As promised here is my response to the question: "If you could change anything about your body what would it be?"
My initial reaction when the question was posed was, "I wish I could change my eyes."
You see, over the years it has always been my eyes that have prevented me from pursuing my dreams.
I was unable to become an Air Force pilot because my vision is impaired, I am color blind, and I have poor depth perception. I was unable to become a police officer because I am color blind. Finally, you can't make a very good race car driver if you have poor depth perception. Imagine the wrecks I would have caused ...
So it has always been my eyes that have held me back, and if I could change anything it would be my eyes. At least that was my initial reaction.
However, after I thought for a moment, I was reminded that I am who God created me to be. I am the person with the unique body that God gave me, not to pursue my dreams but to fulfill His purpose for me.
If I had perfect vision, I may have never become a pastor. If I had perfect vision, my dreams could have kept me from seeking first God's kingdom and His righteousness. If I had perfect vision, imagine how blind I might really be.
Those are my thoughts, I invite you to share yours as we journey together along the Way ...
