For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 RSV
“I think you will be needing bifocals this time,” the optometrist said when I was teaching middle school. I had known this was coming. I had been stumbling over words as I read to my students. This was the summer for me to correct the problem. The accuracy of my vision is important to me in my job.
Just as we maintain our vision by following the doctor’s advice, so we must keep our spiritual vision by following God’s word. He gives us prescription after prescription in the Bible for keeping our spiritual vision clear. We are reminded to keep our eyes on Jesus through faith, daily Bible reading, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians.
Dear Lord, Though my earthly vision may decline, may my spiritual vision always remain sharp and clear. May I walk in faith with spiritual “eyes” looking to you.
I love to walk with and write about our great God and my Savior, Jesus Christ. Now in my senior years, I can say, looking back at the joys, difficulties, and challenges of life, "I know that my Redeemer lives," (Job 19:25 NIV). I am a retired teacher and author of many published articles, and contributor to two books--God Still Meets Needs (Littleton)and Grandparenting Through Obstacles: Overcoming Family Challenges to Reach Your Grandchildren for Christ (Wilburn,Butts). I am also author of In God's Creation: Devotions for the Outdoors and In God's Creation: Devotions for the Beach. Both books are available on Amazon and www.booknofurther.com.
