Seeing Something Beautiful

Never lose the opportunity of seeing something beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Seeing something beautiful‘ is easy when we are children. We gaze upon the world with fresh eyes and a sense of wonder at every new sight. The older we get the more chaotic our lives become. Responsibilities multiply, pile up, and pile on. The fresh eyes and sense of wonder are replaced by tired eyes and a sense of malaise. We barely have enough time to accomplish all our daily goals, let alone find a moment to stop and smell the roses.

The world we live in

The world we live in is quick and chaotic. It demands reverence to this tempo and threatens those that fall behind with irrelevance and lack. Our days are filled with things that must get done!  Work makes demands. Family makes demands. Social media makes demands. All of these things are coming at us a million miles a minute and each of them assumes that they should be the priority.

Take Control

It is up to us, as individuals, to take control, step on the brakes, and take a moment to appreciate the beautiful things around us. They are all around you every day and it takes but a fleeting moment to recognize them, smile to let God now you appreciate them, and move on with your busy day.

Recognize the importance of OPPORTUNITY

The most important word in the quote above is ‘opportunity’. The beautiful things (God Things) are there for us to enjoy. Truly SEEING something beautiful is the opportunity and it can be either taken advantage of or ignored. The choice is up to you.

 

Testify With Your T-Shirt

Our mission at IBelieveInGodThings.com is to provide quality Christian apparel that helps you, our customers, Testify With Your T-Shirt. That’s the elevator pitch. It is simple, to the point, and encompasses the entire scope of what we are trying to do here. The one thing it does not do is reveal why we started this company in the first place!

Dark News Everywhere

The heart of the matter is simply this; if you turn on the nightly news you would be forgiven for thinking that the world is a terrible place and the end is quite possibly near. Terrible things are happening no matter where you look, or from what portion of the world you call home. Negativity is the food on which we dine morning, afternoon, and evening. Social media (a medium that has a tremendous potential for good) is a breeding ground for hate, intolerance, and, at times, outright stupidity.

From Darkness, Light!

With all this negativity God provides the light that is the counterbalance. He does it all day, every day, and in every way. It is in all the little things that make us smile, or laugh, or cry for joy; It’s as small as the smile of a child, and as grand as thousands of volunteers showing up with boats to help the stranded in Houston. Gods light is everywhere—if we just open our eyes to see.

 

Mathew 13:15-17

15 For this people’s heart has grown callous; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.…

We Are The Counterbalance

We at IBelieveInGodThings.com believe that, through all this darkness, it is more important than ever to open our eyes to God’s light—and to share that light with everyone we possibly can. Our t-shirts are designed to start conversations about God and share his light. We certainly appreciate it if/when you purchase one because it is what we love, and what we do.

What Can You Do? Testify With Your T-Shirt…and so much more!

This post is not a commercial though—it is a call to action. You don’t need to buy a shirt to spread light. If you do be prepared to have an open, heart felt, loving conversation with anyone who asks you about it. Tell them about the God Things you’ve witnessed lately, and ask them if there’s anything you can do to make their day better. If you don’t there are still plenty of other ways spread God’s light and be a positive force—a counterbalance—in the world. Here are a few ideas:

  • Testify with your T-Shirt
  • Go ALL POSITIVE on your social media accounts. Post and reply only in a positive fashion. You will be amazed at the difference this can make in your life, as well as the life of those around you!
  • Check out CharityNavigator.com and donate to a worthy cause.
  • Ask the first person you meet each day if there is anything you can do to make their day better.
  • Smile at everyone you see today!
  • Check in on a neighbor you haven’t seen in awhile. Ask them how they are, what they’ve been up to, or if there’s anything they need help with.
  • Volunteering is positivity at its very best. You can find plenty of opportunities to volunteer that suit you at VolunteerMatch.org
