Blindness, Physical and Spiritual

I'm encouraged. Maybe I'm not quite "over the hill" just yet . . . at least when it comes to my seeing.

I went to the optometrist to have my eyes checked. He said my distance vision was great and I could just use those store bought glasses for reading. It made my day.

The reason I'm so happy about the results is that I am always losing my "cheap" glasses. I have several pair but am never able to find any of them. I can be found walking into every room muttering, "Where did I put those glasses!" Sometimes I find them, sometimes I don't.

When I finally lose all my glasses, I go back to Target and buy some more. Not so if I had to wear expensive ones. It might get to the point that I would have to choose between buying groceries or buying glasses (I know which one my hubby would choose :D)!

I've often said, out of all my senses, my eyesight is the thing I would most hate to lose. When you can't see, it alters your whole life. That's true in the spiritual realm, too.

Sometimes we're blind because we want to be. We just don't want to be or do what God wants so we simply close our spiritual eyes and go blindly on doing what we want. When you are spiritually blind because you chose to be, it alters your whole life. It's called disobedience. When you are disobedient, you can't please God.

Sometimes we're blind because we have not been taught. If we allow Him to, God will use someone or some thing to open our eyes to see the truth. If we are willing to make the effort to learn, it will alter our whole life, too.

I just have one question. How is your spiritual eyesight?

Hoping my spiritual  eyes are even better than my physical eyes, Gloria
