I Can Now See
By My Son Christopher Thomas Brock
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
Do you ever feel like you have failed? Do you ever think about all the things that you have done wrong and how many times you have fallen short? For me I always fight the temptation to think about the past, and how many times I have made mistakes. I remember hearing a story of a girl who was born blind. Doctors realized later in her life that the reason she could not see was actually able to be corrected. So she went through a surgery and soon after she began to wake up. For the first time in her life she began to see colors and shapes. She saw the faces of those that she loved. She saw trees, flowers, animals, clouds, and everything that we take for granted each day. She could now appreciate everything that she saw, all the things that we take for granted each day. This is very similar to what happens when we give our hearts to Jesus. Our eyes, our ears, and all our senses are opened for the first time. We realize the purpose that God has given to us. We understand the value that our lives have and we also understand that we are truly loved without any condition. We realize that there is nothing that we need other than Him and the grace that He extended to us on the cross. We may think back and wonder why God didn’t allow us to see Him earlier. We may want to ask “why didn’t you find me sooner Jesus?” The answer is that Jesus wants to bless you abundantly. So if you have been saved today after being blind for so long, praise Jesus because He has given you the most beautiful gift that can be given. He has saved you, He has justified you, He has restored you, and He has taken you from the dungeon to the throne room to sit with Him as His princess! Rejoice! Rejoice! Make God first in your life and let Him lead you to your home in Heaven.
