This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at

Word of Inspiration: Open My Eyes, Lord

“Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.” Psalm 119:18

Most of our discouragements come from a lack of understanding. Often the answers are right in front of us. It can be masked by our circumstances, the obstacle of confusion, or layered in lies. Other times, it is sitting behind a wall of denial in our hearts and in our minds. We do not want to see, hear, or know things that are uncomfortable, painful, or scary. 

Jesus is truth. He cannot lie or deceive us. If we are willing to look beyond our own perspective, we may see a broader picture. God's law is set for many reasons, some that are beyond our comprehension, and will require a measure of faith from us. If we are willing to accept that God's word and His law is not about us, but for a greater purpose that will benefit ALL of us, then we may ask Him to open our eyes so we will be able to see miracles and wondrous things that we could not see on our own.
