Footprints of God

Your path led through the sea,
your way through the mighty waters,
though your footprints were not seen. Psalm 77:19

Ever gone through a tough time when you doubted God was even there?
Or maybe you've just been experiencing a trial for so long that you think God has forgotten you. I think the Israelites might have felt the same way when they were hemmed in between the Red Sea and Pharoah's army. Where was God anyway? Nowhere to be seen!

But God parted that sea and led them right through the mights waters -- even though they couldn't see Him. Psalm 77:19 tells us that God's "footprints were not seen."

I wonder how many times in my life I've thought God was distant, aloof, or that He'd forgotten me when He was actually right beside me -- but His "footprints were not seen." I wonder.

God, would You grant me eyes that see the unseen? I want to see your footprints all over my life. I KNOW they are there, because I KNOW You are there. Open my eyes. Or better yet, strengthen my faith so I trust in the unseen footprints of my loving Father.
