This appeared on my Time Hop today…
It hit me in a new way this morning as I realized that it might possibly pertain to our own lives now.
And I don’t think I want it.
At this moment, I just want my Tori. A healed, typically developing Tori. I don’t want God to use us without her.
Rationally I know that this life is not my own, anyway. God alone knows why all of this is happening and He can see the ending of our earthly story even though we can’t. He knows the plans He has for us, with or without Tori.
But that doesn’t mean that I want that right now.
This brings me back to a point of surrender because I am reminded that God can redeem any circumstance we may encounter. He can take the tragic death of a child and make something beautiful from it. In the case of Mr. and Mrs. Hershey, their inability to have children of their own created an opportunity to touch tens of thousands of children.
We continue to pray that Tori will be completely and miraculously healed here on this earth. That is our hearts’ greatest desire.
But, if we have to lose Tori here on this earth, then I desperately want God to have a great plan for us, a purpose for her precious life…a plan far greater than we can imagine.
