Beating Cystic Fibrosis

February 23, 2011 — 5 Comments

My friend Joe Sinnaeve has battled Cystic Fibrosis his entire life.
Joe has been a model of what it means to be a great son.
Yesterday was his biggest fight with the disease and he was victorious.
Not victorious in the worldly sense of the word.
But victorious in the eternal sense.
He lost the physical battle.
But his faith and trust is in the Lord Jesus Christ.
And Jesus won the war.
Joe is in heaven. No more pain. No more fighting.
No more worrying about blood-sugar levels.
No more dealing with the broken nature of this world.

He is finally disease-free…

So our prayers are no longer for Joe and his health.
They are for Jerry and Wende, his parents.
They are for Brit. They are for those of us left to deal with the grief.
But let’s not forget the miracle that Joe lived this long.
And let’s not forget the miracle that he lives again… disease-free.
