Day 17: Blind Sight


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 would be 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, and 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~

cheating myself 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

FOLLOW

&

LISTEN

to HIM~

Not once

Not twice

but

Always

so that HE continues to UNLEASH me

into a world where I SEE HIM

beyond the trees.

The Trees~

TRUSTING what you can SEE and not WHO you can't~

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,

since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:18)

What "tree" BLINDS you from seeing and experiencing all Who JESUS is?

LIVE UNLEASHED~

"For we live by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7)

For

"FAITH SEES BEST IN THE DARK" (listen to the song below)
