When she walks into a room people are captured by her beauty
Reference: v.6 For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord?
Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? (TNIV Bible)
Explore: I work with one of the most amazing people I have ever met!
It’s hard to sum up this sensational human being in just a couple of words, but let me give you a small snapshot into my brilliant colleague.
To begin with, she is one of the funniest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around. She is witty, creative, and her plays on words bring a smile to my face every time. Her sense of humour is so quick and she makes people feel special by including them in her personal jokes.
Next is her gift of singing. Whether it’s Broadway, jazz, pop or worship, my friend brings the sound of angels to every song. Even when she’s singing a quick little ditty, she is able to make a perfect sound. I could listen to her beautiful voice all day.
On top of all this she is STUNNING. She works hard to hold a perfect figure and her sense of fashion is current and funky. When she walks into a room people are captured by her beauty and she stands out in a crowd.
These three things stand out to me most, although I could go on for pages as I mention that she is loyal, compassionate, dedicated, intelligent, spiritual, faithful, passionate, loving…
As you can see, my colleague is an amazing human being. When I first met her I thought that I would feel daunted by her perfection. It would have been easy to hold her at arms length to protect myself from feeling intimidated by her.
While some may resent her gifts I find myself celebrating all that she is. I feel so blessed to have her in my life and honoured to be able to call her my friend.
Application: Comparing myself to my friend can sometimes feel like when we compare others to God. Nothing can come close to being as good as God.
But instead of holding ourselves aloof from God, knowing that we will never be as good as Him, we should celebrate Him instead. Just as I feel with my friend, we can feel honoured to have God in our lives, and rejoice in the fact that He is so amazing and wants the best for us.
Prayer: Lord, You could do anything at all and yet you choose to love and care for us. Thank you for being in our lives. Amen.
Who do you feel honoured to have in your life?
