I have a data sheet that I go by all day long, writing down every morsel she is eating, how many carbs, making adjustments to the diet as I go. The diet is a hard road for a little girl: No gluten, no meat, no sugar, no milk, and a full spectrum of vegetarian alternatives. I have been making our morning green smoothies 3 times a day, filling the hopper with half kale and spinach, and raw yogurt. She gladly drinks her cup-fulls. I make a protein bar filled with good healthy oils, nuts, seeds, super greens, and more. She gladly eats them. She never complains. I make porridge for her of beans, lentils, brown rice, and every vegetable imaginable, and she gladly fills her bowl. And I time her water intake throughout the day, more and more cup-fulls of water. And when she voids, I collect, calculate amounts, pH, and brix count (glucose in her urine).
Yesterday, as Molly and Megan were helping me bake a batch of bread, Molly said, “I am helping make the bread I can not eat.” I looked at her and said, “Have you learned yet how unfair life can be. There are millions of kids out there that eat junk food all day, and they have good health. You have always eaten a good, natural diet, and you have this trouble. Did you know, God made you this way, He chose this path for you? Why, I do not know, nor will I question.” I said these things with defeat in my breath.
Then Molly looked up to me with total determination and said
“I know why. God made me this way to show how MIGHTY HE IS!”
Out of the mouth of babes! The faith of this girl astounds me! If only we all had her faith. Her will to believe God for a miracle, without seeing it first.
Please pray for Molly and her miracle! She needs a miracle.
