Most of my posts come out of my devotional times. Today's post is a little different. It comes from my time working out in the garden. When we bought our house we inherited a water fountain. And to be honest, I love it! It is old, cracked, it leaks, even replacing the motor in it. I have to clean out the filter every other day to keep it functioning at full flow. But I cannot express the joy I have listening to it babble on an on throughout the day.
As I look at it, and hear it, I see beauty.
So it was right at the moment that I had my hand in the dark hole, grabbing at a handful of gunk in the filter that I felt God say to me; I see you as you see this fountain. You need me to come to you daily and fill you, there is gunk in your heart and life that I despise, you need me to clean out; but when I see you hear you; I see beauty. I felt so much love and joy from my heavenly Father in that simple moment, I had to share this truth with you all. Because He feels this way about each of us-we are His created. It is beauty radiating when He sees and hears us. Are we high maintenance? YES! But we bring Him joy nonetheless. As you journey through your days remember that when God hears and sees you; it is joy He feels, even with the cracks and gunk. Let Him in and do what He needs to do only good things can come from letting the creator have His way.
