"With Eyes Tightly Shut"

With eyes tightly shut I can see for miles, as I see one that laughs and hear another that smiles.

I see colors bright red, blue and green, that in todays light are seldom seen.

Life's clouds are one side dark and one side gold but the light in my heart shines joy untold.

With eyes tightly shut I can see far away, where this world's light cannot gray each day.

I can see inside where I've always been and reflect the light of my best friend.

Each problem I'll allow to take this test, of my light inside or the world's light so bright, to shine most bright in the darkest night.

This world shows light and convinces desire but in my heart shines God's bright fire.

With eyes tightly shut I talk with God and see new life, which brightly lights life's darkest strife.

Mark 8: 18....Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

Sometimes I think maybe we should see with our ears and hear with our eyes.. The real problem though is that we forget to hear and see with God's eyes.. Today is filled with problems, but more numerous are His blessings.. This world is and always has been screaming in terror of toil, disease, famine, world power and all the things and siuations that threaten our short mortal existence.. We get our Spiritual lives and our physical lives confused and the devil likes it.. We will often have to close our eyes to the world's view to glimpse at the treasures God has placed around us, that are awaiting us, and those that are already in our heart.. I watched God's sky today and got a small preview of the joy He is willing to share with me each and everyday.. Today even though this day may seem more than less than perfect; close your eyes to the toil and look on the good God has given you.. Now as the announcer used to say, "Don't touch that dial," because there is more to come.. Have a great day and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance, you pray for me.. May God Really Bless You!
