When He had gone indoors, the blind men came to Him, and He asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then He touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.” Matthew 9:28-29
When I was younger, we lived by a pool. During the summer we would go there every day; but one day my sister was running around the pool. Near the pool there is a specific spot you should not run in because it gets really slippery. So my dad kept telling her, “Don’t run near that Talulah or you will get hurt.” But of course she did not listen. When she was running around the pool she stepped in that spot, she slipped, and she fell. When she fell she hit her head really hard. When we found her, she had forgotten that she was at the pool and who was with her. Two days before this happened my cousins came into town and we were going to celebrate one of their birthdays. My little sister completely forgot they came into town. She forgot what had happened in those past two days. So when she saw them she started crying because she did not know they had come into town. Each time they were coming over, she would forget, so whenever she would see them again she would begin to cry. Even still, during that time she had never been so happy. We are quite similar when it comes to God. We forget that He is there most of the time until something reminds us of His presence. We need to start remembering that He is here with us through the good and bad times, and He wants to help us, no matter what. It will just take a little bit of time. If we remember that God is there, He will make us happier and light up our day.
