Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. – Ephesians 1:3
It had been happening slowly…over at least a couple years.
Deteriorating vision. At first, I wrote it off to aging…but over time, I could tell it was more.
I had been here before, and was not eager to return.
Fifteen years ago, I had detached retinas, first in one eye, then in the other…a one-in-a-million medical problem. It was a scary time, thinking I might not be able to continue to see my baby. I prayed, underwent surgeries, and I was healed. Praise be to God!
As I realized my vision was deteriorating again, I started praying that God would again heal me.
This week, He used medicine again to heal. I had cataract surgery in both eyes. Not only are those wretched halos and “fog” gone, but also lenses implanted are allowing me to see without corrective lenses for the first time in 44 years.
I cannot begin to express the joy at being able to see clearly! Praise Him again!
Through this ordeal, God has used my deteriorating vision to teach me things about vision in general…and trust…and faith. I wish I weren’t so pig-headed that I have to learn my lessons the hard way, but at least He is willing to continue to work with this weak vessel (with weak eyes).
I am going to share them here. Maybe then you, dear reader, can learn without the stress I have had to face. And, if you are pig-headed too, you can gain some peace seeing a fellow stubborn child of God go through things.
Clear vision is worth it, no matter the price!
