For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 we are told to pray without ceasing. I know many of you have already been doing so and will continue to do so. The only way Brent will continue to recover is with prayer. He still needs prayer. He is still has a long road to recovery.
And God has answered our prayers. God works in mysterious ways and will continue to do so. The doctors told us that they could not operate until Brent had made it past the most critical time: 72 hours. At 73 hours an operating room opened up. The head neurosurgeon had 6 hours available as well as everyone needed for the team to perform the surgery. The only one who could have orchestrated that miracle was our Father. We may not understand His plan in Brent's life right now but we know that He will show us as soon as we are ready. Right now we are praying for guidance to help Brent and be there for him in anyway we can. We know that no one can comfort him the way our Father can so we are just praying that he can feel His arms around him.
Even though it may not seem possible God loves Brent even more than we do. He knit Brent together in his mothers womb. We praise God because we are truly fearfully and wonderfully made in His image.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8
We may not understand but we will overcome only with the help of God.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13
