Last year I atteneded a miracle league softball game that my grandaughter Addie was playing in. It was amazing to watch all the children with disabilities play ball. Many of the parents would tell the kids when to swing the bat to help them connect with the ball. As one little girl hit the ball I watched in amazement as her mother ran backwards as fast as she could in front of her daughter telling her where to run. As I watched I realized that the runner was blind but wasnt running by sight but by sound. What an amazing thing to watch. I watched as she rounded the bases and made it all the way home. Wouldn't it be great if christians didn’t depend on sight but the direction from the Holy Spirit! If we follow the direction of the Holy Spirit it will never lead us wrong, but all the way home.
