He Sees You & Waffle Tacos

1 Samuel 16:7 (nirv)

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider how handsome or tall he is. I have not chosen him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outside of a person. But the Lord looks at what is in the heart.”

Read

Physical appearance can definitely lead to a lot of quick judgements, but I think there’s another aspect of this verse we need to consider; actions.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made a judgement about someone based on something I saw them do. The woman screaming in traffic must be a psycho, the mom allowing her child to scream her face off at the restaurant must be selfish, the neighbor having an affair must be a total slut.

When I read this verse, God revealed to me that He not only sees past our physical appearances, He also sees past our actions. He sees the emotions that are attached to each one. He sees our hearts. He’s able to separate the sin from the sinner. While I’m not saying that God supports our sins, I know that He sees deeper than them.

When I began living with this belief, I started to feel freedom from shame. Because if I’m honest with myself and all of you, my behaviors don’t very often reflect my heart. I use anger to mask sadness, bitterness to cover up embarrassment, and I hide fear underneath sarcasm.

There are days that I question how God could possibly love me with the way I’ve been acting. This verse helped me to understand a little more; He sees me for who I really am. Knowing that truth has given me the freedom to start the journey of changing my behaviors – because I’m already totally known and completely loved. So are you.

With continued faith and time spent with Jesus, we can learn to allow more of our hearts to show through. But in the mean time, we can rest in knowing that God looks past the things that the world uses to make judgements. I hope you can rest in that truth today, friend.

Write

While God already knows our hearts, often times, we don’t. The first step in seeing ourselves how God sees us is to start the process of peeling back the layers that cover our hearts. What emotions typically manifest themselves in a negative way? An example of this would be having the desire to spend more time with your husband, but displaying anger over the inability to do so. What about feelings that manifest themselves in a positive way when maybe they shouldn’t? An example of this would be to overcommit to volunteering at school or in your community to avoid spending time at home with your hard-to-understand husband.

Pray

For eyes that see what God sees in others, and ourselves.

Tips & Tools

Okay, I’m just going to leave the link to the Dash waffle maker at the bottom of every post and shut up about it. But just FYI, that’s what I used to make these, per the usual! If you don’t have a waffle maker, these can also be pancake tacos! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try a drizzle of maple syrup across the tops to make them McGriddle style, which sounds super yum, but I haven’t committed to quite yet.
