Walking by Faith, Not by Sight
Janet Perez Eckles
My friend stopped by the other day and rumbled in her purse. “You have to see the pictures I took during our trip,” she said. I smiled. “Oops,” she added, “I always forget you…well…that you can’t see.”
“I forget myself,” I said with a chuckle. (I like folks with a sense of humor.) For me, having no sight is a way of life…actually a wonderfully blessed life. My days sweep by with gratitude, so much thankfulness. And for that reason I thought I’d share my unique recipe for this Thanks giving dinner. I don’t mind if you copy it and serve it to your loved ones.
- Gather the ingredients stored in the cabinet of God’s Word.
- Stir together large portions of His promises, spoonful’s of His direction, and dashes of His admonitions.
- Place in large bowl several cups of commitment to read His Word.
- Add generous amounts of faith to cover all traces of doubt.
- Blend together, adding sprinkles of laughter, of enjoyment, fun, and unexpected surprises.
- Bake in the oven of your heart till triumph is golden brown.
With songs of thanksgiving playing in the background, present it to the guests who come into your life. And unlike the rest of the world, instead of entering the doors to stress, gloom or anxiety for the days to come, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name” (Psalm 100:4).
Why? “For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:5).
It’s your turn, can you share some things you’ll be giving thanks for this year? Would love, love to read them. You can send them to me via comment. Did you know most of my writings are drawn from my bestselling book, Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God’s Fiesta? Did you get your own copy yet? It’s available HERE.
