Having Sight With No Vision

Click blue logo for more Christian quotes

“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”

Helen Keller

This quote really hits home for me in so many ways. I spent 24 years of being fully sighted just feeling lost, empty, angry and wasting my selfish life, being pulled one way and the other, not caring who i hurt.

Then in 2004 after losing most of my sight, Jesus became the light of my world. “I was blind but now I see”. see my About Steve page…

Now with Jesus as my destination on my “Spiritual Sat Nav” I have Vision, purpose, worth, and directions to follow. 🙂

How is your vision?

  1. amen, steve! i bless God for you and for giving you a vision beyond your sight! i pray He restores your sight, but never at the expense of your vision. His ways are so paradoxical to ours! When He wanted Paul to see Christ, He blinded Him. Had I ever sent you the link for the video blog I’d said I wanted to share with you? It’s called, “Your Sight is Blinding You.” I hope it blesses you like your post today has blessed me! 🙂 here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssX7PpBNTwo&index=7&list=PLkdYnr_vDfzNmvW09txB7MDO9qzgfXDl0

    • Wow, i love your video! It certainly blessed me again today! 🙂 Thanks for all of your prayers and loving encouragements! I love your quote:
      “His ways are so paradoxical to ours! When He wanted Paul to see Christ, He blinded Him.”
      I can so relate to this! 🙂

      • oh, glory and YAY! u bless me so, so much! i appreciate your posts! 🙂 glad it resonated with u! n yes, God’s ways are so different than ours..to set us free, He makes us His bondservants…amazing…n the most amazing of all is that He calls us His children, and when He wanted to save His children, He sent His only son to DIE! only GOD can make sense of such a thing! 🙂

  2. Amen dear brother 🙂
