Eyes of the Soul

"Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye." - H Jackson Brown Jr.


Your soul has eyes.

Your soul has eyes, dear reader. Eyes that can see things our minds cannot explain.

They can see hope in the midst of destruction and despair. They can see goodness beneath disheveled and sin-stained skins. The eyes of our soul can see truth that is too simple and childlike for our intellect to grasp. They can see love when the world around us demands outrage and anger and hate.

The eyes of the soul do not listen to reason. They don't calculate risks. They don't envision the hurdles and the giants and the mountains that paralyze our minds with fear.

Most of the time though, we don't see with our soul. We don't listen to our heart. We count reason and ration more worthy than feelings.

But the soul keeps right on seeing ... in pictures that come to us in our dreams … in whispers of hope amidst our tears … in memories of promises that time cannot fade.

It's no wonder that Paul prayed this prayer for the Ephesians, "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." - Ephesians 1:18-19

May the eyes of your heart too be open and bright, dear reader.
