Like many of you, I have been touched in recent days by a little 2 year old girl named Layla Grace, in a fight for her life against neuroblastoma lymphoma cancer. Doctors have done all that they can and have now sent her home on hospice care to simply keep her comfortable in her final days. We, of course, continue to pray that God will choose to intervene and do for her what medicine cannot do. God has, and can, heal — and we will pray boldly for that as long as Layla has a breath in her body.
Lots of people have been touched by this precious girl, and there are understandably a lot of emotions, questions, and spiritual struggles from those who are following her story. In the coming days, I’m going to share some spiritual thoughts and truths that I hope will be a comfort and encouragement to those who are following Layla. I pray that you find them meaningful — and ask that you join me in praying for this precious girl and her family.
