Ditch the Rose Colored Glasses!

Take off the rose colored glasses and look around. What do you see? I see a reality, a terrible reality that wasn’t meant to happen. It happened when we chose to go our own way. When we forgot how it feels to be SAFE in HIS arms.

In a life FULL of suffering, pain, and confusion to be wrapped in HIS arms makes it worth it. To be EMBRACED by OUR Creator, by THE God of the Universe is unlike anything in the world. Why would we ever stray? Why would we think anything could compare?

When I took off my glasses, I SAW; I REALLY SAW… I didn’t like it. I can’t imagine the realities God can see. I can’t imagine how much HIS heart is breaking…My heart is breaking and I haven’t seen for myself, only heard…Only heard of stories; witnessed the pain in their eyes; saw their vulnerability; felt their release rushing forth like a ton of crashing waves…

You Lord, See FAR Beyond, You see the Scene played out before you; each attack, each blow, you hear each cry. Lord, we BLAME YOU, All the while YOUR heart is breaking… You say, “Come back child, it’s SAFE Here.” You try to get our attention in every way, but we turn our heads, put on our headphones and drown out the sound. You CALL us BY NAME, but we CHOOSE to believe the mocking and lies others apply to us.

Why won’t it stop? We won’t stop it! We won’t stop the distractions. We won’t stop believing the lies. We won’t stop time and SEEK YOU…

You, Lord are THE Only one who Truly knows us, Truly Loves us, and Truly accepts us.

It’s time to LISTEN… It’s time to CHOOSE God…It’s time to take off the rose colored glasses that have so distorted our view and move forward with our more clear and accurate vision. Without recognition, things can’t change…and this world needs a little change…it starts with us. Seek God with me.
