Open my eyes, that I may behold
Wonderful things from Your law.
I want to share an extra wee testimony today, which didn’t fit in with my main post. Forgive me for re-using the above verse, but it truly has been my prayer on many occasions. This was not to try to be super holy, but simply to be able to read my Bible.
I have always struggled with my eyesight and reading from childhood, in fact it was this that led me to be a poor reader as a small child requiring remedial help. My next threat to my ability to read came in adulthood when I was at university in Dundee; I was diagnosed with sleep apnoea which explained my struggle to stay awake to read.
The biggest issue regarding reading came in the 90s with a brain tumour which resulted in me having severe vision loss. But praise God that was reversed after surgery. My final eyesight trial really sneaked up on me in the last few years as my vision decreased again; resulting in me having to change my Bible twice for larger print up to Super Giant Print. Recent sudden vision problems lead to an examination by my optician which showed I needed further changes to my glasses. Having received these new glasses yesterday I am ecstatic…I can now read my smaller print Bibles from previous years!
Dear reader, I just wanted to share how God has guided my eye care and given me the appropriate help. I am totally thrilled by His provision, meaning I can enjoy reading His Word more. What a wonderful Father God we serve!
