I was driving this morning and this thought came to me.
How different would our lives be if we were all blind?

I know, kinda a crazy thought. However I have learned
to sit and be still when these thoughts come to me.

So there in my SUV I became very quite, turned off the CD
and just was. Here is what came next..

If we were all blind we would not rely
so heavily on that which we ONLY  see

It would BE essential to our survival to rely and TRUST
what we did not see.  

I know it’s only 8:38 a.m.. I am already over my head.

I am still thinking and pondering this
thought. I know It’s going to lead
me to truth. I know it!  

I open my book Super Mind and what do I read?

“It’s critical that you begin to see yourself
NOT as you see yourself, but as God sees you,
because you will never rise above your self-image.”  

Wow! Now I gasping for air..

The only way to see ourselves as God sees us is to
be “blind” letting go of what WE see and trusting so heavily
on what HE who made us sees.

Our own sight can be so damn limiting..
He made Us has no limits.  

Strength and Honor,
JoAnn...

    • Interesting.
      I actually did a “Woman Within” weekend back in Nov 98 (I can explain that later if anyone’s curious) where one of the things we did was a ‘trustwalk.’
      Blindfolded, walking in the woods & the only thing I really had to rely on was sound and knowing someone was right in front of me. This walk was long.
      It was very interesting to me to realize how much trust someone who is blind has to have or contend with. They have no choice really BUT to have to trust in that totally different way. It actually made me nauseous for some time.
      To this day when I see a blind person, I’m amazed by how much they have to trust in ways that we do not.

    • God works in mysterious ways. When we‘re given great weaknesses, we also given great strengths. It is amazing how in other area’s we learn excel.

    • Hey Ladies,  

      I am turning this dag gone thing
      off for a few.. I saw I had some
      comments.  

      I want to say Thanks for your time
      and I am soooo happy to share hope
      with others!  

      It’s what has brought
      me this far.

    • tO jENZ41,

      I had a blind friend. She has
      since left “school house earth”

      I loved being with her. I loved being
      her eyes when she needed.  

      I remember once in my pool, yep she
      allowed myself and another friend
      to help her in my pool and we spent the day
      on floats, drinking some cocktails and just
      being girlfriends. I got out of the pool
      to grab something we were laughing and having
      fun and Kathy said (my blind friend) Hey JoAnn
      am I smiling.. I looked over and yes she was because
      she was having so much fun and she knew it.
      Boy did she trust us!  

      Thanks for the trip down memory lane Jenz41

      Jo
