ok, that could be creepy coming from someone we don't know. or even just thinking that someone is watching us. but i assure you this is a good thing. this is something that i have always known. but with every season of life we go through, there is always a different meaning. we are in an amazing bible study called, "a journey home". we started it 5 weeks ago. i love it. i love the people in our group. more importantly, i love what God is doing in my heart.
we all received an envelope yesterday before this short movie clip we watched. the narrator told us to pretend this was us. the video was a flashback of a little boy in his family's station wagon. it was summertime, the windows were down, and warm breeze going through his fingers and hair. we were to relax, to let the weight of our fears slip out of our hands. the little boy raised his arms and opened up his hands as to release everything in his life that was weighing him down. and next to him was an envelope. that's when we were to open ours. i opened mine up and it said, "I'm watching you, because I love you so much." (as taken from psalm 33:18 which says: "the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love")
i sat there and wanted to cry. it's exactly what God wanted me to know at that very moment. it spoke right to my heart. no matter what i've been through and what i continue to go through, God will be right there. right by my side. right there every step of the way to assure me that everything will be okay. which made me think of jeremiah 29:11--"i know that plans that i have for you--plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." it somehow brought new meaning to my past, present and future. i am so thankful. thankful for everything in my life. my past, my present, and my future.
i decided last night that i was going to tape this to my mirror in my bathroom. for a daily reminder that God is always there, because he loves us so much.
"I am watching you, because I love you so much." let Him in and let Him take control. it feels so good.
