It's officially been a year that Noah has been waiting for a new healthy heart. To be honest we never imagined we would still be waiting. Our life has essentially been put on hold as we wait close by for a miracle to happen.
The waiting can be unbearable at times. It's a lot of time to sit and ponder what exactly has to unfold in order for our son to sustain life. The only thing that get us through, is knowing that God does his best work in the waiting.
Waiting is hard. It requires patient endurance, faith, strength, steadfast hope, and willing obedience. I fall short of most of these on a daily basis. I'm thankful for how the Lord has protected Noah this far and really have no reason to doubt his plan.
Jason and I marvel at the ways God is using this story. In the last month I have had two separate strangers come to our house to purchase shirts and bracelets. They have either seen the news story or seen someone wearing a shirt and have a desire to support our family.
God is at work here in ways that we may never even know about. This is what helps us get through the wait. This is what helps us get up in the morning and go about our day. We hope and pray that a heart would come soon. Until then pray that we would persevere and wait with confidence knowing that God is doing his best work in the waiting.
Noah had an appointment yesterday and everything looks the same. Nothing to be concerned about. We are always grateful for uneventful appointments.
