At the age of 9 years old, John O’Leary was burned on 100% of his body and given less than one percent chance of surviving the first night. There were only 3 little patches on his body that received 2nd degree burns, all the other parts were 3rd degree burns. John O’Leary told his mom that he wanted to live, he did not want to die. She told him he needed to fight for all he’s worth. John and his family are very religious, they prayed with him and for him. He was very used to calling on his faith to get him through this challenge. His mother also asked all that came to visit, to pray for John. John spent 4 months in the hospital and went through “multiple surgeries, skin grafts and years of therapy”. Despite losing all 10 fingers to amputation, John pushed on with a strong will to live.
Today’s world can seem so dark. We are too often reminded of the pain and disappointment in our everyday lives. Health, financial and relational challenges impact all who live in this imperfect, fallen world. Our faith doesn’t offer the guarantee of avoiding adversity, but instead the promise of a loving God who suffers with us in our pain, celebrates with us in our joy, and invites us into an eternal relationship with Him.
