A New Year's Miracle!
This morning I got a call that changed my day! My friend whose son has been in the hospital (mostly in ICU) since December 3rd called to say he will be going home soon! HOME! I could hear the joy in her voice. When Matt went to the hospital, the doctor told the family that he didn't expect him to live 48 hours. Many times during his stay in the hospital, they had moments when he was close to death. He had multi organ failure.
My friend's faith never wavered. She was very aware that she could lose yet another son, but she was always aware that God's will would be done! More importantly, she trusted God that whatever He chose to do was right.
Prayers started from so many places, and have continued. Even nurses in the hospital were praying and let Linda know they were. She told me that it not only comforted her in dealing with a critically ill child, but it renewed her faith in people. In America. She said that in a time when we hear so much about removing Christ from everything, to know that people worldwide were praying made her realize that there are always people who are faithful to Christ.
Continue the prayers! And thanks from a grateful family and their friends!
But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 13: 5-6
