God Looks Down
The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. --- Psalms 14:2

I bet when God looks down to see how we are doing here on the earth He doesn't find too many people looking back up at Him - because we're so occupied with what we are doing. I went to pick up some lunch yesterday. While waiting in a drive thru line (it was a double drive thru) I observed the driver in every car around me checking emails, texting, talking, and even playing games on their phones as they waited to move forward in their lines. I then looked up and was captivated by the beauty of the clouds and the contrast of their shapes and white brightness against the blue background of the sky! My eyes filled with tears because I instantly became aware of God's Presence. For the moment, I felt as though I may have been the only one who realized how much we neglect giving God the admiration and appreciation He deserves for be so good to us. When I imagine God looking down on us, I want to see Him smiling the smile of a Father Whose heart is overflowing with joy in seeing His children's affection being expressed back to him. Don't you want to give God joy? Then look up at Him every day, and let Him know you are checking on Him, too, with love!
