Do you have temporal vision for the here and now?
Or do you have eternal vision that comes by faith?
It can be so easy to get caught up in feelings and circumstances. After all, we're only human.
But God calls us to trust Him.
I recall some years ago when I used to climb up the mountain behind my home. I was in good shape so at that time it was easy for me to do. When I got to the top, I had a great view of Phoenix. I could see all the way to downtown. I always looked for the steeple of my church in the distance. I would sit down and pray and then climb down the mountain.
On the way down the mountain, I often asked for God to open my eyes; the eyes of my heart. I asked that He help me to see people as He saw them. Help me to look past the outward appearance to the heart. Help me to truly see the needs around me and in this hurting world.
I want this to continue to be my prayer. My circumstances may have changed and my surroundings look different. But open my eyes Lord. Help me to see with Your eyes of love.
I'm linking up with Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday.
Blessings and love,
