Playdates with God: The Eyes of the Heart




This morning, I was up before sunrise for a run. The air was cool and a dewy mist settled over the low places, cloaking the trees and surrounding fields in white. I listened to songs of unseen birds as I ran, the world awakening before me. A spotted fawn in a foggy meadow stared at me with liquid eyes. As the deer startled away into a nearby wood, I marveled at the secrets the daylight keeps.

If I overlook these visible things, how much harder to remain aware of the unseen spiritual world?

Will you join me for the rest of this reflection over at The High Calling? This week we’re discussing the theme Imagination.

Every Monday I share one of my Playdates with God. I would love to hear about yours. It can be anything: outside, quiet time. Maybe it’s solitary. Maybe it’s loud and crowded. Just find God and know joy. Click on the button below to add your link. I try to visit a few of your stories every week, so if you are a new visitor, be sure to let me know in the comments so I can welcome you. Grab my button at the bottom of the page and join us.

    Good point, Laura! We must keep our eyes peeled for the wonder and, might I add, “humor” in God’s world. Humor was an aspect I studied about in my quiet time today. God truly does many humorous things when He answers my prayers, so I want to keep my eyes peeled for those often “unseen” … revelations all around me. Thanks for the linkup, my friend!
