Clouded Sight

Clouded Sight

1 John 4:1-6

As a photographer, I push the limits of an image. I try my best to present the “perfect” photo. I’m not a perfectionist, nor am I an expert, however, I love capturing what God has created.

When it comes to our eyes we believe what we see. The images on our various devices and T.V. screens all appear with just the right amount of light, contrast, color, and saturation. We enjoy looking at beautiful things. And the Enemy knows it!!

The Enemy thinks we may not look closer or even come back for a second glance. We know Satan to be the king of liars yet, we shrink back and say nothing. We continue to follow along after him, hanging on to every last word, desperately wanting the lies to be true. 

It’s time to move on. 

The questions we should ask ourselves daily:

1.What needs to be edited?

2.What needs a closer look?

3.Who needs to be cropped out or cut off?

4.What filter am I seeing my life through? 

5. What am I easily deceived by?

As we learn to be more reflective each day and grow deeper in the Word of God we will know when we are being lied to. We have been warned. How we apply these warnings will help push us into our purpose.

      Thank you Beloved. Thank you for reading and supporting me. ❤️

  2. I had planned to weed in my garden today but it’s a little to windy for me. After reading your blog I decided to weed out some of my thoughts and seek a plan to help weed out other distractions with prayer and meditation that once weeded will not return. Thanks precious- very timely. Love agape Mom
