It’s tough sometimes to seek God. I mean, really look for Him in my daily activities. If you’re like me, you may just be going through the motions at times and doing the same old, same old things. As I reflect on scripture this morning I am asking God on purpose to help me see what He sees in me. I was created by God to do something. In me is a purpose that God has assigned just for me, a unique quality that makes me beautiful. Do I tend to pray by looking and listening? I mean look to God and listen to what He says in scripture? Well, no not really. Most times it’s a listing prayer. I go right to talking about my list of prayer requests. I am learning that my seeking starts with seeing. God has a better angle. His view is always better than mine. He can see farther. God doesn’t need glasses like I do to have better vision. It’s clear to me, when we look at things from God’s perspective things start to look differently in our lives. Now that’s what I call living on pitch.
I have just two words of wisdom for today:
Don’t be afraid to chase after those God honoring and inspired dreams.
Now that’s what I call living on pitch!
To See or Not To See
I attended Vision Sunday recently at my church and was excited about the New Year and having another opportunity to serve in Ministry. Speaking of vision, I got a new study Bible. I finally broke down to get a large print edition because my vision has changed. I was having a hard time seeing the words in my Bible clearly. I’m happy to purchase the new Bible but I couldn’t help to notice the small print on the the outside cover that says it’s a “Large Print” Bible edition. I opened it and it’s definitely large print on the inside. This new Bible taught me an old lesson. It’s not about the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I am not judging this book by its cover! This week I pray for clear vision. I pray for godly character to live on the inside despite what I look like on the outside. I pray for wisdom to see what God sees and accept what He has for my life. I pray God will keep me living purposefully on pitch.
