Thank You

Thank You, Lord, for...

  • Keeping me safe, healthy and thriving these past 28 years.
  • Saving me.
  • Blessing me with a loving and supportive husband, who would do anything for me.
  • Working in ways I don't understand, so I can learn to trust You more.
  • Loved ones who are praying for us.
  • A beautiful and healthy daughter.
  • A roof over my head.
  • Friends with whom I can share my burdens.
  • Your Word, and the truth within that has changed my life & my perspective.
  • This experience is drawing us toward Yourself.
  • Hope.

Tomorrow we have an appointment. We're going to have another ultrasound, and we're praying that we would be able to see our baby. So far, no miscarriage, so there is hope. Please pray with us...and thank God with us for His goodness, faithfulness and mercy. We truly don't deserve such love, but are blessed beyonds words with it...in abundance.

Also, pray for us tonight as we have a meeting at a church about 1 hour away. Obviously, after a week of waiting and praying, I feel a bit exhausted physically. Jim has been studying and preparing his presentation. This experience has also been heavy on his heart and mind, which might make it difficult to focus. We'd like to share our burden for Berlin with this church and also share our hearts...what God has been teaching us about faith in Him. Because, really...it will be an element of our life and ministry for the remainder of our days on earth. We're also singing a song about God's faithfulness. Chances are, I won't make it through without a little break down, but I'm hoping I can sing it without blubbering too much...the message is so vital, I'd hate to be a distraction.

Thank you again for praying...God is good!

Sarah, I'll be praying with you guys and coming in to agreement about all of your prayer requests.

Romans 8:18-30 - 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[b] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Sorry for the longest comment ever. I thought this was a really appropriate scripture for your circumstances.
