Re: eye opening experience, growth
On Sunday, the minister talked about a story in the Bible where Jesus chose a blind man and gave him sight. He said after, “I was blind but now I can see”.
He preached about Jesus coming to a town. When the people saw Jesus, many people begged and pleaded for his help except for a blind man. In fact, as the story goes, it was Jesus who chose this man. There were those from the town who felt as if this blind man was not worthy enough, but Jesus saw differently. He chose a person who was blind since birth, who never expected anything. Jesus chose this man out of all the people who were there, to be healed.
It can be eye-opening to see how you can be chosen to do something that you never expected. A lot of people go to college for one thing and do something different after. Most of us have some kind of natural talent or can do something in which comes to us naturally. Having children and raising them is a new experience for every first-time parent. Think of all the first experience that you have had in life? Have you ever been chosen to do something that you have never done before? Anyone of us can be chosen, or given a chance in life when we least expect. You can be healed not knowing that there is a problem. At work, the boss may choose you for an opportunity to do something that we never have done. Every day things happen all around us, it is a chance to do things differently. Just like the blind man, you can be chosen and your life will be changed. I guarantee you will see things differently.
