Day 23: Seeing is Believing


Have you ever played the game

Blind Man's Bluff~

Trusting the one who is guiding you

Or

Follow the Leader~

Following the one who is leading you

Or

Marco Polo~

Listening to the one who is calling your name?

I did

& always cheated

especially when

playing Marco Polo...

Not only because I didn't want to smash my head into the side of the pool

because I was swimming with my eyes closed,

but also because I wanted to win.

Cheating to win

Hmm

Does that mean I really be would the winner?

Playing Blind Games of Trust

Blindness

The Blind Man

Whose eyes Jesus touched and asked~

“Do you see anything?”

The blind man responded:

“I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

The blind man~

still focused on his blurred vision instead on the One who made him see.

Jesus had to touch him a second time~

Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes.

Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

No longer seeing trees!

This wasn't a game

He was blind and now he sees

Life isn't a game~

I was blind

because I was so focused on the trees,

on what I could see

which made me

cheat my way through life

by trusting other things to help me see.

But now I see

because I reached out and touched the

One

Who sees beyond the trees

and

Who takes me beyond my blurred vision

when I

Trust

Believe &

Listen

to Him...

Not once

But twice...

Always!

What "tree" blinds you from seeing and experiencing all Who Jesus is?

Is it a person, place or thing?

Trees: trusting what you can see and not who you can't!

We walk by

FAITH

not

by sight.

II Corinthians 5:2

So

Let's Fast from our

Trees...

Every time your "tree" blocks your vision

Reach out and

Trust

Believe &

Listen

to

the One

Who hung on a tree

so

that you can see!
