We’ve had a taste of feasting our eyes on other people’s eyes in the past three years. Masking has made it difficult for us to get a clear picture of what a person is actually thinking, but our eyes tell a lot. Even though the rest of our face was covered, the eyes could display anger, frustration, hatred, love, and many emotions that are within us. They say the eyes are the windows of the soul, and I believe they are very important to our spiritual as well as physical sight. In our age of technological advances, it hardly seems necessary to use our minds.  Our information is right at our fingertips.  Wouldn’t it be interesting if at some point we eventually wind up like E.T. with our line of communication being our pointer finger? Our eyes take in all kinds of information – some that isn’t always good for us. Our mind may have difficulty processing the good from the bad, especially with all the eye candy being bantered around us.

We’ve been designed as visual creatures.  Our eyes are an important part of our makeup. We often look only at what’s right in front of them.  We need proof – we need to see for ourselves – we need to have the drama laid out before us so we can experience the beauty of a story or an image. My husband knows how to craft beautiful images through his art.  I use my gifts to turn stories into performance drama.  There are so many talented authors who have transferred their thoughts into beautiful words for the eye to read and places to stir the imagination.

Until we no longer have use of our eyes, we rely on them for many things and yet we’re often blind to the truth that’s right in front of us.  The clarity of God’s Word requires only one thing from us and that’s opening our eyes in faith to what its pages hold.  We don’t need to be an intellectual – we don’t need to be a theologian – we don’t even need to be a believer. In faith, inspired by the Holy Spirit, our eyes will be opened to the beautiful plan God has designed for each of us – a plan that goes far beyond what our earthly life provides.  It’s the nourishment that God has prepared for everyone in eternity.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Again, a gift of age but you truly can see love or imbalance. My pastor and I were just talking about this.

    Amen, well said. Someone asked Fannie Crosby if she was angry that she had lost her vision, and Fannie replied that she was given a great gift in that the next thing she sees will be Jesus. However we see here, we will see clearly in Heaven.
