Don’t brag about your 20/20 vision. It doesn’t mean you can see perfectly. 20/20 is just a term describing how well you see at twenty feet. In England the doctor would say you have 6/6, meaning a distance of 6 meters not 20 feet.
20/20 or 6/6 means there is sharp vision at a specific distance. It does not rule out other eye problems like side vision or depth perception, or even colour blindness.
Glasses fix most of what we are missing.
I bring this up because we are in the year 2020, the year of clearer vision. Our years’ experience has been quite unusual. Can you see it for what it is? I believe it is a year that God is giving us to see clearly who he is and to prepare ourselves accordingly.
Johnny Nash wrote a song called “I can see clearly now.”
The song says that there is clear vision because the bad things had disappeared, while sunshine and rainbows persisted. Is that how you see 2020?
2020 is as bright as we choose to see it. In spite of the troubles we have endured, not everyone is depressed or sadly blue. Some of us see Christ in the middle of the trouble. This is the way of the believer. The happiest people don’t have everything but they do make the best of everything.
In years to come, we will be saying things like this. In hindsight, 2020 was my best year ever because I spent more time with my children. I learned to sew (okay so I made masks! I sewed))
The farther behind us a time gets the rosier the tint we remember. The vision for my 2020 is the same, it’s just deeper. In my 2020 I learned to trust Christ even more. What will your 2020 sound like in the future? Let this be the year that you announce to your family…in 2020, I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior.
Prayer- Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
