Eyes Open to See {Something to Think About}

You hold your hand up high, God, but they don’t see it.
Open their eyes to what you do,
to see your zealous love for your people.
Isaiah 26:11 The Message
Without eyes open to see,
we miss God’s amazing works and ways.
                                               
I’m honored to be hosting The Sunday Community this week for my friend Deidra Riggs at Jumping Tandem! Please join me in linking up below with a picture, Scripture, and if you choose, a few words of inspiration.

All are welcome, so please add The Sunday Community button (found here) to your post so others know where to find us. Oh, and if you’re new to The Sunday Community, you can find more information on Deidra’s blog Jumping Tandem.

Thanks for joining me here! Next week, we’ll be back at Deidra’s.

In Christ,
Laura

Also linking with Fresh Brewed Sundays and Spiritual Sundays.

  7. Laura, Thanks for hosting this week! I'm looking forward to coming back and reading your blog. I needed to be reminded this morning of what I read in your profile - trusting God in all areas of my life and that nothing is impossible with Him. That's been His message these last few days. Nothing new but I'm thankful He is gracious to speak His truths when we need them. Pam from thet2women.com

  9. Is there a linky Link? I can't find it. Or are we to use the comments for linking?

    Your post reminds me of Margaret Feinberg's new book, Wonderstruck. Just watch - and we will see what God is showing us. Be in wonder. Thanks.

    1. Hi Janis,
      It should be just above the comments & under the link-up pictures.
      Thanks for visiting! I keep hearing about the book Wonderstruck. I think I may be adding it to my very long to-read list.
      Happy New Year!
