What would it be like to suffer from blindness? To be unable to enjoy or even imagine the colors of the mountains in the fall, or see the face of a loved one as they walk down the aisle, or take in the breathtaking scenery of the sunset. Like blinders on a horse’s bridle or a veil draped over someone’s eyes - is also the effects of anyone who may be suffering from spiritual obtuseness.

How can it be possible that God promises to actively be working in the daily affairs of our lives, and we miss it - or at worst miss Him? Wouldn’t it be ill-fated to have eyes to see, and miss the opportunity to see God at work. How about the chance of witnessing a loved one stricken with a disease walk out of the hospital, or watch a young child pray for His father who fell off a ladder, and survived?

You know, it would seem better at times to be physically blind than to be spiritually imperceptive. It is said; that the average person with physical blindness possesses heighten sensitivity towards the need for others, human touch, and an incredible sense of acute hearing. I invite you today to remain sensitive towards what God is doing. He did promise to give sight to the blind.

Matthew 9:27-30

27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied.

29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored.

During the holidays I’ve always enjoyed pulling out the hammer or finding that double-edged nutcracker to smash through the hard shell of the walnut. Or, taking the time each day to crack open two large eggs and frying them “over-easy” to begin my early morning journey? Just like the egg, and the walnut sometimes we have to break through the hard shell of fear and shame to find the true ingredients of our worship.

Most of us, unfortunately, express our most sincere acts of adoration when we are most vulnerable. When it seems that the future looks dim, and it’s hard to find reasons to give thanks - is when our spiritual resilience wrestles to find that light of hope which we need to guide us through each day. The Bible speaks about a woman who learned to surrender to God in the midst of her struggles. A woman wrestling to erase her darkened past - concluded by breaking an expensive bottle of perfume and anointing the feet of Christ symbolizing the fragrance of her best act of worship.

If today, you find yourself struggling to find direction or hope don’t fight any longer. Just surrender to God, and allow for Him to take His rightful place as Lord of your life. Your total surrender may be the only act God is waiting for.


Luke 7:37-38

37A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. 38As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them, and poured perfume on them.

Have you ever experienced a part of your anatomy going numb? Or, have you attempted to stand up from your seat while the flow of blood has been cut off from your limbs? Isn’t it the strangest, if not funniest scene to witness someone attempting to posterize themselves while balancing on what seems to be “two left feet?” So, it is when you and I are attempting to keep a straight face while spiraling into an emotional coma.

Apathy is a silent assassin, and It’s almost impossible to be effective at anything if you and I are being desensitized or paralyzed by our lack of zeal. Most people who have lost any permanent loss of feeling is usually paralyzed or dead. So, losing the love for what you do, or anyone you love may put you in danger of an unexpected involuntary termination. Keep your spiritual fervor in place, and persevere under every circumstance so that you will receive your end reward.

God desires for you to live with empathy, rather than to suffer from apathy!

Colossians 3:23-25

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
