A few weeks ago, my husband noticed distorted vision in one eye.
Yesterday a surgeon inserted a gas bubble into the back of his eye where it will press against a macular hole, causing it to grow back together.
The challenge: my husband must remain face down for a full week!
If my husband's only view of things came from that damaged eye, parts of the true picture would appear blurry or distorted.
God gives us a similar "picture" of spiritual vision when he talks about people who have planks in their eyes (Matthew 7:1-5).
Planks of bitterness, arrogance, or selfishness make truth appear blurry or distorted.
The answer: "face-down" humility and prayer.
I'm grateful physicians can restore my husband's physical vision* and I'm grateful the Great Physician can restore our spiritual vision.
Is bitterness, arrogance, or selfishness distorting your view of life?
Humble yourself and tell God you need eye surgery.
* I know God is the source of the physical healing as well
