A Blind Man’s Vision

“I want what I want” cried the blind man
With tears from his sealed lids.
He leaned on his own understanding,
For things unseen and far meant no harm to him.
He ran to relationships and neglected the King;
Securing his desire, he had no time for prayer.

“I want what I want” cried the blind man.
Things comforting to his flesh meant no harm to him,
So he ran to his distorted idea of love
While neglecting the hymns.
When reaping the harvest from the seeds sowed in sin,
He cried, “how did I get here?”

Then he realized, following his vision that has no insight has become his plight.
Then he realized, that things unseen and far can still mean harm.
Then he realized, that not all things comforting to the flesh is good to partake in.
Then he realized, that unconditional love comes from above.
Then he realized, that his desires are distractions from prayer.
Then he realized, he has God’s grace and mercy as lamps onto his feet.
Then he realized, that it pays a man no good to lean on his own understanding.

Scripture Support:
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.
Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

  1. Love, “then he realized that things unseen and far can still mean harm.”
    A lot of depth in this singular statement.
