Deaf Baby Hears
It still feels strange to say out loud- our daughter is deaf. To be honest, it still doesn’t fully seem real. Like what? How can this sweet, perfect baby not hear me? She never heard me tell her how much I prayed for her when she was in my belly, she never heard me welcome her into the world, she’s never heard me sing her to sleep-and the hardest to handle- she’s never heard me say “I love you”. Sometimes I worry the darkness and silence must feel overwhelmingly lonely and scary for her at night. I pray my touch and presence is enough to reassure her throughout the day.

What loving and praying parents for their child. So full of hope.
Reminds one of Jesus who did everything well while on earth and will one day fully heal all who love Him.
The promise of a new earth, new heaven and healing for the nations still await its time to be fulfilled but the promise stands firm.
At one time people were overwhelmed with amazement at what Jesus did – it will happen again and those who love Him will be full of joy and healing.
People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” (Mark 7:37)
Be not too proud of a handicap, weakness or deformity for such is counterproductive in being healed by Jesus.
No wonder Jesus came when He did as most individuals wanted to be healed. If Jesus were to walk the halls today in the United States most would say they are too proud of their handicap and insulted Jesus would offer them healing.
Although Jesus did bump into the excuses individuals made and thus that did not really want to be made well. Yea weird, but there are many who enjoy their sickness, sins or past bad experience because of the attention they gain or as an excuse to get out of the responsibility of life. Before King County Courts ran me out of the town of Enumclaw, like Jesus, those who did not want to be made set out to persecute because their cover of darkness was blown. It was this animosity that King County Prosecutors (Prosecutor Dan Satterberg and gang) used to abuse the legal system for selfish ends.
As the scripture below records the healed person turned into a dirty little rat that caused trouble for Jesus. All because Jesus healed him and told him to stop sinning.
When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” (John 5:6)
…Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”
The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well. (John 5:14-15)
Unfortunately, a lot of folks do not want to be made well either of their handicaps or sins.
Do you have ears to hear as I have heard? I am ready and humble; ready to be healed Lord Jesus.
