Miracle In The Midst Of The Midnight
George Matheson a blind Scotchman was engaged to a very beautiful and self-centered girl. The day for the wedding drew near and Mr. Matheson eyes were troubling him seriously and he sought out a Doctor to see what the trouble was.
When the Doctor had made his careful diagnosis he said to Mr. Matheson you are a strong man. You are not a baby. You want to know the facts certainly. Mr. Matheson asked, " What are the facts?"
The Doctor told him that in a few hours you will be blind. There is nothing that can be done to help your eyesight. You have dead nerves in your eyes and you will be blind in a few hours.
If there is anybody you want to see you have better make haste because the hours are just a few.
He sought out his girlfriend. She pitied him. She was quite sorry for him but he would understand that their relationship would be terminated that very hour. She didn't bargain to marry a blind man. His heart was broken and he went into the shadows and with Jacob could say all these things are against me.
But out of that black Friday, out of that grim sarcasm, out of that disappointment George Matheson became one the earths greatest preachers and authors.
The immortal hymn we often sing in the Church he wrote during that dark period in his life.
"Oh love that will not let me go
I rest my weary heart on Thee;
I give Thee back the life I owe
That in Thine ocean depths it flow
Mighty, richer, fuller be.
Well Pastor I would like to know I could overcome blindness and become a blessing to others. I like to know I could over come the heartache and overcome the rejection of one I love and beable to preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
But it seems like I have a problem with the little things of life. Something seems to fall apart on the inside and I fully understand what Jacob was felling when he said, " All these things are against me."
