There is great joy in knowing the love of Christ. How often we allow our days to be hum-drum and boring when Christ has made available a tremendous overflowing river of joy to us. Our eyes are covered with scales that blind us to the wonderful things around us. We see, only meanness and evil around us because that is where we cast our eyes. We never see the opportunities.
My prayers have changed recently because I became knowledgable to my blindness. My prayers now include this phrase – “Lord, put opportunity in front of me so that I can do nothing but stumble over it and thereby recognize that joy full occasion to witness of you and to witness the great things you do.
Lord, may I stumble more each and every day.
