Jesus, You Are Simply...Beautiful!


My prayer...


“My Jesus, You planned a long time ago that this week’s challenge topic would be, ‘Beautiful’.
I smiled when I saw that, and as You can see, it has only taken a moment for my tears to course down my face as I ponder the question, “What is most ‘beautiful’ to me?’
I already know what to write about.
YOU!
There’s none other more beautiful than You!
And what can compare to the beauty of Your Presence?
Nothing!
I could look around at created beauty for inspiration and elaborate on a carefully crafted story with my fertile imagination.
But I can’t! I can’t go further than You...the epitome of true beauty!

Jesus, I am enthralled by Your beauty.
Your holiness is beautiful.
Your goodness is beautiful.
Your Name is beautiful...whispered from my lips your Name is like the arresting fragrance of costly perfume - capturing my heart, delighting my senses.

The sound of Your Voice, the feel of Your embrace...I love the passionate beauty of Your eyes, and the purity of Your Words.
The beauty of Your presence leaves me breathless...speechless.
What can I say when You are near?
I love the intimate silence between us as I sit before You.
Lost in Your presence I’ve discovered that words are not necessary.

What privilege, what beauty You daily lavish on me.
You have ravished my heart with the whispers of Your love.
My heart yearns for You alone.
Jesus, You are a rare delicacy, a trophy of exquisite beauty.

My Darling Jesus, I know that others may not understand our love, but it doesn’t matter, because having tasted of Your delights, unspeakable pleasures from Your right hand, and to have beheld You in Your glorious beauty, I am fully satisfied.
I’m satisfied with having seen Your likeness.
All I can do is just bask in the beauty of Your love for me.
You bestow Your beauty on me, calling me, “Your Beloved, Your Darling.”

Of all Your virtues, I love Your holiness the most.
The awesome beauty of Your holiness thrills my heart.
You are holy and holiness is the atmosphere of heaven.
Reveal to me the beauties of Your holiness.

Jesus, Your beauty is heaven’s glorious fragrance that you desire to release from within my yielded soul.
You have made beauty arise from the ash heap of my broken life.
Heaven’s Darling, I am drawn irresistibly to You.
No, it is more than that! I am captivated, totally smitten by Your beauty.
Who can compare with the beauty of the Lord?
Not one!

O my Jesus, take me away with You to the cleft in the rock.
Just You and me.
Show me Your face.
Let me hear Your voice.
For Your voice is sweet, and Your face is lovely.
Take me into Your chambers...lavish on me the hidden pleasures that are only found in Your heavenly chambers.

Our romance and our dance are robed in the purest beauty imaginable.
Our love song is the song of the night.
When I awake I remember You.
When I sleep I dream of You.

All You are and all You do is forever imprinted with Your alluring beauty.

You are my Darling.
Lover of my soul...I love You.
Jesus, You are simply...BEAUTIFUL!”


Psalm 17:15, 96: 6,9; 110: 36, Song 1:3, 2:14. NIV.

I once saw Him in a dream, standing in the clouds. I used the word beautiful to describe Him but that was because I didn't have other befitting description--He is actually more than beautiful. He reveals the glory of His beauty to those who have forsaken all to seek Him. Thanks for capturing the picture of His beauty.

You said it in the beginning - "my prayer". A wonderful personal description therein. Actually, as I read this I thought, what a nice hymn this would make. Thanks.
Garnet Miller 11/15/05
Delightful prose!
Beth Muehlhausen11/16/05
Very worshipful, very involving!
Val Clark11/17/05
What a wonderful closeness you have expressed with Jesus. Thank you for sharing it. Yeggy
Julianne Jones11/17/05
I felt that I was treading on holy ground. Your love and delight in Jesus just shone throughout this piece. Extremely personal and yet a challenge to the reader to seek and enter into such a relationship. I agree that it could work as a hymn - I found myself wanting to close my eyes and listen and worship. Thank you for sharing.
Catherine Pollock11/17/05
This flowed together as beautifully as a song - a song that is refreshing and renewing to my spirit. Thank you so much for sharing.
Cassie Memmer11/17/05
Every word true and 'beautifully' done!
Pat Guy 11/18/05
Only one who has suffered so, can 'see, taste, and experience'.... Beauty. Beautiful.
Anita Neuman11/18/05
This is not something that someone could just make up. You have perfectly captured the heart of someone who is really in love with the Lord. Well done, dear friend!
Shari Armstrong 11/18/05
Very well done.
Linda Watson Owen11/19/05
A beautiful prayer straight from a beautiful heart!

True, No other beauty can compare to Jesus. This is Simply Beautiful. I Love your Winning words from the heart.

“There’s none other more beautiful than You!
And what can compare to the beauty of Your Presence?
Nothing!
I could look around at created beauty for inspiration and elaborate on a carefully crafted story with my fertile imagination.
But I can’t! I can’t go further than You...the epitome of true beauty!”
Blessing. Helen

Beautiful Karen. Thank you for writing such an intimate piece and putting it out here for us to share. My favourite lines: "I love the intimate silence between us as I sit before You.
Lost in Your presence I’ve discovered that words are not necessary." I long for that, and cherish it when it is there. Beautiful.
Suzanne R11/23/05
What a lovely (I hesitate to use the word 'beautiful' because it is so pale in comparison with the beauty of Jesus that you've brought out so well) ... as I was saying, what a beautiful insight into the heart of someone truly in love with her Lord. Thanks for letting us have a glimpse.
Suzanne R11/23/05
Oops ... I meant 'lovely' in the comment above ... truly!!!
