Looking through His eyes...

One thing I have really been working on is viewing things from other people’s eyes. I am that kind of person who ‘makes sure she understands everyone’s view’. I have noticed people can be quick to judge (I don’t want to be like that) and will only see one side of a situation. For example, I knew a girl who was struggling with seeing herself as beautiful. She was one of those girls that others would see as a girl who’s obsessed with boys. One who would always try to make herself look good, even though many found it annoying! Always trying to find a new guy to date, even though she was only thirteen. Many people would say to me “She’s really wired… so full of herself… etc” . But I took a step back and really looked at her with her eyes. I knew her pretty well and understood why she did what she did without her even saying it herself… She was hurt, grew up without a dad, although many men would date her mum. Her mum did drugs and she was looking for that attention from someone, for someone to love her and tell her she was beautiful… Like any girl wants to know!!
After I had said this to that person that was quick to judge, they also stepped back and had a look at their prospective. You see, when you choose to see things in another’s eyes, then you start to understand them.

Although I have come to a point where I realise it can seriously be hard, especially when one person can be hard to understand… and that’s when you go to The Lord for help!!! I found it hard to understand a girl I knew… Many also found it hard!! I found it hard to see her side, but easier to see what others would say about her. I tried to get to know her but found it very difficult because of her personality. I guess we all know that one person we just can’t stand and don’t understand..!!?! As mum would always say “There’s always a Mrs Olsen in every town”, for those that have seen Little House on the Prairie… We just have to handle them like Mrs Ingles did, with love!! No matter how annoying they can be… Asking God to show you how He sees them!! One good question to always ask yourself is WWJD (What would Jesus Do)? 

One of my fave songs by Brandon Heath called Give Me Your Eyes says, “Give me Your eyes for just one second, Give me Your eyes so I can see,”. And that's what we've got to do... Is ask God to give us eyes to see what he sees.. When seeing someone with God’s eyes, you feel love and forgiveness towards them…  It’s true!! I guess I have learnt to no matter what, treat others with love!! And their is always goodness in everyone, sometimes you just have to search a little harder and ask God to help you… Because all of us are a child of God and we shouldn’t feel hate against each other!!
Luke 6:27-36 is an awesome verse that helps and encourages me to love others. Even though they may hurt you!! I love the New King James Version as it says ““To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person...” This verse is so true and defiantly something to live by!! 

So just remember whenever you’re in one of those situations of not understanding how one acts… Then ask God!! Ask Him “How do you see this person?”, read the bible and He will help you show love and kindness to others!
