Heavenly Vision

Heavenly Vision

Good
Morning,

2 Corinthians 4:16-18.  “Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.  For our momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Yesterday Abigail and I went to the eye doctor.
Both of us have been having some blurred vision and needed to get our prescriptions updated.  Sorry to say, I have now entered the world of bifocals.  This verse came to mind as I was lamenting my introduction to the annoyances of being in my late 40s. Even in my frustration, I decided I do not want to go back to a younger me.  Over the years I have grown closer to God and have developed a deeper relationship with Him that I would never want to give up.  As my earthly eyes have diminished, my heavenly vision has been strengthened. Dealing with any problem here, no matter how painful, is insignificant when we focus our eyes on Christ and eternity.  Earthly trials will only last for a short time whereas for Christians our future with the LORD in heaven is forever.
When considering the things that are unseen, I like to compare it to viewing a “Magic Eye” picture.  When you first look at it, you
see chaos, but when you focus on it correctly, a clear image appears. Sometimes it takes quite a few tries before you can see the hidden picture, but it is well worth it when you do.
No, I am not going to lose heart about my fading vision.  I have my focus on something more lasting – eternity.

Love,

Mama

Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares. If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares. If you see one or two squares, start over!
When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still, and the hidden image will magically appear. Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes. Good Luck!
