The Witness

One of my favorite past times is people watching. It has occurred to me that other people like to people watch as well, and sometimes they watch me! That changes everything, suddenly people watching isn't that fun anymore.  It was recently pointed out to me that I was being "watched" in several different situations, and God simply reminded me to remember two things. First, I am always to be His Witness, and what people see does not necessarily match up with what is happening. Perception is not reality.
I read this morning in Isaiah 43:10, "You are my witnesses, declares the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen,  So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me."
Every morning for months now God has reminded me to focus on Him. Life is about Him, keep my eyes on Him. The only way for me to be a witness for Him is to focus on Him. If my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my entire life is focused on Him, and only Him, then I will reflect Him. It will be okay that people are watching me. And, there will be times when assumptions are made and they will be wrong, but Jesus always sets things right.  There will be times when perceptions do not match reality, but Jesus it my Defender, I don't have to deal with it, He will. I just have to focus on my Savior and the calling He has for me, that all.
Jesus, Say That Again, You have chosen me to be a witness for You. You have asked me to focus on You. You have asked me to love you, to be in relationship with You. Thank you for inviting me!
