Eyes

I have two eyes that work pretty well considering my age. Actually my eyes work good if I’ve got my contact lenses in place. I can see the things of life, beautiful people and God’s incredible creation. I love to look at the sky at sunrise and sunset so see the particular colors and cloud formation.

Someone said, “the eyes are the windows of the soul.”  I need to be aware of what my eyes see and take in. I need to be cautious with movies, tv shows and certain people due to the way that dress or act. I should always keep my eyes on the Creator.

Solomon had some strong words of wisdom related to my eyes.  Check this out…

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
  21 The Lord sees everything you do,
       and he watches where you go.
 22 An evil man will be caught in his wicked ways;
       the ropes of his sins will tie him up.
 23 He will die because he does not control himself,
       and he will be held captive by his foolishness. (Proverbs 5:21-23 NCV)

 God sees what I do and God sees what I see. I need to protect my eyes because they can invite me a destructive life of sin. I need to keep the “window of soul” free from the clutter of sin.

 I want to keep my eyes laser-focused on the author of my salvation. I want to be content with the blessings that come from Him. Lord, I want to be strong in the face of temptation.

 Pressing On!
