From my recliner...

This has been on my mind lately. Steven Curtis Chapman had a song called "The Fingerprints of God"

I can see the tears filling your eyes
And I know where they're coming from
They're coming from a heart that's broken in two
By what you don't see
The person in the mirror
Doesn't look like the magazine
Oh but when I look at you it's clear to me that
I can see the fingerprints of god
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god
Never has there been and never again
Will there be another you
Fashioned by god's hand
And perfectly planned
To be just who you are
And what he's been creating
Since the first beat of your heart
Is a living breathing priceless work of art and
Just look at you
You're a wonder in the making
Oh and god's not through no
In fact he's just getting started and

There's a whole world of life we can't see.  It's only found in a relationship with our Creator.  

Without Christ you live in either apathy or worry.  You either truly don't care or you are so worried you can't sleep.  

In my life, I look back and do see the fingerprints of God.  I see the fingerprints of God in the lives of people He is reaching out to, who just haven't acknowledged it yet.  There's many on my friends list that He has been trying to reach for years.  

I recall a book and even a video titled "I don't have enough faith to be an atheist".  I really don't.  God's done more in my life than I could ever share with you.  I can only point you in His direction.  You gotta see it for yourself.  Andrew, Peter's brother, was known for doing that.  Pointing people to Jesus.  For them to make up their own minds.  If you have rejected Christ all this time, I truly feel for you.  You may have turned your back on Him because of a circumstance of life.  But realize the truth of life isn't us always getting what we want, even from God.  Parents who always give their children everything they want raise spoiled children. Whom become adults thinking they are entitled to everything they want.  God loves us too much to give us everything we want. 

Just wanted to share this today.  Look at your own life.  I promise you, you too can see the fingerprints of God.
