729th -- Moist Eyes


As we go through life we should always keep in mind that tomorrow is 
promised to no man. We must live each day to the full and realize that God
has given us a short time on this earth to be an example of His love and 
forgiveness and lead all men to the saving truth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
With all that you are able, make a special point to live peaceably among 
all men letting them see the love that you offer and letting them feel the
love of God that comes from your heart. Do all you can to be a positive 
representative of Christ and when the opportunity presents itself for you
to be helping, do so with great expectancy that God will bring great 
results because of your intervention. (James 4:13-14) (1 Corinthians 3:8-10)

We should also remember that we will reap exactly what we sow. We should
never go through life holding grudges or be unforgiving towards those who
have done something wrong against us, but rather we must remember that we
as representatives of Christ and followers of His command must lead our 
life by example. We must forgive all those who have done something wrong
against us and let them know that just as God has forgiven us of our great
sins, we also extend the same forgiveness to those who have done wrong 
against us. (Galatians 6:7) (Mark 11:25-26) (Matthew 18:21-35) (Romans 12:20-21)

Never forget the simple truth that we will all stand before God on our 
Judgment Day and give an account of our life on the earth. Our ultimate 
goal is to love God with all of our heart and love our neighbor as 
ourselves. Always try to remember the end result of life and if you need
to, reevaluate how you are treating others because that is ultimately what
we will be remembered for. (Revelation 20:12) (Matthew 22:37-40) (James 1:27)

I hope this simple message encourages your heart to live each day to the 
best of your ability encouraging yourself and others that life may 
sometimes be difficult, but God's grace is promised to be sufficient for 
all men.


I find that my eyes are watering up more often lately. They were wet when I
got my daughter ready for her prom recently. I felt my vision get a little
blurry too just the other day when I watched an old home movie with my mom
in it. These days I even find them getting moist from certain songs I hear,
stories I read, and thoughts I have. Some think I am getting sentimental in
my middle years. I think I am just getting wiser and more in touch with 
God’s love.

Not all of my tears are loving and joyful ones, either. I have had tears of
sadness while holding my own crying son because there wasn’t anything I 
could do to ease the frustration his Autism causes. I have had tears of 
grief when first my Mom and then my Grandma died. I have even had tears of
empathy in seeing the suffering that so many people in this world are going
through every day.

Even with the moist eyes and mixed feelings, however, I wouldn’t change who
I am today. I have more love in my heart and joy in my soul than ever 
before. I have found too that it is our own caring souls that God uses to
help heal the world. It may open us up to more pain and suffering, but God
always gives us the strength, love, and goodness to handle it. It may give
us a few more tears, but God makes sure that most of them are ones of joy,
compassion, and kindness.

It is far better to have wet eyes and a warm, loving heart than dry eyes 
and be dead on the inside. Don’t be scared to let your eyes go moist then.
Those tears will clear your vision to see God’s spirit in everyone you 
meet. Those tears will open your heart to all the love that God wants to 
bless you with. Those tears will strengthen your soul so that you can bring
joy, compassion, and healing to all those around you. God gave you tears to
ease your pain and tears to express your joy. Use them both to make this 
world a better place.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Ephesians 4:29-32 “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, 
but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace 
unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are 
sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and 
anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all 
malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one 
another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

Deuteronomy 10:18-21 “He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and 
widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye 
therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. Thou 
shalt fear the LORD Thy God; Him shalt thou serve, and to Him shalt thou 
cleave, and swear by His name. He is thy praise, and He is thy God, that 
hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”

Romans 15:1-4 “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the
weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour
for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as 
it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on Me. For
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, 
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
