Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 The Message

One More for Today

I just want to dedicate this one to Nate, Tricia and Gwyneth. I'm not going to retell their story, you can click the link. But I am feeling a real need to pray extra hard for them. Tricia and Gwyneth are both doing remarkably well, but I think they are feeling the pressures of their situation. Just a feeling from reading a few recent posts.

Please pray that Nate will get some much needed rest, pray that God would give him comfort and peace and remove the stress of his beloved girls ordeal. Pray that Tricia would remain healthy and God would bring her new lungs, and pray for the family that will be donating those lungs. Pray that Gwyneth would grow stronger everyday. My heart goes out to this family whom I have never met. Their faith is so strong. If it weren't for that faith, and the love and support of their immediate family and their church family, I honestly don't know how they would get through each day. They are living proof that God still does miracles today.

Father God, wrap your arms around this family, they are weary and need your rest. Please give it to them in these tough days. Walk beside them, comfort them, and give them strength. Keep Tricia healthy, bring her new lungs quickly, comfort the family who will be donating these lungs. Make their miracle baby strong and healthy. Thank you Father for the faith this family has, let their story be one that brings many people to faith in you. Thank you for what you are doing in their own lives and in their walk with you. Keep them strong Lord. Amen.

Thank you Jennifer for inviting others to share in the lives of this family. Being the parent of a premmie and the wife of someone battling cancer and a brain tumor this family is a great testament. God is all about hope and grace.

Thanks, Donelle
