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..
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....
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.
