  1. Becky, I relate to the fear of not being able to see after surgery. Glaucoma caused my right eye “to take early retirement”. I had surgery to put a stent in to prevent any further damage. Wearing a patch except when administering copious drops was disorienting, disheartening & fearful as to what the future would look like. ( Pun intended). My husband had to lead me by the hand or guide me with his hand on my back & literally be my eyes as we searched for Tylenol or went out to eat. We had to stay in a hotel as surgery wasn’t local for us. The experience showed me how God leads us sometimes by the hand, sometimes with a gentle push & is always our vision of Himself. Would I rather have my 20-20 sight back? Absolutely! BUT GOD heightens what is needed for me & in me & knowing He is greater than all my fears is a wonderful awesome comfort. Be Now My Vision was a favorite hymn before my issues but now it brings giggles of God’s sense of irony & I love it even more. Blessings! May we all cling to Jesus as our guide!

  2. This was just what I needed today. I have recently had cataract surgery and I still having some wierd vision problem. Although not completely without sight, mine is blurred and distorted. I will trust in the Lord to clear up my vision. Thanks for your encouragement.

  3. AMEN!!! Thank you for sharing this. God is so good and faithful I love him so much. God has done so much for me I can’t begin to praise him enough.

  4. Thank you for sharing this uplifting message with me and others today. I agree with you and the author of your special song. Jesus makes anything contrary to the Word of God or anyone out of step with His Will and plan for your life – Tremble.

    We serve an awesome God and He is able to do anything but fail.

    I love knowing that the Holiday Season seems to bring out optimism in more people than usual. I enjoy seeing little girls and boys plan to make sure they are not on the “naughty list”, and it makes me smile.

    We all get a new slate at end of 24 hours but we get a complete new year of redemption on January 1, 2022.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    May God bless your steps and your decisions.


  5. I had a serious autoimmune disorder that could cause me to go blind overnight. After years of medications, I am presently not having those symptoms. Our Lord works in His time and His healing comes in many forms.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful story and giving God the glory.

  6. Sitting here with tears in my eyes as I read this. First.. love the song Tremble but most importantly I love to be reminded of our miracle working, living God. Thank you for sharing your story.

  7. Becky,

    God sometimes sidelines us to get our attention. He wants us to be still & focus on Him, His goodness, mercy & grace. Giving Him all the praise He deserves. Often times when we are down, sick or recovering from surgery all we want is to be well again quickly. We think about our jobs, house work, or having fun. He will use whatever He can to get our attention. Once He has our attention & our worship He may allow the healing to begin. He knows we’ve learned the lesson of that trial. No matter what you are going through now God’s redemptive love can & will reach you. Just search & reach for it.

    Blessings 🙂

  8. Becky, in your obedience, God met you, some times we have to do the things we don’t feel like doing to get the healing we are so desperately needing. Worship is always my saving Grace, immediately tears when I drift and return, and in that moment, I feel like I’m floating, my feet are planted but I’m floating. It was then that he carried me! Love you friend! #GodVision!
