He will redeem.

Tiny 20 month old Alex snuggles up against my chest.  My heart cries out, 'why is this happening?  Why is he still losing weight after living at GSF for almost 5 weeks?  Why will he still not eat very much?  Why does he have no will to live?'  Then I stop and I remember.
Precious Alex
I remember when Leticia. '"For I know the plans I have for her", declares the Lord.'*
Leticia Before
Leticia Now
I remember Philip.  'For my plans for him are good'*
Philip Before
Philip's 13th Birthday {A couple days ago}
I remember Isma and Moses. 'For I won't let evil and disaster win against Isma and Moses.'*
Isma on arrival at GSF
Moses Before
Moses and Isma Now
I remember Richard 'For I have given him a hope.'*
Richard Before
Richard Now
I remember Gracie  'I have given her a future.'*
Gracie Before
Gracie Now
I have to think, that if God could redeem Leticia, Philip, Isma, Moses, Richard, Gracie and so many others, he can redeem Alex.

“For I know the plans I have for Alex,” says the Lord.  “Plans for good, not to let evil win against him, to give him a hope and a future.” ~Jeremiah 29:11

Please join us in prayer for little Alex.

  1. Thank you Carolina for remembering God's ability to redeem the hopeless....reminding us all that what we see as hopeless, God sees as strong and abundant. Your faith is a blessing to us and I know blesses your heavenly father who knows your heart better than you can express to us!
