New Contacts

I am writing this with squinting eyes because I have forgotten to replace my old contacts with new ones, which means everything is just a little more difficult to see.

My difficulty is of my own making.  I have the solution to the problem in my bathroom cabinet. . .a box of brand new contacts, but I haven't availed myself of the solution, hence I am reaping the consequences of my choice.

There are times in our lives when the issues of the day, the circumstances, even our own feelings, cloud our spiritual vision.  We can't see the Lord's vision in our lives as clearly as we think we should.  In those grey moments, we must avail ourselves of the things the Lord has given us to help us "see" more clearly.

We must first avail ourselves of His Word.

"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path," (Psalms 119:105.)

Then we must avail ourselves of the teachings of those who rightly divide the Word of truth, and of the faithful counsel of our fellow Christians.

The Lord desires for us to "see" the way clearly.  Let us take advantage of every help He has given us to walk in the path He has set before us.
