There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God;
So I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad.
There is a fountain full of grace and it flows from Emmanuel's veins,
It came and refreshed me; It came and it healed me; It came and it washed my sins away...
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad.
I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad.
Andrew's headaches are only relieved by morphine. He has asked me to sing over him and rub his feet. He talks very little. He is very tired of all of this. I have told him he will have to fight and not give up. I remind him of how determined he was to learn new skateboarding tricks.
Please pray for relief from the headache. Please pray that the infection leaves quickly. Please pray that Andrew keeps fighting.
Last night I asked if he wanted me to read to him. He said, "Read the Bible."
I read Psalm 27, 91 and 97. Then I told him the story of the persistent widow and how Jesus used this parable to teach us to keep on asking, keep on praying and not give up.
I told him somehow he had to look past the present circumstances because there will be an end to it. He asked me how he could look past what was happening. He asked me why God doesn't just heal him.
All I can tell him is that we have to keep praying and believing that healing will come because God doesn't lie and He is the One who tells us He is the Healer.
Then I sing some more and I rub his feet and his dad keeps cold cloths on his forhead and eyes. We thank God for what He has already done and for what we beleive He will do.
It is very difficult right now. But we still believe in a good God who is the Healer. We still believe for the miracle to be completed.
