Here is the video about Eliot that I mentioned in the post below. Mike used the video in his sermon last Sunday at church about suffering. It just reinforces that God is sovereign in ALL situations. It reminds me to see every day as a gift from God. This couple really had perspective about celebrating every day God gave them with their son. You better get some tissues before you watch this one. It’s hard for me to watch because it makes me realize how much I take for granted all the blessings in my life.
With the last two years with Evan, God has taught me this lesson. He’s been through a lot , but God has seen him through, guided us to the right doctors and given Evan an wonderful spirit to tolerate his circumstances. There have been so many families we’ve met, in way worse scenarios.
God is good, God will help us through and God knows what we are capable of and wont’ ever put more on us than we can handle.
This video, made me cry, but also reinforces the fact that, God uses every situation to reveal something to us in each of our lives.
You and Brandon have also had a wonderful spirit through everything that has been thrown at you with Evan. I am sure you all have had your times of doubt and frustration but I have seen your wonderful outlook and strength. You guys are a testimony to God working things for good and giving us strength and joy in spite of our circumstances.
