When I got home tonight my wife was in tears. She told me that our 2 month old granddaughter was currently legally blind. Currently, because there is an 80 percent chance her sight will develop later. That is not 100 percent. She is struggling with other issues as well. We will know in April. Hard to live through those three months.
The anchor for my mentor and my daughter and her husband is that none of this took God by surprise. Works for my wife and me as well… That does not make dealing with it easier on a daily or monthly basis. However, we know that there is purpose in what He does.
Working through Mark this morning I noticed that all of the people that came to Christ for healing were desperate. I tried to put myself in their place a leper, a withered hand, an issue of blood, a daughter dying/dead, deaf with a speech impediment, blind, and another blind from birth. We deal with things like that either personally or through our association with friends who are.
In either case our main, no our response has to be Hebrews 11:6 and prayer. Desperate prayer.
