What I can see in your example is:
even in a state of near death, we still, by the power of God can bring life to another
even in a state of near death (illness, sin) we still, by the power of God (the power of love) can bring life to another (joy to your grand daughter)
The Spirit of God knows the depths of the Father's mind, teaching us His own love for us through this simple example.
Your are in my prayers for deliverance from your illness.
