“Out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see.” Isaiah 29:18
When reading this passage, I could not help but to notice these
words stuck out. The 1st reading today tells of the power of the
Lord, and the redemption that we are promised. In due time, all
will be restored—God will right every wrong and bring joy
to his people. But in thinking about this, I couldn’t help
but wonder what it would be like to be blind. It is something that
I certainly take for granted, never even having to wear glasses.
I close my eyes and try to imagine what it would be like to not
see colors, trees, mountains, sky, sea, a church, other people,
or even myself… try to imagine what it would be like if my
eyes were “closed” all the time. Then open my eyes up
and try to imagine if I was seeing all this for the first time.
Even the most basic object looks amazing! The stapler on my desk,
the bible next to me, not to mention the glowing windows of downtown
buildings bright against the dark star specked sky. I’m sure
it would be quite overwhelming at first!
