“Please keep Rachel and Paul Zumbach in your prayers as they decide what steps to take in the treatment of their 2 1/2 year old daughter Arianna. Ari was born premature and has struggled from birth. She is a fighter and has beaten odds so far! She is going downhill rapidly and Paul and Rachel are seeking His peace and direction and have asked for help from all of us. To paraphrase Rachel, “we know she will be healed and will dance with Jesus” but even knowing that cannot stop the pain and hurt. Rachel reported in her post that Arianna is bleeding more frequently from her lungs. The doctors can remove the lung, but there is a lot of brain damage from the seizures that she has and the seizures are coming more frequently since her hospitalization in May.”
Rachel is not unknown to me. She was a former student and now, inspiring friend. When I first read this… I wept. And then…
I cried… “Oh my God! My heart bleeds, my eyes well up with tears, my soul cries out… Perhaps today Lord… a MIRACLE?!!!”
When all is impossible for man… there is GOD!
Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
