June 17–What’cha Watchin’ for?

O my Strength, I watch for You;

You, O God, are my fortress, my loving God. 

Psalm 59:9-10

 What are you watching for? What are you looking for? An easier day? A promotion? A vacation? An encouragement? An achievement? An award? A quick answer? A plan that comes together? A cure? A new relationship? A healed–renewed relationship?  An easier time with a cantankerous family member, boss, co-worker or neighbor? An easier life? All of the above?

What we watch for depends on where our eyes are focused—physically, emotionally, mentally, relationally and spiritually. And what we watch for reflects what we expect to see and experience. 

God’s Word tells us—and His Spirit confirms it: we can watch for and expect to see and experience the Strength and Love of God as our protective, enduring, non-destructible Fortress! 

God doesn’t change—so we should know what to watch for and expect. God  is our Strength. He is our Fortress. He is our Loving God! What’cha watchin’ for?

 In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane

  1. I’m watching for the appointed time in the purpose of God! I’m amazed that we are to partner with Him to fulfill what He want to do on earth. It’s an exciting way to live!

    • Amen, Beverly! It is humbling and wonderful and beyond my comprehension–but what a beautiful privilege to be a partner with our God in sharing His grace and truth, love and hope! I just checked out your blog and saw the passion of your heart as you wrote about “the appointed time in the purpose of God!” Thank you.

  2. Hi Sylane,
    When I read the line, “What’cha watchin’ for?” Immediately God put my seven year old granddaughter Samantha on my heart…and what she is frequently watchin’ for.

    Probing me one day with a totally unexpected question, Samantha asked, “Grandma, when do you think Jesus is coming back on that white horse?” I answered her with the wisdom of a grandmother, “I don’t know, Sam.” With her bright spirit filled eyes still focused on mine she concluded, “Wouldn’t it be great if He came back on March 10th? That would be the best birthday surprise ever!”

    This conversation validates what Samantha is watchin’ for. I just didn’t realize that it is something she thinks about quite a bit! You go girl! Amen.
