Open my eyes, that I may see the wonders of your law. — Psalm 119:18.
Often, our eyes are open but we don’t see. A friend needs help, but we wonder why he/she hasn’t called. A neighbor is sick, but we wonder why their lawn has gone to seed. Our spouse is irritable and one wonders why, rather than seeing the spouse is living in constant pain. The psalmist ask that his eyes be opened so he can see wonders. How often do we see the ugly and miss the beautiful.
I ask God for so much, but a small request to “Open my Eyes” seems okay.
