Today is a big day for our little guy...
one that in many ways I have been dreading but know we need to walk through.
The first of three big days of testing for Parker.
3 hours of visual field testing and a meeting with the Genetic Counselor.
am I scared of what the results may be?
At the same time....
God is coming so near us,
Once again we are looking and searching...
it is SO easy in this world to focus on what is around us....
what we can see, touch, feel.
Honestly, if you asked me which sense I would be most afraid of losing,
hands down I would say my sight.
But what the Lord has been speaking to my heart is about VISION.
You know what Scripture says over and over again?
Put our faith in what is UNSEEN.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18
To fix our eyes on JESUS
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
That the vision that we have now is NOTHING compared to what we all WILL see
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known
1 Corinthians 13:12
So are we praying for Parker's healing?
With all of our hearts.
At the same time we are learning to listen and submit and understand the promises of God more deeply than ever before.
I am beyond thankful for my little BRAVE boy who loves that Lord,
sings praise songs with all of his might even on the playground....
who prays with a heart and depth that astounds me,
who begs God to let him run an orphanange someday.
His eyes are already fixed on what is important....
and for that I am so very thankful.
Thanks for praying for us today...
