Now I Can See

By Susie Teramura

 

There she sits,

All 14 years of her

Getting swallowed up

By the big black

Doctor’s chair,

As he asks her to read

That line again,

And she tries,

“P, N, R, X, and T…..

Ummm…

That one I can’t see.”

 

And sure enough

It is declared,

That she needs

Glasses to see well,

To see clear.

 

And how amazed

And shocked she is

To see how

She is meant to see.

 

And I get it,

I have been there,

Having no clue that

A clearer world

Was out there.

 

And then I start thinking

About my soul,

And seeing,

And not knowing

The truth of things,

And how just maybe,

My view is

A bit blurry,

That I have settled

For things

Instead of healing,

And traded freedom

For another self -made prison

Of perfection,

And protection,

So I am calling out to you,

My very Great Physcian

 

Can you fix me?

Can you help me

See clearly ,

As I was meant to see?

 

And then You, Father,

Who love to

Give good gifts

To your children

Put Your glasses on me

And all of a sudden,

I look Love-ly,

I can love me,

And the lies

That assault my soul

No longer win the day

Because I can stand up

And confidently say

I see you 

My eyes are healed,

You no longer

Have a hold on me.

 

I belong to

The Most High God

The King of Kings

He has healed me,

And now I can see.

He has set me free.

 

And so I can walk

the heights,

And see the view,

Go wherever it is

You call me, to.

My eyes have been

Fixed and made new.

 

She puts on

Her shiny black frames,

Smiling at me,

Cute as anything

Ready to face the world

With new confidence

And bravery-

 

My eyes pool just a bit,

Now my girl can see!

And I hear You

Quiet in my soul

Echo it

Right back to me.

 

 Psalm 30:2

Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.

 

Psalm146:8

The Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous.

 

Isaiah 42:16

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them

  1. Susie,
    I was taken back to my childhood, astounded when at age 11, I got my first pair of glasses and I had no idea what I’d been missing! Glasses are so cute nowadays, I bet she just looks adorable! And oh, but our view is so limited here {especially in our own lives} by what we can see of what God has planned for us, isn’t it? I pray for eyes to see myself and my life as God sees it and I’m praying the same for you! Excellent words today, friend! xoxo

    1. Valerie – 🙂 I got mine in Jr high too! Yes I totally agree- If only I could cement these glasses to my face! haha! I keep trading them out for the old comfortable ones- Longing for the day that His truth and word become my norm and this old way of thinking becomes the uncomfortable way! Thanks for the encouragement today!
