Look and Listen


Romans 1:18-20

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Do you see Him?  Do you hear Him?

For so long I did not see or hear.  I was too busy managing my own life, arranging my days, planning my tomorrows.

But now, I stop.  And He speaks truths to me that I did not know.  I may have heard- I may have nodded when other people spoke them.

But now they are mine.  I grasp them.  I cling desperately- I come needing, wanting, hungry.  Knowing I am not enough.

And He talks to me- whispers His truth.  And I fill up with Him.  My heart overflows with thankful worship.  I feel so loved, nurtured, cared for- my God is here.

He is with me, He is all around me. I will worship Him today.  With my mouth I will sing Praises.  I will proclaim His Name.

I will tell others of His love- I will seek to be love and light in this dark world- through the light of Jesus shining in me.  He has removed the blinders and now I see.  It is not me.  I am free.

He makes me all that I am- any good- any beauty- any worth- poured out by God. I am a cracked vessel.

Make me your instrument today- useful in your hand.
