Open the eyes of my heart

Updated: Jul 1

Wow ya'll this is a reoccurring theme for me in so many areas of my life. Its one of the reasons I constantly pray, "Lord show me things I might not otherwise know." Today I read 2 Corinthians 5. ‬‬


“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may be repaid for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.”


So good. I think we often think of our Christian walk as the day we give our life to Christ and that’s it but we should also be considering when we have to give an account for the life we lived.

That’s not saying that we can lose our salvation, but it is saying we’re going to have to give an account for it. And if I’ve decided to give my life to Christ and I continue to build that relationship with him, I should want to honor him with my life. My life should model an honest effort of spending lots of time with Jesus (In his Word, abiding and prayer), becoming more like him day by day and doing as he did. My life should point to Jesus. All that to say, I had decided to make the daily decision to allow Christ to transform my life…


Come to him (Accept Christ & Get Baptized)

Grow in him and with him (Community with other believers, Bible Study, Praise & Worship, Prayer, Read the bible, Communion, Abiding, Silence & Meditation...)

The next step is, I can’t help but be a living example of his hand on my life, which is where we become ambassadors for Christ. So Im compelled to GO and share the good news.

My hearts desire is for people to look at me and be pointed to Christ. Not because I’m doing life perfectly but because, even in my imperfection, I'm In love with Jesus and am pursuing him wholeheartedly.

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.””

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭10‬, ‭20‬ ‭CSB‬‬


Today 2 things stuck out to me. There are 2 important days in our lives. The day we accept Christ into our life and turn our lives over to Him and when we appear before the judgement seat and make an account for our lives on earth. Accepting and securing our eternity is BIG and the next step is how I choose to live now that I know the gift I've been given. It's as if the scales fell from my eyes today. Drinking has become a big problem in my life. I didn't truly SEE or recognize my drinking as a stumbling block for myself and others; an unhealthy coping mechanism. Now I see it. I cannot unsee it. The good news is it's not a moral failing or a lack of will power. Im learning it is a disease and there is a cure! Yeah!


“At once something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was baptized.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭9‬:‭18‬ ‭CSB


Now that I know different, I can live different. Im sure alcohol won't be the only struggle I have. I do have a way of living that will allow me to one day stand before the Lord and honestly confess my failings and how I sought after the Lord with all my heart. My prayer is the Lord will say "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been a woman after my heart. That is is my desire and the goal I chase after.


What is something today God is revealing to you that now that you see different you can't help but do/live differently?
