“In all my Life, I have seen you. In all my Life, seen your works. In all my Life heard you, heard your love. In all my days, you have been close, right next to me. But until I saw that You were the Master of life and death, I had not known Your depth. Today my song is of the depth of Your Love. The Depth of You.” @ez37 music 2011
Today Naomi is opening her eyes. This morning she “tracked” Wendy with her eyes. A slight movement that spoke to the world of the healing grace of God’s mercies. I can’t type that without crying. She is moving more now. She is coughing more to clear her lungs. She is breathing on her own now, with the ventilator offering pressure support only. The doctors have said that we may try to take her off the ventilator completely in two or three days. The fever we asked for prayer about is under control. God’s glory surrounds our baby now, and we are unafraid.
Her eyes are open.
As a worship leader I have seen God’s mercy, played out in the surrender of people that come seeking Him. Seen it from the stage. And while I have considered myself a Christ follower in the past, I have not known the depth of God’s love… really known the mercy and grace, and peace, until I asked God to heal my baby girl. Until my own working and praying and touching, anointing healed my baby girl. God in me… with me. Emmanuel. There is a difference in hearing… and knowing. There is a difference in a surrendered heart, and an abandoned heart. On May 20, we abandoned our hearts of all that was left of this world and asked God to fill it. With His power. With His will. With His love. He has healed my baby Naomi. We wait on His glory. Gladly wait. This journey we are on is taking us ever deeper into God’s love. We are finding the depth is… beyond our understanding.
We are going to have such a party.
