  • Eyes On You

    By Brother Steve | November 12, 2012

    Proverbs 5:21 - For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.

    I find technology not only fascinating, but also very helpful. They say computers make our lives easier. That is true, however, sometimes they push an individual to do more than is possible.

    I use remote desktop quite a bit. Remote desktop is simply controlling a computer from another computer at another location. Using remote desktop has helped me out many times and has given me the status of being a "power user."

    Recently, I gained access to my home computer from another computer that was located in a distant town. I wanted to test an idea. Could I see my family sitting in the living room using the webcam that was mounted on the top of the display screen? Little bit of covert operation going on.

    I knew it was possible to do it, I just wanted to check it out. I gained access to my home computer and sure enough, I could see three of my girls in the living room. The neat thing about it was they could not see me because the monitor was turned off.

    I watched them with enjoyment as I saw them get into the special place I keep their journals, the books I write notes to them. If you are not familiar with these journals, I encourage you to read the post Notes From Daddy in the Everyday Life section of brothersteve.org. I just added a journal for Melanie. I also added some special cards in the back of the books. The girls did not realize I had written notes to them several days ago. I could not hear what they were saying, but I could see the excitement and joy on their faces.

    The girls so far love to read these notes in their journals. I could see Stevanie reading the note I wrote to Melanie since she cannot read at this point. I watched them look through the ten special cards that are a brand new addition to their journals. The cards list special things they can do with me all by themselves. I watched each of the girls read their notes. I saw their faces light up. I saw their excitement. It almost made me cry knowing that they appreciated what I wrote to them and it gave them joy.

    I thought for a moment. You know, that is the way God is with us. He sees us wherever we are and whatever we do. We cannot see Him. He sees us when we read our Bible, His love letter to us, His special notes to us, written especially for us. I am sure He admires our willingness to read what He has for us. He see the joy in our hearts when He blesses us with His goodness. Sometimes we might forget He is ever watching us or we are unaware for some reason He is always watching us. I am sure His heart is warmed and joyful when He sees our reaction when we are blessed by His hand, when we acknowledge his goodness.
