Jesus’ Eyes!

 

To have him look at me!!

Can you feel him look at you?  Do you feel the penetrating love of those eyes?  Matthew had seen him from afar.  He had witnessed miracles.  As a tax collector he wanted to know more of this man Peter called Jesus.  Then it happened!  Christ stopped and looked at Matthew with those eyes of pure love.  Eyes that do not judge… but love.  Eyes that do not condemn… but forgive.  Do you feel the same look Matthew did?  Maybe you long for Christ to look upon you?  Many days I can feel his look.  On those days humility will often bring me to my knees.  To find peace that can only come from the eyes of Jesus.  To know that he loves me.  That the Savior of the world…  the son of the living God… the creator of life… the maker of heaven and earth… the author of ALL I see… LOVES ME!!  Through all my trials, thru all my sin,  thru all my weakness, thru every good and every bad… HE LOVES ME AND HE LOVES YOU!   If you haven’t felt his look… seek it out.  It is a look that will touch the very center of your soul and bring you to your knees.  When you find it… you will never want to let it go.  You will long for the day when you will see his eyes right in front of you.

Just Ask!

Thirty seven times.  Thirty Seven!!  

H2O became wine.  Evil spirits ran in fear.  Fish jumped into nets at his calling.  Leprosy vanished with a touch.  Small fish and simple bread fed thousands with a thought.  Walking on water – no problem.  Blindness vanished with a little spit and mud.  Even a simple touch of his garment brought healing.  Simple words and death’s sting was gone.  Thirty seven times in three years Jesus used the power from his father to heal… to save… to change lives.  Thirty seven times he proved to us that the power of God was present in his spirit.  Why then do we struggle to believe that he will take care of us.  Three hundred and sixty five times in his word he whispers “DO NOT FEAR” but yet we spend our days full of anxiety.  Does not the Holy Spirit live within us?  Does not His Spirit… reside in our hearts… in our souls?  I know it’s hard to comprehend but the same power that performed thirty seven miracles lives in each of us.  That same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available simply for the asking.  So ask!! When you fear,  ask for courage.  When you doubt, ask for confidence.  When you are filled with anxiety ask for peace.  His power will fill you to overflowing.  Just ask!

God’s Child!

Oh how I love being your child!  Each morning I am offered a new day to love and praise you.  A new day to talk to you.  To marvel at your love.  The world and its’ parade tries to still our time.  Hurry from here to there.  This phone call and that meeting.  All the while I’m wishing it could be just me and you.  I spend my day looking for signs of you.  Looking for you to show me another example of your love.  I talk as much as I can, because I know you always listen.  I know you always care.  I know you always love.  I wait for the chance to talk about you to others.  Many times you place people in front that need to hear of you, and times I have to look for the reason.  How I love to talk about you.  To share your love with others.  There seems to be so many that need to know you.  That need to feel the experience of being your child.  Of resting in your love.  I ask that you use me daily until you can’t use me any longer.  This life has so many trials and still so many opportunities.  I want nothing more than to be your child.  To show your love to others.  It is the greatest honor of my life.  Oh how I love being your child!

God Is Tired!

I am so tired!  My heart tells me that God is tired too!  Tired of all the hatred.  Tired of all the lies.  Tired of all the judging.  Tired of all the selfishness.  Since the time of scripture… since the time of Adam and Eve… we have spent lifetimes worried about what is best for us.  Spending year, after year, consumed with  looking out for ourselves instead of concentrating on what pleases our Savor.  We talk about the person different than us, instead of praying for them.  We run to be first in line, instead of allowing others to be.  We spend countless amounts of money to make sure that our way of life remains the same with very little regard for other parts of the world.   I’m tired… of a world where trivial things, that do not matter to our Savior, are more important than a hungry child.  Our father has given us everything we need to make our world work.  He has given us all the directions we need to have a joyful life.  We simply need to follow the instructions found in his word.  Love him with all we have and love others as much as we love him.  Follow that… teach that… live that…  and don’t make it harder than he intended for it to be.
