Eye and I
Fleta R. Robinson
"If your right eye should cause you to stumble . . ." * Iím having an eye exam this morning. Tedious, but necessary. (Iím older and slower.)
Reading has always been a joy. Now itís sometimes cumbersome. Good focus seems reluctant. So Ė I came for help. Perhaps those beginning cataracts are past the "beginning" stage. "Lord, I lift up my eyes to You. . ." ^
Itís a physical problem that hopefully can be remedied.

Some conditions are much more serious, such as an I complex.
Response to lifeís circumstances, and to one another, can easily become full of a big ME. My accomplishments, my interests, my problems, my ailments; I want things done my way.
Do I ever confiscate a conversation to wrap around my opinions or experiences? Have you? Unfortunately (and without willful intent) that happens. What a bore that can be to others. Lord, I lift up my I to You.
It is a spiritual problem that God wants to remedy! By Godís grace and help Ė ditch the I complex.
"Letís forget about ourselves
And concentrate on Him,
And praise His Holy Name
Jesus Christ Ė Heís the Son of God."
(from a song by Bruce Ballinger)
* Matthew 5:26^ Psalm 123:1
