How's Your Vision?
Hey All! This is a picture of me, while being abducted by aliens. These little green scaly creatures captured me at the mall in they're little hovercraft, and took me too their command space ship and performed many painful eye scans to study the human teen. Just kidding!!
Actually, today I was at the optomitrisist's office getting an eye exam. My eyes have worsen as per normal. While I was there I had a chance to think about my spiritual eyes. I wonder how well I'm seeing through them. Only a few times have I gone to the eye doctor and my eyes have gotten better. I hope my spiritual eyes are getting clearer each day.
I often pray that God will give me His eyes but the question is, do I really try to have God's eyes? With my physical eyes, if I want them to get better I would have to decide not to sit too close to the computer, or not read in the dark. I would have to make up my mind that I would no longer put my eyes through all that misery. Snuggling under my big comforter until one in the morning, while reading with a flashlight, would no longer be wise.
Many times we make the same types of mistakes with our spiritual eyes, or we simply stop using them at all. We strain them by trying to see God's will, without going to His Word for support and guidance. Soon without guidance from God our eyes become blurry and we can't see what's in front of us. We think that He isn't there even though He's right beside us, just waiting for us to look up to his light instead of searching in the darkness.
