Look who we just got to Orlando for her upcoming heart operation 🙌🏼 @estherfaithbateo will be admitted at @adventhealth tomorrow morning and prepped for total repair of Tetrology Of Fallot scheduled for Wednesday morning! For those of you who’ve been following Esther’s story over the past year, you’ll understand how much of a miracle it is just for her to have gotten to this point, and to have this opportunity! Although Esther and her family have been through many highs and lows, they’ve kept holding on to faith each step of the way, while God has been writing an amazing story through her life! He’s moving mountains on her behalf! Esther and her mother can never repay each of you for your kindness, prayers, and support for this upcoming operation, but they want you to know they have the deepest gratitude to you forever. We are so close to this precious child having a great chance at a normal life with this operation, and we request your thoughts and prayers for a successful outcome on Wednesday! 📸 #1 today 📸 #2 post stenting Manila, Philippines, 02/12/2020 📸 #3 post ICU, Tacloban, Philippines 11/26/2019 I will keep you posted. – LB #PrayersUp

Did you know when you take two mins to jot down a few things you’re grateful for, it’ll amaze you just how many you’ve got to add up 💭 The world around us may be in turmoil, but our hearts don’t have to be. Jesus taught us to cast our burdens and cares on Him, and He’d carry them for us. I truly believe that, because I know He’s shouldered mine time and again. Right now you may be tired, worn down, feeling the pain of loss, hurt, rejection, doubt, or fear… Maybe even all of the above? If so, don’t stop right here because this next passage is just for YOU— “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you REST. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 📖 . Those are Jesus’s words, (our Savior and Creator) and you can bet He meant them. Take them to heart, because He’s got your back 1000% and whether you’re high on a mountain, or trudging through a valley, He’s right there in the middle of it working things for your good, even though you may not see it. If you’ve made it this far, drop one thing you’re thankful for today! Big, small, it doesn’t matter 🙂 GO👇🏼 🙏🏼
