In “A Life Free of Worry,” Joshua Saefkow writes, “My wife and I were stunned. We came to the ultrasound with anticipation our child was healthy. The doctor informed us our first-born daughter had several cysts on her brain, which would result in several different types of mental illnesses. This diagnosis sent us into a whirlwind of worry. What will her life be like? How will we pay for all her needs? Where can we find direction to help her? Worry consumed us.”
. . .Several months after the initial report, we returned to the doctors for a checkup. But this time was different. We were not worried, anxious, or scared. In fact, we were gaining confidence in our preparation for parenthood. We were ready! In between visits to the doctors, my wife and I decided to bring our baby girl before the Lord and trust in His control. He has a plan. We are not God. We submitted ourselves before him and thanked Him for the gift of being parents. The doctor ran the tests and reported to us that every one of our daughter’s cysts were gone. My wife and I sat in awe of God’s wonderful provision. He did not have to heal her, but we knew He would be enough regardless of the circumstances.” –Jim L. Wilson
