There are very few things I haven’t been able to accomplish or obtain in life with a little hard work and perseverance. This applies to nearly everyone who is willing to work hard in life. We live in a world where so much is possible for those who pursue their dreams!
This is not to say that things have always gone my way, but I have rarely been in situations so out of my control that there was nothing I could do to change the outcome.
As I have pleaded with the Lord to spare Tori, as I have tried to bargain with Him (I’m human, after all) and convince Him that He should allow her to be healed here on earth, it has occurred to me more than once that this situation is so unbelievably out of my control.
There is literally nothing that I can do to change the outcome.
I cannot find words for my desperation. I often fall silent when I attempt to pray.
When I look at her precious face and I watch month after month as Krabbe changes her outward appearance (eyes more closed, face becoming more relaxed) as well as her inner functions, I feel so desperate. So powerless.
No amount of money can fix her damaged brain.
No amount of love can restore her to perfect health.
No amount of hard work and effort can make a difference in her nervous system.
I have never felt so powerless in my entire life.
As we have said before, we will desperately pray for her complete healing until she is healed here or in Heaven.
But we also recognize that God’s plan could be bigger than anything our earthly minds can conceive, and we choose to surrender to His sovereign and wise plan.
This is the meaning of true surrender, of total trust. I have no choice but to place her in HIS hands because there is nothing on earth that can save her.
But He can.
Until His plan is revealed, we will love her fiercely, live life abundantly, and choose joy daily. She is worth it.
