“The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD has made them both.” (Prov. 20:12, ESV)
A few nights ago, I was watching Netflix and working on a spreadsheet when I noticed that my vision began distorting my work. When I tried texting my family to ask them to pray, I had a blindspot in the left part of my vision. Since it was late, I went to the ER. At this time, there were wavy lines on the left edge of my vision. They checked my retinas, which were apparently fine, and decided that I probably had an ocular migraine.
Appointments with specialists were made, my vision cleared and has been fine. There was no pain.
I realize we are fallen humans with bodies susceptible to illness and disease. But I am not surprised that this happened just a few days after a mountaintop experience after a church ladies’ retreat about resting in and trusting in God.
Of course that means I will be given plenty of opportunity to.
The test always follows the lesson.
I did panic a bit, but I knew that no matter what happened, it was not a surprise to God and He would give me grace to get through whatever He led me into.
Maybe ocular migraines are my new thing. Maybe it’s a symptom of something deeper. Maybe it was a weird fluke that will never happen again. I don’t know.
But I do know Who made my eyes and my vision, and I hope I can keep turning my eyes of faith on Him.
Because I know that vision will only grow brighter and clearer.
