Jesus Eyes.

Posted: November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

A few years ago I read a book by Karen Kingsbury, called Divine.  The part of that book that really spoke to me was when one of the main characters referred to people with faith as having “Jesus eyes.”  Here’s an excerpt:

“There’s something different in the eyes of people with faith. I can see it, but I can’t figure out what it is. You called it Jesus eyes.” Nigel smiled. “It’s the Holy Spirit. When people give their lives to Christ, He gives them His Spirit. It breathes from the center of the soul, giving life to the heart and shining bright through the eyes of believers.”

I remember thinking to myself, WOW, how amazing it would be to have Jesus eyes!  I’ve thought about it on and off; especially when I see people with those “eyes.”  But it never became more clear than the other night when I was washing my face before bed. When I looked up in the mirror after drying my face, I thought to myself, “hmmmm you look….different….something about my eyes…”  I studied for a minute..looked this way and that and then….it hit me.  I have Jesus Eyes.  “I” have Jesus eyes!

I can’t explain to you in words, really, the experience I had, but it was amazing.  I hope to continue to see “Jesus eyes” every time I look in the mirror, and more importantly, I hope others see it too!
