There’s a lot of things that I don’t know. There’s a lot of things that I don’t understand. There’s a lot of parts of the Bible that don’t make sense to me, a lot of mysteries of God that I can’t fathom. There’s a lot that I don’t know in life.
And, by the way, the older I get, the more that I’m ok with not knowing everything.
There’s a lot that I don’t know. But there is one that that I know for sure. I’ll let what it says in John 9: 24-25 explain that:
So for the second time they called the man who had been blind and said to him, “Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.” He answered, “Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.”
In John 9, Jesus heals a blind man. This man was hauled before the authorities to be questioned about his healing, about Jesus, about everything. And they hurl question after question at him, to the point where he’s finally fed up with it. And this is how he responds. I don’t know everything. But I know this. I was was blind, but now I see.
The one thing I know is this. I once was blind, but now I see. There’s a lot of things that my mind will never understand. But I know this. Jesus changed my life. He made me different. He changed my purpose, He changed my plans, He changed everything about me.
I once was blind, but now I see. I once had no purpose, now I have purpose. I once had no peace, now I have peace. I once had no hope, now I have hope.
I once was blind, but now I see. I know that. I’ve experienced that. I’ve lived that.
There’s a lot I don’t know. But I do know this. Jesus changed my life. And there’s not a single life that He can’t change. That’s what I do know.
