Day 113 - Father, I Am Blinded By My Past

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023


Start with this prayer. Father, I am blinded by my past.


We live in a world of great separation—the separation we bring about through our beliefs, not from God or of God. Jesus walked amongst the poorest, dirtiest people, yet he never wavered in accepting or offering a touch. All were the children of God, and his actions reflected his beliefs.


What causes such fear and distrust among us? Why are many of us raised to turn away from different people? Why do we accept the blindness that separates us from what might be the best of people? Their only fault is they are different from us. Can you change if you find yourself putting a wall up between you and others? Will you think about how you could change? Do you want to change? This simple prayer is a start.


Prayer:

Father, I am blinded by my past.

I have realized that to accept myself; I must grow awareness of and deal with the areas in my life where I am blind.


Father, open my heart, eyes, and hands to know, see, and act as a new person.

A person you know I am if I believe fully, completely, and unerringly.


Father, with gratitude, I accept your gift and go into the world changed.

Continue to work on me.

Let me demonstrate these changes all the days of my life.

Amen.

Barb,


It is a challenge that we all should face. In those blind spots are the ripples that separate us from God. I believe we all have them. Cindy Rae
