Ecclesiastes 3:11

"He as made everything beautiful in its time....." NIV

"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time...." KJV

It's very difficult for us to see that everything has beauty in it. Sometimes the way our lives go, it seems that any beauty is non-existent. But when we look at the caterpillar locking itself within a tiny cocoon for a period of time, we wonder what beauty could there be in that. In time, the cocoon begins to crack and open. There is a traumatic struggle that seems nothing but death could possibly result. Where's the beauty in that? But, finally, there emerges the most beautiful butterfly that spreads it's wings and flutters through the air with graceful freedom. There's the beauty! If we begin to think of our own struggles as part of the process to God's beauty, we will have hope.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for becoming discouraged when things just don't seem to go right. Fill our hearts and minds with the understanding that everything is beautiful in Your time. Help us rejoice that things will work out for our good and Your glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.
