    129: Open Your Eyes to What’s in Front of You

    129: Open Your Eyes to What’s in Front of You

    Today, I share a supernatural lesson from the Lord about spiritual eyes. In 2007, I had done a lot of traveling as Texas Teacher of the Year.  Much of that travel was staying in rooms with unappealing views and I told myself a story I spent 15 years believing.  A few weeks ago, I went to Orlando, Florida and in the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed my attitude remained until God opened my eyes.  We can easily go through life believing a story you or someone else told you that is limiting your ability to see the beauty directly in our face.
