I will scribble 🙂 WIth all my heart, soul, mind and strength. And I will paint – with the colours my particular journey provides. Creating washes and blending the colours with tears of equal struggle as well as joy. The canvas of my life is sitting firmly on a divine easel. A masterpiece is surely emerging – one where His glory is fully displayed.
“Wet eyes are watching you. The moist eyes of Jesus, tenderly longing for you to let go of your life and hold fast to Him. His eyes are gentle as they see you stumble and scrape your knee in sin once again. He doesn’t kick you when you’re down, but rather He carefully stabilizes you with His mercy and grace, and helps you to your feet. He is so patient when you falter, and is ever faithful to forgive you.
His eyes are smiling as they find you longing to please Him. Just as the little three-year-old child picks up a crayon and scribbles a masterpiece for his earthly father, so you scribble your very best rendition of a life honouring to your Father in heaven. And even though He might not be able to tell if it is a picture of Him or a hippo, your little scribbles of love mean everything to your God.
His eyes are also full of pride as they observe you trusting Him. He, more than anyone, knows how difficult it is to stand against the tide. He simply wants an ordinary person to trust His nature and character, and to test His perfect faithfulness. And, as Oswald Chambers has said, “If we deliberately choose to obey God, then He will tax the remotest star and the last grain of sand to assist us with all His almighty power.”
Wet eyes are watching you. The caring eyes of heaven have spent too many years burning with tears of pain over your life and mine. Let us choose today to bless God’s heart with the gift of loving Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Let’s make those wet eyes proud!”
