I know I have neglected my blog for the past week or so. I apologize. For some reason, life doesn’t slow down for my blog. Today, I am including something from Amy that she has written. I told her to get her own blog, but she insisted that she could improve my ratings if I would just let her post something. After reading what she wrote, I am sure you will understand how blessed I am to have a wife that is willing to write my messages for our services as well. Anyways, I would like to introduce my lovely wife, Amy.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone that has sent us e-mails and cards. They have been very encouraging and appreciated. And more improtantly, thank you to everyone who has kept us in your prayers.
I want you all to know that I am doing very well. There are some days that I ask God for more strength than others, and I am quick to say that He always delivers. Scripture says in Psalm 40:2, “He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps.” I believe I make it through each day because I trust my Lord. There is no doubt in my mind, my God loves me and promises to take care of me. I Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” There are times in all of our lives that are tough and sometimes seem unbearable, but know this, God is still there with us, walking beside us every step of the way. I Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation (trial) has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted (tested) beyond what you are able, but with the temptation (trial) will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” Scripture also says in I Peter 5:10, “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.” What an amazing promise!!!
Now, as for myself and my situation, I’m not scared. I’m not even worried. I know I serve a God that created the very universe that we live in, a God who hung the stars in the sky, and created man from dust. Do I believe that God can heal our little boy? I would be silly not to. So please, do not spend your time feeling sad for me or my family. We know that God is in control, and through our situation, He can do amazing things. I actually see lives being changed daily because of our little boy – the little boy we have yet to meet.I can only imagine God’s purpose for all of this. What an awesome God we serve!!!
Thank you again for all of your prayers. I am strong because God has put me on a rock.
As I feel our son move inside of me, I know he’s saying, or maybe even singing (he would get that from his daddy), “He’s Still Workin’ On Me.”
Please continue to pray for our son, and know that God is faithful and God is good all the time.
