I am requesting prayer for my middle son - Jesse. He is my angel and my heart. June 25th, his 13th birthday, we went in for his 2nd Cystic Fibrosis sweat test. He failed it again. I am crushed. Our family has been through a trememdous amount of difficulty this year...I was just released from the hospital for kidney failure when we received the news. Needless to say, we are in shock. I have spent the last 3 days bawling my eyes out. We are seeing a Pulminary specialist on July 10th.
My prayers are that there was an error in the testing and he does not have Cystic Fibrosis. Through the short time I have dealth with this though, I have realized that when all else is stripped away, the only thing I have to cling to is Jesus. It is through suffering and trials that we broadcast what is most important in our lives the loudest. I know that the God I serve is an awesome God, no matter what the outcome of our testing. My son is the most spiritually mature child I know and he is a ROCK! He is ready to broadcast to the world what an amazing God he serves in spite of what may come in his life...he was not made for this world but for the world to come. This said, I request prayers from all who read this and know us for God's will to be done and for our family to have the strength to walk through the path laid out ahead.
Thank you all in advance!
