“Thou God seest me.”
Our clouded eyes perceive the dark
which lies ahead. We sense the fear
of what we know we cannot see,
and feel the doubt that leaves its mark.
Does no one see? Does no one hear
our cries that question what will be?
Then comes a light to chase the dark
with waves of joy, till gone is fear.
For faith with opened eyes can see
that Providence has made its mark;
that God has seen; that God does hear.
So look to Him for what will be.

Walking into uncertain territory can be a fearful thing. The
doctor seems unprepared or at the least perplexed about the
deteriorating situation with these eyes. This does little to comfort
me. I have only the good grace of my God and that is enough.
