We will soon begin the season of Lent when God says, “Return to me with your whole heart” (Joel 2:11). Do we find ourselves trying to think of something different to do during Lent? More service? Fewer complaints? Stations of the Cross? Here is a thought: Seeing with God’s eyes. Seeing with God’s eyes means seeing reality with “the eyes of your heart” (Eph. 1:18). We become fully conscious that everything is surrounded by God’s love. We see all things in God and God in all things. Our physical eyes are open about 16 hours a day. It’s difficult to see God in all things even a few minutes. Perhaps even more difficult to make ourselves mindful to try. Over the next 40 days, upon waking pray, “God, help me to see with your eyes today.”
