You can not lead a blind person who does not know he is blind.
If you try to lead a blind person who has not realised he or she is blind, all you get is resistance and rebellion.
The blind has to come to realisation that where they are is a blind spot, and we all need support to see our blind spot.
Are you thinking what is she on about? Let me explain more, from experience when someone is having conversation with you on something dear to their heart, most times you can see clearly things they cant see.
You can point out your observations, but unless the person sees those things for themselves it would not make any sense to them.
If you push or insist, you can offend the person just because they need to see things clearly from your perspective.
Remembering that everyone has a right to their opinion, you have to just pray for a realisation for the persons involved to get it themselves.
This is where it gets frustrating for you because you can see clearly what needs to be done, but there is nothing you can physically do about it.
Prayer is a necessary part of life; whenever you feel stock or frustrated about any situation that you can not change, go straight to pray about it.
I have found that prayer brings so much peace to situations we find ourselves, it gives reassurance that you can trust God with the things that burden you.
It also allows my patience to grow through waiting for my prayers to be answered, knowing that if the answer is a yes or a no, it is the best answer for whatever I have prayed about.
When you pray for someone to realise his or her blind spot, the answer might take longer than you expected.
In this waiting time you have to continue to love them and support them in the best possible way that you can.
Don’t compromise the truth to suite the circumstances, as you would not be doing him or her any favour, obedience is always the best policy to keep your integrity.
Eventually when the penny drops and the blind realises the blindness, it would be effortless to follow your lead with total trust and obedience; because you are united in the realisation of the truth and facts of the blindness.
I have learnt to be patient in all my dealings with life and its ups and downs; life has a way of teaching me things in a hard way because of my stubbornness in the past.
I am learning each day and I am very open to sharing these lessons to guide the younger generations from making the same mistakes that I have made.
We have a lot of questions to ask about things that are not right in our life and the world, it is time to look back and begin to make the right decisions; to lead us to a better future for our children and generations to come.
Obedience to the word of God is the beginning of wisdom, if we love our neighbour as the Bible says, that is a start that would save generations to come.
Stop and think for a minute, do not allow the blindness of the fast pace of life steal your joy today and now.
Be open to see the grace of God and what freedom it brings.
Have a blessed week. 🙂
