One day my eyes opened, and I saw God everywhere I looked. When I say everywhere, I mean in every intricate detail of my life experience. On that day, I caught a glimpse beyond the physical world of flesh and blood. I saw the glory of God, who is the creating and sustaining Source of all that is.
I saw with spiritual eyes, the One who created everything before and beyond the limitations of time. I captured in a moment the awesome truth of the indescribable majesty that Isaiah encounters and rocks his being to the core when he perceives the presence of God in the Holy of Holies.
The Apostle Paul describes being caught up in the third heaven and seeing things so wondrous he could only say no eye has seen nor ear heard the things God has prepared for us that love Him. Now when I look at the world, I no longer only see the wonder of the physical world but also the majesty of the One who holds the universe and everything in it together.
One day my eyes opened, and I saw God everywhere I looked. I never went back to my old outlook on life.
