I have been praying for a sweet Angel since he was born. His name is Baker Troxler and when he was born via C-Section, due to his his cord being bunched up and he lost a lost of oxygen to his brain. This caused a lot of brain damaged and Baker wasn't able to suck or swallow. I prayed for him daily and he was really heavy on my heart one Wednesday night and our pastor just happened to preach on healing and he had no idea what was bothering me. He preached on when this child had died how God brought him back to life. 1 Kings 17:17-24 I just knew this was for Baker and I was so excited because I felt like God was giving me confirmation that he was going to heal Baker. A few weeks later, I went to revival and Bro. Kenny Morris preached on IT IS WELL. He talked about how the lady knew her child was dead but she had enough Faith in God that she knew that he would be healed and would be brought back to life. SHe laid him on her bed of Faithfulness. Although her child was dead, she gave God Praise!!! THen God brought this child back to life. 2 Kings 4:20-26. Again, I was like thank you God, you are letting me know that Baker is going to be okay. Then Baker started to get better, he finally got to go home. I just knew everything was going to be okay. After being home for one night and a day and a half, they had to rush him back to the hospital because he was having trouble breathing. He had aspirated and set up pneumonia in his lungs and the doctors told Abby and Drew that there was nothing else they could do. They decided to take him off the ventilator but would stay in a private room with him so they could be with him every single moment that he had left in his life. They were able to have his baby dedication in the hospital and also family was able to visit him in his room. They chose to stay at the hospital because they wanted to keep him comfortable. Well last night sweet Baker got his Angel Wings and I was so heartbroken because I just knew that his healing was going to be here on Earth but I guess God saw fit that it would be in Heaven. Yes, I know that Baker is better off because he will be able to run and play and won't need a feeding tube but I just had so much hope that he would be here on Earth with us and would receive his healing here. God did show me he was going to heal him, because now Baker has a brand new body!!! Please just lift up Abby and Drew because they will need it in the days, weeks, and months to come. God knew the plans of our life before he even created the world, so He put Baker here so he could touch lives and make a difference. He was only here for a little while but what a HUGE impact he made while on this Earth. I read a saying that really touched me and I thought I would share it with you.
"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives ...for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same."
This is so true!!! I am forever grateful to have been a part of Baker's life.
