Thankful Thursday 2-6-2020
Thankful Thursday offers the gift of lifting our eyes to meet the eyes of those around us. As I observe the world around me and even all the people in my own home (including me), it is with more and more frequency faces are looking at a screen versus another the face of another human with which they interact. It has been said that the eyes are the windows to our souls.
If our eyes are the windows to our souls, what are you allowing your eyes to see; thus your soul to see? Are you blessing it by drinking deeply from the Word of God? Do you gift it with meeting the eyes of another treasured soul from God?
When on your screens and in real life, curate the content you allow your eyes to see to the best of your ability. You are valuable and worthy of seeing the beauty and goodness God has placed in this world. I encourage you to put the screen down more frequently and pick up the eyes of a loved one more.
That for which you are looking is what you will find. Here is a bit of inspiration from Psalm 121:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; …
Whether on a screen or face to face, seek wisely my friends!
Blessings to you!
