See (Five Minute Friday)

Five Minute Friday

So glad to be joining in Five Minute Friday again this week.  It's pretty simple if you would like to join.  Just write for 5 minutes.  Don't worry about messing up.  Life is messy after all, so shouldn't our writing be too?  Anyway, it's lots of fun. Just click on the button above to join in.  Set a timer and let the words flow!  Here I go.....

I thank God for conviction.  It is difficult. It is ugly. It hurts.  But, Oh!  It is so awesome.  God sees me.  He knows me.  And sometimes I think I am better than what I am.  I get on my high horse. I show my authority.  I lose myself in sin.  Anger, gossip, gluttony.  I get caught up in things like that, but God sees me and he opens my eyes up to what I’ve become, the road I’m heading down. He gives me the opportunity to stop dead in my tracks and get right.  Get right with him and what he expects out of me.

Thank you God for seeing the real me.  Often I don’t. I get caught up in the going ons, the ins and outs of life that I slip and forget that you have plans for me.  Those plans include doing things that bring you honor and glory and I thank you for showing me that I do things that just don’t. I am thankful for second chances to make it right with you. 

Do you see?  Do you see what God is showing you?  He is showing you a better way. A much better way.  You won’t be perfect, but you will be better because of him.  He will give you the eyes to see what he sees.
