God is With Us!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah‬ ‭43:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

No matter what is happening in your life, never forget that the Lord is walking with you through it.

Lord, help me to look at YOU and not on what is going on around me!

“…Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”” Matthew‬ ‭14:29-31‬ ‭ESV‬‬

May we KEEP OUR EYES UPON JESUS!

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!!!!
