It is dark, extreme darkness. At least that is what they tell me. I having nothing to compare. I don't know what light is like. They say it is very bright, but then I don't understand bright either......
I was trying this morning to imagine what it would be like to be completely blind. I have been in complete darkness before, but I knew it was darkness and I knew what to expect when it was over. I have never before really thought about the fact that a blind person can't imagine what light and brightness are like.
As a sinner we live in darkness. However, we only realize the darkness when God calls us to see the light. When we realize our sin and our need for a Savior, it is then we begin to see the light.
As the light gets brighter, the former darkness becomes more apparent. With each comparison we become more thankful for the light.
As I reflect on the darkness of my past, I am more than ever thankful for the present light.
I was blind but now I see. I was dead but now I live.
Thank you Father, you are the light of this world. You are the great physician and healer. You provid food for the hungry soul. You are awesome God!
".... one thing I do know, I was blind but now I see!" John 9:25
Blessing to all,
