Two blind men cry out to Jesus. They ask him to have pity on them. They put their faith in Jesus, they truly believe that he can heal them. Their healing comes to them because of that faith.
Yes, our faith can certainly bring about miracles in our lives, but perhaps we do not see all of the miracles that are around us. Sometimes, if we just open ourselves to new experiences in our lives, if we open up ourselves to new possibilities in which God can work in us, then we will be surprised as to how God can work his miracles in our lives. Isaiah tells us of a day in which the deaf will hear the words of a book, in which the eyes will be able to see past the gloom and darkness. During our Advent time of preparation, we are called to plan for that day, the day when Jesus will come to us as a light in our world, a light shines through the darkness, a light that gives us the hope to endure our struggles and challenges. Just as the blind men had faith that brought about great changes in their lives, may our faith also bring many different possibilities into our own lives & into the lives of those who are searching for more.
