And He (Jesus) caught the blind man by the  hand and led him out of the village, and when He has spit on his eyes and put His hands upon him, He asked him, Do you see anything?

And he looked up and said, I see people, but they look like trees walking.

Then He put His hands on his eyes again, and the man looked intently and he was restored, and saw everything distinctly - even what was in a distance.
                                    Mark 8:23-25

Are we looking at things right side up?  Are we looking at things from God's perspective?  In this world, sometimes it is difficult to see things clearly.  We allow our fears, hopes, anxieties and dreams to shape what we think we see. 

Because our thoughts can mislead us, we need to take those thoughts to God so we can SEE right side up, so we can think His thoughts about a matter.

What helps us think right side up?
Be still before God.
Take our thoughts and emotions to the Throne of God.
Listen to His still small voice which will speak into our hearts and give us peace.
Read His Word for instructions and comfort and…all we need to know.
Obey what He gives us to do.
Trust Him implicitly.

Jesus may need to touch our eyes many times to keep us seeing right side up, but let's go to Him as many times as needed for seeing aright.

Heavenly  Father, Please heal my 'sight' so I can see with Your eyes, think Your thoughts and act accordingly.  In Jesus'  name.  Amen.
