Back in February I got new glasses. I planned ahead and saved so I could get transition lenses that darken in the sun. Even though I have worn them daily for the past two months when I walk inside I wonder, ‘Who dimmed the lights?’
It reminds me of how I feel toward God at times. I have been a Christian every day for years so when my circumstances darken I wonder why God has become dim in my life. I never consider that it is the lens of my heart that has changed.
If you feel God has left you all alone in grim circumstances it’s not God who has left you but you that has left God. Examine the lens of your heart first to see that God was always there.
Heavenly Father, help me to remember your presence in every situation no matter how hard. You are faithful to stand by me even in the roughest storm. You are the Lord of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
