The Heart Sees

"...having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what it the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe..."

Ephesians 1: 18-19 ESV

Last Monday I wrote about seeing with your heart. I was thinking in terms of understanding, artistic perspective, or seeing beyond the obvious. Later in the week, I read this verse in Ephesians and caught my breath. "...the eyes of your hearts..." Your heart sees. With eyes. Wow.

I cannot explain it or claim to understand. But I love this thought, and look forward to learning more about this. One comment on the Monday post said we should include a "heart-sense" in addition to the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Perhaps there are other senses we should be aware of, too? What do you think?


  1. eyes of the heart, eyes of the spirit, oh, the extra sense He gifts us with

  2. Hi Maureen
    I think it is only with our hearts that we are able to sense our Lord Jesus in any case in the first place!! Yes, this spirit sense is as far as I am concerned our most important sense.

  3. Sometimes the only sense I can have is His. If He doesn't pour it into me, I may go the wrong way, do the wrong thing. Holding Him, trusting Him... not much else can count in my life.

    Thanks for the Word and the photo. And your sharing portion. All works together "loverly".
