[My brother was out kayaking on a river today and came home so excited to tell me a story of what happened…I thought it was an awesome story, so I just have to share!]
Somehow in my brother’s ride the kayak flipped over, and everything in it came out. He was able to find everything except his tackle box, which by its weight was sure to be somewhere on the bottom. In his continued search he found goggles that apparently someone else had left behind. He put them on and swam down to the bottom of the river (about 6 ft deep) and, with the help of the goggles, he soon found the missing tackle box.
It got me to thinking of how we see and how God sees. To be sure, He sees much more than we can see. Sometimes without realising it (or we’re just stubborn) we are searching through our own eyes and just can’t seem to find what we’re looking for. Sometimes we don’t even know what we’re looking for.
Instead of searching for things, we need to seek God, and when we have found Him, He will be our “goggles.” We will then see what we need to see when we need to see it and find what we need to find when we need to find it. So put Him on! 😉 Well…you know what I mean.
