Seems easy

While my type of blindness does not leave me totally in the dark, there are times when I cry out to God, ask for mercy, and ask ‘that I may see’. In Mark’s story where the blind beggar Batimaeus receives his sight, Mark makes the healing seem so easy. We know that the faith Bartimaeus embraced was grounded in the mercy of Jesus. We know that faith, the consistent, persistent, enduring kind of faith, can annihilate barriers. We also know that the type of blindness Bartimaeus experienced was a metaphor for spiritual blindness.

Still, in spite of knowing these things, there are times when I long for my sight to be restored,
