The other day, I was taking out my contact lenses and when I put them in their container, I noticed that as I pulled them from my eyes I had collected small particles of mascara. When I put them in the container and began to pour the cleanser in on top of them, filling their bowl shape, I realized that this is a little bit like my life. Now, you may be asking, "How do get life implications from contact lenses?" Well, here's the way I "see" it, or how God spoke to me through it.
The contact represents my life, and each day I get worn and sometimes worn out. The events, circumstances, trials, and joys of each day wear on me, in good and bad ways. But, more often than not, I feel like I need to be cleansed. The cleaning solution represents the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. When we are soaked in His presence the "little" particles of life that wear us down are washed away, and we can be used again for our purpose. Sometimes, we need to soak a little longer in the Word, or spend more time with the Holy Spirit, so that the grime will be fully stripped away, and so that through this purification our true and greatest potential will be brought forth.
This is just one of the small ways that God has spoken to me, and a glimpse into what He teaches me. I hope that you, too, might have a 'clearer vision' of how God sees you, and what spectacular plans He has for each one of your lives!
Blessings as you come into more 'contact' with Him,
