Seeing Is Believing…Really???

This afternoon, after lunch, as I was sitting in my little office, some certain thoughts about brain injury began to cross my mind and cause me to start saying to myself, “Hmmm…”

Welcome! Please take a dive into my brain waves!  🙂  (Let Us PRAY!)

The way brain injury effects each person is unique to him or her, even though it may be very similar in many ways.

In the Bible we read 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1; NKJV).

Like what happened to me, when a person experiences TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and lives to tell about it, that person’s faith (if he has any) grows much deeper in a way, basically, that only suffering brings. (Stay with me.)

You might have heard this quote before – Susan H Connors, President/CEO of BIAA, said, “Brain injury is often invisible since changes are on the inside.” That’s SO awesomely (my own word) deep and true!!

Brain injury isn’t always obvious and apparent to the naked eye. So it is with faith – it isn’t always what we see or understand.

Let me leave you with these two thoughts: 1) Seeing is not always believing and 2) What you see is not always what you get.

Faith and traumatic brain injury fit so closely together, much like a hand in glove. 

I’m sure, by now, you already have a lot more thoughts running around in your head. But, for now, I wanted to stir these waves in your brain.

Happy Thinking!!  🙂

    Wow, Patti! This was ‘eye-opening’ for me to see the connection between ‘the evidence of things not seen’ and TBI. Because nobody can see TBI but we have to not only believe that it is there–we (normal people) have to remember that it is there. Remembering is active. Faith is active. They both are required to understand the effects of TBI. God’s sovereignty is the same way…we have to believe that it is in play even when we don’t see it.
    Thank you for your post today!
