Double Vision



I’m no foreigner to sleepless nights. You’ve been there. You get something on your mind and you can’t turn off the mindless thoughts.

It’s human nature to think if we dwell on something and busy ourselves telling others our problems, that somehow, miraculously they’ll disappear, or at best get easier to deal with.

It’s like we have double vision. In one light, we see God near and in control. But, when things don’t happen on our time clock, we get tunnel vision. We tend to look at things from a very narrow perspective, and can’t really see the big picture or the detailed facts that are right in front of us.

You don’t see what God’s doing in the background, because you’re too focused on how you think you can fix the situation.

Hindsight, now there’s a perspective of seeing clearly, after the facts, or after the event has happened. Ah, it is so much more clearer now….

Are there things unclear in your life? Is your focus on the wrong goals?

Get in line with God. He can set your vision to 20/20. He can declutter the distortion of the world’s views and deceptions.

Proverbs 20: 23 – “The Lord detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please him.”
