Robin Gudal: Wanting a Perfect Spiritual Vision – Albert Lea Tribune

EN (hard) ANCE by Robin Gudal

I have cataracts. I really thought when the optometrist told me in October that I was starting to develop them, and that in the next few years (in my mind five or so) we will have to keep an eye (pun intended) on them, that this would be right that years, not months later.

I am thankful for good eye care, and I know many of us are. Whether you wear glasses, sunglasses (to prevent eye strain), contact lenses, have had Lasik surgery, or are “cheating”, you are one of the 75% of adults who use some kind of vision correction. This equates to 164 million of us according to The Vision Council.

When Greggy and I first got married and had very limited resources (Ah, I remember when a BigMac, which we shared, was like going to a steakhouse!) And wit.

1 Corinthians 13:12, NIV. For now, we only see a reflection as in a mirror; then we will see face to face. Now I partly know; then I will know fully, as I fully am.

New Living Translation: Now we see things imperfectly, like confusing reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. Everything I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

This picture was so unique, it was all black, and you had to look at a certain angle to see the verse and then just like a picture of the eyes at the doctor, it came into focus. Then suddenly you couldn’t not see it. We all need adjustments at some point in our life, redirect, correction to see clearly, to preview 20 20. Once we have seen; we know.

I love the NLT translation; read it again.

Did you get the sentences: perfect clarity? The closing statement, “just as God knows me now completely.” It’s a promise, we are all known.

I know that right now my physical vision is impaired, but soon it will be clearer. Oh, how I need my spiritual sight to be 20 20 accurate. What a great way to start 2022! Clarity. Focus. Happy New Year, dear readers. This is my prayer for you!

Robin (Beckman) Gudal is intentional in life, an imperfect and imperfect wife, mother, chick, friend and disciple of Jesus.
