It’s Friday! Time for Lisa Jo’s 5 minutes.
Here are the rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
This weeks word is See:
I was blind, but now I see. I understand that there are many, many, many people that don’t see, that don’t see now, or that may never see. Yet I don’t understand it. I remember many years ago, as a new Christian, I had a friend that couldn’t see. I showed him, but he couldn’t see. I ended up throwing my Bible at him and saying, “but it’s all there! How can you not see it?” (I know good Christian example there, huh?)
I haven’t seen him in many years, I pray that he sees it today.
I wonder, well, really I know when I get deep down, God’s sovereignty is beyond my comprehension. But I do wonder, why some can see, and why others can’t. I mean some people STUDY Biblical “literature” and don’t see it. Others, in small villages in third world countries who can barely read see it. How????
It’s a mystery. God is a mystery. But I trust him to know what he’s doing. My job is to tell people about him. I stopped throwing Bibles at people many, many years ago. My job is to tell people about the amazing Gospel, the amazing peace, the amazing victory that they can have in Christ.
I pray they see, but it’s his job to change them.
