Last month during my yearly eye exam it was discovered that I had a torn retina in my left eye. When I asked if it was serious they said they were scheduling me for laser surgery the following morning. Amazingly I didn’t experience the normal warning signs. There were no flashes of light or noticeable vision changes. Afterwards I began to realize the blessings and just how fortunate I was that the retina hadn’t become detached. I was blessed to have scheduled, and kept my yearly appointment. And I’m blessed to live in an age of laser surgery where I could continue a normal lifestyle immediately.
As is my way, I began to pray over what had happened and what I could learn from it. I immediately realized that I was four weeks into a nine week run of events where my focus has been on recognizing God’s beauty through nature.
During the past month I’ve really championed God’s creation but never once took into consideration that it could only be achieved by the miraculous gift of sight.
Sheepishly I now have the opportunity to share my brokenness in maybe taking that gift for granted.
Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.
As always, remember you can send an anonymous email to firstname.lastname@example.org for prayers and encouragement.
The three-step release of the ‘Worship in Spirit and Truth’ album is scheduled to begin on September 07, 2018 with the ‘Worship in Spirit EP’. This will be followed by the ‘Worship in Truth EP’ on September 21, 2018. The EP’s will only be available on the eddymann.com website. The ‘Worship in Spirt and Truth’ album will drop everywhere on October 5, 2018.
It’s been quite some time since I released any new songs for the church and I’m really excited about this project. Some of these songs have become a staple of my worship events over the past three years and so I’ve seen how God has used them in the lives of others. And now I look forward to sharing them with all of you!
