I am a fan of the NIV version of the Bible but every once in a while, I look at the Message version and just love it.
Proverbs 3: 5-12 - "Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own.Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. It's the child he loves that God corrects; a father's delight is behind all this. "
Yesterday we (that would be my ex husband and I) took our son for a vision test because he said his eye was "hurting". I figure since everyone in my family has glasses, he would just fall right in line to get some too. He has perfect 20/20 vision in one eye, but the other one.. well he referred us to a specialist on the 7th of July. Seems he can't see at all in that eye, it's all a blur. No scratches, nothing that he could see was wrong and he seems to think that maybe something is going on with that eye that just doesn't make since. To look at him though, he's fine. Still running and jumping and talking like nobody's business, but last night I prayed hard! It's like a parent's worse fear I guess to possibly have something wrong with their child. But I look up Proverbs 3 last night and I know that God has my back on this one. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, don't try to do it on your own."
Say a prayer please for my little man!
