When God passes you His glasses..

then you can truly see.

"God opened my eyes to see a whole new world."

                       "My eyes were opened and I could see things from a completely different view."
-lynda's journal

If bad things didn't happen then why would we ever need God? He has already extended His grace by giving us the chance to choose His love. If this world was always happy and unbroken then we would all live more for ourselves [even more than we already do] because we wouldn't think we would need anything else. And that is not the purpose of life. The purpose of life is to live your life for God, because He created you and made you in His image.

He had to break me for me to turn to Him. And when I went seeking, He opened my eyes to a whole new world [Matthew 7:7, Jeremiah 29:13]. I stepped out of Lynda's world and into God's. We are so small and to know that God knows every hair on my head and everything in my heart [Luke 12:7]... I can believe that He makes all things work together for my good [Romans 8:28]. So many bad things happen in this world but don't you think that the God of the Universe who shows His true faithfulness and love in so many ways, has a good hold on the world? Our little tiny minds can't even begin to comprehend what God's reasons are. His mind is completely different. He doesn't even exist in our time. But if we trust in Him, then He can pass us the glasses and we can begin to see things through His eyes instead of our own.

We can see the good that comes from the bad.
We can see the orphans and the homeless who need us.
We can see broken hearts healed.
We can see people never being truly fulfilled by a temporary, worldly satisfaction.
We can see that without God; nothing is good, nothing is everlasting, nothing is created.

Ephesians 3:17-19 says "And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
How would we live differently if we could grasp and truly understand how much God loved us? We would never doubt God's plan for us, even if our life was really tough at the moment, because we would understand that God would never do anything with intentionally hurting us, and that would lead us to give Him complete control over us--we could find everlasting joy in how much He loved.

Ask God to give you His glasses. So you can see life through His eyes. Which then it can show you how much He really loves you and why His plan is to never harm you. Bad things happen but with a God written story, there is always a happy ending. Find His glasses so you can read it.
