O Jesus, Lead us onward

Mark 8:22-25
22 And they came to Bethsaida. And some people brought to him a blind man and begged him to touch him. 23 And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he had spit on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?” 24 And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.” 25 Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

How loving! A beautiful picture of you leading a blind man by the hand. Utterly dependent on you and yet trusting in you. You are faithful and very loving. You treat us with utmost care and tenderness.

O Jesus, lead us onward,
Lead us onward with your gentle, tender, and loving hand,
Let us hold tightly onto your hands.
