Each time I look through the lens of my camera, I ask myself...what does He see? What if He allowed me to look through His lens? How would I view this? Do I take this beautiful world for granted when I look at it?
I have an insane jealousy for my friends who live back East that get to see tremendous colors during the Fall. I never really thought of my little town as a very colorful place...until I asked myself these questions. So, I began to drive through town a few times a week, park the van and get out for a walk...with my Sony DLSR of course. He began showing me the beauty that really is right here in my community. I just needed to look 'Through His Lens'. Just look at the photos I am now decorating my blog with. These shots are from my little town. It's all a matter of perspective.
But not only did I ask myself these questions about the beauty of the physical world, but I asked the same question about the inward world. The inward of each person and each situation in life. Am I looking 'Through His Lens' at life? It's so easy to get caught up with the busyness of life, the laundry piles, dirty dishes, and fingerprints on the wall. But how does He view all this? I believe He looks beyond all that and straight into the heart. I believe He looks beyond the dirty laundry at the children who enjoyed jumping in the Autumn leaf piles. He looks beyond the dirty dishes to see the happiness communing over the dinner table. I believe He sees those fingerprints on the wall and says, "Enjoy those fingerprints, they grow up so fast."
Am I looking 'Through His Lens'?
Each Sunday I am going to host a meme so we can all link up to how He led us to look 'Through His Lens' whether it's through articles about family, faith, friends, or photography. You can link up anything you had that week where you looked 'Through His Lens'..or maybe you're having a difficult time looking through His lens that week and you post something you'd like encouragement for..from our bloggy friends.
