Sunday Scripture: That Special Child January 25, 2015

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

It seems like more and more people I know have kids who are either special needs or just needing some special medical or educational care.  I work with children, all of who have different needs, and I have a talented and beautiful daughter who has special needs uniquely her own.  It’s tough seeing your child struggle but God is there every step of the way.  God also thinks YOU are very special as He gave that child to you and only you.   I don’t know about you, but I consider that a huge honor.  He trusts you and supports you, as this poem someone gave me years ago attests.  It made me feel better way back then, and it still does to this day.  Here’s hoping it helps whoever else needs it.


Heaven’s Very Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth

It’s time again for another birth

Said the angels to the Lord above

This child will need much, much love

His progress may seem very slow

Accomplishments he may not show

And she’ll require extra care

From the folks she meets way down there

He may not run or laugh or play

His thoughts may seem quite far away

In many ways she won’t adapt

She might be known as handicapped

So let’s be careful where he’s sent

We want his life to be content

Lord find the parents who will do

A very special job for You

They may not realize right away

The special role they’re asked to play

But with this child sent from above

Comes stronger faith and richer love

And soon they’ll know the privilege given

In caring for this gift from heaven

Their precious charge, so meek and mild

Is heaven’s very special child.
