I wish everyone could see with the eyes of God—with the eyes of love. I wish we could all set down hate, misconceptions, assumptions, and differences and choose to see the beautiful in each other. We’re all children of the same Creator, dwellers in the same universe. We should be the prisms through which love reflects itself outward and we should see others as those prisms that show us the beauty of what it means to be human. But, to see what God sees is a choice so often ignored even ridiculed. To see what God sees requires us to become vulnerable and to tear away those parts of ourselves that dwell in darkness. It becomes easier to shut out the light—to protect ourselves from the reality that can hurt our eyes and reveal our souls—the reality that we are, in fact, all beautiful and perfect in His eyes.
It’s a choice.
