The closer I come to Jesus, the more stark and contrasting the world appears. It is beginning to turn to grays, but the more I am with Him, take council in His word, fellowship with His disciples, pull away from the distractions of this life, it blackens. This life is tremendously grotesque. The only beauty I can truly see of Him is His unmeasureable Nature, companions professing His love, and the unfolding beauty of my own relationship with Him. These are three beautiful consistencies I see in this life.
