At home, my husband and boys waited with eager eyes to fill me in on their day.
But here I am now, ready for my photo shoot and all the eyes are elsewhere!
Wait...two eyes are looking at me. In the terrarium beside me, our frog, Stix gazes at me with a look that clearly says, "I'm watching you.You are the lady who feeds me crickets. Any moment you may stand up and hover one of those delicious leggy creatures over my head and I am so ready!"
Psalm 33:18 says, "Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,"
As I was sitting here, I wasn't really thinking about eyes being on me, watching my every move, but there they were, just beside me.
God watches me too. I need to remember that, in all I say and do. Did I speak an unkind word? Did I let my attitude grow sour? Am I as diligent as I should be?
And how are my own eyes? Do others looking in them see Christ?
Matthew 6:22 reminds us, "“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light."
What do others see when they look in your eyes? Do they see defeat? Sorrow? Or do they see the reflection of the Savior who came to save us and walks with us daily.
