An update on William and our family:
William is maintaining these days which is good news. Currently, his vision seems the worst impacted which we are getting tested later this month. Funny how things change: I am not concerned with William gaining skills anymore. Now I am concentrated on his not losing the skills he currently does have. We can still walk for which I am grateful. He is unsteady and falls quite easily but still walks and usually wants to hold your hand when you are outside of the home. I am not sure if it is his vision, balance or both that cause him to feel unsure but it is a change from the child who would escape from the house every chance he got.
There are a lot of things swirling around this head of mine. God’s will has been a big one. I do not believe that God wishes evil to occur. God does not will the death of innocent children, but in a world where suffering and tragedy will occur, He uses these things when they are placed in His hands. “All things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
God not only promises to walk with us, but God promises to walk through us to come to the aid of others in need. God uses people to accomplish his goal. We are his hands and feet. If we listen to the nudges of God’s spirit and pay attention, we will find others being used by God to answer our prayers. Maybe we will also become aware of the ways God seeks to use us to answer the prayers of others. The key is paying attention and listening. I pray that I will be aware of things and that this PAIN will not be wasted but will glorify his name.
