He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” John 9:25
Do you remember that guy in the gospel whom Jesus touched and though he was born blind, he was able to see? The teachers of the law were irate and gave him a hard time, but he shrugged his shoulders and said, “All I can tell you is that I couldn’t see, but I’m seeing now!” That’s how I feel today. I can really relate to this guy.
At work yesterday, I backed up my photo files from my laptop onto a CD. In the evening, I turned on my laptop only to find out that I could not type. My m’s, for instance, were 6’s, etc. I asked my husband to Google this problem on his desktop since I couldn’t type. For 30 minutes we tried to follow directions using the Nmlk key and shutting down and booting up tons of times. Stumped, he gave up, and my laptop rested in my lap. I didn’t know what to do.
This is where it gets weird and the cynics laugh. In my technological ignorance, I prayed that Jesus would show me what to do. I followed up my little prayer of faith with action and pressed the Scrlk key just for the heck of it and walla….I could type again. No technological help line or instruction booklet saved me, but prayer. What can I say except that I didn’t know what to do about not being able to type and then I was typing!
Coincidence? There’s no such word as coincidence in Hebrew. We believe that Jesus is always with us and willing to help; He cares about every detail of our lives!
