Grateful for what I can see. And grateful that I can choose what I see.
The eyes have been said to be the window to the soul. Be careful what you let in .
Jesus said the eye is the lamp of the body. And if your eyes,are healthy your whole being will be full of light.
What you see is important. It filters to the whole of you. You think on it. Let's face it there are just some things you can't unsee. It shapes your thinking.
In Romans it says to transform your self by the renewing of your mind. This verse comes directly after a verse telling us to use our bodies as,a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to God. A link between your body and your mind clearly exist. We can prove this medically now in 2015, but God , who created both body and soul, tells us it is so.
The eye is a part of your body and a instantaneous link to your mind. If you fill it with images and words of the world how will you not be conformed to it? Now this isn't to say walk around with a blindfold but be aware of what you allow in your eyes and what you put your eye to. Where do you focus?
If we have our sight let us be grateful by choosing wisely to put truth, beauty and light before our gaze. Let us be grateful by turning not a blind eye, but a watchful one away from evil, darkness and deception.
I've chosen poorly lately . So please don't think I come from a position of criticizing. I come from a position of confession. I make bad choices sonetimes. Some delibrate. Some lazy.
But poor. I'm grateful I can repent of this and I'm grateful I can choose again.
Grateful to see another moment with my eyes and my soul .
I get to ooen, close, and shift my eyes to the light.
I'm grateful and looking forward to seeing better tomorrow.
