Skywatch Friday Thoughts and More

When The Beatles released this song in 1967, I don't know if any of us thought we would actually live to be 64.  On Saturday, November 20, 2010, I will reach that milestone.  I thought it only appropriate to play the song for the ocassion.

My drive to and from work each day affords me several opportunities to photograph the sky without the distractions of road signs, fences, power lines, buildings, etc.  I have been known to be a few minutes late for work, due to a stunning sunrise.  That unobstructed view of the sky reminded me that God always has an unobstructed view of our hearts and minds.  We can do things, think things, and imagine things that we keep hidden from those who know us.  We can hide nothing from our Creator.  He created us and gave us a free will to choose our path in this life.  God has a plan for each of us and each morning we get to choose whether or not we are going to yield to His will, or go our own way.  We may fool those around us into thinking that we are rightly motivated by our actions, but God has a clear unobstructed view of our hearts.  What does He see when he looks at yours.  Mine is often an embarrassment to me and to my Savior. "Create in me a clean heart, oh God, that I might not sin against you." This was the prayer of David, the psalmist.  I would do well to start each day with this request.
My inspirational song this week comes from Jeremy Camp.  My life would be much better if I would only learn to "Walk By Faith." Enjoy.
