Can’t See Well

I’m learning in the concussion recovery process that sometimes I don’t see well. Indeed, on Monday I visited an eye dr who specializes in vision help for people with brain injuries. My appointment showed me some interesting problems with my vision that I wasn’t aware of – my peripheral vision is messed up, my depth perception is off & sometimes my visions gets blurry because my brain is tired. All of these difficulties have come from hitting my head really hard. 
Sometimes I think there’s a parallel truth that happens in our lives. If we go through a traumatic event, let’s be really careful that our perspective doesn’t get changed in negative & debilitating ways. Let’s be sure to keep our eyes on Jesus & our hearts tenderly in love with Him, being fully confident that He is working out everything to be a blessing & not a curse to us – Rom 8:28 🙂

Feel free to pass this along to any friends who might be in s difficult season!

In the Middle of Darkness

This morning I read about how Jacob dreamed about a ladder from heaven to earth & how God spoke with him about keeping Jacob safe, providing for him & returning him to his homeland – all at night time.
It seems to me that we frequently want to avoid what is dark, obscure, unclear & uncertain. We find comfort in the known, boundaries & what we can see, feel & understand. At the same time, we must admit that knowing God is most certainly the adventure of a lifetime, the most wild ride with the Infinite, overflowing with genuine love.
Jacob said “yes” to God, he accepted the unknown in the middle of darkness & began his awesome adventure with God – let’s GO!!! Say “yes” to God, even when you don’t understand, in the middle of darkness, obscurity & uncertainty. Genuine Love is waiting for your “yes” 🙂
