More of You God

Anna Grace is doing well. She is staying very healthy! Praise the Lord. We go to Texas Children's in March and again in April to run baseline tests for her heart, lungs, eyes, and some others. We are praying that we get results that shock the doctors! Every six months to a year we will have them done again to monitor any changes. Thank you for the continuous love, support and prayers.

A sweet friend, Nikki Crain, has offered to have a Scentsy party as a fundraiser for Anna Grace. Nikki has opened an online party that you can access from her website. Just click here and then click on "Prayer for Anna Grace" under open parties. Nikki has so graciously said that all proceeds from the party will go to Anna Grace. I am continuously overwhelmed by the love and support that has been given to our family.

God really spoke to me this morning during worship. He reminded me that no matter life's circumstances, "there is no place I would rather be than here in His love." Click here to go listen to the song, Set a Fire. Take a moment and meditate over the words:

There's No place I would rather be
There's No place I would rather be
There's No place I would rather be
Than here in Your love here in Your love
So Set a fire down in my soul
That I cant contain
that I cant control
Cause I want more of You God
I want more of You

I am so glad that I am always in God's love...wrapped in His arms....being held by my Sovereign Savior. There is truly no better place to be.

In my Bible reading the other day, these words really hit home to me.

I waited patiently for the LORD,
and He turned to me and heard my cry for help.
He brought me up from a desolate pit,
out of the muddy clay,
and set my feet on a rock,making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD. (Psalm 40:1, 3)

I believe with all my heart that the Lord hears my every thought, sees my every tear, feels my every hurt. He has been and continues to refine me as I walk this unknown road with my precious family. I knew when I read these verses that He was putting a new song of praise in my heart. Now today, I know what song it is. It is a song about His love...of being in His love forever and always. I still have days that are hard, moments where I feel like I am back down in the pit. But it is in those moments that He lifts me back up and I am reminded of His unfailing love.

Oh, may my God be glorified in ALL things!

If there is someone out there that needs to talk, please know I am here for you. And, if there is anyone out there that does not know about Jesus and the love He has for you, please go read this. God loves you so much He sent His son to die on a cross for you. WOW! As a mother, I could not even fathom having to do this...God's love is more than we could ever imagine. Don't live your life without knowing it!
