LORD, Open My Eyes!!

I am having my first cataract surgery tomorrow. It is amazing to me that the doctor will remove my lens and put a brand new lens in my eye!! What a miracle!

I have to admit that my excitement outweighs any nervousness I may have. I have worn glasses and/or contacts around 50 years!! The thought of waking up in the mornings and being able to see is awesome!!

Yes, I desire clear vision with my physical eyes…but even greater is my desire for clear vision spiritually! I pray that my renewed vision physically will be a sign of the renewing of my spiritual vision.

May I see what You see, Lord!! May I see past the physical and into the spiritual reality of Your kingdom. May I speak and declare YOUR will over Your people and Your world!

LORD, open my eyes!!!!

WATCHMEN ARISE!

“Under a Tornado Watch…Tropical Storm Elsa. UPDATE: Tornado Watch cancelled!”

Within the hour of me posting about the tornado watch this morning, it was cancelled. It just goes to show – things can change quickly…in weather and in life!

We should always be “watchmen.” Watching for physical storms AND spiritual storms!!

For thus the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman; let him announce what he sees.” Isaiah 21:6

…”Upon a watchtower I stand, O Lord, continually by day, and at my post I am stationed whole nights.” Isaiah 21:8

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stays awake in vain. Psalm 127:1

Lord, watch over our city…our state…our country…our world!! Open our eyes, O Lord! Empower us to be Your watchmen! Empower us to be Your voice! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray! AMEN!
