He Saw It All

Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging.  When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”

So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”  Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

  • Mark 10:46-52

“I was working in town one afternoon
Attending some business affairs
I heard a commotion a couple streets over
And wondered. What’s happening there
A young man was running from in that direction
And stopped just to catch his breath
I asked him to please tell me what was the hurry
He smiled up at me and he said.

“I was trying to catch the crippled man
Did he run past this way?
He was rushing home to tell everyone
What Jesus did today
And the mute man was telling myself and the deaf girl
He’s leaving to answer Gods call
It’s hard to believe but if you don’t trust me
Ask the blind man, he saw it all
Go ask the blind man, he saw it all

“So my friend if the troubles and burdens you carry
Are heavy and dragging you down
You’ve tried everything you can possibly think of
There’s no relief to be found
That very same Jesus that altered the future
Of a blind man, the deaf, and the lame
Is still reaching out in your hour of trouble
One touch and you’re never the same.

“You’ll be trying to catch the crippled man
Did he run past this way?
He was rushing home to tell everyone
What Jesus did today
And the mute man was telling myself and the deaf girl
He’s leaving to answer Gods call
It’s hard to believe but if you don’t trust me
Ask the blind man, he saw it all
Go ask the blind man, he saw it all
He saw it all”

At the time this is scheduled to be posted, I should be resting comfortably at home after my first cataract surgery.  The second comes in two weeks if everything is fine with the first by then.

In thinking of the pending surgery, I thought of this song.  The Booth Brothers do a great job with it.  The first time that I saw a video of them singing the song, tears of Joy came over me.  How could anyone not believe that Jesus was the Son of God?

Soli Deo Gloria.  Only to God be the Glory.

  1. Love these lyrics. One of my favorite things to do is try to imagine myself in the place of those who met Jesus, or whatever story I’m reading. Like this… http://anotherredletterday.com/blood-in-the-sheets/

    Praying your surgery went well.

    Praying for a speedy recovery. Paul had his done a couple months ago and he’s seeing better than he had for a long time.
