On this journey we are on, I have, on more than one occasion, doubted God’s goodness.
I have questioned whether or not He knows what is best for me and my family.
I have wrestled with fears and given a lot of kickback about where He has led us and what He has asked of us.
And just when I think I’ve come to the end of my rope – I get a text message or email from one of my friends telling me something precious about their son or daughter’s hope for the Happy Baby.This is Reuben.
Every night at dinner, Reuben’s family prays for the Happy Baby.
He asks God to help the Happy Baby feel better.
He refers to the Happy Baby as his family’s ‘other baby.’
And he makes comments like, “Can we go visit the Happy Baby when he gets better?”
The other day Abigail asked her mom if the Happy Baby was still in the hospital.
Her mom said yes.
Every morning on their way to school, Rebecca and Joshua pray with their mom.
In the middle of their prayer the other day Joshua suddenly yelled out, “Mom! Don’t forget to pray for the Happy Baby!”
The other day while he and his family were driving to the zoo, Jackson saw a picture of the Happy Baby on his mom’s phone.
He said, “Mommy, the Happy Baby… Let’s pray for him.”
At dinner one evening Max’s dad began to ask the blessing. He started, “Dear God…”
And Max repeated, “Dear God…”
Luke believes in God’s superhero powers.
Luke believes that God’s superhero powers are going to bring the Happy Baby home soon.
So, my sweet Happy Home friends, when I read stories like these, how can I doubt the Father?
The same Father that each of these precious children believes in and trusts in.
They don’t ask why… They pray in faith.
And then they simply trust and wait and watch for what God’s going to do.
I think I’d be wise to do the same!
“Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
(Luke 18:15-17 ESV)
