Looking For Afirmation

Psalms 123:1-2
Unto You, I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. 2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has mercy on us.

Yesterday was my son's last baseball game for this season. It was amazing to see how far the kids have come this year. They were making plays, throwing people out, hitting the ball - it was neat. After every play, these 7 year olds would look at the coaches for a look of affirmation, asking with thier look, "Did I do the right thing?" Whether they made the right decision or not (cause with runners on base there are a lot of options which becomes a lot to process in the split second after the ball is hit) our coaches decided we would instruct and affirm.Throughout the season as the kids began to understand the game we had the opportunity to affirm a lot. So much that after the game as I was telling the kids that I hoped they enjoyed the season and would play again next year, one of the boys who began the season very tentatively said, "Oh yeah, I'm playing next year."

I want to be like these children as I continue to grow in my understanding of God's purpose for my life. As obdience becomes more intuative, there is no greater thing than to have the sence of His affirmation. With mercies that are new every day, I look to the heaven not with shame, but with anticipation of my assignments for the day. I want to know how to respond to the subtle language of the Father, watching Him and learning the nuances of my master to anticipate His requests. To watch for His hand and to join Hm in what He is doing. I desire to please Him. So I look for His pleasure and live in His favor.
