I want my sight

The Manufacturer’s manual is full of many stories that challenge our thinking and the norm. Many times We have heard or asked the question, ‘if there is a God, why is there so much suffering?’.  That question has bothered me a few times but  I know there is always an answer to every question if we dare to look for it.

‘Lord Son of David, Have mercy on us’ shouted two blind men seated by the road as Jesus was passing by . They were blind men, obvious to all who cared to look at them.  Angrily the crowd shouted ‘Keep quiet’. How many times do people around us help to promote the ‘status quo’ by preventing us from asking for help.

They shouted louder ‘Lord Son of David, Have mercy on us. At this point, the Master stopped to ask ‘what can I do for you?’. This is the bit that gets me whenever I read this story. Couldn’t  He have just offered to heal them seeing that they were blind. ‘They may not have wanted their sight back’ a friend once commented. They may have preferred to stay blind and attract sympathy, handouts etc.

‘Lord we want you to us our eyesight back‘, they replied. Persistence paid off despite the put down. We need to verbalise our needs clearly and make assumptions and presumptions. At the request, he touched their eyes, their sight was restored and they followed Him.

What  lessons can be derived from this:

  • Don’t give up asking for help despite opposition
  • State clearly what you want
  • Be grateful for receiving, follow the giver of life.

Some of us need to have our spiritual sight and vision  restored and I believe as we meditate on this story, it will surely happen.  We need to be clear on what we want. Many varieties of vision boards, seminars, books, apps have been developed on similar topic.

  2. Hello!
    That’s my favorite text you’d written down. Sometimes we want God to tell us what to do, to give us a sign etc. But the most important is we have a law from God to do whatever we like and enjoy to do and we have to just find it out by ourselves. Then we can ask God to help us, because we already know our purpose of life.
    I really like this website, the texts touch my feelings. I’m sure i’ll come back here in the future to read your new articles.
