New things make you feel like you’re a new person, right? They make you see things in a different light. They can turn your whole life around.
They make you feel brand new.
I had to get new glasses today, since I’ve been living with broken ones for the past two months. Those old ones were only seven months old, and my dad felt like it was a waste for me to buy new lens (since it was only the frame that was broken). Those lenses didn’t even last a year, and my dad has used the same glasses for years.
We went to the optical shop near our house, and I got my eyes checked. Even for me, it was a bit of a waste since the grade didn’t change and it was only the angles for the astigmatism that changed (I don’t remember the exact term, but the doctor mentioned angles). But as I got those new glasses and tried them on, I felt like I was a new person. I’m not kidding. It’s lighter than my old ones, very flexible, and the fit is perfect.
I guess it’s the same with God. Sometimes you would need retreats and recollections, and once you’re done, you are spiritually high and you feel brand new. You’re back to God, and it feels great. Your life has changed and you see things in a different light.
I saw God in my new glasses today, and I thank Him for making me see His creation with a clearer vision.
