I kept asking the question, “so, based on ______ with Sledge, what has precedent shown you with kids like him?”
I wanted the specialists to tell me something I could anchor myself to; though I knew that being a mama to a micro-preemie would include many visits where you answer, “no, not yet” to every progress question asked. I wanted a little affirmation I think 🥴
Due to Sledge being sick for almost 2 months + some other factors, it just felt like he wasn’t getting the chance to really even TRY + prove his strength, curiosity, + awareness. I remember telling the specialist worried about his growth, “this isn’t his baseline. Just wait!”
Sitting in the doctor’s office after Christmas, just talking to Jesus + telling Him how I need some more control over the situation for Sledge’s sake😂, I could feel the shift.
“Don’t ask them what’s probable, ask Me what’s possible.”
I took a deep breath.
Don’t ask what’s probable based on precedent; ask what’s possible because you know the Provider—THAT is a very different question.
And at Sledge’s PT appt. yesterday, she literally said, “this is not even the same kid I’ve been working with!”
Are all problems solved? No but it was a great reminder of the Promise-keeper and a HUGE victory!
HE IS GOOD FOR IT.
regardless of how it shakes out, you’ll never regret a foundation of faith built on His promises.
Old: “what’s my probable outcome?”
NEW: “What is possible with Jesus?”
Shift it. Stand on it. Speak it.
We all have different areas where we are walking through some uncertainty, wrestling with some fear, or working through hardship + we need a baby step to believe that the big step is possible.
Talk to Jesus about it. Prepare + be proactive knowing the precedent but always, always, always know—nothing is impossible with our God.
Miracles are His normal + His precedent.
P.s. Seeing others take baby steps often gives us faith for our own so I figured I’d share 🤍
“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” -Matthew 17:20
