from where i sit i can see a messy lived in desk, kids artwork, school certificates, photos of the ones i love

i can see my chunky rings, identity definers

my ipod, charging for whatever my night brings

sunscreen and leave in conditioner – the essentials for summer and swimming

i see my life, in micro

things and things that represent doing and purpose, dreaming and potential, destiny and promise


i see grace and gratitude, God’s hand at work in and through my life, His great tapestry and master craftsmanship


there are times when i don’t see, where i feel distracted and discouraged

when the clutter and the things choke creativity and confidence

it takes refocus and refixing my eyes upon God

(and sometimes a desk tidy!)


Psalm 121:1  I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from?

2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.


i will see the unseen.  i will see and trust.

i will look past the today’s into tomorrow.

i will see the testimony of my past and the promise for the future.

i will see God, my loving heavenly Father, creator of heaven and earth.

i will see hope.  grace.


from where i sit i can see i am not alone.  Jesus is near.
