I just stumbled upon a new hobby, inspired by a product I saw in an eclectic shop. Framed photos of objects that resemble letters of the alphabet are strung together at the customer’s choice to spell a word or sentence. Way cool! I figured I could take my own pictures and come up with some creations. Now I’m obsessed--to the point of embarrassing my daughter. “Oh, no, Mom, not here! There are too many people around!”Did that stop me? Not at all. It’s too much fun!
Has one of your friends ever purchased a new car—a model that you weren’t familiar with—and right thereafter you see oodles of them on the highway? Why is that? Because now you’ve been “introduced” to the car, so you recognize it. You may even look for it. That’s the way it is with this hobby I’ve been introduced to. I can’t stop looking at objects and recognizing letters! A ladder resembles the letter “A,” a stick pin looks like an “i,” and a street sign makes a great “T.”
It works that way with God. If you’ve been “introduced” to Him, you will recognize Him in your everyday life—at home, at work, at play. You may even look for Him. That’s the premise of my upcoming devotion series iSights. Look for it to hit the shelves—or your iPad—in the near future. Meanwhile, keep a look out for Him.
