His Beauty Meets Attitudes

“Blessed are . . .”  Matthew 5:3

Jesus goes on to say blessed are the poor, the mourning, the meek, the persecuted.  Obviously He sees things much differently than I.

Oh Jesus, please help me remember that there is more to what I see and understand.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

Blessed Ones

You sat upon the mountain
with the masses down below

and when You opened Your mouth
the beautitudes did flow

and we’re still taught
by every word You spoke.

  1. Deb, I love this devotion! Normally I wouldn’t try to “edit” your poems, but when I read this I couldn’t help but think it would flow better if this third line was “the beautitudes did flow”. It is hard to comprehend the beatitudes, but we trust He knew what He was saying and is right about who will be blessed. Peace, Linda

  2. You can edit away with my poems! ha! I need all the help I can get! 🙂 So, thank you for that and for commenting always. The beautitudes are beautiful . . .so like Him in the way they are opposite of what we would think or say. I need to remember that. God bless you and make your day beautiful with Him too!

  3. I’ve been thinking about this passage for a few days now. Jesus really does see things differently than we do, doesn’t He. And I’m glad He does!

  4. I think I’m more influenced than I can realize by the world around me. We need Him to help us see what He sees! 🙂 God bless you!

  5. keep on speaking
    i have so much to learn
    🙂

  6. Me too! Still haven’t gotten over the pumpkin pie by God. 🙂 May He shine on you today!

  7. Just wanted to say a happy Sunday to you 🙂

  8. Thank you beautiful Jessie, with a great attitude! 🙂 Hope your Sunday is going good too!
