Talent of Blindness
I just read the following about Dr. William Moon of Brighton, who became totally blind at the age of 21 and his subsequent prayer. And it left me, to be honest, ashamed of all the times I have murmured against the LORD for all those things that I had lost – but nothing compared to the great loss this man of God had suffered. This is what I read:
When Dr. Moon, of Brighton, England, was stricken with blindness, he said “Lord, I accept this talent of blindness from Thee. Help me to use it for Thy glory that at Thy coming Thou mayest receive Thine own with usury.” Then God enabled him to invent the Moon Alphabet for the blind, by which thousands of blind people were enabled to read the Word of God, and many of them were gloriously saved.
