Fanny Crosby, a prolific writer who was blind, is likely in the top tier of influential women and kingdom-of-God workers. If you are interested you can look at the songs this messenger has contributed to the church’s witness and see how she, unsighted, looks forward to seeing and even revels in visions of the present condition.
Here is Isaiah sounding off about interpersonal refuge. It is a marvelous highway which may seem to make skilled and conscientious Christian leadership unnecessary but it is another layer of investment in everyone.
Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. Isaiah 32:2
- Fanny was a hiding place
- Fanny was a shelter.
- Fanny was a stream of water in a dry place
- Fanny was a shady rock in a weary land
No sequel of Fanny or apostle Peter is imminent; no copy of Yeshua or you exists, but we all have a great rocky destiny, in the fashion of St. Peter (Rock, Kefa, Petros). Fanny was convinced her sight would improve.
All the things that Fanny saw in her wonderful Saviour she was privileged to be. We are privileged to be. This means that each of us has the potential to be rocky residences and rocky witnesses. Shifting sand and pebbles do not work.
Oh the height and depth of mercy
Oh the length and breadth of love
Oh the fullness of redemption
Pledge of endless life above
