The Eyes Have It

eyeMatthew 6:22  Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.

I’ve noticed when I’m close to God and praying regularly my eyes sparkle and seem like they have an inner lamp.  I’ve actually been driving down the highway, listening to Christian CD’s and glimpse the bright twinkle in my rear view mirror.  My eyes have been dull for a long time and yesterday, I prayed and listened to Christian CD’s in my car and yes, I looked. They have the start of a slight glow but not the full-blown beacon that indicates I am close to God. 

It’s funny I’ve used this indicator at times to judge (a nasty word) to see how spiritual a person is and without fail, I’ve noticed if someone makes God a priority, you can see it in their eyes.

I am amused with myself. I once had a friend who asked me, “Would  a humble person know they are humble?” There, I’ve let the cat out of the bag, now everyone knows the silly, secret things I do to evaluate the depth of my spirituality at a given time.  Would a spiritual person be checking their eyes for verification of closeness to God?

I look in the mirror, my eyes are dull. I haven’t prayed yet.  But, it does seem to work. Try it yourself look at a person’s eyes and see if God is there.
