Two weeks ago, I noticed that I couldn’t see out of my right eye as well as I used to, everything was blurry and wavy. By the next day, a gray or blank spot occasionally appeared at the center of things. I went to my eye specialist; he said there were several things going on: holes in my retina, which he repaired in his office using laser surgery. He also found a macular pucker. Five years ago, I had surgery on my left eye for the same thing, which left me with distorted vision. The Dr. said to let him know if it gets worse.
I’ve spent many hours praying, asking God to take this away from me. He hasn’t. He may in the future. He may not.
He reminded me to trust Him.
I do trust God! I prayed, “Dear Lord, I thank you for all that You’ve given me, done for me, and all Your blessings. You’ve always helped me through the tough times. You’ve held me when I was hurting.”
Do I want to have trouble seeing? No. Do I want to be exhausted and in pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia? No! Do I want to live my life healthy, strong, free from pain, and able to see well? Obviously, yes.
If I had to choose between the two, would I choose a pain free life with good vision over my God?
Because God is always with me—helping, guiding, encouraging, and He loves me! He loves you, too! He will NEVER leave us or forsake us.
I CHOOSE GOD!!
