Message from Gena Horn, Technolgy & Operations Assistant

Faith--is the Pierless Bridge Supporting what We see Unto the Scene that We do not." -- Emily Elizabeth Dickinson

Blind Faith
One day when a man was skiing in Colorado, he saw some people wearing red vests with the words BLIND SKIER. He thought, "I have a hard enough time skiing with two good eyes, how can they ski successfully with none?" The answer was - they had a guide whose instructions they totally trusted and followed! As the guide skied beside them, he'd tap his ski poles together and assure them he was there. Then he'd say, "Go right! Turn left! Stop! Slow! Skier coming up on your right!"

What a picture. Life is like skiing downhill blind. We can't see even 5 seconds into the future. We can't see the struggles to come or all the other skiers who might run into us, or over us. And those fears are heightened when we recall how often we've been blindsided by circumstances we didn't see coming. Humanly speaking it leaves the strongest of us feeling vulnerable. And that's when we must place our confidence in the God who never changes and never fails. Here's what He has to say to you today: "I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths. I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them" (Is 42:16 N1V).

What is it that gets you through the unfamiliar places, the dark places, and the rough places in life? Faith and trust in God's Word .. In God's rock-solid promise: "I will guide [you]... I will not forsake ...As with "trust," faith involves a concept of future events or outcomes. His assurance is all you need! We can say, "Scio Cui Credidi" ..the words -- taken from the first letter of Paul to Timothy -- meaning "I know him in whom I have believed."
