The expression Eyes are Windows to the Soul conveys the idea that one can understand a person’s emotions and possibly thoughts when you look into his or her eyes. Do you think this idea is realistic, true?
Through the eyes our hearts can be known to others. They tell others what we cannot say with words. Our eyes channel our feelings, those feelings range from trust to distrust, security, contentment, and fear. They are the sincerest part of our face and we do not have control over what our eyes reveal to others. Our eyes can convey whether we are sad or happy, whether we are paying attention or not, or if we are angry or if we are uncertain amount anything. We might try to hide or not admit to how we feel but our eyes always reveal the truth. The best way to get to know someone is to look them in the eyes and notice what they divulge about their emotional state.
The Bible tells us in Hebrews 12:2, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross …. “
As we look back upon history, we know this week is a week of remembrance for what Jesus Christ did for us by dying on the cross. He took the sins of the world upon himself, and willingly gave his life so that we might life eternally with him one day. That day seemed very sad to his mom, his brothers, his disciples, because they did not realize the grave could not hold him. Alleluia, Jesus Christ rose from the grave, he restored our life. He lives!
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made Heaven and Earth.”Psalm 121:1-2 KJV
“Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.”Proverbs 3:7-8 NIV
These verses indicate our eyes should be focused on God and not on ourselves. Wisdom comes not from our own eyes, but from the Lord. Our help, our comfort, our strength comes from the LORD and if we do not keep our eyes on Him, we may make incorrect decisions that may be detrimental to our well-being. Our eyes give us the ability to understand the Good News about God’s glory. He is the light and when we look up to Him, He sees what is in our hearts and souls.
I pray that my eyes and yours might enlighten our hearts to know the hope that is freely given by Jesus Christ. I pray that you might know and understand God’s richness, His mercy, comfort and strength. I pray you may know how much he loves you and me.
