MRI - STABLE

Nathan had his MRI today. My mom, Lisa, came with us and watched Sarah, Matthew and Nathan in the lobby while Bobby and I stayed with Nathan. His tumors are STABLE (cancer is there but not growing right now)!!!! Continuing on with his AZD each day twice a day. Next month he will have ECHO to make sure his heart is handling medicine ok and then another MRI in July. Until then we will keep taking daily chemo as usual. So thankful that God has answered our prayer and kept the tumors from getting any bigger. The tumors also look like a little less enhancement (less active blood vessels)


We would like to ask that everyone please remember a few families in your prayers: Please remember the Parker, Cyrus, Hudson and Fortunato families who have all experienced loss recently. Also pray for healing for: Yan, Levi, Cullen, Kaydon, Ezra, Lance, Karla, Jeff, Nana, Nathan Thomas, Caroline, Layla, Papa Harold and Grandma Lisa.


Our devotion from this morning by Sarah Young from Jesus Today:


Watch in hope for Me. Wait for Me-your Savior; I will hear you. Your hope derives from the rock-solid fact that I am God your Savior. If I were only a human savior, my sacrificial life could not save you from your sins. If I were truly God but unwilling to become a human Redeemer, you would have no Savior. But since I am your Savior-God, you have every reason to watch in hope!


Look carefully for evidence of My working in your life circumstances. Do not grow weary in your waiting; trust that indeed I will hear you. In fact, I always hear your prayers-and also the Spirit's groanings for you which cannot be uttered. Believe that I am with you in the midst of your circumstances and that I am working on your behalf. Breathe in deep draughts of My calming Presence; fill yourself up with My Peace. Finally, find hope in thinking about who I am: I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.


As for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. -Micah 7:7


The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. -Romans 8:26 nkjv


Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. -Isaiah 46:4
