We have shared before how there are certain words that carry deep meaning for us in this journey. Infinite is one of those words. Infinite. Never ending. Limitless.
Our God is infinitely merciful, infinitely loving, infinitely faithful, and infinitely powerful.
We pray for many people and events: Lydia is not the extent of our requests to God. We pray for families that are grieving, families that are suffering, couples that are struggling, individuals who are dealing with a difficult diagnosis, a devastating loss, or discerning a new direction. We pray, and He can handle every one of our requests. Many people around the world pray. He hears us all. We pray to a limitless God with an infinite capacity to hear and respond.
We have been encouraged by Lydia's progress. Prayers are being answered, as she recovers. She has a much longer attention span, and she now seldom sleeps during the day. She has some periods of less or no responsiveness, but many times, she is alert and responsive. And she is often happy. We are so thankful for her smiles and laughter. (There is still very infrequent little sounds when she laughs, but we believe sounds will come. Just like we pray and believe that speech will come.)
Now to Him who is able to do, immeasurably more, than all we ask or imagine, according to His power, that is at work within us. To Him be the glory! Amen.
