It's been a week and a half since the accident... sometimes it all seems like a bad dream. There's not an hour that goes by that I don't think about my brother and cry out a silent prayer and plead, to Lord help him, and heal him to walk again. It's hard to sleep at night because I want to know every minute how my brother is doing, is he comfortable? Is he sad?....I've said "this is hard" more than I ever have before.. this is real and this is big stuff..
And yet even here in the midst of the pain, God is faithful. In the midst of the struggle, God is good.
I can see his fingerprints in every part of my life and I know I see his fingerprints in Jeremy's story as well. I don't believe God causes evil or bad things to happen, but I believe when bad things happen, God can work.. even in the bad.
And I am choosing to believe, choosing to have faith, that God- the healer and great physician is strong and mighty- and doing healing in my brother's life. And I believe right now that in six months, or in a year, that Jeremy is going to have a testimony of the Lord's faithfulness for Him. And I will have yet another testimony of the Lord's loving kindness and graciousness.
So praises right now: 1. Jeremy got to Shepherds- one of the best rehab centers for spinal cord rehab in the world on the seventh day after his injury (which is very fast). 2. Jeremy has developed no post op complications, infections, or blood clots (which is amazing). 3. My parents- my mom and dad- can be in Atlanta and support Jeremy while he is recovering and I can go visit him from a distance and support him in other ways.
So guys, I choose to believe in faith, that God is working on healing in his life. And I ask that you join me in prayer, to a God who is good, a God who is faithful, and a God who is loving-- that he will be present more than ever in my brother's life and that he will bless and protect him. Thank you for every prayer, because I know it makes a difference.
