Healing Is In Your Hands

It's been a heartbreaking day. As I write this, I am lying beside my 5-month old baby on a hospital bed. He's had a fever reaching 39.5 degrees during the last 3 days and has been on a round-the-clock dose of Paracetamol. My head spins with the doctors' explanations of possibities and yet still unclear diagnosis. All i know is that my baby is still so small to suffer these needle pricks, and to bear the pain of an abnormally swollen lymph node that these doctors could not explain. Shiko is already worn out of crying in pain, and hunger, and fear. His eyes plead, "Mommy, take me out of this pain!" ... But I couldn't do anything but hold his hand and tell him that "Mommy's here" ... I stayed close to him and still tried my best to calm him until I found myself singing :

🎶How high, how wide... No matter where I am... Healing is in Your hands. How deep, how strong. Now by Your grace, I stand. Healing is in Your hands. In all things, we know that, we are more than conquerors. You keep us by Your love.🎶

After hours of endless crying, Shiko miraculously closed his eyes and slept when I started singing this song. My tears flowed and I felt like falling into the arms of Jesus as I sang this song repeatedly. With every word, God's love started to fill me. I felt peace. Not because my circumstance has changed, but because I know that I am in the very presence of the God who loves me. The God who loves this child more than I do.

In my devotion today, the LORD spoke:

"When Jesus arrived at Peter’s house, Peter’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. But when Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her. Then she got up and prepared a meal for him." - Matthew 8:14‭-‬15

"Hope does not come from belief in power; it comes from trust in a Person. When we don’t understand what Jesus is doing, we must seek to know Him more." -- #SheReadsTruth

Tonight, as I rest and try to sleep, I have decided to put my baby's healing in the hands of Jesus. I do not need to understand why He is allowing this to happen. I rest in knowing that He loves us, and because of that love, it is safe to trust Him.

Please pray for our family as we go through this season. May we experience the peace and presence of the Lord and may Baby Shiko heal according to His will.
