Stellan is out of surgery and recovering. Read here to get the details about the surgery, which was evidently both complicated, difficult, and successful. There are still many things up in the air for this family, and I know they are grateful for all of the continued prayers on behalf of their sweet, five month old little boy.
Right now Stellan is in surgery.
I know sometimes my own words don't seem like nearly enough, so I pray scripture, asking God to apply His words and promises to the situation. This morning I have been looking through the Psalms, praying different verses and lifting up Stellan and his family.
Psalm 91 says
If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your dwelling.
For he orders the angels
to protect you wherever you go.
They will hold you with their hands
to keep you from striking your foot on a stone.
You will trample down lions and poisonous snakes;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
We are wearing orange and praying. I don't know this family, and I doubt I will ever meet them, but it is my privilege to be able to lift them up, and beg God to cover them in His peace. I know God is listening!
