Psalm 145:1 - I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Kyle had is eye doctor appointment today. Dr. Hitner again said that Kyle's eyes were perfect. She said his vessels had grown all the way out through stage 3 and his retina is completely attached! She said he should be checked when he is 2, that he might later be nearsighted. I was so excited that I forgot to ask why she thought that. I am not sure if I even care - I was so excited that his eyes were perfect! she had a resident with her today and so she was explaining to the resident about Kyle's history and she said she had never seen a 23 weeker like Kyle with perfect eyes. and as she left the room she said to the resident "I'm not sure how he skated by" I quickly tried to throw in "it is b/c of God". I'm not even sure if she heard me.
her not hearing me reminded me of something I am learning. God is glorified. God is glorified in Kyle. God is glorified not b/c I mention to many that I prayed for kyle's eyes and they are perfect. God is just glorified in Kyle and in his eyes.
I also prayed for Kyle to not have a brain bleed, he did, then I prayed for it not to get worse, it did, then I prayed for a miracle - that the MRI would miraculously be "normal". I thought, okay God - I couldn't have set it up any better for you to be glorified. kyle has a need, thousands, literally thousands are praying and even more are watching, so now when you come through and heal kyle miraculously, everyone will raise their hands in praise, know you "DID IT" and you will be glorified. sounds good huh!?
well the MRI wasn't normal. and you know what I am learning? God is glorified. Kyle is perfect - perfectly created by his father, HIS GOD who is glorified b/c of him. I am learning that his ways are not my ways and even when God doesn't do what is on our to do list that we offer up in prayer - he is still glorified. I am learning so much about God that i did not know before but the strange part is that as I am learning I am still not understanding. I suppose that comes in time.
I do give praise to God for today - for kyle's beautiful eyes.
