On a rare day, I am fairly certain I get a glimpse of eternity. I see with eyes that are not my own. I have the gift of experiencing something much bigger than what I want or need, but what makes being a part of this world more beautiful. Nothing mystical about it. It is the reason I started writing “annie’s eyes” to record those God glimpses of truth and love, even if they last a fleeting moment. I find it is only when I am tethered tightly to His anchor of love that I am privileged to share in miracles with Him.
I had two moments yesterday that were nothing short of a miracle and a vision, of seeing through His Eyes a grace-filled moment of movement toward Him, grasping His infinite love for me. The specifics would probably bore you, but they were custom-designed to tell me that He cared about details in people’s lives.
Oprah today was talking about some kind of magic where you magnetically draw good things into your universe—the “secret.” One of the “authorities” with her mentioned quantum physics, trying to sound scientific about something nebulous and beyond her own grasp. Can I just say “huh?” Oprah does a lot of good, but she is so off track on this one. This movement is against what and who I know my Lord to be. He does want us to be joyful and delight in Him, not things. He calls us to a higher purpose to reveal His Glory, but that somehow doesn’t get translated into being our own god, our own magical lamp, where we “will” things into being. God is in charge and we are not, I can assure you. And I find great peace in knowing this world is bigger than my happiness. When you intimately walk with the Lord, self is not that important. There is glory at stake. He is so much more.
