UPDATE on Baby Brody

"For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers..."
1 Peter 3:12

Aren't you glad we serve a living God?
One Who is always awake and Who is ever mindful of our problems?

"Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep."
Psalm 121:4

Praise our wonderful Lord for a Savior like ours!

Your prayers reached Heaven, dear friends...
all the way to the ears of Almighty God.

I just got an email from little Brody's grandmother,
and she said the surgeon just came in and said that his surgery could not have gone any better!!!

Will you please take a moment to stop and thank the Lord with me?

Here is a picture of this sweet boy right after surgery.

Dear friends, please keep praying!
The concern now is that he can come off the ventilator and be able to start breathing again on his own, without assistance.

To God be the glory for bringing him this far and for all He will continue to do for Brody!
Regardless of medical prognoses, prayer changes things, and God is not limited.
How wonderful it would be if His great heart were to be moved with compassion 
to the point of healing this dear child completely and allowing him to live to a ripe, old age,
in spite of what the family has been told!

"Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, 
according to the power that worketh in us..."
Ephesians 3:20

God wants us to ask Him for the things we desire.

"..ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full."
John 16:24

"And Jesus looking upon them saith, 
With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible."
Mark 10:27

"As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, 
Be not afraid, only believe."
Mark 5:36

Did you notice the color of those words?
Jesus Christ Himself said them to His disciples,
and He repeats them now to you...and to me, dear friend.

Let us keep the faith, and keep interceding on behalf of little Brody.
Lord willing, I will continue to post updates as they are made available to me.

Also, if God wills, I will be making a special announcement tomorrow concerning
something new that is coming to Homespun Devotions!
So, be sure and drop by to find out what it is.  :~)
