rose colored glasses

Originally uploaded by Kiki Karia.

Yesterday at our Wednesday night bible study, our pastor taught a beautiful lesson that has reminded me once again that God does indeed wear glasses. Glasses? Why would you think that God Almighty would even need glasses? He’s All Powerful, All Knowing,  and All Present. He sees everything, so why would He wear glasses? Pastor stated that when God looks on His children, He does not see us as the sinful beings we really are. But rather, He sees us through His blood. By nature, we are all depraved and sinful. Jeremiah 17:10 states that the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. But when Jesus died on the cross, He shed His precious blood for our sins. When we are born again of the water and the Spirit, His blood covers us and cleanses us (I John 1:7). Because of this, when God looks at me, he doesn’t see the old Karen. He is looking at me through His blood. An old Wayne Watson song came to mind last night as I was praying.

Rose Coloured Glasses
By: Wayne Watson

Heavenly Father–Have You got a moment
There’s something I don’t understand
How from Your window–Watchin’ Your children
You hold back the wrath of Your hand
Does Your window pane–Bear a lasting stain
That a sinful rain can’t wash away

Chorus

His gaze always passes thru rose coloured glasses
Everytime He looks on my heart
And thru love’s forgiveness
Thru purity’s fire
I am my God’s desire

Heavenly Father–Just one more question
I don’t mean to take so much time
But tell me–How much did it hurt You
To give from Your garden
The most lovely rose from Your vine
When the petals fell–When the colours ran
Was it then and there You first saw me holy

Chorus

His gaze always passes thru rose coloured glasses
Everytime He looks on my heart
And thru love’s forgiveness
Thru purity’s fire
I am my God’s desire

So you see, I think God does wear glasses, and I’m so thankful that He does!
