Shattered Sight



Shattered sight. 💔Has this ever affected you? Watching Once Upon A Time last night I had tears in my eyes when one of the characters receives the “curse of shattered sight.” She once held her loved one on a pedestal. Only seeing the good in her, the beautiful, lovely praiseworthy things. But after her eyes were affected by shattered sight she was only able to see the hurt and pain. Only the bad things about her loved one. And it caused such turmoil and devastation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been affected by this curse at times, and that’s why this scene of the show hit me so hard. 🤦🏽‍♀️Instead of focusing on the good about God, Caleb, family, friends or strangers there are times where I only saw the bad. The ways I was hurt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It made me think of marriages, couples I’ve worked with, once so happy and filled with love and admiration for each other, and then slowly the bitterness, resentment, 💔the “curse of shattered sight” creeping in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I sat next to Caleb watching the show I prayed 🙏🏼that God would always help me see him and others from the most beautiful perspective. With love, compassion and grace. The way that I want to be seen. It made me think of times throughout my marriage where I didn’t deserve grace and love, but Caleb gave it to me anyways. The way he looks a me and sees only the best in me, which calls forth my best and I’m able to keep being the fuller version of myself. When I call out the good, pure, excellent things in Caleb, when I see him from that beautiful perspective, that’s what he walks into. Our home so filled with love, grace and peace. But when the shattered sight creeps in: it’s the very opposite. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Has the curse of shattered sight been affected your view on God, yourself, or others lately and stealing your peace and joy❓Reframing and retraining our vision to look for the noble, pure, lovely things bring abundant peace in our relationships and peace within ourselves. ❤️Love hearing from you!
