I am lost in my darkness,
I need to see.
People tell me to stop,
to not chase rainbows,
pester the important man,
to expect miracles
but I must,
I need to,
I need to be freed
from this darkness and despair.
So I have to chase Jesus
and he is there
ready to meet my need,
waiting for me to join him
to a new hope
Mark 10:46-52 (CEV)
Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus
46 Jesus and his disciples went to Jericho. And as they were leaving, they were followed by a large crowd. A blind beggar by the name of Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting beside the road. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus from Nazareth, he shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” 48 Many people told the man to stop, but he shouted even louder, “Son of David, have pity on me!”
49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him over!”
They called out to the blind man and said, “Don’t be afraid! Come on! He is calling for you.” 50 The man threw off his coat as he jumped up and ran to Jesus.
51 Jesus asked, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man answered, “Master, I want to see!”
52 Jesus told him, “You may go. Your eyes are healed because of your faith.”
Right away the man could see, and he went down the road with Jesus.
