Today we ask that the Holy Spirit purify our perceptions. Where we now see darkness, we pray to see light. Where we now see blame, we pray to see blessing. We wish to see with the eyes of Christ.
Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.
I can obscure my holy sight, if I intrude my world upon it. Nor can I behold the holy sights Christ looks upon, unless it is His vision that I use. Perception is a mirror, not a fact. And what I look on is my state of mind, reflected outward. I would bless the world by looking on it through the eyes of Christ. And I will look upon the certain signs that all my sins have been forgiven me.
You lead me from the darkness to the light; from sin to holiness. Let me forgive, and thus receive salvation for the world. It is Your gift, my Father, given me to offer to Your holy Son, that he may find again the memory of You, and of Your Son as You created him.
Quote of the Day "Doing anything for a purpose other than love means reliving the split from God, perpetuating and maintaining that split."
