Lent: Day 34 –‘Teacher, let me see again.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your faith has made you well.’ Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way. Mark 10:46-52
Blind Bartimaeus wanted to see again. This tells us that at some previous point in his life, he did have sight and by some turn of event lost it. We all occasionally lose our way. It is easy in this world to be distracted by our hurt feelings, disappointments and frustrations. It is fortunate for us that God knows the heart that is left to tears and outcries of despair. Listen and take heart! The Savior’s journey travels every path that we take and calls us to once again to follow him in his path of light to resurrection and glory.
2 Corinthians 4:13-18 So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.
Psalm 43 O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy; and I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
