Life lessons sometimes come in the most unexpected ways.
One morning my left contact lens split in half as soon as I put it in my eye. I got the larger piece out, but the smaller piece floated under my eye lid, instigating a rather peculiar game of hide and seek. After praying off a major panic attack, I closed my eyes and focused on slowing rolling them around and around (the fact that I've mastered eye rolling over the years was a major help – LOL). As I continued rolling my eyes up, down, and sideways, I could see flashes of light outside my lids. Finally, I felt the plastic particle float down to the corner of my eye. When I opened my eyes, it came out with my tears.
Moral of the story: When something rips apart in your life and you’ve tried all you can to get the unwanted pieces out, panic won’t help, but praying, crying and rolling your eyes upward will. Sooner or later those unwanted things will wash out with your tears.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.”
