As we go through life, there are opportunities that come our way, but some never see them, due to scotomas. A scotoma is what doctors refer to as a defect that blocks sight in one part of our visual field. It’s also a term that describes our failure to see what’s right in front of us, because we build our own mental blind spots. We have certain expectations and a belief system we deal with to make our decisions. What we believe will determine what we see. Have you ever looked at a new car and once you took interest in it, you started to see them everywhere? Sometimes you notice something out of place and you let it go and eventually you don’t see it anymore because you have developed a scotoma, or blind spot to it. We can begin to expand our beliefs or what has been conditioned in us since birth by embracing the Word of God that will cause us to grow, open our eyes and see the opportunities around us.
