One Wish


Blind-Man-Image-326x159

Today, I went to the evening church service…because, well you know…I am in the phase where it is just so hard to drag myself out of bed.  That alone is a full time job for me.  So, evening church it is for me.

The Gospel reading today was about the blind man who encountered Jesus and his disciples.  The man referred to Jesus as the “son of David” and asked Jesus to have pity on him.  Well, one thing led to another and the blind man was called to Jesus.  Jesus then asked him, “What is it that you want from me?”  The blind man says in return, “I want to see again.”  Now, this seeing refers not only to his sight, but to his faith as well.  His sight was restored as Jesus tells him, “Your faith has saved you.”

The priest asked that if you were to meet Jesus and he asked you, “What is it that you want from me?”  what you would respond with.  He discussed that some might ask for health, wealth, etc.  I thought about my response to the question.  I don’t have to think long to know my answer.  If Jesus were to come to me right now and ask that question, I would answer, “Love….I want to experience love again.”  I don’t want any of the riches in this world, for I know that I do not belong to this world.  My real home is in heaven and this earth is only a temporary home for me.  What I want is love.  I always give my love out, but hardly get it in return.  I want to feel loved.  Now, I know that Jesus loves me and that his love for me is beyond what I can even comprehend, but sometimes it would be nice to have a human on this earth be able to say “I love you” to me and actually mean it. So, my answer to the question is love.  I want love.

  1. I really like this post. I’m glad that you are sharing your thoughts and feelings. I know, personally, it’s a very difficult thing for me to feel or to accept love, maybe because I am so afraid of loosing it. Of being abandoned. lol how’s that for pseudopsycobabble? 😉 Keep on doing what your’e doing, your’e truth told in love will help others as much as is will help yourself.

    1. Thank you! I am going to be doing a “love” journal to help me love myself and others more. It will be posted on my blog, so that might be an interesting read! We will see! It is inspired by this last post and will be an interesting journey for me. Many hugs, thoughts, and prayers sent your way! 🙂 ❤

  2. I sit here reading some of your posts and can’t help but think about how similar we are. We feel the same feelings. All I want is to feel loved. I, too, know Jesus loves me, but he can’t hug me right now. So I depend on my wife for that. I have realized that the reason, or one of the reasons, I need love from someone is because I don’t feel lovable.
    If I don’t even love myself, how could someone else love me? It had caused a lot of struggle in my marriage. My best advice is to find a way to love yourself. And try to remember that even when you don’t feel loved, there are many people out there that do love you, even strangers like me.
