Have you ever surrendered – REALLY surrendered your life to God? I wonder if I really have. I watch Nathan as he sleeps. He is awake about every twenty minutes, but agitated. I surrender him to you Lord. I surrender all – to see your glory. I looked at the “conversation” between Moses and God:
Exodus 33:17-23 (New Living Translation)
17 The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”
18 Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.”
19 The Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh,[a] before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose. 20 But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” 21 The Lord continued, “Look, stand near me on this rock. 22 As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. 23 Then I will remove my hand and let you see me from behind. But my face will not be seen.”
I pray that Nathan would receive His mercy and compassion. I feel as though He has hidden me in the crevice of the rock and felt His hand covering me! He is amazing! Why would I NOT surrender all?
The swelling is in the personality area of the brain. Please strongly pray that his personality would not be altered.
Please pray that Nathan would not be agitated, that he would go with the flow (this contradicts prayer request #1!!!) because Nathan is not a go with the flow kind of guy!!!
Pray that healing would be quick, and discernment for the future
Nathan has said some pretty funny things today, like "Let's go bowling" and, "Mom, please get these (restraints) off me" - to which I replied; "Honey, I can't!"... His retort "You didn't even try!"
I don’t wish this kind of tragedy on ANYONE – but I wish you could feel the kind of support and love that we are experiencing! I love you all!!
