IN YOUR EYES ~
A story is told without words even being spoken
Matthew 10:29-31 New International Version (NIV)
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
God knows us and even the number of hairs on our head. Change happens to each of us and our attitude is important, but doesn't mean it won't hurt or be hard. That's a wow moment for me just knowing God see's the tears inside of me too. Whatever you are facing today, face it with hope and determination to press forward.
Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
IN YOUR EYES ~
I want to pray today for you (reader of my blog, your family and friends). The circle of life is here and yet there is life outside the circle of our families and friends. People who search for answers and the answers remain unknown. We may never know the why of things in life, but God's plan continues to unfold. I do believe in prayer and I have seen miracles with my own eyes. Eyes that have been full of tears and a heart broken. Anger that filled my soul and yet a new beginning takes place. Lets pray:
God, I thank you for a another day of life. Some people reading this right now are happy and full of joy. Yet, others who are broken and search for peace. You said to come to you all who are weary and burdened, and you will give rest. I'm holding on for this young man I met at the pool. His 7 years of waiting on peace is too hard. In his eyes I saw pain and I saw a caring dad. I'm asking now for each people today who needs your holy spirit to bring rest/peace to happen now. I know your a miracle working God and some people need that miracle working power now. I thank you for putting him into my path of life and I promised I would keep praying for him, his son and the mom. Life can be just too hard and you are the only one God who can do it. You brought peace stormy waters when the disciples were afraid, please bring peace to the readers of my blog too. Let this day we a turn around day of joy in lives. AMEN
You know friends, I don't have all the answers of life, but I know that God does. While on this vacation, I have talked to many people. There are broken people who need Jesus and won't walk inside a church. It made me realize how much I can do outside of a church building. We need to be the church and speak to others. Don't be shy and give out what God has given you. A determination to make a difference and allow God freedom in your own lives. Freedom to see past a hurt, a problem, a situation and never stop living for Jesus. I care about you and that's why I write too. Sometimes we just need one person to listen and one person to share a story. I thought I would say that story about this young man, the story of Jesus calming waters for the disciples and know that Jesus can calm your life too.
EYES OF JESUS ~
He can see us right where we are in life.
In our eyes, let's see him right here.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
Purpose this a good day.
