Is anything too hard for the Lord? NO

Just to let you know Luke has been struggling a couple of days with what seems to be a bit of a cold, he is congested and has a runny nose. He didn't really need any extra oxygen until last night and again tonight. He has been doing a great job eating through this sickness which is a blessing, today during his vital stim therapy he ate at least 25 bites of food, the most he's ever eaten. His Speech Therapist was very excited about his great swallowing. She also started bringing pictures of food so that he could make choices to let us know what he wants to eat. He did a pretty good job of looking at the picture of the food that he wanted to eat each time.

Once again my favorite devotional Deserts in the Stream has ministered deeply to my soul, I'm praying that you too will find comfort in reading this passage:
Is anything too hard for the Lord Genesis18:14

This is God's loving challenge to you and me each day. He wants us to think of the deepest, highest and worthiest desires and longings of our hearts. He wants us to think of those things that perhaps were desires for ourselves or someone dear to us, yet have gone unfulfilled for so long that we now see them as simply lost desires. And God urges us to think for even the one thing that we once saw as possible but have given up all hope of seeing fulfilled in this life.
That very thing, as long as it aligns with that we know to be His expressed will - as a son was to Abraham and Sarah - God intends to do for us. Yes, if we will let Him, God will do that very thing, even if we know it is such an utter impossibility that we would simply laugh at the absurdity of anyone ever suggesting it could come to pass.
"Is anything too hard for the LORD?" No, nothing is too difficult when we believe in Him enough to go forward doing His will and letting Him do the impossible for us. Even Abraham and Sarah could have blocked God's plan if they had continued to disbelieve.
The only thing "Too hard for the LORD" is our deliberate and continual disbelief in His love and power, and our ultimate rejection of His plans for us. Nothing is impossible for Jehovah to do for those who trust Him.
from Messages for the Morning Watch

God is so good to remind me not to give up on the miracle of Luke's complete healing. Sometimes as mentioned in my last post it's easy to get discouraged that his healing hasn't come in my timing. I realize that God's timing is perfect, therefore I have to come once again to completely trust that God knows what He is doing. Finding peace in His timing is so comforting.

Please pray that Luke will get better soon. Also be praying for his muscle tone issues, we have some Dr. appts. coming up to discuss what to do, we will need great wisdom in making the right choices for Luke. One last prayer request is for myself, I'm really having a hard time getting to sleep at night, therefore I'm not getting very much sleep each night, please pray that I will be able get to bed earlier and go right to sleep. Thank you for your faithfulness, you are amazing!

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

I just love the devotional "Streams in the Desert." Thanks to Cindy L. I have a new one that has been a huge blessing too..."The One Year Book of Hope" by Nancy Gutherie. It is just as good. I am praying for Luke and you.
In Christ,
