For those who have been following our journey for a while, you would know that I have written a book about our little boy Sam and the way God has held our family in the palm of his hand. It includes the blog entries during this time as well as many personal prayers, reflections and the miracles that unfolded during that time. I have submitted it to a publisher without any success but will continue to submit it as God leads. I am now submitting it to another organisation and I am hopeful that God will do the rest. Thank you Sue and Jess for taking the time to read and edit the book and offer you most valuable advice. It was such a blessing to me that both of you offered your time on this.
Would you please pray with us that this work God asked me to write will be published to glorify His name? That the book may be out there to encourage someone who is in need of hope in a world that sometimes offers so little hope and encouragement.
We are not in denial. We know that Sam's journey with Hypoplastic Left Heart is far from over but we know that God could heal him any minute to bring glory to himself. Already we are seeing miraculous signs like Sam not needing so much of his medication to thin his blood. The dose should be increasing as he grows but remarkably it has decreased!
No he hasn't received his new heart yet. However, at this point in time we just have to close our eyes, trust him and hold on for the ride. The bible says:
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things, we cannot see. (Hebrews 1:11)
We may not yet see the evidence of Sam's new heart but we trust that the God who promised his healing, tells only the truth. How and when is up to God, not for us to decide. In the meantime we will do what he has called us to do and not worry. He had it all planned in the beginning anyway.
