Here's what you need to know about how Jeremy and his family are handling this.
GOD is good! Every event and challenge in life is an opportunity for God to be glorified. We understand that as Christians our purpose here on earth is to glorify God, so if God is glorified we are satisfied.  We know that God is in control and that he has a plan in allowing this to happen to Jeremy.  Job 14.5 assures us that God knows the number of our days and we can do nothing to change what God has decreed will happen.  Seeing then that Jeremy is still with us we are confident that God has a plan for him.  Jeremy, as well as his family, are looking forward to seeing answered prayer and God's grace demonstrated in all of our lives.  

In 1994 Jeremy recognized the truth in Titus 3:5 that there was nothing he could ever do that would be good enough to merit God's favor and eternal salvation.  Even as a young boy he understood his need for a Savior and repented of his sins placing his faith and hope for salvation in what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross.  That faith in Christ is what is sustaining him and his family today.

The Bible tells us in Romans chapter 3 and chapter 6 that  'all have sinned' and 'the wages of sin is death', eternal separation from God in Hell.  It also tells us that 'the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ'.  

Jesus Christ's death on the cross was the sacrifice necessary to satisfy the righteous wrath of a Holy God against sin.  The book of Romans tells us that if we do not know Jesus as our personal Savior, the way Jeremy and his family do, that you are the enemy of God.  As his enemies, though he loves us, we are subject to his wrath and judgment, HELL.

You too have a decision to make.  Life is short and this tragedy is a reminder that the life we have can change in an instant.  Will you be ready to meet God when you die?

Romans 10:9-13  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  12... for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  

Our desire is that through Jeremy's testimony of faith and dependence on God others might come to know Christ as their personal Savior, and through that God would be glorified.

Latest Journal Update

Thankyou for you prayers !!!

A sweet friend of mine urged me to give an update, I'm so thankful for friends. The winter has been challenging for Jeremy. Even though we keep the heat set above 80 degrees, Jeremy fights to keep warm and this wears him out. We run the fireplace and extra heaters but this is what happens when you have a spinal cord injury. He can't have an electric blanket on all the time because he will not know when it gets to warm. An example, when we first started using the electric blanket while I was doing his evening routine the next morning we would notice a red rash all over his legs, finally it dawned on me he had a heat rash from the electric blanket. You think, well Marcia couldn't you feel that it was hot !! apparently not!!!! So now I really watch, and keep the temperature low. Jeremy also has very sensitive skin. He is back to playing his X-Box which is good exercise for his lungs and he is on his computer alot. He called about the implant, to make him cough, last week and they said hopeful in the next few months they will start scheduling for this. He is on the top of their list so it would be wonderful if by summer he would be free of the thing he has in his neck, ( it's called a stoma stint). We rarely suction from his neck, but we need to be able to until he can cough. The insurance company denied a new wheelchair so Jeremy must petition for a new wheelchair, so he is trying to get all the information correct before he starts the process. We have hired 3 nurses to replace the one that moved away, Jeremy wakes up for his turns to make sure they are learning correctly so that accounts for some of his tiredness but he is pleased, they are learning well. We still need to hire a nurse for every other Friday and Saturday but Jeremy needs a brake from training. I am planning to go to Colorado to take care of Katelynn and Gracie, ( I should say play with!!), April 30 to May 5. Pray that I can get all the nursing schedule worked out and for Jeremy, he doesn't like me to go away. We realize more and more that we need to be closer to one of our daughters, it won't happen quickly because Terry will need a full time job. I am not getting any younger but through prayers the Lord has given me much strength to carry one. Jeremy is a very stable quad, his shoulders continue to become stronger. We haven't heard much from the robotic arm people but they know Jeremy doesn't like to go out in the cold so summer will be better for that process. As always I am so thankful for all of our prayer warriors !!!! Marcia

We have followed Jeremy's story since his accident years ago while a student at Grace College. We continue to lift him and you and his dad and sisters up before the Lord. How faithful He truly is when we feel we cannot go another step. Our daughter attended Grace and she needs two lungs due to her battle with cystic fibrosis. We must, as parents, to our dear children simply TRUST HIM.
