It used to just be reading glasses…
Do you like to read? I must say it is one of my favorite past times…but usually it is late at night and I fall asleep before I get through three pages! But I still enjoy reading anything put in front of me.
There in lies the problem. When I turned 40 my arms simply were not long enough. As time went on, I transferred from just reading glasses to the tri focal version. And at 53, they are the first thing I grab in the morning. They certainly amplify the words, and quite frankly, everything else I lay eyes on! All these things appear larger than they really are…but they indeed are true in image and focus.
I am so grateful for the ability to actually see better. Looking through these glasses really gives me perspective of what I am looking at.
I contend that the Father gives us His eyes if we allow Him to do so. If we see personal problems and issues of this world through His eyes, somehow they become so much clearer. They don’t go away, and we still might not understand. But I have found that I can deal with personal problems with much different “vision”.
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus gets it folks. When no one else understands, He does. He sees it with clarity, and although we may not really understand, we can always trust Him. I know from experience.
So I need my glasses. I am grateful with the “clarity” in which I now see…trust me, they help in many ways…..
Blessings dear ones…
