Every Minute Is A Miracle

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Romans 11:33-36
 
For the past few weeks a young widow's new baby has been struggling for life after a terrible bout with meningitis. Severe seizures and brain damage forecast imminent death when baby girl Ellis was taken off the ventilator on Saturday.
 
I don't know how long this will go on, but if you'd like to witness a miracle, click here for 
This link will take you to yesterday's update. Fish around on Sarah's blog and click on the Older Posts link in the corner if you want to catch up on the story. Click on the Blog tab to see if more has been published since.  
 
Of course I know you'll be praying now for Ellis and Sarah and the days ahead. Also pray for the people who surround and support them, especially the team of writers for A Widows Might, which Sarah is a part of.
 
Above all, don't question, it's such a waste of energy and such a torment. Instead, worship the Lord. It's fitting that the phrase I highlighted from Romans 11 echoes from the book of Job, a man who worshipped the Lord when faced with unthinkable loss and suffering.

Can you fathom the mysteries of God?
Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do?
They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know?
Their measure is longer than the earth
and wider than the sea.
Job 11:7-9
 
This is a lot to ponder today, but I hope you will join me in praying and bearing the burden of this young widow. As usual, if you receive this post in your email and the links are blocked, simply click on the title and you'll be taken to my blog and can go from there. ferree
