I Want to See

"What do you want Me to do for you?" 
Jesus asked. 
The blind man said, "I want to see."
Immediately he received his sight.  
Mark 10:51
This Scripture has impacted me this morning
in both the simplicity of the man's request
and the immediacy of Jesus' response.
Lord, I need to see today.
Not just the day as it unfolds before me, 
but You in this day.
I want to see you as I talk with Dave, with my kids, 
my students, as I teach my classes, 
as I meet with people, 
as I move through the doors that you will open-- 
the moments I am planning for 
and those that right now only You know. 
Help me value the moments, 
refusing the veil of familiarity
that blinds me to what You might want 
to do and say through my life today.
I pray that Your invisible realm
is the realm that I see most clearly today.
I want to see You.

  1. And may He give us the "Psalm 62" like courage to stand in what we see--both in the here and now and in what He reveals to us in the future. I am grateful that in this process of seeing we are bound together as covenant friends to rehearse His faithfulness, His promises and His provision. Thank you for being one of those "who will not be moved". xo
