LSOF: Movie Clip Monday #2 ( “At First Sight”)

I am really supposed to be traveling to my mom’s for fahitas in Deltona…but I wanted to stop and write my heart out a little.

The movie I chose for today is one that is probably one of the most powerful ones I have ever seen, and it makes me think of the verse,

” So we fix our eyes not what is seen, but what is unseen, for what is seen is only temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”(2 Cor 4:18)

This verse couldn’t be more fitting at this day and time.

I have recently had a lot experience in this, but the results were exactly as the verse promised.

People are human. People let you down. People cannot always be trusted to be teachers of the truth.
People are selfish. People carry their loads of baggage with them. People watch out for themselves.
People live their past in front of them. People intimidate to make you feel bad about yourself.
People don’t know you. God KNOWS you. You CAN SEE people, but you can’t SEE God.

Things break. Things are replaceable. Things don’t go with you when you die. Things can’t heal us of life problems. Things never completely can satisfy us.

After reading the verses below, please watch the clip of the movie, ” At First Sight” to me that holds the greatest biblical message.

If you were blind, and suddenly could see…but knew it was temporary…how would you feel?

I am also reminded of Ecclesiastes.

Ecclesiastes 1
Everything Is Meaningless
1 The words of the Teacher, [a] son of David, king in Jerusalem:

2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.”

3 What does man gain from all his labor
at which he toils under the sun?

4 Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.

5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.

6 The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.

7 All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.

8 All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.

9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

10 Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.

11 There is no remembrance of men of old,
and even those who are yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow.

I present to you the movie, ” At First Sight”

  1. I love the comment that people live their pasts in front of them. It is so true. We build our path forward based on stones we either laid ourselves behind us or ones we had no say over. Thank you for sharing this post. It really speaks to me. My pastor is going through Ecclesiastes. God is really using these verses in my life right now.

  2. Katie- Thanks for stopping by:) I think I remember you on the LPM commenting:) I am right with you sister, He is teaching me as much as you!:) Love that!
