What Losing My Right Contact Lens Taught Me

Friday October 28, 2016

Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. -Psalm 95:6


Wednesday, I had less than a stellar day. It wasn’t the worst day ever, but like I said it wasn’t stellar. There were a lot of things that were wearing on my heart emotionally, and spiritually.

I now only rely on my contact lenses to see, because I accidentally snapped my glasses in half the other day. So, I now take my contacts out right before I go to bed, and I put them in my case, on my night stand.

However, Wednesday night I accidentally dropped my right contact. At that point, I had already taken out my left contact. So, I was officially blind…looking for a contact in carpet. I got down on my knees rubbing my hands in the carpet, squinting, hoping to find it so I could just climb into bed.

Then, I stopped. I stopped frantically searching. It dawned on me where I was, and what position I was in. I was beside my bed on my knees, face to the floor. God spoke vividly to me in that moment. That is exactly where He had wanted me all day. It took me losing my right contact, for me to finally get into that position.

I believe that my less than stellar day, would have indeed been stellar if I would have started it on my knees in prayer before God, or continued that way throughout the day.

Friend, don’t wait until your contact lens goes missing before you get down on your knees before the Lord. He is waiting. Stellar things happen when we cry out in complete surrender to Jesus.

If you’re wondering…I did find my right contact on the bottom of my nightstand, while I was down on my knees. I bet if you spent some time down on your knees, you would probably find a lot of answers you’ve been searching for too.

Prayer: “God, help me to constantly drop to my knees when searching for answers. I acknowledge that I do not seek you enough in this way. In your name I pray, Amen!”
