Floppy Baby

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord , do not abandon those who search for you.

Psalms 9:10 NLT

Morning Men of God,

As some of you may know, our family welcomed our 6th baby to the Wheeler clan. Baby Benjamin was born Oct 16th, and has evened the score 3 boys and 3 girls. As exciting as his arrival was, there was a lot to be learned about myself in the process. When my son came into the world, he was limp. My heart sank as the nurses called the "Floppy Baby" code. People rushed into the room to work on him. My heart sank lower. Keisha and I had not been able to name our beautiful baby boy yet. And I immediately thought, "This is why we couldn't name him". But then I snapped back and remembered that God was in charge. As much as I loved this little guy, God loved him more. So, I put aside my fear and began to speak to my son. At the sound of my voice, he perked up, regained his color, and began to breathe on rhythm. You see, the outcome of the story being in my favor is not what makes this story great. It's the presence of God in my time of fear. He did not abandon me. With everything going on within his immense creation, he was present with me at Tampa General. So I encourage you today to seek the Father and trust that regardless of the circumstances, he will NEVER abandon you. In your anxious, confused, or fearful moments, stop and breathe in his presence. He is there for you.

Love you Guys
