Thank you for stopping at Beholding Him Ministries (BHM). We pray that you will find BHM to be a place of blessing and rest for your soul. – a place where you can take a minute and just breathe.
We all need to escape the busyness of life from time to time, to just catch our breath. This is a ‘keep it moving world’ we live in and it is full of what I like to call stuff. All the busyness becomes a yoke: run here, run the children there, cook, shop, clean, soccer practice, soccer game, business meetings, PTA meetings, church meetings, etc. Along with all that comes the troubles of life: pain, loss, misunderstanding, disappointments, broken relationships, illness and even death.
Yes, every now and again life demands that we not only slow down to breathe but to behold. Behold Jesus! When we behold the One who created us and in whom we live, move and have our being, our breaths become less and less shallow. Beholding Jesus allows us to realize the grace, hope, and Truth that only He offers for each day.
That’s the story of our logo. No matter how busy life becomes, no matter how many clouds come rushing in, no matter how dark the clouds may be, no matter the stuff that comes in them, God is with us! The Son is with us and the sun is breaking through. His grace is sufficient for our every need and our hope is in Him. He is the Light of the world and His Word is a light unto our paths. Our God is worthy of our slowing down to behold His beauty, majesty and Word and express our love to Him.
The picture is the sun rising at Virginia Beach. Most people look at the picture and exclaim how beautiful, even breath taking. I agree BUT the beauty of the created pales in comparison to the splendor of the Creator! A closer look at Jesus will help us see the magnificent honor and glory of the One True and Living God!
So please, come often and let’s behold Jesus together as we gaze upon His beauty and seek His manifested presence. We will find that anyone who puts his or her trust in Him will not be put to shame. The Lord inspired one hymn writer to say it like this:
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
One last thing: see that sun shining on the ocean? In real time, it was actually dancing! It symbolizes joy dancing in our hearts when we slow down, breathe, and behold Jesus!
For in Him we live and move and have our being.
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9a
As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.“
But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King.
