The baby boy that my wife Amy is carrying in her belly right now has not been given any chance to live once he is born. Every doctor and website that I have been to has stated this unfortunate outcome. There is not, to my knowledge, one person that has survived for any amount of time with this condition. I know some people would say well then let’s pray for the family as they begin now until September 14 to deal with the loss of their son. Let me pause and say – hold off on those prayers for now. As this past weekend has brought to my attention in a very real and relevant way – our God conquers death. Hello? He thrives on the impossible! Let’s not get caught up in believing only what doctors say when the God who conquers death hasn’t had any say. We will know what God wants to do when this child is born. So please pray that God would form this little boy’s brain and close the skull and scalp. This isn’t supposed to happen – I get that. But dead guys aren’t supposed to come back to life either!
Some people probably think that Amy and I are setting ourselves up for heartbreak. No – we are asking God to give us our heart’s desire. If He doesn’t – He is still God and He is still good.
How do you want to be remembered? Praying for God to comfort us (He has already promised to do that) or having a part in praying for the impossible? Please help us pray for the impossible! We will leave the rest up to the God who hates death so much that He overcame it.
Psalm 40:3 – “And He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”
Our goal is that many people would see that we believe God is good even when life is not, begin to fear (respect), and trust in the Lord.
Thank you for coming in this journey with us! We need you!
