Blind Bartimaeus sat by the roadside begging. When he heard that Jesus was passing by, he began to cry out for help saying, "Jesus, son of David have mercy on me!" 

However, many people warned him to be quiet. But, Bartimaeus cried out all the more until Jesus heard him and healed him. (Mark 10:46-52) 

Therefore learn from Bartimaeus and refuse to accept an unacceptable situation because he refused to remain a blind beggar when he learned that Jesus was in his vicinity.

Emulate Bartimaeus and ignore the people who want you to accept a terrible situation when you know that Jesus can change it the way he ignored the people who were telling him to keep quiet and stop calling on Jesus so that he could remain a blind beggar. 

Even if you can't see a way out of your predicament (like blind Bartimaes) or your problems have conspired to shut you up, decide to refuse to accept the untenable situation. Cry out to Jesus as you Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) until your situation changes for the better.



Even if doctors cannot help you (as they could not help blind Bartimaeus) or the financial institutions can't help you (as they couldn't help begging Bartimaeus), do not give up on yourself and on your stressful situation. Çry out to Jesus all the more for He came that we may have life and have it to the full.

So, if your stressful situation is squeezing the abundance out of your life, reject it Come boldly to the throne of grace so that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help you the time of need. (Adapted Hebrews 4:15-16)
