Day 28: Walking Blind


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?

Well I did & I would cheat

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 of

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, &he saw everything clearly." (Mark 8).

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 & touched the

ONE

Who sees beyond the trees

&

Who takes me beyond my blurred vision

when I

TRUST

&

BELIEVE

&

LISTEN

TO HIM.

Not once,

Not twice

but

Always!

THE TREES~

trusting what you can see & not Who you can't see.

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

Is it a person, place or thing?

Let's

FAST

from

THE TREES~

Every time your

TREE

blocks your vision

Reach out

&

TRUST

&

BELIEVE

&

LISTEN

TO HIM~

the

ONE

Who hung on a tree so that you can see~

"WE WALK BY FAITH NOT BY SIGHT" (II Corinthians 5:2)
