"Believe"...the Lord has blessed me with this word in several situation the past 8 months. It stems from this verse, found in John chapter 11:40. "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?" I tend to gravitate to this word. If you were to come to my house, you would see a large wooden "Believe" sign hanging on the wall in the living room. Appropriately placed underneath this sign, is an old trunk with several pictures of Abigail (both hospital and healthy) a top the trunk. There have been countless situations that have raised over the past 6 to 8 months that I have had to just say, "Okay Lord, I believe."
One of those situations that I have had to believe in is the support group I have formed. There was a lot of prayer and preparation that went into Mother's Encouraging Mother's of Eosinophilic Children, but I am proud to say that we have had our first meeting. I met with two mothers of children with eosinophilic disorders this past Thursday (July 30) evening at Panera Bread in Fayetteville. Both of the other mothers live in Fayetteville. One has a 5 year old son with EE and asthma and the other has an 8 year old son with Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (eos in his stomach and small intestines). It has been a privilege and honor to have met these two ladies. The Lord has abundantly exceeded my expectations already. I really never thought that I would meet another person with an eosinophilic disorder, let alone sit across from two other ladies going through the same struggles as I have been through.
For those of you in the midst of a trial, just remember to believe in Him and He will take care of you and show you things you never believed imaginable.
