The theme in my personal study lately seems to be coming back around to believing God. As I was reading the other day, I felt led to pray for Jack's healing during these 100 days. For those of you who don't know, my 7 year old was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve disease 2 years ago and it is gradually taking away the muscle in his legs while making his legs more spastic. We are seeing a real difference in the last month in his ability to run and keep up with his friends.
Praying for his healing is interestingly enough something I have never done before. I really believe that the issue is so close to my heart, that I have feared how it my feel if God told me no. For some reason, it feels different now and I feel as though not praying for his healing reflects a lack of faith on my part to trust this God who has shown me over and over that He wants to do big things.
So I am going to take the next 100 days and pray specifically that God will heal Jack of this disease and restore his legs to full health and that we will give Him all the glory for it. I can't tell you how scary this is for me. Would you pray too when you think of us?
