I Can’t See…



I literally couldn’t see while driving the kids to school last week in the morning more than one car in front of me.   Which got me to thinking…

I can’t see what awaits me later today.

I can’t see what awaits me later this week.

I can’t see what awaits me tomorrow.

I can’t see what awaits me ahead.

But I want to see.   I want to know it is all going to work out.

Yet, I know in my heart that it always does.   But, my heart is seeking to be comforted that everything ahead is going to work out right now.

Funny how new things bring out the little fears in us.    Or even the big ones.

The unknown is where our faith is tested.    What I can’t see I must trust in His faithfulness to lead me to wherever I need to be or do next. 

How many times have we all said this verse?   "For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Or how many times have we sung the song Amazing Grace and the lyrics, “was blind, but now I see”?

What causes us to see?   What causes us to be able to walk by faith?   What allows us to hold on when everything before is too hard to understand?

The faithfulness of God.   The promise maker and keeper.   The holder of all our tomorrows.  The carrier of our burdens.  The ONE who catches every tear that falls.  The ONE who knows our name and every hair on our head.  The ONE who longs to be our all in all.  The ONE who is simply waiting for us love Him more than everything else.

It is by the grace of God, that we can see once we ask Him into our hearts and to be the LORD of our lives.  

It is by the grace of God, that we are able to handle the trials we must face. 

It is by the grace of God, that we are able to do anything that will withstand the fire of all our deeds. 

Because of God.   I only need to see right here, right now, what is right before me.

Because God is the lamp unto my feet, and will direct me on the good path.   He will not let my feet slip and He will strengthen my feeble knees. 

I believe this to be true.   But I found out when I was faced with the thickness of the fog last week, that I have moments of doubt, hours of questioning, days of misunderstandings, and weeks of frustration.    Because I’m trying to see something that my eyes are not ready to focus on.  

Which steals my joy, peace, laughter, and ability to bloom right where I am.

It takes my eyes and mind off of God and onto myself. 

Which steals His grace from me.  

Because God gives grace to the humble and resists the proud. (Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6)


That is all I need to know.   God, is more than enough.   He will always be right here ready to meet my needs, perfectly (in His timing and in His way).  

So, today if you are struggling to see the good in the situation you find yourself in, or worried about how you will get through today, or what you must face tomorrow.   I ask you to lay it all down and allow God to be God in your life.   I pray you will join me in letting go of the need to know and simply trust in the God who holds your very next breath in His hands. 

Wishing you all a blessed day and saying a prayer for each of you!
