Jesus Eyes

The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness
Matthew 6:22

I just finished reading a great book, okay, well I didn’t actually read it, I listened to it on tape. But close enough. The title of the book is Divine, by Karen Kingsbury. It’s a story about a modern day Mary Magdalene. There are some very hard parts of the book to read, but hey, life can be hard sometimes. But the blessing from the book was worth getting through the difficult parts. Sorta like life itself.

In the story, the girl, Mary, talks about people with Jesus eyes. How folks that love Jesus have something different in their eyes.

I was thinking about that. Have you ever noticed it yourself? You look at someone and they just look different. Their eyes sparkle, regardless of what the rest of their body is portraying, there is always something so warm and inviting coming from their eyes.

I remember hearing someone say that our eyes are the windows to our souls. Boy, isn’t that the truth. We can tell so much by someone’s eyes. Have you ever tried to talk to someone and they wouldn’t look you in the eye?

Remember when you were young and you did something wrong and your Mother said, “Look at me.” Because she knew the minute she looked at your eyes, she would know the truth.

We can hide behind our actions, but our eyes will always show our true hearts.

Father, there is so much darkness … help my light to shine. A light in the darkness brings hope … teach me Lord how to share your light.

I Love You Jesus.
  In Your Name I Pray,
  Amen

God Bless You!

Love,
Joyce

    I highly recommend just about anything by Karen Kingsbury.

    I just finished her “Firstborn” series with Dayne Matthews, Katy, Christian Kids Community Theater, the Baxters and company. Solid, sound, insightful and inspiring. Five stars!
