Yesterday, a patient and her husband were praying together very quietly in a corner of our waiting room before her surgery. She was both excited and anxious about her pending procedure to improve her vision. It seems she already has the most valuable vision which is vision of a different kind than eyesight.
Spiritual vision is defined many ways. The Bible describes the conviction of things not seen as Faith:
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen
One of the experiences our patients comment on the most is when their eye surgeon has offered to have prayer with them. Patients frequently post that they appreciate the opportunity to pray as much as they appreciate their eye care. Studies have shown that for some people prayer lowers their blood pressure and heart rate… without side effects!
Today is Good Friday. This date is celebrated by Christians as the day that Jesus Christ suffered and died upon the cross to pay the price for our sins. This Sunday is Easter Sunday! This is the day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from death to eternal life. Scripture tells us that believing on Him offers eternal life to us all!
The physicians and staff of West Georgia Eye Care hope that you have a very, Happy Easter and the blessing of vision of a different kind!
