Wings like eagles

Last week, Hassan was moved from the Sheba Medical Center general paediatric ward, back to the Intensive Care Unit.

Today his aunt explained this was due to a collapsed lung. He also has a fever today and the doctors will have to wait for this to resolve before he can have his catheterisation.

Despite all this, Hassan and his aunt were in a great mood. It continues to surprise me to see how upbeat and positive they are after such a long hospital stay. Yet again, I left Hassan’s room with a smile on my face, encouraged and refreshed by our visit. The strength and joy of Hassan and his beautiful aunt is yet another reminder that God is at work – His strength goes far beyond our own.

This morning in our meeting we sang a song called Everlasting God and, thinking of Hassan, the lyrics came to mind again, see them below and please pray that God would continue to be the strength of Hassan and his aunt, lifting them up on wings like eagles….

“You are the Everlasting God
You do not faint, you won’t grow weary
You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles”
