This week is the week of surgeries around our house.
I have to have laser eye surgery at 4:00 P.M. today. You see, I have glaucoma. Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty. It’s used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma. In my case my eye drops weren’t working well enough on their own.
Wednesday my 86 year old father that I live with is having cardiac ablation surgery. It’s a procedure that corrects heart rhythm problems. It uses a catheter that is inserted through a vein in the groin and is threaded to the heart to correct structural problems in the heart.
What would we do without modern medical advances? What was life threatening has now become every day outpatient surgery.
Our eyes and heart are very important to our physical being. God thinks so too. In fact He speaks of both in Ephesians 1:18 “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,”
Let’s all take care of our health. Let’s use our eyes to see the best in others. Let’s use our hearts to feel compassion for others in a broken world. Let’s rely on modern medicine and the skill of physicians to keep our bodies in working order. But more importantly let’s all rely on our God to be the one and only giver of life. From birth to eternity. Give your “heart” to Him and He’ll “see” to it that you never will miss a beat.
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Love and laughter,
