"I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, In paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains. These are the things I will do, And I will not leave them undone." - Isaiah 42:16
Jimmy Parrish was among my boyhood pastors. He has a son—Jimmy Jr.—who was totally blind. We were exactly the same age, so it became my honor to lead Jimmy Jr. around the church and school. Jimmy Jr. had a radiance about him. When I think of God’s promise to lead the spiritually blind, I remember my own desire to guide Jimmy Jr. I wanted to steer him away from traps and threats. If I, as a not-so-godly teen wanted to lead Jimmy Jr. with care, how much more God will guide us, who cannot yet see all the wonders of His Kingdom and its truth.
