Eye-Catchers

Your eyes light up at the sight of us.
Your ears perk up at the mention of our name.
We stop heavenly traffic when we pass you by, God.

We are Eye-Catchers.

By no means is the universe framed around us, for “from Him and through Him and to Him are all things” (Romans 11:36). The glory of God cannot be emphasized enough. But somehow, women, we have missed the heartbeat of it all. Somewhere along the way we have missed the absolute devotion and adoration God has for his creation, and specifically, for his daughters. For us.

It is apparent in our slumped shoulders, our self-deprecating words, our downcast eyes.
Also in the woman with a lofty gaze, an aire of pride and self-satisfaction. She, too, has missed it.

When the Maker of the Universe, Keeper of the Stars [Isaiah 40:26] calls you by name, it humbles you and sinks you to the depths of the earth in wonder, joy, and amazement.

Sit there for awhile.

It is true.

You are an Eye-Catcher.

You are “the apple of His eye” [Zechariah 2:8].

This month, we launch Sky City as a community resource for life-exchange, truth, healing, and enjoyment. And if we are to advance together as fully alive women of Christ, we have to start here. If we don’t believe — no, if we aren’t convinced down to our very marrow — that we are loved, that we are valued, precious, and uniquely treasured by God, we will never be women bursting with life. Apart from this, all human efforts will be lost on us, lost on the One who doesn’t know that she puts a Twinkle in the Eye of God.

Point to Ponder: Have we lost the sparkle in our eyes that comes from seeing His?

Isaiah 40:26-31, Psalm 8, Psalm 139

    I’m ready to start- here and now- to advance with you women as fully alive in Christ. Therefore, I proclaim to believe what I still can’t fully comprehend- I AM AN EYE-CATCHER! And I will pray this week that God would allow me to believe this and “be convinced down to [my] very marrow” of it!

    thank you katherine… i know you’re in. who else is in?

    This hits so close to home — struggling with low self-esteem and confidence has been the description of life until a few years ago. I look back at how much I relied on others to determine my worth — the attention of a guy, the praise from friends, my status at work — all these things would give me the foundation of self-worth. When God showed up and I began to allow him to heal me, I became mortified at how my attitude had been a slap in his face. He created me — he created you — he doesn’t create that which he doesn’t love and isn’t good. He began to show me how to find confidence and worth in him. It wasn’t an overnight journey, but the process was so important and worth it. For anyone who hasn’t read it, the book “Do You Think I’m Beautiful?” is a great book for anyone struggling with this. When you take time to sit back and meditate on all that God created — the land, the water, the animals, the universe — and to think that he created me too. Little me with all my imperfections and quirks and insecurities; he did it with a specific intention and purpose in mind! And being on this earth means that he isn’t through with our process. He wants to reveal more of himself and his plan for us. Don’t for a second forget that not only are we the apple of his eye, also “He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing” (Zephaniah 3:17)!
