When You See More with Your Eyes Closed

“Then Jesus told him, ‘because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’” (John 20:29)

Intracranial Hypertension causes some wicked vision issues. I so often wish I could take a snapshot or video of what I see when I close my eyes. I want to be able to share it. It can be mind-blowing.

Sometimes I just see little fireflies blinking around, or a static kind of look. That’s when my eyes are open. But when I close my eyes a whole new world opens up. I get kaleidoscopes. Or sometimes I get the old Superman movie reel effect, when the newspapers were scrolling by really fast and showing the headlines.

You’ve seen that, right? Sometimes I get fireworks. Other times it’s like a sunburst effect.

If my eyes are open in the pitch dark, it’s pitch dark. But when I close my eyes, something beautiful happens. I see a light source–like it’s coming from off to the side. Often, I open my eyes to make sure it’s not really there in real life. Nope, only when I close my eyes.

Faith is like that, too.
