God Looking In

"When we sing, when we pray, when we praise when we sing, He blesses again, and again...it's just God looking in". Aren't you glad He chooses to "look in" on what’s happening in our days as we journey towards Heaven?

Years ago I was in a beautiful church in Corpus Christi, TX...Sunday morning. It was a gorgeous day. In pastor's opening comments he said, "God, it's so obvious that You're looking in on us today.” Just as he said that, my eyes were drawn to a skylight just over the platform area…sunshine was pouring in, and the thought came to me that He IS looking in, and is that evermore something to celebrate?

Trusting Him in the New Year

This year of 2017 is still rather new.  At least for me it is.  I haven’t walked slowly since we entered this great year.

May I never forget that my days were planned for me before one of them came to be…they were planned…my part is to be obedient.
