This morning was spent in the retina clinic, having tests done and pictures taken of Paul’s eye. I am amazed at the technology available today, which can look inside your eye and get a perfect image of what’s going on inside. A bleed definitely showed up and the image was exactly what Paul had described seeing.
As I sat there watching, I started thinking how amazingly we have been created by a Master designer. The different vessels and neuro-transmitters were visible and there were so many. To think that all those little spider webs were sending messages from the brain to the eye and allowing it to function. This isn’t something that just happens by chance or evolution. This is God’s doing.
We are blessed in our time to have such great insight from technicians, doctors and surgeons. They have their hands involved in finding the right treatment for the malady, but there is still much to be learned. Some day many of the illness that plague us today will be a thing of the past, but as long as life continues, there will be sickness. It’s the result of our sin.
Not too long ago, Macular Degeneration was the beginning of blindness. I have an aunt that suffered from this disease and no longer has her sight. Now they can inject medicine into the retina and with many treatments eliminate the problem or at least make it better.
Our inner workings are so complex that even the best the medical professionals are boggled by it. There are so many intricacies within the human body. Strides will continue to be made in the medical field, but no one will ever know all of what makes us tick. Only God can create life.
Praise God for so fearfully and wonderfully making each and everyone of us in a unique and special way. Each layer is perfectly designed to contribute to the makeup of His kingdom. Thank Him for making you a part of that. Use your gifts and talents to serve Him and share the wonderful news of His salvation.
