Food for thought...
I have had people ask me how I could remain so faithful in God when even after years of prayers and faith David still struggles with many medical challenges. David may or may not ever walk, but maybe David's healing isn't about David's medical condition changing.
Through David and his "disabilities" the broken little girl inside of me has been made whole, my father who didn't believe in the same God we do found Jesus before he died, and through David's smile hundreds if not thousands of people around the world have been inspired and encourage through watching his journey.
So yes, David still has the same medical conditions he was born with 15 years ago. His diagnosis may never change, but just maybe his healing isn't about changing the circumstance we have been given. What if it's choosing to let God heal hundreds of hearts and souls with his story is what our journey is about?
Healing is not defined as something being removed it is defined as mending or growing sound, which has definitely happened in our lives and the lives of those around us through our experiences caused by David's condition.
