Infinite Wisdom

February 19, 2003: Eli at Children's Hospital

John and I are in the process of writing a book to share what God has done in our lives.  I was looking back over the website updates that we had posted in 2003 during the first days and months following Eli’s accident.  On Day 14 we posted the following message that was sent to us by a friend …

“Had I been Joseph’s mother I’d have prayed protection from his brothers; God keep him safe; he is so young, so different from the others.  Mercifully, she never knew there would be slavery and prison too.

Had I been Moses’ mother I’d have wept to keep my little son; praying she might forget the babe drawn from the water of the Nile, have I not kept him for her nursing him the while?  Was he not mine and she but Pharoah’s daughter?

Had I been Daniel’s mother I should not have pled, Give victory!  This Babylonian horde…godless and cruel…don’t let them take him captive…better dead, Almighty Lord.

Had I been Mary…Oh had I been she, I would have cried, Anything O God, anything but crucified.

With such prayers importunate my finite wisdom would assail Infinite Wisdom; God, how fortunate Infinite Wisdom should prevail”.

- Ruth Bell Graham

One of the beautiful things that has happened since we began Tiller Family Ministries, is that we are seeing God’s Infinite Wisdom prevail in Eli’s life.  What a blessing that I can experience that in my lifetime.  To God be the glory!
