nourishes it with His word, love and grace and grows it into a strong, but perhaps imperfect being, that when seeking after Him will grow into a beauty as this tree trunk.

bridge

Our journeys take many detours along the way. Bridges close the gap between the unknown and known. Is your path clear? Do you know the direction you are headed? Who or what becomes the bridge to cross from the unknown into the known?

Every snapshot moment that I paused to soak in and let God speak to me through have impacted me greatly. God loves to treat us to His creation through the beauty that we experience along the way. He also nourishes our own beauty which is magnified when we reflect it back to Him.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:3-4

I loved pulling these photographs and reflections together for this post. I am thinking that I would love to do this again. I would love to hear your thoughts and whether there were any questions that really got you digging deeper into your own life?

Hope your day is blessed and I appreciate each and everyone of you!
