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.
