Sunday at church a lady made the comment that we never see or hear ourselves the way others do and I agree. For several weeks I have felt like a war was raging inside but I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong. I felt unexplainably distressed.
I called a friend, Bridgette, who knows me well and within 20 minutes, she gently asked me a pointed question, “You’re the most diligent person I’ve ever met. Do you think you’re believing that it’s wrong for Ali Dent to be less than perfect?”
Wow! I didn’t see that coming but she was right on target.
I paused, took a breath and asked her to tell me more about what she heard in my distress.
Since that conversation a week ago, I’ve spent every morning discussing this with Jesus. He’s an awesome listener and teacher:) What would I ever do without him and his children to lead me in the paths of righteousness?
I can’t see myself the way others do. I get off track and lose my way. It’s hard to walk on the straight and narrow path when I’m blind. Thanks be to God for putting me in a family of believers who love me enough to hold my hand and lead me out of the darkness and into the light.
Living Outside the Lines needs others to see the Way
How to you get help when you’re blind?
How do you help others when blindness grips them?
