I AM YOUR SIGHT 3/14/04
DREAM: I was walking or maneuvering a blind
person on a college campus to a class. When I woke I was
struck with how it must feel to be led through an
obstacle course with your eyes closed.
WORD TO PONDER: A PARABLE OF ABIDING
You have often wondered what it means to abide and how
to do it. You question where you are, where you are
going, and haven’t a clue. Relax, dear one, I AM
teaching you how to abide.
Consider the blind man who has moved to a new city. As
he listens to the sounds, experiences the smells, and
deposits what he touches into memory…he is leaning upon
Another who has eyes to see. His companion walks with
him giving him understanding and insight into what his
senses are experiencing.
Every move he makes, everything he experiences… he
listens, learns and remembers. His daily life is a safe
refuge because he clings to his Companion. And that is
abiding in Me. Abiding is living in a constant state of
expectancy where your whole being is leaning upon Me for
your sight, your hearing, your discernment, your
understanding and all your needs. Abiding is a constant
state of friendship and intimacy in all that you are and
do. So, precious, when you question what is going on in
your life, cling to Me and learn.
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither
can you, unless you abide in Me.” (John 15:4 NKJV)
