What do you notice when you go somewhere you’ve never been before?
- Natural beauty?
- Something else?
What about when you meet someone you’ve never met before? What do you notice?
We all notice different things. Ask five eye-witnesses what they saw at an accident site and they’ll give you five different descriptions. For better or worse, we tend to see people and things through our own unique filters. We notice things that other people gloss over, but we also overlook things that other people think are obvious. We need to ask God to help us see people and events the way He sees them:
- He sees the sparrow
- He knows how many hairs are on your head
- He understands what it’s like to be deserted and alone
- He feels your sorrow
Nothing is ever a surprise to God. He notices everything.
Those who’d like to participate in Five Minute Friday will write for five minutes on the topic of the week, post it on their own blog and link up the post on Kate’s blog (via the InLinkz button at the bottom of the post).
This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
