“Not as man sees does God see…” 1 Samuel 16:7

“…I am the light of the world”.  John 9:5

Lord, many people who have cataracts removed from their eyes report they can see so much more than before the surgery.  They are amazed at how much better their vision becomes.  You gave physical sight to the man born blind.  More importantly you gave him the eyes of faith for he would begin to see who you really are and believe in you as his Lord.  His life was changed completely as your glory was made visible to him.  Lord, when I look only with my human eyes I miss so much.  But when I see the world and my life in it with the eyes of faith I see you and your works.  I can see the beauty of your marvelous creation.  I can see how you have blessed me in so many new and wonderful ways each day.  I can see your grace transforming my life and the lives of others.  I can even see the fruit of my suffering when I offer it to you.  Dear Jesus, help me to walk the path to your kingdom by your light.  Amen.
