A Front Row Seat

Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.” Mark 8:25 (ESV)

I borrowed this title, “A Front Row Seat,” from one of my favorite people, Dabo Swinney. It explains perfectly what I have been through as a witness of God’s restoration in Jacob. It has been 3 years and 3 months since Jacob’s injury and we are still seeing the restoration from “A Front Row Seat.”

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

Applying Proverbs 3:5-6 to our daily lives reminded us to not to depend on what we were seeing in the “now” and to trust the path that would lead Jacob to, the ending we prayed for, total restoration. I made Jacob a promise a long time ago. I promised him that I wouldn’t stop pushing him until he could do the things he was wanting to again and I promised him I would never stop praying for complete healing. God prepared us for the tough journey and we have remained faithful in in trusting him. Very few people have had a “Front Row Seat” to God restoring Jacob. The ones that have, have seen him from the beginning to now and they have witnessed a miracle.

Counting My Blessings,

About Susan Browder

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”  Hebrews 11:1 I grew up in a small town in Alabama called Boligee. I am a wife and a mom to two sons, Nick who is 24 and married to his sweet wife, Mallory, and Jacob who is 18.  My husband, Nicky, is a person of who I am so proud. Our lives changed forever on September 6, 2014 about 7:00 pm. Our son, Jacob, had an accident that would deeper our faith in God and challenge us in ways we never dreamed. My prayer is that our story will encourage others in their struggles with life altering experiences. My writing will be our testimonies but more than that it is about how we have a loving, caring God that carries us through the most difficult times of our lives.
