“Jesus! Have mercy on me!” The blind beggar cried out these words to Jesus over two thousand years ago. And what did Jesus do? He healed the beggar’s blindness!
We may not all be physically blind, but we all are born spiritually blind. God does not want us to be in this state, and he offers to us a solution: grace, mercy, and salvation that will open our eyes to the truth of the world and ourselves. We cannot be healed from our “blindness” without the loving touch of Jesus. He longs to put His hand on our “eyes” and say, “Your faith has made you well.” He cannot do this, though, unless you are willing to surrender to Him.
As the beautiful song, “Amazing Grace” says, “I once was lost, but now I’m found. Was blind, but now I see.”
Are you willing to cry out, “Jesus! Have mercy on me”?
We spend our lives searching for something that is, in reality, already right in front of us. We are "blinded" by the world and its standards. In order to "see" past everything that this sinful world lies out before us, we have to set our gaze on Someone higher than this world.2 Corinthians 4:17-18, "For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever."
Bevin Summey showed a natural gift in writing at a very young age. Even greater, however, she had a strong passion for Christ and longed to help others know Christ as well. With Christ to guide her, she began to feel the need to use her gift of writing that God had given her to show the world who He really is. After she graduated in 2009, she finally began to fulfill that dream. The Love Letter, her first book, was released in September 2012, and has begun to amaze people at the simple yet powerful message. With the help of God, she’s fulfilling her dream as she continues to quietly work on her books within the little town of Dalton, Georgia.
