Focusing On God Guarantees Clear Vision

“I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help” . Psalm 121:1 (KJV)

Some time ago, I was on a Whatsapp call with a good friend, and I started to blink and squint to clear my eyes, because I was seeing her face very blurred. She noticed something was wrong and asked me what was going on. I immediately answered her by saying, “I think I need to go see an eye doctor, because my vision is very blurred,” and she asked, “have you cleaned the camera on your phone?”

I had obviously jumped to a conclusion that my eyes were bad because I had not first checked the lens on my camera, which, once wiped clean, made my friend’s face very clear to me. It was a matter of foggy lens and not foggy vision.

My daddy used to say that in order to see how different people’s perspectives are, we should put 3-4 people in a room, seated in different parts of the room and then ask them to report what they see. They will be likely to report different things because of the way they are seeing those things and even each other.

Like I jumped to a conclusion about my eyesight before first checking the lens of my iPhone camera, we, oftentimes, jump to conclusions about situations and about people before we take time to weed out the possibility that something else is causing the issue with which we are dealing. Is it a matter of foggy lenses? Is it because of where we are at the time the situation arises and the perspective we are given? And what type of reaction/s are we receiving from or passing to others because of how we are dealing with the situation?

People don’t care about what we say to them nowadays, because there are too many opinions being given through social media channels; but people will care about how we react to them when something unexpected happens. Our focus should be on the One who can adjust our vision and keep it clear from the clutters of life.

 “Dear Lord, thank You for giving us clarity when things aren’t clear.”

 For His Glory
