Another day of discouraging news.

Another day of discouraging news. The neurologist - an optistmistic one at that - said today that Dillon is showing the early signs of CP, because of this Dillon has a 90% chance of developing CP. So only 10% chance that he won't, but that is 10% without God's healing hand being taken into consideration. I figure he must have at least a 50% chance of not developing it when you account for how many people are praying and asking God to make him better! We will know by one year of age if Dillon is going to have it or not. If by that time the CP has not developed they will comfortable saying it will not. For the next year, this will be added to my list of specific prayer requests on Dillon's behalf. There are so many specific prayer needs I honestly do not know where to start and which ones are most important, but God knows. I believe if I make it a point to pray specifically for all of Dillon's needs God will hear and answer. Ro 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Yesterday in Sunday School we were going over James 5, and there is a verse in there that talks about Job. Job suffered so much in his life and yet remained faithful to God. We were talking about a timeline, the Bible is not too clear on how long the span was that Satan was trying Job. It may have only been a matter of days and in that time Job lost all his animals, all of his children and their spouses, his wife, his health, etc.
Another blessing from church yesterday was the song we sang in the morning:
When We See Christ
Ofttimes the day seems long, our trails hard to bear,
We're tempted to complain, to mummur and despair;
But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
All tears forever overin God's eternal day.
It will be worth it all whe we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.
Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
We're tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
But there is one in heav'n who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problem- just go to Him in pray'r.
It will be worth it all whe we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.
Life's day will soon be o'er, all storms forever past,
We'll cross the great divide to glory, safe at last;
We'll share the joys of heav'n- a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, we'll lay our burden down.
It will be worth it all whe we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

HI, I can relate to God using songs to encourage your heart...He has done the same for me in our journey of raising Ezra :) I am praying for you....from one mommy of a Mircale to another....
I understand your fear of CP and all the unknowns....I appreciate your heart and faith in God to KNOW the future and His power to heal!!! I also believe and pray for healing for Ezra...God right now has been teaching me to take one day at a time....doctors can give so much for our minds and hearts to process, it can and IS overwhelming...stay at REST in our God's loving arms...
We are in the midst of dealing with Ezra's CP...there are varying levels of CP, did you know that? I am praying for your precious Dillon....
IN HIS peace,
Liz
