Since Peyton was born, I have always said, "How does one not believe in God after having a child?" I believe the miracle of pregnancy & birth is truly God's greatest gifts to us. As Peyton has grown the past two years, I continue to be amazed how this child teaches me about God's grace & goodness.
After Nolan was born, I was reminded that I serve a God who heals. I was reminded of this lesson during my quiet time last week as I read Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (I have blogged about this book in a previous post). It states,
"I am a God who heals. I heal broken bodies, broken minds, broken hearts, broken lives, & broken relationships. My very Presence has immense healing powers. You cannot live close to Me without experiencing some degree of healing."
Isn't this true? Our God heals us & many of you prayed for a complete healing for my little baby boy. Thank you, because I was praying for the doctors, surgeons, for Nolan's reaction to anesthesia, & for a 'peace that passes all understanding.' Looking at the reality of the situation & what we were facing, I did not often pray for a complete healing for Nolan, but you did (as many of you have told me). Thankfully, God heard the prayers from you. I continue to be grateful. Many prayers to you & your family this weekend.
