Eye Makeup

The morning was off to a beautiful start with a hot cup of coffee, the news on television and all I needed to do was put on my makeup. 

I have loved makeup since middle school. My friend Alana and I would spend hours to apply just the right amount of eyeshadow and mascara. I hate to admit it but we even used a safety pin to separate our eyelashes!  Something I later told my daughters to NEVER do! 

On this morning the eyeshadow had been applied with just enough highlighter on the brow, a darker color in the crease and a middle color on the lid. The finishing touch was to add the eyeliner.

I opened the bottle, drew a line across the lid and as soon as I had finished, it happened! I sneezed!  Now you may not think this is so bad, but my freshly lined eyes were now a black goopy mess!  The wet liner was above and below my eye! It looked as though I had put my makeup on in the dark!  

I freaked out a little!  Why now? Of course I only had 5 minutes to finish before I needed to leave for work. This meant that I had to quickly remove the makeup and try to salvage my eyeshadow! 

I spent a moment to ask God to settle my heart and prepare me for the day.

Somehow, I accomplished the task, arrived at work on time and throughout the day removed what remained of the goopy black in my eyes!

What did I learn from this? 

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 (NLT)

It only takes a moment for things to get crazy in life. How you respond depends on that one little moment of asking God to settle your heart.

He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.

Psalm 107:29

If Jesus can calm the storms on the water, He can calm your heart!

Father, thank you for calming our anxious hearts!
