Eyes to See the Almighty

This Saturday was a lazy Saturday morning, meaning that I got to sleep in until 7:45. I was nursing sweet Hannah while sitting in my bed, when Toria and Juju joined us in bed. Hannah finished nursing and was sitting up on my lap, hugs and strokes being lavished upon her by her older sisters. Her gaze began to drift to the window that sits above our bed until she was fixed on the fresh sunlight pouring in the room.

I was amused, watching her stare into the open space, when Toria spoke up.

"Mama, she's looking at God."

"Really?" I asked her.

"Yeah, Mama. Can't you see Him? She's looking at God."

Mercy, what do those little eyes see? What do those little ears hear? How precious and innocent is that tiny soul, that she still stares off in the distance looking unto her Creator.

Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
that the mountains would tremble before you!
As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil,
come down to make your name known to your enemies
and cause the nations to quake before you!
For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
you came down, and the mountains trembled before you.
Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait on him.

Today, Almighty Father, You made Your name known in this simple house, through the eyes of Your babe and the mouth of Your daughter. I beseech You Father, never let that passion be quenched in the hearts of Your children. Raise up these girls to always see You, forever hear Your voice, forever follow You in obedience, that You would use them to make Your Name known among the nations, even among Your enemies. Praise You Jesus for this precious reminder this morning.

  1. That is so beautiful, Shauna. My girls say things like that from time to time, and it just FLOORS me. Maybe that's what Jesus meant when He said we should have faith like a child. I think maybe we're missing something big.... Love you to bits! xo
