Our Father’s Eyes

I just spent the loveliest day with many beautiful daughters of God at a Spaghetti for the Souls event listening to the Godly wisdom of Ellie Lofaro and Kathy Troccoli speak of the faith, hope and love of God. What a special time it was. Toward the end of the event I was sitting with a wonderful group of women and we were discussing the creative centerpieces made of different shaped pasta discovering some shaped like candles, holly and stars for the holiday season just pasted. As we were examining them we noticed one candle shape was broken and one of the ladies tossed it back into the sea of pasta and I said “Oh don’t throw away the broken one.” We all laughed because we were only talking about pasta but of course you know me I can find the spiritual in the most ordinary everyday things. I thought the world is like that, They are so inclined to so quickly throw away anything or anyone that is broken but not so with our loving heavenly Father. When He looks at us He sees us whole not broken. He sees what we will be not what we are in the moment. 1 John 3:2&3 Beloved, now we are children of God and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. Now that sounds like wholeness to me.

I dare say we have all been broken at one time or another. I’m so glad God does not toss me out as a hopeless case. I’m so glad He sees me as I will be. Let’s see through Our Father’s Eyes.

Thankyou Father for teaching me through the most ordinary things. I so need it every day. ;)

    Oh Beth, I didn’t mean by my comment that you had to sit down and write immediately! :-) But I’m so glad you did because we are all so broken. Thank you Father that you didn’t throw us away as soon as we didn’t work right. So often we forget how you lovingly put us back together again so we can still work for you . . . until the next time we break apart.

    Oh Alona I only sit down and write when the Lord downloads something for me to write and that just happened to be this morning. I just never know when He is going to do that but I have to write it down quickly before it is lost forever. lol It was a good conversation. I just love how He uses such ordinary things to teach me. ;)

    Wonderful words Beth! I saw a sign in front of a church today, on my way to Rochester, and it said:
    “See Jesus in every face you see today!” I saw LOTS of “Jesus Faces” yesterday, didn’t you!!??? Keep up the great work! Blessings for a wonderful week ahead!

    Not only does the Lord not throw broken ones aside, He provides for our healing and renewal. Saturday was such a day; lovely setting, perfect timing for after Christmas crash and winter doldrums. Bless your efforts and for taking the time to write.

    Thank you Joyce, I am so glad God provided you with healing and renewal through Spaghetti For the Soul. Those women blessed my soul as well. I’m so glad Denise and her team listened to the Lord and brought it to the ladies in our area. It is always such and honor and privilege to serve God in that way. ;)

    Saturday was a wonderful time of spiritual nourishment and renewal. It is awesome that God loves us in our brokeness and compassionately fixes us, but He doesn’t stop there. He then gives us opportunites to love, support and enourage others who are going through seasons of brokeness. “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2Cor. 1:3, 4.

    Yes Debbie you are so right. That is the family of God. We reflect our Father when we comfort others who are going through something that we have. Who better understands than one who has passed that way before. I’m so glad that if I cannot find one that understands Jesus understands all that we go through because He certainly has passed all those way before. What an awesome God we serve and His mercies are new every morning. I’m so thankful for that because I need new mercy every single day. Thanks for sharing Debbie. What a heart for God you have. ;)
