Eyes to See the God Invisible

“I want to be a cherub, all eye looking back. To be like the cherubim, with ‘eyes all over their bodies, including their hands, their backs, and their wings’ (Ezekiel 10:12). To be Moses, ‘who kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisble’ (Hebrews 11:27). That is what makes us persevere through life; to see Him who is invisible! It is my prayer with the last crickets of summer: O Lord, open the eyes of my heart, the eyes of my hands, the eyes of  my mouth, the eyes of my feet. I long to live all eye” (One Thousand Gifts, Ann Voskamp, p.115).

Photo of June Full Moon by Kim Andrist

My friend Kim, depending on her strength, faithfully runs outside to laso the moon with her camera every month when it is full bodied. She never seems to weary of this ritual. Her pictures are amazing. They remind me that this lunar rock perfectly placed for our night view is nothing less than the promise of a God who knows just what we need. We don’t need three moons– just one. And perhaps it is best that for now, He is a God invisible rather than seen so that we will seek Him. Whether in the beauty of a summer moon, fireworks, ocean breeze, or mountains grandeur, we are assured that He is here.

Thank you for your photos my friend.

Much grace,
