Giving Thanks While Lamenting

Leading off this morning with LIFE!

Harper Rose Schultz was born on June 29 at Saginaw’s Covenant HealthCare, nearly four months before her Oct. 23 due date, weighing less than a pound.

Born at 22.5 weeks and just over 11 ounces, Harper was not only a micro-preemie, but the smallest baby ever resuscitated at the Covenant HealthCare Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Just three weeks ago, on Nov. 4, after 128 days, her parents, Emilee and Patrick were finally able to take their daughter, home. She weighed a healthy new born 6 pounds 10 ounces, 

“She’s such a blessing and we are just so thankful,” Wendzik told reporters upon leaving the hospital.

Patrick Schultz said the moment was a “glimmer of hope” in an otherwise very difficult year.

“It’s nothing short of a miracle,” he said.

Listen to those father’s words: blessing, thankful, hope, miracle. Those are theological words. Those are God words. Those are words of faith. The world needs those words spoken today.

Jason Meyer – Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist – Author of “Don’t Lose Heart”

 

Jason joins us to discuss his new book, “Don’t Lose Heart – Gospel Hope for the Discouraged Soul.”

Reasons to lose heart are so prominent.

Is what I’m facing vs. what I have “enough?” – no, never.

I am not enough, I don’t have enough and I can’t do enough. But Jesus said to take heart because He has overcome the world; Biblical hope says the reasons to take heart are always greater than discouragement; Christ is greater.
