Clear vision restored

When’s the last time you or anyone you know had a religious experience at the Department of Motor Vehicles? That’s right, a religious experience at the DMV! 

A year prior to the renewal of my driver’s license, the clarity of my vision seemed to diminish. When I received my license renewal notification, it indicated that I would be required to take a vision test. That’s when I knew I needed to metaphysically address this issue more seriously.

I’ve always appreciated what the prophet Isaiah reveals concerning “the vision of all”: “The vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed . . . . Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness” (Isaiah 29:11, 17, 18). While the passage has a deeper, spiritual meaning, in a very practical sense that’s precisely what I needed: to see my way out of the obscurity of diminished vision. But had “that day” arrived wherein a book would heal me of such a difficulty?
