I would like to share something exciting that happened to me. It may be a small thing to others, but it was a big thing to me. I was talking on the phone to Doug at work, when it felt like I got something in my eye. I had to hang up the phone while I tried to blink out whatever was in my eye. I couldn't see anything, and it was impossible to get some drops in. Doug is always warning me, "Don't rub, or you'll scratch your eye." Well, I was quickly becoming convinced that I had probably scratched my eye from the beginning. The "object" had never moved the whole time I was trying to get it out, and I couldn't see anything.
So I had awful pain in my eye. I couldn't open my eye. I checked on the internet for scratched eyes. This was an adventure, since it was hard to see. Basically, everyone warned that you need to see an eye doctor asap. Doug would not be back till at least lunchtime the next day. There was no way I could get to an eye doctor.
So I began to pray. I prayed for healing and thanked Him for the answer. As I prayed, it occured to me that if my eye was in pain, perhaps my perspective was wrong about something. So I began to search my heart, and discovered that I needed to fully trust YHVH with this pregnancy. We have alot of unanswered questions right now. It had been very tempting to just freak out, but YHVH wants me to trust. I prayed for a right, biblical perspective, and then I went to bed. It was challenging to go to sleep with a painful, bloodshot eye, but I did eventually.
When I woke up the next morning, I could open my eye. It wasn't in pain at all, and wasn't even bloodshot. Praise YHVH! He is so good. He completely healed the scratch and I am so thankful.
