The eyes

Posted: October 5, 2014 in psalms

Oh, her eyes, her eyes
make the stars look like they’re not shinin…

The line from the song of Bruno Mars talk about a guy who would describe a woman’s features. The eyes are indeed something, isn’t it? Whenever we want to make a good impression, we look straight into the eyes. One would know if the person is nervous, confident, or lost in translation through the eyes. I know the feeling of looking at the eyes of my crush and getting a fuzzy wuzzy feeling. I also know the feeling of watching her from a distance, as she walks and while I may sound so cheesy, I actually love seeing her.

There is also someone who watches us. The psalmist said…

Behold, the eye of the Lord
is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
that he may deliver their soul from death
and keep them alive in famine.
Psalm 33:18-19

The eyes of the Lord is constantly on us. He does not shy away, and He knows what we are doing.

He watches over us because He loves us. If we, as human beings, love watching our crush (or loved ones), it is just but a shadow of how God watches us because of His love.

He watches us because He will deliver us in His own time. It is comforting to know that God’s eyes are upon us.

His eyes sure make the stars look like they’re not shining.
