LIVE LIFE FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE

There is much to be said for spending time alone…….personally I like it and I treasure it.  When I am alone I know it is just me and my Savior.  And I reflect and I am intentional and I pray and cry and worship.

Someone once said the real measure of a person’s character is what they do when no one is looking.  When we walk with JESUS however, HE is looking.  HE sees. And HE knows us to our core.

JESUS is right over your shoulder…….do you know that Christian?  HE walks alongside you, before and  behind you and sympathizes with all your needs, hurts and struggles.  HE is always with you!

ISAIAH 43: 2  “WHEN YOU GO THROUGH DEEP WATERS, I WILL BE WITH YOU.”

And let’s remember this one promise and embrace it with whole heart…….

MATTHEW 28: 20  “AND BEHOLD, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, TO THE END OF THE AGE.”

Did you catch that powerful word?  JESUS said HE is with us always!  Always now and always forever!

So why do we, as Christians in the world, live as if HE isn’t there?  Why do we think somethings we do or say aren’t seen by HIM? 

LET US LIVE FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE……..THAT ONE IS JESUS!

But you say, my life is so boring, so daily, why would the GOD of the universe care about me?  Remember this:

LUKE 16: 10  “WHOEVER CAN BE TRUSTED WITH VERY LITTLE CAN ALSO BE TRUSTED WITH MUCH, AND WHOEVER IS DISHONEST WITH VERY LITTLE WILL ALSO BE DISHONEST WITH MUCH.”

So our audience of ONE, sees how we handle even the little we have been given.  It is a true measure of where we are in our faith. It’s the little daily things HE sees and notices how we are caring about them.  Are we going through the motions or are we doing them with gratitude and worship?

Aren’t there so many days that are just plain ordinary?   In my house we are on a daily schedule due to a puppy we got last year.  She keeps us on schedule when we feed her, take her out etc.  There are specific times when we have to do things with her.  But so often, oh how I have seen a gorgeous sunrise or night sky filled with stars!

HOW DO WE FIND THE EXTRAORDINARY IN THE ORDINARY?

Let’s remember that we have an extraordinary GOD who gives us life and breath each day.  Honestly, do you realize it is a miracle that HE woke you up this morning?

ECCLESIASTES 12: 1  “REMEMBER YOUR CREATOR IN THE DAYS OF YOUR YOUTH, BEFORE THE DIFFICULT DAYS COME.”

Because we remember HIM in our difficulties, when we go to HIM on our knees, but what about all the other days and times that go smoothly?  Let’s be intentional about vertical thinking!  Let’s keep a continuous posture of conversation and prayer with HIM……..because HE wants to be with us!

Yes, HE is there, right there in the everyday, ordinary with us…….HE is with us. HE watches and listens and guides and holds us.  HE is our audience of ONE.  A special ONE too because……

HE LOVES US WITH A LOVE THAT IS BEYOND ANYTHING WE KNOW HERE.

And because of HIS amazing love, HE is your audience every day of your life.  Live like HE is there with you.  Loving you like a parent loves and looks after their child.  Be humbled by this, be changed by this fact, be thankful, be you, the you that GOD made you to be, faults and all.  But just know you are never without HIM, without HIS immeasurable love and great watchful care whether you are doing the small things or big things in life.  HE IS OUR AUDIENCE OF ONE.

COLOSSIANS 3:17  “AND WHATEVER YOU DO, IN WORD OR DEED, DO EVERYTHING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, GIVING THANKS TO GOD THE FATHER THROUGH HIM.”

 

AND MAY WE REMEMBER TODAY THOSE WHO HAVE DIED IN SERVICE FOR OUR COUNTRY.

  1. Thanks again for these words of wisdom. I have lived alone for the past 7 years, and you talk about BORING! WOW! But all I need to do is sit down with the WORD and I feel refreshed. I am 81 years old, and I thank God every morning when I wake up for another day. Praise His Name!

    1. Oh if I only lived close by I would come and visit! YES the LORD helps us in our feeling alone. But they are just that……feelings. HE truly is always WITH us and what a joy that is. HE cares for us daily. Keep writing cause HE will meet you there as well. And it is good for your soul too! Enjoying your posts!

  2. “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come” – Such truth! Because we need to be building a firm foundation with Him. And because of the rest of that verse: ” And the years draw near when you say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’” AND because of the verse you mentioned in Luke 16.10! Our days will be so much brighter when we live them for God.
