My sister-in-law sent me these pics a couple of days ago.
She caught Natalie and David each taking a peek at my brother while he mowed their front lawn.
They love their daddy so much, and regardless of how many toys were in the living room at that moment,
their daddy was catching their eye.
I want to live a life just like this.
I want God, my Heavenly Father, to catch my eye and pull me away from all the distractions of this world.
I want to be drawn toward Him just because of who He is.
This world is loud.
This world is full.
This world is busy.
But we have a Father just outside the window who is calling,
“Come, Follow Me.”
Summertime is definitely a time for making fun memories with friends and family.
It’s a time for reading good books and enjoying visits on the porch.
But I never want to get so busy that I forget who gives this life its meaning.
I never want to wake up unaware of Him who loves me most.
I never want to fall to sleep without whispering “thank you” for another day of life.
I never want to walk through a day without finding myself “drawn to the window” just to watch God work……………….
creating sunrises and sunsets and thunderstorms and rainbows.
Your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.
My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
I hope God catches your eye today and draws you to the window!
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
