God Answers!

Praise God!

It has GOT TO BE so hard not to read something that starts off like that. Right? I know I would have a hard time. I am writing tonight because I believe. NO... I KNOW God has been doing some amazing things in my life, in Steele's life, and in our family's life . Who am I kidding? He has been doing amazing things in my life since I can remember, even before, and I know for well beyond the years I will ever see.

I think I should start off with today, and go backwards, because I don't think it would come across the right way, ANY other way.

Today I received a call at 9am that started something like this.

Dallas area code is calling..
Me: Hello?
Nurse: Can I speak to Beau Becton?
Me: This is he.
Nurse: I am calling in regards to the email you sent to us last night concerning Steele Becton. I don't know how lucky you have always been, but right now you are. I read your email, looked up, and a cancelation appeared. We DO NOT... Let me say that again.. WE DO NOT get cancelations, but.... Can you be here Monday December 16, at 2 pm.?!?!?!
Me: (IN MY HEAD IM THINKING.. DO WHAT>> ARE YOU SERIOUS? But Somehow I muster.) YES!! but I don't know that luck had anything to do with it. Now let me call my wife to make sure she can come! Can I call you back to confirm we can be there?
Nurse: Yes, I will personally sit by the phone and wait until you call back.
Me: Thank you! and God Bless you!

After I called Lindsay to make sure she could make the appointment, I called  the nurse back to confirm!

Me: Nurse? We can make it! I thank you so much!
Nurse: No problem! I just saw your email and had no clue and still don't if we have all the information we need from your pediatrician but when I saw the email. I knew we have to make this happen.

So it makes the HAIRS on the back of my neck stand up, goose bumps, tears well up, and I am overcome with JOY, THANKFULNESS, and knowing God is honoring our FAITH when I even retype that. God was at work, He is at work, and He will be at work!

WE HAVE AN APPOINTMENT!!!!

BY THE WAY.... LUCK.... had nothing to do with it. God is answering our prayer!

November 23, 2013 I wrote to a doctor or should I say specialist in Dallas about Steele and his diagnosis. She wrote me back THAT DAY. She basically told us what we needed to get an appointment. Our Pediatrician was given all the information to get to this clinic in Dallas. She told us that it would probably be two to three weeks before we hear back from them. I contemplated all weekend whether or not to email the clinic back. I wasn't sure if I should push the process or just let it play out. So, I prayed. I asked God to tell me what to do. He did, but not right away. I felt like if I wrote something and Lindsay agreed, I should send it. Lindsay has been my rock when and where I have failed. When I am weak she is strong. God has done nothing but confirm that I was supposed to marry this woman over the past couple of weeks. She is such an amazing person, an AMAZING mom, and without a doubt a woman that wants to do Gods will. Ok back to where I was. I wrote the email, showed Lindsay Sunday night which was last night, the 9th of December. SHE THOUGHT I SHOULD SEND THE EMAIL!!! So, I did, at 8:56pm.

GOD is AMAZING. We went from hearing back from them in two to three weeks then no telling how long of a waiting list to be seen as a new patient to can you come Monday at 2pm because of a cancelation, and THAT NEVER HAPPENS? Luck....

NOPE!

GOD!

We thank you again for all the Prayers! I don't know who or how many are getting through to God on his personal line, but keep calling... I'm kidding.. Keep praying please! God is doing miraculous works!

"Keep Praying, Keep Fighting, and Keep your Faith because GOD WILL ANSWER!"
He is answering!

1 John 5:14-15

14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.

With God, All things are Possible

Hi again!

In my earlier post, I explained the feelings we had in those first couple of days. In this post, I give you the picture of our last week.

     The people that have entered our lives have been overwhelming. I better clean that up. The Army of warriors that are praying and fighting with us every step of the way have been so supportive, so loving, and it is absolutely compelling to know that there is so much GOOD left in this world. Most of us probably look at this world like I did two weeks ago. I thought this world was going to hell in a hand basket. Everyone had hate in their heart. That guy that flips you off because you unknowingly cut him off. The people that were just doing their job, but we thought we needed to tell them how horrible they were at it. The guy that looks at the guy on the side of the road asking for food or money thinking, I bet he isn't even trying to find a job. NOT EVEN KNOWING what those people have gone through that day, that month, that year, or even their whole life. The things we take for granted are countless. A good friend of mine gave a speech in the locker room my sophomore year. He basically told us all in that locker room to stand up! Stand up to our problems, don't run from them, and don't ever give up. Life has a way of putting up road blocks. When they aren't road blocks, life presents hills and valleys; sometimes mountains and ravines. The thing that keeps me looking up is Gods promise to me number one. HE will not give me more than I can bear. The other are the countless people and groups that have been constantly praying, commenting, calling, texting, and messaging. Those people have helped us tremendously. The therapeutic process has been easier with that help. Thank You! I cannot express enough gratitude. Friends, family, acquaintances, and people that do not even know us personally are spreading the awareness of this genetic disorder, and not only the awareness, but GOD! Over 12000 views in a little over a week for this blog. God is working. He is alive. He is showing me a life that I never knew. I feel like a blind man that God has given me another chance to see His people. I would have never been able to tell you when Steele took his first step. I mean... I may have been able to tell you he was 16 months old, but NOW... I WILL know the date, the time, and the very second HE TAKES HIS FIRST STEP! God has also let me have peace and understanding. This is hard to say or even type, but, God has a purpose for Steele, and whether he walks or rolls through life. GOD will heal him. Whether he is healed tonight, tomorrow, in 10 years or in 30. When he walks through the gates of Heaven Steele WILL walk. HE WILL run. HE WILL jump. God has Promised me that.

We go back to Shriners on January 17th. We are going to meet with the Geneticist. He is supposedly one of the best, and we thank God for that. We thank God for the blessings he has done in our past, the blessing he did for us today, and the many blessings he has in store for us in the future. One thing I know has been a blessing. Steele Christopher Becton.

We have been going to PT once a week. Watching Steele in those sessions has been inspiring. It confirmed a few things also: HE is a FIGHTER. HE is determined. HE is so so so smart. AND HE is ready to beat the odds.

Thank you again to everyone. We love and appreciate all of you. Keep Praying, Keep Fighting, and Keep your Faith because GOD WILL ANSWER.

Matthew 19:26

But Jesus looked at them and said,  “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
