I turned shocked to see a young mom shout and scold her lil kid in tbm railway bridge. The kid 1 feet tall, bare foot, thin legs, unkempt hair, shabbily dressed, clutching to a mini ponds talcum powder box, was held on one hand tightly by her mom.She was scolded as she dint inform there were stairs ahead.
The scene being strange, I stopped and then it sinked in. The Mother was blind, and her little girl was her only set of eyes. I've seen blind people walk, but this was hard to sink in.. The kid, who must be say 2 yr old, can barely walk, she cant even talk clearly, but the way she led was amazing! Telling/guiding her Mom, where to pause, where to walk or slow down! We followed her, afraid, they might hit a rick or a person. But the girl was pulling her mom to the bus stand, at amazing pace and that too precisely!
The kid was visibly malnourished. But her strength was incredible. The look she gave, to people who bumped on the way.. huh, it needs to be seen to believe and nothing could express it.
Strength comes from within...Not from food, clothes, money, power, belief in the future or even health. It seems to come from deep within. What we are, and where we draw our confidence from.
Prov 3:26 'For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.'
Isaiah 11:6 '...and a little child will lead them.'
