Still believe Me?

Just a few more quotes that spoke to me...
"Open your eyes now. It's time to see Me if you still believe Me."
- 'Open Your Eyes', Andrew Belle

"Look into My eyes and hear what I'm not saying, for My eyes speak louder than My voice ever will."
- Unknown

"I see my fated stars in Your eyes. They melt me like the sun does snow."
- Unknown


Open Your Eyes

"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law."
- Psalm 119:18

"I want so much to open your eyes,
Cos' I need you to look into Mine."
- Open Your Eyes, Snow Patrol 

I feel like I am being told to open my eyes again. Somehow I have allowed myself to slumber and I've fallen asleep to His love. A friend and I once wanted to put on a concert for young people and call it "Awakening". We thought so many of us had fallen asleep. So many of us had become too content. Too satisified. And here I am a walking hypocrite. Not moving forward....maybe in fact going backwards. 

But God is dying for me to look at Him. You know the feeling when someone is staring at you? It's uncomfortable. Almost too intrusive. I can feel His eyes on me, urging me to make eye contact. I have a feeling that there will be something to learn from looking into His eyes. I know that I will most probably find hope and peace and answers.

But at the same time I'm not sure if I want to know. I'm scared of confronting God. I know that He's disappointed with how I've treated Him lately. 
I think maybe I just need to man up.

"Look into My eyes and you will see what your love
is doing to Me."

Lately I've also been feeling like my soul has no soul. I don't really know how to explain it, but I feel abit dead. Like a walking zombie. I want to fall back in love with my Creator, but my passion is gone, and my soul is not singing for Him. This was when I was reminded of this well known english proverb:- "The eyes are the window to the soul." 
And this has brought me full circle.

Confrontation. I could not think of anything that scares me more.

"Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through
each other's eyes for an instant?"
- Henry David Thoreau


The Silver Lining

I am learning the lesson well and good of trusting in God. It seems that with every sideways glance I have yet another thing to hang my mouth open in wonder. 'Can it be so?'

Just the other day I was on a walk with a friend, and I was blabbing on about all my so called "doubts and concerns". But I looked over my shoulder and there was a perfectly shaped rainbow. It was one of those ones that arched across the whole sky...one of those ones that takes your breath away. And I was reminded of our promise that we were given.
A promise to be looked after.
A promise that we will no longer be punished.
A promise of our enemies being overthrown.
A promise that with every cloud comes a rainbow.

I didn't really believe in the idea that every cloud has a silver lining.
"Was I decieved, or did that sable cloud
Turn forth her silver lining on the night?"
- 'Bleak House', Charles Dickens
Am I decieved? Or can it be so?
I swear I'll know your face in the crowd
And I'll hear your voice so loud
When you're whispering,

"Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger.
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another."
- "Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape"
