Prayer Request - Don't Be Afraid
"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:10
Why is it that our children seem to inherit our bad traits rather than our good traits?
As some of you know, my daughter Heather has been suffering from what we have recently found out are autoimmune hives. She becomes covered head to toe with blistery large red hives that cause severe pain all over. She says that she can only shower with cold water because anything else feels like hot coals on her body! She has been running a low grade fever, pain and swelling in joints, and extreme exhaustion. She went to the specialist Friday and he believes she has Lupus. He wants her to get a biopsy of her hives to confirm. I pray it is not Lupus! I know how difficult this disease can become. Please pray for Heather and the family at this time. She has been suffering since April and it has continued to worsen.
We know there is a reason for all things and God is in control. Sometimes it's just hard to understand, but then it is not for us to understand but to have faith and place our loved ones in His tender loving hands.
