A Sightless Journey

5 Biblical Comforts for Anyone Going Through Difficult Transitions

"I am not able to bear all this... alone, because it is too heavy for me."

Numbers 11:14 KJV

Eyesight is priceless. You don't know just how valuable it is until you lose it! Our eyes are precious portals... natural wonders that have blown the minds of scientists and evolutionists alike! Some deny the human and evolutionary transcendency of the eye though it offers adequate evidence that showcases that there must be a God somewhere. And not just any God but an intelligent Genius Designer intimate with all our substance; a Powerhouse Manufacturer who microscopically paid attention to the minutest details when He created us without a speck of flaw from dust!

"'To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.' -Charles Darwin    *Darwin, Charles. The Origin of Species, J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd, London, 1971, p. 167.

As windows to the world's greatest attractions, the eyes afford us beauty, mental therapy, tranquil meditation, and channels of knowledge. As windows to the soul, it offers entrance to a whole new world- a heavenly world filled with boundless resources for people of all ages, genders, races, and cultural backgrounds, even though such persons may be physically blind.


Frances Jane Crosby was one of the most prolific and profound hymn writers ever! She wrote over 8000 lovely hymns and is famous for ones like "Blessed Assurance"; "A Wonderful Savior"; "God Will Take Care of You"; "Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior"; "Praise Him, Praise Him," and "To God Be the Glory".

She became blind at six years old through the blunder of a physician who had treated her eyes for inflammation. Yet her positive attitude and amazing "visual" perspective give us pause as we deal with the different challenges that God allows us to face. I found her testimony inspiring:

"It seemed intended by the blessed Providence of God, that I should be blind all my life; and I thank Him for the dispensation.... I have heard that this physician never ceased expressing his regret at the occurrence; and that it was one of the sorrows of his life. But if I could meet him now, I would say,

“Thank you, thank you—over and over again—for making me blind, if it was through your agency that it came about!” This sounds strangely to you, reader? But I assure you I mean it—every word of it; and if perfect earthly sight were offered me to-morrow, I would not accept it....Why would I not have that doctor’s mistake —if mistake it was—remedied? ... while I am deprived of many splendid sights (which, as above mentioned, might draw me away from the principal work of my life), I have also been spared the seeing of a great many unpleasant things. The merciful God has put His hand over my eyes, and shut out from me the sight of many instances of cruelty and bitter unkindness and misfortune, that I would not have been able to relieve, and must simply have suffered in seeing. I am content with what I can know of life through the four senses I possess, practically unimpaired, at eighty-three years of age. Hearing, tasting, smelling, and feeling, are still felt, in their fullest degree. -Fanny Crosby's Life- Story (1903)

Mental Health...

Fanny died on February 12, 1915, in the Lord. Wow! Eighty-nine years of being on a sightless journey due to loss of eyesight and vision, yet this phenomenal woman... this Christian woman, held on to God and blessed Him at every turn despite her permanent disability. She was blind, but "visually" her insight was sound and well-placed by faith in God and not her circumstances, challenges, and crises.

I heard someone say recently that "Jesus is not therapy", yet it was only by beholding Jesus and being focused on Jesus, His Word, and His love that gave this woman robust and resilient mental health. Therapy is important, but we have seen that by itself it is futile. However, when needed, therapy along with having a relationship with Jesus and recognizing that without Him everything is hopeless, is POWERFUL! When your therapist is not available, only calling on Jesus and leaning on His sweet promises, will rescue you. There is no Therapist like Him. The Bible says that only with Him can we have abundant life!

5 Biblical Comforts for anyone going through difficult transitions

Below are 5 Biblical comforts for anyone going through difficult transitions on a sightless journey:

  • "For [in a relationship] with thee is the fountain of life:.." Psalms 36:9 KJV

  • "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Psalms 16:11 KJV

  • "For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness [solutions] dwell;" Colossians 1:19 KJV

  • "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." Ephesians 3:19 KJV

  • "The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing." Zephaniah 3:17 KJV

Friend, sometimes life is tough and like David, you may feel like this: "For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me." Psalms 38:4

The way out may look bleak and hopeless, the depression may be oppressive like thick darkness... you may be on a sightless journey but let thine eye be single and turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look long enough with a determination like Jacob... and tell God, I will not let you go until you bless me. Why? In Christ alone is "pleroma"! Completeness, Abundance, and Power in its totality (C.A.P). Then let Him guide you with His eye to complete healing...go to Him holding nothing back.

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye." Matthew 11:28; Psalms 32:8 KJV --Jesus
