New Vision

I got new glasses this week, and I can see again! Praise God! I have horrible vision; my eye doctor even jokes about it. I’ve been praying for my eyes for the longest, and they have improved.  This time my prescription is better!

I was talking to someone about my new found vision that same day. I was excited. I was too blind y’all. I apologize to anyone who rode with me, especially at night. But ask yourself, did you die though?! Anyway… she was confused about how I couldn’t see well in my old glasses if my vision got better. I told her that even though my vision got better my prescription was wrong.

This can happen to us. We progress but we still see things the old way. I hear that people that lose weight sometimes see themselves as their heavier selves. They cannot see the physical change in their bodies and therefore act like accordingly.

I realized recently that this has happened in my life as well. As I’m working on #GlowUp2018, I realized God has released me from something that I still hold near and dear to my heart. I don’t have to carry around gluttony anymore.  I think it mine… I have to carry it and I have to deal with the consequences of it. I just HAVE to eat 3 cookies instead of one because I cannot control myself but that’s not true. God has freed me I just have to walk in freedom. I have to adjust my vision to align with what he has said. Until I do so, I’m in mental bondage.

In talking to another friend today, I realized that I also could be fearful of freedom. There are no more excuses in freedom. If I say, “well I fall into gluttony and that’s why I’m unhealthy;” there’s an excuse. To be free from sin means to be free from excuses and that’s scary. So I choose to walk in bondage which is even crazier. The way he sees me is the only thing that matters anyway above how I see myself.

God wants me to see myself the way he does. This is true freedom.

God is good y’all!

Sidebar: I told the people at the eyeglasses shop that my vision got better and they asked me if I had been eating carrots. I kept saying no I prayed. Speak truth when people ask you about what God has done for you, even when they don’t want to listen.

We all think too much... That's it. That's the blog. Okay, obviously I'm joking. Anyway, I'm reading this book currently that asks you to look up the call stories of a few people in the bible and asks

One day last week I was thinking about how I am naturally made. All of the things God has put in me and what he wants me to do. What I normally am inclined to like or dislike. And I'm not gonna lie...
