Dear Lord, I'm Johnny, and I come to You in prayer;
I come to You because You've always cared.
I am a child, and I happen to be handicapped--
And, according to You, my future is mapped.
I am in a wheelchair, and I can't walk very well--
And I am sure my family is going through hell!
*WHY* must they cry each and every day?
And why do I get so tired so fast whenever I play?
What did I do to deserve muscles that grow weak?
Why is my future so clouded and so bleak?
I don't want to die; I want to laugh, dance, and live--
I'm just a little boy, and--I have much love to give!!
I don't like to see my family being so sad;
And if You really want to know--it makes me MAD!!
I want to grow up, become a man, drive a car--
But my growing up years won't get very far.
It doesn't seem fair--I'm just a little 9-year-old boy--
And I certainly deserve a lot of happiness and joy!!
But no..I have this awful neuromuscular disease--
And when I think of it, I often want to cry and grieve!
The only good thing is..I am a Christian and am saved,
And the Road to Home for me has already been paved.
I will soon be in Your Arms, in Your Sweet Care--
And I won't have to worry about Satan's lair!!
Jesus, I am looking forward to that, I really AM!--
For I will be Your Child, Your Precious Little Lamb!!
But before that day comes, I ask one thing of You--
PLEASE find a cure for MD, and.make it SOON!!!!
In Your Most Precious Name, I pray, Amen.

|So many good questions in this one. This write is heartbreaking and real. I guess if we had all the answers in life we wouldn't need faith. No one said life would be fair. But our Lord walks it with us, & in His presence is fullness of joy, regardless. Good write!|
