Blindfolded Faith

"My plan for your life is unfolding before you. Sometimes the road you are traveling seems closed, or it opens up so painfully slow... (or) the way before you suddenly clears... As you persevere along the path I have prepared for you, depending on My strength to sustain you, expect to see miracles - and you will...not always visible to the naked eye." (372)
2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us "we walk by faith, not by sight." It's much easier to walk by sight - being able to SEE where we're going. Walking by faith presents a much more complicated challenge when we are required to step into the unknown, the unseen, the unfamiliar. It's uncomfortable and so unnatural, awkward and foreign to our human senses. In fact, faith does not make a lot of sense! My senses may scream "Why?" "What now?" or "No way!"
It reminds me of being blindfolded, yet in motion. I have learned that faith is not a single act. It is a series of continuing actions, putting one foot in motion, stepping forward, traveling on in spite of doubt, questions, heartache or fear. My faith may crawl along, inching its way forward, but its very presence is evidence of a miracle. So, no matter how fragile or weak, I will go on with or without the blindfolds!
Pushing on...dmc


  1. Dawn Marie…you are an inspiration and great encouragement to us all. Great devo for me as I find myself in a place of uncertainty. What DOES God want me to do, where does He want me to go? The path before me is shrouded in fog and I can’t see clearly… So, I am depending on His strength to sustain me and waiting to see His Power and His Glory. Moving forward (wherever) by faith, slowly but surely.

  2. Carolynn, I believe God is birthing something in your life! (See tomorrow's blog.) It's exciting to watch you follow after Him...even with blindfolds on! You inspire so many of us!
