Raw Faith

The following is a post my wife, Amy Lou, sent out to her Bible study class. I ask her permission to share it with you because it sums up the start of our day.

(Amy Lou):
If you have ever doubted God’s perfect timing, His sovereignty in the details of our lives, may your world be rocked by this study!! My family is on a journey of faith and we have invited as many of you along that wants to join AND THEN GOD opens His teachings on this topic through this very study, “Raw Faith” (chosen for us long before this journey together began) to guide and grow us. Each of us is on our own personal journey of faith and it is with “fellow faith-diggers” that I want to be!

One of the things that struck me today is that when people of faith suffer, God is giving a gift to the world. He is spreading His message of love and grace. I sit in awe daily of how a little two year old suffering in a hospital bed, is drawing others to Christ. We see her little two year old friends praying for her, quoting scripture over her, and encouraging her with posters and drawings and videos. We receive messages from friends and strangers alike sharing how their faith in miracles has been renewed. We are surrounded by opportunities to minister to other hurting families in the hospital and at the Ronald McDonald House and show the love of Christ. We have the watchful eyes of her caregivers, watching more than just Brynn’s healing, but our reaction to this struggle and acknowledgement of The Great Physician. Our faith is strengthened in that His promises hold true! He never fails us! God is at work in ways unseen as well and to Him we give all the glory! May He be richly honored and glorified in all of our trials and suffering! Praise you, Jesus!!!

“May we triumph with hearts that renounce Satan’s power and fight with a faith that goes beyond words, beyond comprehension.”

I love and cherish each of you, my sisters in this journey! Praying Gods transforming power over each of us!!!

Yes, the heart of a mother is a precious gift and I am so thankful to be called her husband and that she allowed me to share this.

Please pray specifically today that Brynn will start eating, her right hand and arm, and an opening at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta for rehab.

Keep increasing the volume!
