Real Vision

Have you ever thought about what life would be like if you went totally blind? When it's time for my annual vision check, I think about life and how it would change for me if my eyesight failed. My Grandmama was in her forties when she went totally blind, as a complication from diabetes. I would see her feeling her way through the house, and shuffling her feet so as not to trip and fall. I also saw her slip into a deep depression, although at the time I didn't know the word for it. My Grandmama losing her sight was the beginning of the end. Other health issues occured and she passed away at just sixty years old. But there is another blindness I think about also. When I was in sin, I was feeling my way through life and shuffling my feet and stumbling and falling. Sin had me blind, and I was going through the motions and down a road that I couldn't see was leading me straight to hell! But one day I got tired of being spiritually blind, and accepted God as my Savior, then the scales fell from my eyes. There was no more stumbling and trying to feel for what was in front of me. I can clearly see the path of righteousness I'm walking on, and even though satan tries to put stumbling blocks down this path, God has already showed me a way around them. I can see the future and my eternity. Sometimes life's problems may dim my spiritual eyesight, and I have to flush them out with what the word says, then I continue on my journey. I can see satan and recognize his tricks and antics; I just wipe my eyes and keep on keeping on. With my spiritual eyes I can see those who truly have a need. I can see those lost and need to be found. I can see those who just need someone to tell them everything is going to be alright. I can see a counterfeit because I have the real thing. I can see Jesus welcoming me home. I once was blind but now I see.
