I sit here blogging tonight and watching Philip asleep at my side. It is so beautiful to hear him breathe so soundly. I can't help but weep and remember this time last year, the struggle to see Philip and hear him try to sleep soundly at night. We had to strap the CPAP onto his face to help him during the times he stopped breathing while sleeping. Oh, our God is so good!
I was talking to one of my friends who has a massive amount of faith. I complained to her, that I hated to see Philip struggle at night with his breathing. I also asked her to pray for him and for me! I know God has called Philip to evangelize and speak to nations, but he will NOT carry a machine to help him breathe when he travels the nations. My friend agreed with me in prayer and I just again thank God for his healing hand.
Thank you all so much for your prayers on his behalf. Next week we will be meeting with the spine surgeon for follow up x-rays. I want to see a complete deliverance for Philip regarding his scoliosis in 2010. I know it is God's grace that his health has not yet been affected by the curve in his back. In my humanness I am worried that other organs in his body may be affected by the curve.
I'm also reminded that the God who gave hope where there was "no hope"; and the God who created a stomach, where there was no stomach is the God who still carries Philip in His hand. He is mighty to save!
