Normally I struggle with keeping this under five minutes but today I am so weary I will be amazed if I can keep my eyes open long enough.
My friends have just had a beautiful baby girl and she is struggling. The doctors expected that she was going to only survive a couple of hours. It’s now been 15 hours. Praise the Lord.
She struggles, she fights, she breathes. Each moment they, and we, wait. Just when I thought I had run out of tears, they begin anew. (here they come again) I am so grateful for the cuddle time that my friends have with her. I am praying fervently. I am wavering as I pray between expecting a miracle and hoping for one. The emotional roller-coaster is draining and I am 2,300 km away from them…
The truly amazing thing is that I’ve never actually met two-thirds of this beautiful family, yet I wish I was there to hug them all.
I love how friendship works… how it can transcend distance, time and even having never met the wonderful person you consider a very close friend.
I love how prayer can close the gap. How I can pray and God can move, 5 feet away or even 2,300 km.
Thank you Jesus for the beautiful gift You have given my friends in their beautiful daughter, Noel. Also, thank you for giving Noel such amazing, godly parents. Father I pray, with all that is in me, that You would heal Noel and bless my friends with a long life with their baby girl.
I am too far away to be a physical support, but I will pray for my friends every moment.
Please join me in praying for Noel.
