I have recently enjoyed Facebooking with my cousin in another state ("Grandma" in the following exchange). This beautiful story of answered prayer unfolded THIS way:
|OUR grandson who ALSO loves this song!|
Grandma wrote: Want to let you all know that D's son, Isaiah, age 5, fell Monday afternoon and broke his right arm (both bones). They did a closed reduction in the ER that evening but could not put a cast on due to the swelling. This morning Isaiah saw an Ortho doctor and they did another x-ray, which showed that the bones were ...not in good alignment. So, surgery is scheduled early tomorrow morning.
Grandma updated: Pray for Isaiah, as he is very upset and does not want to go back to the hospital. Pray that Isaiah would be able to see how the Lord is taking care of him and that He is with him always.
Grandma wrote the following day: Isaiah is home from the hospital and doing well. The bones are aligned well. Part of a cast with slits put on because of the swelling. Goes to Dr. tomorrow to get full cast on hopefully. Thanks for all your prayers...definitely helped!
D wrote later that day: @1:30 this afternoon, Isaiah was singing "Oh no never let go. through the calm and through the storm. Oh no never let go, oh Lord you never let go of me!"* at the top of his lungs! He now has experienced first hand that God is taking care of him. Praise God!!! And thanks to all who prayed for him. He was sooo much more at peace today!
*Isaiah's version of Matt Redman's – You Never Let Go
Today I will still be praying.
And today I will be singing: "Oh, no! You never let go. You never let go of me!"
