Dave and Marissa,

Praising God with you today!!  Also wanted to share a quick story with you both.  On this morning a year ago, Grandma Farris was being seen in the Bronson ER when Dave was brought in.  She said she didn't know who the young man was who had arrived after her, but had the distinct feeling that she was to pray for him.  Grandma Farris found out later that day that her grandson Kyle is a close friend with Dave.  Just wanted you to know that the Lord had a prayer warrior WAITING in the ER that day and she had been praying for Dave, Marissa and their families each day since then :)

Have been enjoying the devotional book by Sarah Young...Jesus Calling.  Here is what she wrote for today, February 19th:

You are feeling weighed down by a plethora of problems, both big and small. They seem to require more and more of your attention, but you must not give in to those demands.  When the difficulties in your life feel as if they're closing in on you, break free by spending quality time with Me.  You need to remember who I AM in all My Power and Glory.  Then, humbly bring Me your prayers and petitions.  Your problems will pale when you view them in the Light of My Presence.  You can learn to be joyful in Me, your Savior, even in the midst of adverse circumstances.  Rely on Me, your Strength; I make your feet like the feet of a deer, enabling you to go on the heights.

God said to Moses, "I Am Who I Am.  This is what you are to say to the Israelites: " I Am has sent me to you."  Exodus 3:14

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.  The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.  Habakkuk 3:17-19
