I kneel beside all type 1 diabetics & caregivers in prayer.
My heart longs for a cure. I would love to see type1 be a disease of the past. BUT! I praise God for the technology we have these days and I also praise Him for INSULIN. 150 years ago mothers watched their children die of type 1 and would’ve given their life for a functional cure. They prayed, their tears flooded the caskets of their babies.
I praise you God that we have this wonderful invention of insulin & that we would be ever so grateful for it & never takes one day for granted. Forgive us our shortsightedness & our selfish human nature. Allow us to see your rich blessings & not to view type1 as a curse but rather just an inconvenience which WITH YOU We CAN & WILL CONQUER.
We also praise you for the hope of Heaven & knowing that someday ALL OF OUR troubles will be cast into the midst of the sea. We know that your perfect plan can not compare to our wildest dreams. We stand in awe of YOU & YOUR glory dear Father.
I pray that You, our good Lord will use type1 as a platform for our little warriors. That in some way their type1 will allow them to reach people for Christ that they wouldn’t normally reach. That their type1 would inspire & give them compassion toward others who face challenges. I trust that ALL things work together for good for those that love God & are called according to HIS purpose. We cannot see everything that God is planning for us or how all the intricate & seemingly unpleasant turns are working for our good but someday we will & we will praise him for his mercies & most wonderful plans. Waymaker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness.
My little guy was diagnosed @ age 1.5 & in DKA. We have used a meter for 4 years & finally got a DEXCOM which has been life changing. Growth spurts, colds, flu, night time lows, the whole kit & caboodle.
