FAITH LIKE A CHILD ...WE ALL NEED SOME !!!


Hello Gwen here ... faithful friend to the Alexander family !!

I am going to tell you a story that I hope will encourage you in your prayers for Abe and the Alexander Family ... I had the privilege of meeting Emily over 2 1/2 years ago and it was an instant connection. We were destined to be sisters in the faith and journey together in the blessings of adoption ...

I will never forget the phone call that came from Emily when Abe was diagnosed ... I was broken for my sweet sister, yet I knew the strength with in her and her family ... I could see God shining through them all ... I told my oldest child Jeremiah about Abe and he was instantly captivated by his picture, his story, and his healing ... I could see something in Jeremiah's eyes that said he fully believed in God's healing powers... I told him about Emily's prayers for healing and he jumped right on board with praying for Abe ... Each time I would tell Jeremiah of a milestone Abe had conquered he just smiled as if God was right on track ... Then one day we were on our way to school and there is the fabulously created DEEP RED bush and Jeremiah knowing the love the Alexander family has for Texas Tech just thought this bush could be our reminder to go before the Father daily for Abe ... He stated that we would pray each day on our way to school for Abe and then on our way home ... It was about a month later when the leaves starting falling off the tree that Jeremiah said, "How cool would it be if by the time all the leaves where gone from the tree that Abe was healed !!" ... I paused and had to take check of my own heart ... I had never fully believed in that kind of miracle for Abe, but Jeremiah did ... He did in such a simple way ... He knows the power of the almighty FATHER, because honestly why NOT ... We have all read the bible ... We know of His amazing powers to heal ... We have read about His miracles ... Why do we doubt then today ...

Jeremiah just saw Abe's little Christmas video and was very proud of his little buddy sitting up so straight ... He still prays and stills believes that Abe is destined for greatness... You see Jeremiah sees the strength in Abe and in the Lord ...

Let's all join the Alexander family in prayer over Abe ... Let's go boldly before the throne and spill out our hearts !!!! I want to believe like my 11 year old believes ...

Isaiah 40:4-5 Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level; the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed; and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

Blessings sweet Abe ... so many love you and will pray and pray and pray for you !!!

Oh Emily! Gwen's post is beautifully written. I needed a good cry!
As you know, we have lived that kind of miraculous healing. In fact, I just posted about our miracle named Sam today. Gotta love God's timing.
You know you will always be able to count on our faithful prayers from Hong Kong!

What a blessing to have a friend such as Gwen...

God Bless Abe, and may God continue to bless Abe. He will.

Abe is a gift - you're family is also a gift to Abe... fate. You found each other, not by accident, but by His divine intervention.

Love you, miss you - Lor xxo

Lori said...

Emily, we are connected by adoption, mutual friends (the Everetts and Kiblingers, here in Tyler), stories shared from Kanakuk family kamp as we were encouraged to move forward with our adoption, but mostly our Lord, Jesus Christ. This is the verse I'm praying for Abe: "But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,I wait for God my Savior, my God will hear our payers." Micah 7:7 The "hope" we have in our Lord is a hope that promises to be done. Lori

Jen said...

Gwen and Jeremiah - thank you for spurring us to pray even more, trusting that God IS MORE THAN ABLE!

Em, was reading yesterday in Luke 7 about the Centurion who's faith AMAZED Jesus... he sent word to Jesus to just "say the word, and my servant will be healed." He knew that Christ HAD the authority to heal and TRUSTED him to do just that! Praying that we all will continue to ASK in faith from the one who is able to heal sweet Abe. For HIS glory. Love you

Misty said...

awesome Gwen. thank you for sharing i write through tears. very interestingly to me to read the title here...regarding child-like faith. earlier today my sunday school teacher from high school had written me an encouraging note and child-like faith is entwined in that story but its too long so i won't go into details. long story short i needed to hear this, and from her, today! thanks for encouraging me, and reminding me of the fact that God still does miracles, and i will pray for that miraculous healing for Abe! Matt 9:20-22
Mitty loves you Alexander crew!!!

Coneymama said...

Praying for complete healing of Abe and that I may have the faith of a child. Blessings to Gwen, Jeremiah, and Team Alexander!

TanyaLea said...

What a BEAUTIFUL story of faith. We all need to have that kind of faith, as we know w/out faith, it is impossible to please God... He DELIGHTS in this ever-trusting, ever-believing kind of faith. A total tear jerker. We will join in praying for Abe, for sure!

This was my first 'visit' to your blog and I look forward to perusing it more and getting to know you. I followed Kim's link from our mutual 'blog award' that she gave out. I'm so glad I stopped by and look forward to praying along with many other for Abe's healing! God is into miracles and we need to THANK Him for bringing this to pass!!

Blessings and Hugs! <><
