Held in his hand

It feels hard to put into words how I feel about Fathi. He is less than two months old – so small, so beautiful, a world of possibility ahead of him. Seeing him lying there in the middle of wires and tubes and machines doesn’t feel right somehow. My heart melts as I look into his little brown eyes and tell him he’s not alone.

His nurse explained there hasn’t been any change since last Thursday. He improved a little last week, but is still in a critical condition. We really have to trust Fathi into our God’s hands. He is fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image; he is loved and known more deeply than we could imagine; he is held in the hand of the God who never slumbers or sleeps.

Please continue to pray for this little boy who is becoming so special to all of us here at Shevet.
