Dear Lord, when I worked in the office
of an organization of people who are blind,
the leader could not understand
how a good God could allow him to be blind.
Here in our retirement community
some people are losing their sight
along with other aches and pains.
Some things are hard to understand.
Lord, help us to walk hand in hand with you
by faith and not by sight
until all difficulties are overcome.
Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him.”
