Looking Out My Window

By Ken L. Birks

Looking out my window I see the wonders of God in the skies.
I see the sunrise with the expectations of a new day as it begins to rise.
What is it that this day will bring that will wrap me in the arms of His love?
As the sun rises, my eyes are blinded by its brightness above.
In the eternal realm, my eyes rise to gaze upon His beauty, evident to all.
I await new revelation and insight from the awakening of a new day.

Looking out my window, I feel the warmth of the sun, so bright.
I see squirrels playing joyfully with no thought or care of fright.
I see the hand of God in the beauty of His created ones.
They run and play with no concern as the Father cares for them.
He cares for them as He does for the sparrows who fly so freely in flight.
I sense the faithfulness of a God who cares and delights in us.
Even more than the squirrels who play so joyfully, He delights.

Looking out my window I see sadness on the faces of those who pass by.
I see the homeless person who is wondering where he will sleep tonight.
As the sun begins to fade, it gives way as darkness and cold come with a bite.
I pray, He who is the provider of all, supplies what's needed as the sun fades away.
As He provides for the birds of the air and the squirrels who play so freely, so I pray.

Looking out my window I see young mothers with their children joyfully strolling by.
They rejoice in the miracles that have come forth as they sing a lullaby.
Casting their gaze upon their beauty, their hearts are filled with wonder.
While others slumber, they see God's faithfulness filling their cup with gratefulness.
They take note of the beauty and wonder of God that's seen by all who take notice.

Looking out my window, I see stray cats on my porch basking in the sunlight.
As they sleep contentedly, I notice they’re well fed though they have no home.
I then realize the neighborhood is their home as they disappear into the night.
I give thanks to the Father who seems to care for the insignificance of a stray cat.
I'm aware of how much more valuable and significant I am in His sight.

Looking out my window, my heart is filled with gratitude, praise and amazement.
I see the Father’s handiwork in all that He has made for our enjoyment.
He continually looks with care and concern over all that He has conceived.
Faith arises in my heart as His love washes over me with all that He has achieved.
Wrapped in the arms of His tender love and care, I enjoy the moment as I breathe.

Scripture references: Matthew 6:24-34, Psalm 17:8, Romans 1:20, Ps 107:8-9, Job 11:7-12.
