Life's Not Fair

Here is my true heart tonight.  It is heavy with a burden to pray for a family that is so near and dear to my heart, my best friend's family.

You see, this family is expecting a new member soon (mama is 29 weeks pregnant).  What a blessing!  Baby is growing, kicking, turning, hiccupping, being loved more and more with each day.  But, baby has some problems.  His heart is underdeveloped, growing outside of his body, and his lungs are not developed.

This family is off to meet with a pediatric cardiologist tomorrow.  And I can't help but pray.

God tells us, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)

I got to see this beautiful family (mom, dad, big brother) tonight.  The entire time I wrestled with the thought Life's not fair.  This mom and dad are two of the most faithful, God-fearing people that I know.  They love the Lord and live for HIM.  Why, oh why is this happening.

Then I thought of that mustard seed faith.  I must tap into that tonight.  I must pray and pray and pray, believing that I serve a God who can move mountains!  A God who can heal!

I ask that you be praying for this family. Pray that they would have a safe trip tomorrow.  Pray that they would ask the right questions.  Pray that they would be clear in mind to hear what the doctors have to say.  Pray for this baby boy, that he would be healed.  Pray that he would grow stronger each day.
