I am sure you are already thinking what in the world does this have to do with God's eyes. Here it is. When I got all of my things together for church Sunday morning, I couldn't remember if I had gotten my makeup. When I realized I might have forgotten it (around 11:00 p.m) I told Blaine that I hoped I had not forgotten my makeup because I surely could not go to Sunday morning church without it. Of course he thought that was absurd, but not me. Fortunately I only forgot half of it. Eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, and brow pencil. I was not crazy about half of a made up face. This morning more than usual, I had a more intense longing to hear from God, and just worship him, so I knew it would really be no big deal. I went and you know what? nobody noticed! No one came up and said" You know you forgot your eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner, and eyebrow pencil" Not a single person! Isn't it funny just the smallest things that Satan will try to use to get our focus from where it should be!
Please forgive the rambling here! It was refreshing worship. Different from our church here, but exactly what I needed for today. The worship songs were just that for me, WORSHIP. As I was driving home, and thinking back on how easily I could have been silly and stayed home, and I do mean SILLY! God brought theses words,HIS words to mind.
"for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
I Samuel 16:7b
I think God is has more than once this year spoken to me about FOCUS. My focus needs to be on HIM.
He is not at all interested in my makeup, whether my house is the most stylish, my clothes, etc. He is interested in my heart. Hope you have a blessed week. Striving to stay focused.
