  1. I too had the coke bottle glasses journey in elementary school. In recent years due to glaucoma I’ve lost some sight that has made me more dependent on others for driving in the rain or after dark. I appreciate the being less independent points me more to being dependent on God as well. I love your connection even deeper to our need for close examination for our physical sight & spiritual sight! Thank you for this insight, Barb! Blessings!

    • Hi Ruth, thank you for sharing your journey with your vision and the lessons on how your eyesight changes have impacted your faith. Such words of wisdom. Thank you for stopping by today!

  2. Thank you Barb. I loved your words today. I was praying this morning and asking God to help me keep my eyes on Him and His plan. Perfect timing. Just what I needed
    Our fuzzy world really does become clearer when we realize…”God longs to give a clearer spiritual vision to you”

    Have a blessed day \0/

    • Hi Janet! Isn’t it so good how God knows what we need to hear and when we need to hear it?! Thank you for sharing your comment with us today.

  3. Barb thank you for this post. God is good all the time and all the time God is good. How true this is. Don Moen sings this song. You get it on YouTube. It reminds us no matter what our circumstances are God is always there. We can go God in prayer if we don’t see light at the end of the tunnel and trust the promises in his word. Especially if we are between a rock and hard place in our lives. God will help us through them and tell us what to do by speaking to us through his Holy Spirit. I say Amen to that. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Xx

  4. I love the analogy of corrective lenses because it takes the fear out of letting God come close and assessing where we need help with our perspective. I’ve worn corrective lenses since 4th grade so that resonates! Thank you!

    • Hi Pearl, looks like we’ve both been wearing corrective lenses for a long time! I’m glad that the analogy and today’s devotional connected with you!

  5. Barb,

    I say this pray often “search me, O God, & know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Also ask God to change my heart, make it ever true, may I be like you. We all need clear spiritual vision. A perspective that sees our daily trials & tribulations through the lens of Jesus. Look at the big picture & measure life by eternity standards.

    Blessings 🙂
