“Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs.”
Gloria Furman shared a great prayer by Jonathan Edwards on a podcast I was listening to the other day. It was so helpful to me, especially on that particular day. Maybe it’ll be helpful to you on this particular day, too? The prayer says, “Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs.”
Gloria went on to say, “What Jonathan means by that is- he wants God to give him the vision for the things he’s doing in the moment…for the things that have happened in the past…He wants to see all that through the lens of the future.
He wants you to see that future Grace is running into you headlong, and that you can’t avoid it, and that we have eternity ahead of us…and that everything is done in light of that massive horizon that is looming. And that is so hard to see when you feel like (in certain situations, or on certain days) you’re going to lose your ever-loving mind. That kind of eternal perspective is something you need to carry around in your heart.”
And on our eyeballs. 😉 Praying peace over your heart and mind today, friends.
PS- Do you listen to ‘The Happy Hour‘, too? It’s my fav!
