HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW SO I KNOW HE’S WATCHING ME………..my New Years post for God.
After working another 12 night shift my husband was not awake with me to welcome in the New Year; he didn’t miss much though, watching Mr. Bean on T.V. is our traditional New Years party…alone…just us two….no one else to speak of but 3 dogs 6 cats and 4 ducks. Normally chickens would be in the equation but my little batch last year all turned out to be roosters…now I know why people butcher those heartless things without so much as shedding a tear. THEY ARE NASTY! There are some people fortunate enough to end up with a roo that is sugar sweet and loveable…I was not among the fortunate.
12 midnight came, I looked at the massive snoring farting machine heap on the couch, I raised my brows and considered waking it but then quickly came to my senses. Then I looked up and realized I had never JUST acknowledged God before on such a memorable night. It is He after all that gives us breathe, He allows us to breathe, even those who don’t believe!
There I was alone (for all intense purposes) just looking up and never had I felt I’d spent a more cherished moment then the one I spent right there and then with God. I was starting this New Year with The One who has already given me every year. I felt his presence as I sat and did nothing more than keep him in my mind. I was suddenly sad for all the years I had not thought to spend the New Year with Him but at the same time, I was so very grateful that it was happening now.
Revelation 3,20...BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
