What do you see in this picture?

We all see differently, through a lens of experience, understanding, wounding, as well as healing. 

I want to see more clearly and with more understanding, but mostly I want to see through God’s eyes in every area of life. For the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks at the outward appearance, and God looks on the heart.

I’m a bit blind without my glasses, ugh. I’m not particularly eager to wear them all day, even though they’re available to me. I’m also a bit blind when I don’t see the sacred in the ordinary parts of my day. The sweetness of time with the Lord compared to the chores, and the work seems dim. Until I remember the power of the present moment, and how I want to show up. I can mumble about every load of laundry, every dish, every call, email, text, wave at the neighbor, or I can take each interaction as an opportunity to practice kingdom living here on earth.


Have you heard of the Examen prayer by Saint Ignatius Loyola? A Latin word for examination, a meditation, and a window to find God in the most trivial parts of the day.


Maybe it’s a tall order, or perhaps your spiritual eyes are wide awake!

Either way, seeing with the eyes of our heart is a practice, a spiritual discipline, a tool to dive deeper into the abundant life God so freely offers.

Use the prayer, your yoga, breathe, be intentional, repeated actions that engage the senses will counter the enormous pull of our untrained mind.


Ask God for a revelation of His Word, His outlook, and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom, develop an ongoing relationship throughout the day. Allow them to open your eyes to a new, eternal perspective.


Did you see the waters, sky, and tree trunk or the many faces in the photo above? Practice, wear your glasses or put on your spiritual eyes that go beyond the limited natural mind. 


What would change if we let the truth of God’s Word guide us in our choices and decisions? The revelation makes our pathway clear so that we experience more joy in the humdrum. 


Your words are a flashlight to light the path ahead of me and keep me from stumbling. Psalm 119:105 (TLB) Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually. 1 Chronicles 16:11 ESV

Here’s to more light and more revelation in 2020!


God loves you, and so do I,
