Sometimes it's a blessing and other times.... I'm not quite sure.....
Remember the song, "Open the eyes of my heart Lord"? Have you ever prayed that? Open my eyes and let me see people as you do?" And, if God does... how do you handle it? Is it always a good thing or just at times?
As some of you may already know, The Lord gives me and my husband both dreams and visions. Which is a blessing, regardless of the situation because when you come right down to it, whether you like what you see or not, you're being shown for your own good and/or for a reason. There are times where I receive visions or dreams and I am not released to speak of until God releases me to do so.
Anyway, God has really opened my eyes to people, their hearts, desires, motivations and intentions and what have you. I would say about 98% of the time, I know if a person is up to no good I know it pretty quick. There is that 2% where I don't catch it or I dismiss the red flags as "me, just not trusting people" as I am known for. But regardless, I give them a chance just to find out I should have listened to my instincts or what I prefer to call, "discernment".
But what about those flags you can't speak of and you have to wait and watch? Makes you wonder, don't it? Although some things are better spoke of, some things have to remain unsaid and that bites, but it is what it is.
All that being said.... Just never underestimate anyone and NEVER take meekness or kindness for weakness or silence as a sign of ignorance which means a lack of knowledge and/or information.
Here is me and my husband singing, "Do you hear what I hear?" and a beautiful song my husband wrote for our babies immediately after on the video so watch it till the end.
Until Next Time
