God's working in you as you're working it out.

In John chapter 9, we hear the story of the blind man—not just the story about him being on the receiving end of a miracle that restores his sight, but also the story of his growing discipleship journey with Jesus in the aftermath of the miracle. After witnessing the miracle, the man, those around him, and the Pharisees who investigate the miracle, all begin to wrestle with questions about Jesus. What we see through the blind man’s story is that God is at work in us even as we’re working out these questions. If we have the faith, God can turn our blindness into boldness as we, like the blind man, begin to share our own stories of the ways God has been at work in us. How will God reveal himself to others through your story?
