Teen’s Blog JF22- Bright Eyes for the Word


“Lord, I do not know a lot about You yet, but I want to read Your Word to know You more.”

This line is a prayer of a mid-70s grandmother I go to in church with. We know her as Nanay Francing. I am very blessed by her testimony. It may be a very simple prayer but God has granted it sweetly.

She said she received the Lord as her personal Savior and Lord when she was in her late 60s. During that time, she has been suffering from blurred vision due to aging. Despite having that problem, she uttered that faithful prayer. Now, in her 70s, she told me that she can she clearly see everything written in her small Gideon-sized Bible. She wears no glasses. Before she told me that whenever she reads, she’d see the words sticking together.  Imagine that! She even read me some passages and I am just blown away that she really can read small writings. And what is amazing to me though is that her ability to read the Word is not because her vision was completely restored. She suffers from difficulty in seeing things from afar, even to the point of unrecognizing people a few feet away from her but when it gets to her reading the Word, she has no problem at all. What blesses me more about her testimony is the fact that I can see in her eyes the joy of just sharing what God has done for her.

May we always love His Word like this woman and believe everything it says. The Psalmist says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
