Since the new year started, there have been two moms I know who have had their little boys diagnosed with cancer. It is heartbreaking, and they have a difficult road ahead of them.
Brady is one of three one-year-old triplets. Yesterday his mom and dad found out he has a tumor on his spine. Please pray for him, and his parents Megan and Matt.
Gabriel is a four-year-old with leukemia. His brother is one of my son’s classmates. When he was diagnosed three weeks ago they began chemotherapy almost immediately. Pray for him and his parents James and Joanna.
I share this poem because it has helped me through difficult and sad times in my life. I firmly believe that God is in control and we can trust his goodness and faithfulness, even if they are not immediately apparent. God loves these little boys even more than their parents do. Please pray for healing for the boys, and for comfort, strength, peace, and hope for their parents.
He Giveth More Grace
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!
