I'm due for an eyetest. I can see in the distance and I've got glasses for the close up bits – failing all else there is a magnifying glass in the kitchen drawer. But I have a new problem – the middle distance. If I'm sitting where I usually sit the television is becoming blurred. I'm o.k. on closeups, but crowd scenes are blurry and I can no longer read with ease the words that whizz across the bottom.
It is rather like my life as a Christian. I can cope with today with a bit of support from friends and family.I can even see fairly clearly into the immediate future. I know what I expect to be doing in the next few weeks. And the far distance is o.k. too – my salvation is assured and I expect to spend eternity with my Saviour. It is the bit in between that is the problem. In two days time I go for even more tests than I've already had. There could be several outcomes, but though some could be worse than others none of them are going to be easy. All are going to involve even more tests, cameras in funny places and general unpleasentness. I was asked the other day if I still have ambitions. Of course I have, but they don't involve being stuck in hospital and being talked down to by people who are trying to be kind.
But whatever happens I am assured of one thing. We were studying Micah last night. We meant to complete the book, but only managed chapter 6 . However we did read the book to the end. It finishes with a wonderful message which I intend to take with me into this middle distance.
Micah 7 18 -20
There is no other god like you. O Lord; you forgive the sins of your people who have survived. You do not stay angry for ever, but you take pleasure in showing us your constat love. You will be merciful to us once again. You will trample our sins underfoot and send tehm to the bottom of the sea! You will show your faithfulness and constant love to your people, the descendants of Abraham and of Jacob, as you promised our ancestors long ago.
