Earlier this week while digging through my nightstand drawer in search of something, I found this old optical illusion card of the face of Christ tucked inside a hand embroidered tissue holder. A friend had given it to me many years ago, and it made quite a lasting impression. I’m sure many of you have seen it before.
Fascinating how when you first look at the image inside the circle, it appears to have no intrinsic value or hold a higher truth. It seems like a waste of time to spend a moment looking at it.
But when you:
Relax your mind
Concentrate on the four dots between the “heart shaped eyes” for about 30 secs.
Then close your eyes
Tilt your head back
Keep your eyes closed
You will see a circle of light
Continue to look at the circle
What do you see?
The face of Christ appears in your mind’s eye.
Such is our perception at times. Things may appear to the five senses to be a big mess that will never amount to anything good...but, if you pause and take a closer look within, you find the face of Christ shining through, transforming your mind, and bringing you peace.
Whatever you're going through right now, please remember that you are not alone. God loves you, and will see you through to better days. Take it one day at a time, in faith, and give thanks for the blessings already received.
Love and blessings,
