Was blind but now I see

The Lord has really opened my eyes to things I never quite noticed before and although I have brought this up briefly in one of my previous posts I just want to touch briefly on what I mean by this statement. Let me take you through the workings of my mind right now

These are all things that I have overlooked previously, or chose not to see because I was too concerned with my own life, and my own problems.


So here is a few of the things I now see, and it is like I have some extra vision that these things that previously went unnoticed are now in full view for me to see.


I see the little boy who lost his father when he was young and lives with a mother that locks him indoors when he has been naughty

I see the mother sitting on the street with her little baby begging for money for food

I see the teenager with no future because he has lived on the street all his life

I see the father and his son running for a taxi with heavy suitcases because they don’t have a car

I see the young girl running out of church on a Sunday with tears streaming down her face don’t know why

I see the old lady tired standing at her car digging in her bag for 15 minutes and she can’t find her keys

I see the security guard being fired for switching the electric fence off to remove something that had fallen on the fence

I see the lady in my office trying desperately for a baby but does not realise that God is the only answer

I see my brother who is trying his best to keep his business running and asks for a little help from me but I am getting annoyed with him

I see my mother who did the best she could with the little she had, and I did not appreciate it

I see the elderly lady standing on the street corner and I always wind up my window

I see the lady who realises that she is in the wrong lane in traffic and cuts in front of me and I get annoyed

I see the cleaners at work who probably earn a 3rd of what I do make a living and yet I complain because I do not have enough


This is just some of what I see; every day the list gets longer.  What is it that you see?


I want to help, but where do I start? So how about 1 person at a time and 1 day at a time.


Prov. 19:17 – When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord–and he pays wonderful interest on your loan!
