We had a fabulous view from our balcony. Since we were so high up, we could look out and see miles of beach expanding both ways. Below us was the hotel's property, which included two beautiful pools, colorful umbrellas with chairs, and lovely landscaping by the cabanna. We also could see lots and lots of people. They weren't aware of us watching them, and they really enjoyed the beach and all it had to offer. From very early in the morning to nighttime, there was always someone walking on the beach or swimming. Everyone was busy doing their own thing.
He loves us so much that His Son, Jesus, offered His life on the cross, giving us the free gift of salvation. Not because we deserve this. But because He wants us to be able to spend eternity with Him. Simply by accepting Him as Lord and Savior, confessing your need of Him in your life, and making Him Lord of your life is all that you need to do. No one is perfect. Ecclesiastes 7:20 tells us "There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins." But we are forgiven, because God is merciful and just. He does discipline His children, because he hates sin. But when we turn to Him for deliverance, He promises to help us. His eyes are always on us.
So the next time you are busy doing your own thing, remember that you are being watched. By a loving, merciful and just God who loves you more than you realize!!
