Blindspot: How to Protect Yourself from the Things You Can’t See Coming

on June 27, 2014

Today we are going to do something a little different.

Are you ready, Dear One?

Get a piece of paper and something to write with.


I’m not kidding!

A pen, a pencil, your child’s broken crayon…whatever is nearby.

Got it?


Now grab that writing instrument of choice and your piece of paper.

Think of one thing that is bothering you.

It shouldn’t be too hard.

If you are anything like me, it’s probably been popping in and out of your head since you got up this morning.

Write the name of that one person, thing or situation on your paper.

Now hold onto it.

Stare at it.

Ball it up and hold it as tightly as you can in your fist.

Don’t relax, it may fall out.

Whatever you do, don’t loosen that grip!

Do this all day and you will magically feel better about what’s on that paper.

Doesn’t make much sense does it?

If you resist doing this physically, why on earth would you choose to do it mentally?

If you have your hand clenched in a fist all day, you won’t get much accomplished.

Isn’t your brain the same way?

If you wrap your brain around a worry all day, you will leave no room to consider opportunities and possibilities that may come your way.

Have you ever driven down the road and not seen a car coming because it was hanging out in your blind spot?

If blind spots didn’t exist, just think of how many accidents could be avoided!

Every time you worry…everytime you dwell…you create spiritual blind spots.

You won’t be able to see what God is doing if you have that big old problem blinding you.

When your problem looks bigger than your God, your life will be a wreck!

Now take that same piece of paper you have been holding onto.

Smooth it out.

Oh, good job.

Nice and pretty!

Ready for the next part?

Tear that sucker up!

Yes, you read this right.

Tear it up!

Now put it back together, just like it was before.

You can’t can you?

When something is broken you can’t make it whole again.

Only God can do that.

Talk to Him about it.

Give him your broken pieces.

You can trust Him.

Really, you can!

Stop trying to control it all.

It isn’t working.




Let the one who holds the world together, hold you together.

It’s okay.

He will create a beautiful picture from the pieces of your life.

He will.





Listen to God.

What opportunity have you been given today?
