Grasshopper Vision

“There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants) and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.” Numbers 13:33

My daughter gently holds the first grasshopper she finds each spring. She shows me it’s pretty purple belly, gives it a kiss and sets it free.

We thank You, Lord, that though we may be as grasshoppers in our sight and our enemies’, You pick us up and hold us close, giving us the kiss of Your salvation . . .setting us free. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Trusting God’s Sight

I won’t spend much time
looking at me
or listen too long
at what others might see
either way is likely
to puff me up or tear me down
so I’ll stay in Your hand
trusting Your sight is sound.

Jesus Vision

“And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.”  Matthew 17:8

Our eyes take in so much around us, good and bad.

Oh Lord, help me to see You only in everyone and everything today.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

The Eyes Have It

Always needed help to see
be it thick glasses or thin contacts
but it wasn’t the optometrist
who fitted me
with a lighted heart lens
that magnifies You.

Have you seen Jesus today?
