I’m having eye surgery tomorrow. So what, you ask?
- Please pray for me and for my surgeon for a successful outcome.
- This is an opportunity for me to be a voice for the goodness of God, even when circumstances aren’t so good.
For 3-4 years now, my vision has been impaired. Often times I cannot drive or do my regular activities because of it. Even so, I believe NOW, more than ever, that God is faithful and good.
One year ago, my eye doctor said that the impaired eye muscle was inoperable. This spring it has healed to an operable state, and I’m a good candidate for the strabismus surgery that I’m having tomorrow.
Did you catch that? God, in his infinite wisdom, has answered my prayer for healing. From inoperable to operable.
What are you praying for and waiting for God to answer?
Will you trust in His goodness if He doesn’t answer the way that you are asking?
Whether my vision is impaired or not, God is seated on His throne.
Whether my vision is impaired or not, He is loving and merciful.
Realistically, I shouldn’t even be alive, much less having a full and incredible life with people I love and an annoying vision/migraine problem.
Yet here I am.
Here I am, alive, in spite of destructive choices, addictions, in spite of trying to kill myself when I was young, and years of depression.
All because of Jesus and His mercy to save me and free me.
I’m praying that the strabismus procedure will be successful and that I can ditch the glasses for good.
But even if not, I will still praise and worship the great God who loves me and gave His life so that I could be saved and free.
Not problem free, but free from bondage. We may never be problem free.
If your circumstances don’t ever line up the way that you desire, do you believe that you can have the abundant life that Jesus offers us?
