Help Us Lowrd

Help us Lowrd!

Our little girl, Bethany, has the chromosomal disorder known as Down Syndrome. But that is not who or what Bethany is. In her essence, Bethany is made in the image of God and reflects His light and love. Disabilities should never define us. Each and every individual has limitations and strengths. In fact, as Christ’s followers, we spend most of our lives striving to become all that God created us to be. Here is one little insight she taught me the other evening.

Bethany and I were praying before bedtime the other night. Her cute little way of pronouncing words could never be adequately portrayed by written word. I listened intently as she began. “Oh Gowd, pease help us with de day, Gowd, pease help Sarah, Aaron, Finley Cohen, Lowrd, pease help Papaw, Grandma, Lowrd, pease help Micah, Adi, Jesus, pease help Noah, Sarah, and Gowd, pease help Josh, Moriah, Lowrd, help Aunt Melody, Grace, Isaac, pease help Bekah, Hope, Sean, God, pease help Mommy, Daddy, Lowrd help everybody in de world, Gowd, pease just help us all de time! In Jesus name, Amen.”

Guaging Bethany’s perception and hoping to give her a fuller understanding of God, I hesitantly said, “Bethany that was a great prayer! You remembered so many people to pray for. God wants us to do that- but do you think maybe we should thank God for what He has done for us and not just ask Him for help?”
She just looked at me in her Bethany way, incredulous I had just asked such a foolish question. Opening her mouth with pure faith she replied, “But Mommy, God loves help. We need help, so I just askted Him."
And that was that. At least in Bethany’s mind- and the Word of God.
“Our help is in the strong name of the Lord, the Maker of all heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:8


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

With a little work this would make a great devotion for the Upper Room. When I get out of the hospital and back on my feet I'll be happy to help. I couldn't find the other article you wanted me yo critique, but I"ll get back. If you haven't heard a response in a couple of weeks let me know.

Cindy, her honest simple faith filled with a pure wisdom is aweosme. I used to work with children with severe disabilites and have worked with children with down syndorm- what an honor that was! With Love, Cindy

What a beautiful story of a precious child! No wonder Jesus claimed that it is the child (not the adult) that is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. We grown-ups need reminders like this to keep us from getting too big for our britches! You do write well in touching a reader's heart!
