I watched two or three pretty raunchy movies this week. They weren't so raunchy that I had to turn them off, but there were some scenes throughout the movies that definitely made me uncomfortable and I had turn my head until they were over.
I know what you're wondering. What movies? Right? Well, I'm not telling you because I don't want you to think that I'm judging you for watching them or condemning you for not having a problem with them like I did. They're pretty popular movies that just about everyone has seen.
Anyway, the night after I watched these movies I had a vivid, disgusting, illicit dream that made me so physically sick that I woke myself up dry heaving and praying. And that woke my husband up.
The next day, my husband asked, "Do you think your nightmare was because of the movies? Do you think you'll be able to watch anymore of them?" I told him I wasn't sure and I really wasn't sure. But I admitted that I didn't want to watch any more movies and he was supportive.
Then the next day, as I was reading the Bible passages I was supposed to read for that day in the One Year Bible, I came upon this verse by chance or rather, by design.
“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" Matthew 6
This verse was so timely. It lead me to realize there is an actual connection between my physical body and my spirit. Good or bad, what I do with my physical eyes is spiritually pervasive, so I must take care.
