I Bombed!! :o(

Have you ever thought you said something really amazing and encouraging to someone, then thought back on what you said, and in reality it was totally horrific? Well, that is exactly what I did this morning. After reading the plight the Freeman family is going through concerning their precious baby Kayleigh, (Click the words, she really needs prayer) I was an emotional wreck. Hence, instead of leaving an uplifting message letting them know that their precious baby girl is still fighting, and is still being taken care of by the Master Healer, I go and give her a death sentence!

"As I sit here and read this, my heart breaks for you. I have prayed for your family starting the second I read about Kayleigh's story, and have never stopped since. I'm sorry that you have to go through this. No parent should ever have to go through this. But, it's God's plan. And His plan is the best plan there is. And, wheI hope you find peace in knowing that you will be reunited with your sweet girl again in Heaven. And when you see her, she will have a healthy heart, and won't have to suffer through everything her poor little body has been through the last 5 months. You are being uplifted in my prayers so much, and I pray that you will continually feel God's amazing presence with you during this time. I wish that I could hug you, cry with you, be there for you, and tell baby Kayleigh what a precious angel she is to everyone. Please just know that you have touched so many people's lives. It has been an honor praying for your baby girl, and getting to see the pictures of her beautiful little face. Your baby girl has shown what a true fighter is, and has inspired so many. May God's peace be with you.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Kayleigh's future is holding hands with the most amazing being ever. That in itsself is amazing!"

How insanely disgusting is that? I could have told them other, more important, comforting things, and I acted as if their daughter was taking her last breath! I am so disgusted with myself. I hate it that I let my emotion get the best of me, and when I read that "Kayleigh's body is starting to slowly shut down", it was automatic death for her. NO! It is NOT automatic death. God is the one who chooses that, not the doctors, and nobody here on Earth! Why couldn't I have said something to that effect? I wouldn't want someone to act as if my daughter was already gone. I would want someone to tell me that she still has a chance, and to trust in God for Him to heal her, and give her that chance.

I blew it... like majorly blew it, and I feel horrible!

Oh no, I think that what you said this morning was beautiful. They know that Kayleigh is in her finale days, and seem to have accepted the fact. I certainly don't think you bombed anything. And it's much better than what I said - nothing. I couldn't think of anything to say when I read it (just sat there and cried at work). I bombed if anybody did...
Please don't beat yourself up about that post, I know they appreciated the comforting words.

I tried to post earlier, but it didn't take i think.

My intention was not to wrap you up with the doctors and the unbelieving. I have just been around doctors long enough to know their humanist views.

We as children of God though are to look at life through the eyes of faith and not through our natural circumstances.

We are to think act and walk like Jesus and when it came to healing and performing miracles jesus never asked the father if it be your will. He commanded and things happened.

Sometimes we mean well and because of lack of knowledge we advice with the wrong stuff. Just take it as a lesson learned and a step closer to truly knowing your savior.

DON'T CONDEMN YOURSELF, you ment well by your post. I'm happy to hear you feel you have been a little enlightened today. May God continue to show you who He is.

We'll keep praying for Kayleigh here in MN. Thanks for you comments and i like your post here. Cause it show that the Holy Spirit spoke to you.

God bless you.
