April is National Autism Awareness Month.
Out of all of our son’s multiple disabilities, autism reigns over them all in terms of complicating his life, and ours. The blindness, the seizures, the eating and sleeping issues – everything – would be easier if he could communicate with us and we with him.
But there is hope. Jesus is never caught by surprise:
There is no one who perplexes Jesus. No thought or action is unintelligible to him. He knows its origin and end. The most convoluted psychotic and the most abstruse genius are open and laid bare to his understanding. He understands every motion of every mind.
John Piper, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, p. 52.
