Gabriel's Blood Platelets

ok. I shall keep this post short..

My nephew, Gabriel, has been admitted to hospital because of low blood platelets. The highest or normal blood platelets count can go up to 150 but after blood test ydae, he only had 7 in count.

I am kinda distressed by all these health issues that are going on in my family. Frankly speaking, I am really not sure how much more can I take. I need to trust God of cos, this has always been in my mind.

But I think now, I can literally feel the kind of stress and disturbance that Job had... I am definitely not in a worse situation than he was in. Well, I think I can only identify with his feelings.

Please pray that Gabriel will be fine. He is only 5 years old and he is a super hyper boy. Can't afford any knocks and bleeding... there are a lot of bruises and tiny red spots on his body now. And there is blood in his urine.. please keep praying that his blood platelets count will increase. Today, a blood specialist will be seeing his case. Hope that everything will be fine. Most imptly, I pray that my family will know God soon. Just can't bear this burden on my shoulders anymore. Can only claim Matt 11:28-30.

Hmm... I'm quite bad at this but I believe we all can empathize somewhat what you are feeling now. But maybe let me just say, God is a fair God. He doesn't shield us from anything special. Both christians and non-christians both will face negative situations from time to time. But having said that we should continue to keep in faith and believe that God has a purpose in all these. Imagine others that are facing the same or even worse issues than you but do not believe in God. Who can they turn to? At least we know God will sustain us and there is a good reason why all this is happening now just that its not revealed to us now or we cannot comprehend it with our current wisdom. Just thinking about this, makes me feel more compassionate to those who undergo same "trials" as me in times and yet do not know God. So take heart, sister, and yes, leave your burdens to Jesus.
