Saturday, I stood in the breezeway, sipping percolated coffee, watching our people play in the lake. At one point, the most mischievous of our three kiddos silently snuck towards his sister, intent upon capsizing her banana float and submerging her.
He stopped momentarily, and glanced up at the cabin. “Are you watching me?” he called, guiltily.
“Should I be?” I asked.
“Ugh…no,” came the reply.
“Someone’s always watching you,” I told him.
“Oh, yeah,” he said.
It’s funny how easily we forget.
God never sleeps.
And He tells us, quite clearly in Proverbs 5:21, “For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and He examines all his paths.”
So He’s always watching.
That’s comforting and concerning all at the same time.
Dare you today to put your bracelet or watch (if you still wear one ) on your other wrist. Or, put a hair band around your right wrist.
Use it to remind you that we are never quite fully alone. Knowing that we’re never completely out of our Father’s view should help us in two ways – first, provide us with comfort when we are anxious or afraid, and two, help us walk in the His Ways, assuming we know enough of the Bible to know what They are…
I know from experience that it helps to remember He’s always there.
And I just love it that Someone fully “gets” me, when others who should, don’t.
It’s sooo good to know and be known.
Respecting, loving, and obeying God often results in respecting and loving others, particularly those who don’t deserve it. We are never more like Christ than when we are BEING love/respect to those who haven’t earned it. It’s not easy, but it’s the journey worth taking.
