Day 2 : Just Look


Just

look

at

Me!

My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to My words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverb 4:20-23 Just

look

at

Me! Let your eyes look straight ahead; Fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:25-27

Even when I

Even when you

look

away~

to the right

or

to the left

He is still

looking

our way

waiting for you

waiting for me

to turn back

to

look

into

His eyes...

because

when we do

we will

take the path

that leads to

peace.

But when we

look

away

He is patient,

even in our impatience,

which is what makes our eyes turn from

Him

and

turn to others

or to other things.

What or where do you

look

when what you see or feel is just not enough?

When you believe that He just isn't enough?

I remember so clearly

when

God opened my eyes

to see

that I would actually turn my head

to the right or

to the left

when I wanted to do something

that I knew that I shouldn't do

because

maybe

just maybe

He wouldn't see me

and

I wound't feel so bad

making the choice to do

what down deep

I (really) do not want to do, Romans 7: 20

Oh when the rebellious child in me begins to emerge.

Even though I know

that all have to do is to

Just

look

&

Fix my eyes on Him

but instead I choose to look

to the right

to the left

because

whatever I am

~thinking

~feeling

`seeing

overtakes

whatever

truth

I am not believing

that

He is saying. What if we always looked first to Him?

But

even when

we take our eyes off of

Him

He never takes His eyes off of us.

Even when

we choose to go

to the right

to the left

He is there

always

looking

at you~

the you

He created

to be

His

always..

no matter

Whether you turn to the right or to the left,

because of His Grace

your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “

This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

Let's put into practice

Looking to Listen

And

“Take hold of My words with all your heart; keep My commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget My words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Proverbs 4:4-5

every time you want to

Look

away

to the

right or to the left...

Because

His Eyes are on you.
