If you wear contacts or glasses, this will have a bit more of an impact for you. But even if you don’t, you will “see” what I am talking about.
When my oldest son, Jalen, was 10 years old, he brought a note home from school saying he needed to get his eyes checked.
So off to the eye doctor we went and sure enough – he needed glasses!
I will never forget the moment he put his new glasses on and stepped outside.
He literally gasped and said, “Mom, look at all the leaves on the trees!”
The change in his vision was so gradual that he had forgotten what the leaves on the trees actually looked like!
This can happen so easily to us in our lives, can’t it?
We start the year off with a clear vision of where we want to be, what we want to do differently but before you know it, it’s the end of January and the new vision has been blurred with routine tasks and the short sightedness of just getting through the day.
It isn’t until someone questions our vision that we stop and evaluate how we are looking at things.
Let me be that someone for you today!
How are you looking at your life?
Are you setting aside time to be still with God and allowing Him to prioritize your daily tasks?
Are you taking at least one step forward each day in the direction of your passion and purpose?
This morning, after you put on God’s armor (yes that was a blatant reminder!) put on God glasses and ask Him to help you see your day through His eyes.
