The Craziest Idea Ever

34
Today’s devotional is purposely unedited. You will soon understand why. I am sharing it with you raw, the exact way it was written. Straight from the heart. 

How crazy is this? My dear friend suggets I write without looking. Yes, she actually suggested I write with my eyes closed. How crazy is this? Think about it? Years upon years of private school education, Ivy League education, a English degree, and now I’m supposed to write without looking?

Yes. I am even trying it now. It’s woild. How can I edit as I go along? I can’t. Not really. I have to write from the deepest place within and trust all will be well. But is it?
Isn’t this what the walk of faith is all about? Walking without living according to our natural flesh. My. What a difference it is to shut my eyes when I’m walking through life – or writing.
I cannot rely on what I did before – like where the keys on the computer keyboard are. I have to rely on something else altogether. I have to write by faith. 
I have to walk by faith. Or not. Certainly I can open my eyes and walk the way I have always walked. 
Oops, I cheated. I wanted to make sure my fingters were where they belong. 
So what about this faith walk? God doesn’t want us to walk according to the ways of thew orld, or the ways of the flesh. 
He wants us to make decisions not according to seeing the keys on the keyboard, and placing our fingers there. He wants us to put our feet on His pathway and follow Him by voice, by His Word, by HIs HOly Spirit within. And this, I can honestyly say, makes this journey so very craxy – at least in the eys of the world. 
I have a smile on my face right now even as I type in the darkness of my eyes being closed. 
Oddly, and how crazy is this, I feel more light behind my eyes, more light within my heart nad body, with my eyes closed. Why? I feel His presence more than ever, not distracted by the world without – around me. Smile, smile, smile. 
If only I would live my life this way. Even with my eyes open, if only I would disregard the shouts and cries and voices and distractsions of other people, situaitons, circumstances – and walk with Him. Solely. Only. By faith – in the love of my life. My precious JEsus.
Come, follow me, He says. I take His hand. My friend who gave this crazy idea prays each day for Jesus to take her hand and wlak her through the day.
Alas, take my hand, Jesus. I cannot walk with my eyes closed. Hold me. Lead me. TAke me where you desire me to be. 
I love you, JEsus. Eyes closed and all. I feel your presence so strongly this way. Thank you for filling me up with yuourself.
Craszy, crazy. I can’t wait to open my eyes and go back to see if any of the words came out right. Perhaps my fingers landed on the wrong keys and garbleed everything. But what matter is this? What matters most is this. I love JEsus, and I choose today to follow Him – eyes closed, eyes open. Heart on fire, heart open to the Lord of my life! Amen. 
Dear Lord, help me to do something crazy today. Help me to walk with you with my eyes closed. Help me to not rely on the world around me to show me the way to go. Help me to live the way you have called me. By faith. I love you! Amen. 

Yes, I am opening my eyes now. I will look for the scriptuyre I know belongs here. For that, I will not mbe able to keep my eyes closed any longer. Yet I choose this day to do my best to walk by faith – eyes open or not. My eyes, I know, must be fised on HIM.

2Co 5:7  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

  1. My spouse and i got really ecstatic Edward could carry out his researching through the entire ideas he discovered in your weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to just happen to be handing out hints which people today have been trying to sell. And we all realize we have the blog owner to give thanks to for that. Those explanations you have made, the straightforward blog navigation, the relationships you help create – it’s got most spectacular, and it’s really letting our son and us consider that that issue is thrilling, which is especially serious. Thank you for all!

  3. Any reputable retail establishment will treat customer security significantly.
    And like credit cards themselves, respected credit card reader apps
    supply dispute decision companies that can allow you to troubleshoot any
    security difficulties that arise. Property managers are usually paid a proportion of the monthly rent in change for their providers.
    Some older buildings in sure giant American cities like
    New York, Chicago and San Francisco are rent-managed or rent-stabilized, meaning that it is illegal for
    a landlord to cost greater than a set quantity for the property.
    If a transaction has failed however the candidates card
    account is debited greater than once, the amount shall be refunded to the
    candidates card account after reconciliation process inside seven (7) days of transaction. Ultimately, it comes right down to your needs- how much
    funds do you could have, how often do you plan on using
    it, the measure of privateness do you need, the quantity of security you want, and so on. If the tenant can show that the landlord knew about the injury and neglected to act with affordable timeliness to fix it, he can sue and he’ll
    win.
