My eight-year-old slipped down the slope of the high, curb-less street and somehow caught herself before tumbling into the steep ditch. The innocent fun of walking with her eyes closed suddenly halted as she slid over that edge. A little shaken, she came over to my friend and me, and held our hands as we walked. I glanced to see if she needed a comforting word. To my surprise, she was firmly nestled between us, smiling, and taking in the breeze with her eyes closed again!
Smart girl! The fall did not deter her. She simply realized that she needed a safe place. We are all walking blind in this world, unable to see the path we take, the pitfalls ahead, or where the path leads. But we can control one thing. We can run to our Heavenly Father, wedge ourselves between him and Jesus, and take the hand of the Holy spirit. In this trusted space, blindness is no threat.
“He knows the way that I take, and when he has tried me, I will come forth as gold.” – Job 23:10.
