Back in January, before I ever heard the term meningoencephalitis, I read Moments with the Savior by Ken Gire. I had a feeling that 2012 would be one that God would teach me something big, but it was just a feeling. Now I know a little about what He was up to. It was like he was saying Read this. Read it again. Now get out the Sharpies and put this on the fridge.
God did an amazing work in Max’s life while he was sick. We are so thankful and feel so blessed that he made a complete recovery. Our prayers don’t always get answered in the way, shape, or form that we ask, but God uses everything we go through. No matter how big or small. Sometimes just for us. Sometimes for us, plus a crowd. I’m humbled to hear how God has used our story, how He has supplied the fish and loaves.
We are not guaranteed a life without uncertainty, fear, anxiety, loss, or pain. But He gives abundantly in ways that we can’t even imagine, if we trust Him.
Did I say I knew this before? Sure. But I know it a little more now.
I wear this necklace to remind me.
