The prolific Christian hymn writer, Fanny Crosby, lost her sight as a young child. But it is obvious through her hymns that she was a person who could see wonderfully with the spiritual eyes of her heart. We see a touch of her insight in the following poem:
“Oh, what a happy soul am I! Although I cannot see,
I am resolved that in this world, content I will be.
How many blessings I enjoy that other people don’t,
To weep and sigh because I’m blind, I cannot and I won’t.”
We often fall into the trap of feeling sorry for ourselves – but we all know that it is very easy to find someone who is a lot worse off than we are. Therefore, we have the attitude that Paul manifested, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil. 4:11-13).
Think About It!
Have a Great Day!
