I cannot see, this is how it is always going to be, nothing has changed, black verses white, young lives lost, hatred in between, nothing new, de Javu. Their lies, they over flow, flooding the minds of our youth, their future, unknown, expectation has no meaning in their young life, hope is gone.
“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. “
I cannot see, this is how it is always going to be, nothing has changed, selfishness, greed, merciless, relentless, without remorse they are, the powers that be, hidden from their sheep that wander blindly, watch your step.
“Leave them; they are blind guides. I feel a blind man leads the blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
I cannot see, this is how it is always going to be, nothing has changed, their dark world gets on my one and only optic nerve, I drive, I swerve, I walk unsteady, I eat, calories loss, I sleep, not, “Lord I cry for help.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known to God. When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
I see now, this is how it is always going to be, for older I have become, I have seen much, wise I have become, His blessing to me for calling His name, “Lord help me please.” Things have changed, now, my once blurry vision He has restored for calling His name, a gift given, a gift received, I can see clearly now.
“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do, I will not forsake them.”
I can see now……

I love this. I will be turning 80 this month and am still learning.
Damon, one of the saddest scenes in scripture is when the rich young man comes to Jesus and asks how to be saved. In reply to Jesus, he says he keeps all the commandments (which is doubtful). However, Jesus knowing his heart and where his treasure lies, tells him to give away all he has to help the poor. The rich young man can’t do that and goes away. Jesus is sad but doesn’t follow him. God gives us the great and awful gift of free will. We can use that will to surrender to Jesus and, as you said, receive the gift of sight. Or we can use that gift to follow in our own blindness. I was blind until age 39 (now 76). I’m still a student at the master’s feet.
Thank you for this. It gives me hope for those who I love who still can’t see
