“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken (Psalms 16:7-8).”
I am clinging to those verses right now. As most of you know, Emily and I have been home together for the weekend to be here for Ben and Jeannie and Toby’s funeral. Emily is heading back to Dallas tomorrow…actually today since it’s after midnight (Monday).
I’m anxious for Emily to get back to be with Trey. He continues to have fevers and tummy pain again. His skin is also worse than ever. The fever and tummy pain are most likely just related to the abnormal cells since his blood cultures continue to grow out negative. I’m really praying for the Lord to help Trey more than He already is. Please join me in praying for God to do “exceedingly abundantly” MORE than all we could every think or ask. Please pray his skin condition could be resolved and that the fevers and tummy pain would go away so we can move to the next phase of treatment for him. Please pray God lays His hand on Trey’s body tonight.
We trust the Lord, but are asking Him to do the miraculous in Trey. I just want him back home and our family back together…but as I preached this morning, God’s ways are greater and what He does, He does for His glory. So, in all things, we trust the Lord and pray He gets great glory from Trey’s life.
You are good and what You do is good. We know that You can do far more than we could think, ask or imagine, and we ask You to do that in Trey’s life today. Do the miraculous! Heal the skin!!! Destroy the cells!!! Bring life back to my son!!! Make him whole!!! We love You Lord and trust You…but You tell us to ask of You in faith…so that’s what we are doing! We ask because You are the only One who can do what’s needed in Trey! We need You and we ask You to act mightily on Trey’s behalf. We love You Jesus and it’s in Your mighty name we pray these things,
Pastor Freeman, I don’t personally know you or your family but I have a few good friends that do. I have been following your blog for little while now and please know that we are praying for your family and perfect healing for your son. I’m sure you get many messages from family’s that may be going through something similar with their children letting you know the comfort you bring them by sharing your experiences and your family’s complete trust in our Almighty God. My writing is a little different. I can’t nor do I want to pretend that I understand what you all are going through. I do want to let you know that through your writings and truly walking out your faith in an unforeseen future, God is totally using your family to transform lives. To make us parents want to discover Him more so that despite anything life throws at us we are prepared and like your familys example, able to trust He who has a plan and future for each of us. I know that through you sharing your experience, I am learning and teaching my children that even when I don’t understand what God is up to, I will continue to praise him, not only for what he does or doesn’t do, but because of who He is. Thank you for sharing, you are continually in our prayers.
