I stopped by my ophthalmologist’s office yesterday to pick up a pair of reading glasses.
Common for many of us climbing or already over the hill.
They help us focus on that which is near us.
With the help of the Snellen eye chart and an eye professional, we can all have normal or 20/20 vision.
20/20 vision or acuity is considered “normal” vision. What that actually means is you can read at 20 feet a letter that most human beings should be able to read at 20 feet.
In an attempt to have 20/20 vision, I’ve worn glasses. And contacts. I’ve had several eye surgeries. Radial Keratotomy (RK). Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT). Cataract. All in an attempt to offer me the best, clearest, healthiest vision I can afford.
My vision is important to me. It’s one of my five senses. My sense of sight. Being able to see that which is right before my eyes.
Sometimes things may happen right before our eyes that we do not see. Regardless of whether or not we have 20/20 vision. Things we may be blind to because our biases and our emotions get in the way.
Let’s all open not only our eyes, but our hearts, so we can truly “see” what lies before us. Let’s not just rely on our five senses, but our faith to guide us through the dark. When we cannot see. Those times we are blinded by the world’s ways.
Be still. Trust God. And “see” what great things He has in store for you and through you! What His perfect vision offers you. No glasses necessary!
Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!
1 Samuel 12:16
