Eyes That See – Good News for December 5

5 12 2008

Matthew 9: 27-31

As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Son of David, have pity on us!” When he entered the house, the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” 

“Yes, Lord,” they said to him. 

Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.” And their eyes were opened. 

Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.”  But they went out and spread word of him through all that land. 

The Daily Path: Friends, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers today. The path will be rocky and my burden is heavy. Help me to keep the faith and trust in God to lead me along. (UPDATE 12/6: Thank you to everyone who took a moment to ask God to accompany me yesterday in my hour of need. He answered your prayers and mine. Thank you, God. For you skeptics lurking in the bushes… God listens. Believe in his love and mercy.)

Advent Meditation: Blessed are all who wait for the Lord
