"Creation shows the power of God there's glory all around. And those who see must stand in awe for miracles abound. I believe in miracles, I've seen a soul set free. Miraculous the change in one redeemed through Calvary! I've seen the lilly push its way up through the stubborn sod; I believe in miracles for I believe in God!" God poured the words to this old song into memory just now as i read your entry! Praising our great and mighty God for His divine healing in your life! Walk in peace sweet Ruth!
Rejoicing with You and with the psalmist we share our response, "O satisfy us in the morning with Thy lovingkindness, that we may sing for JOY and be glad all our days." (Ps. 90:14). We join with you in thanksgiving and praise! And we declare His righteousness also given in His Word, "I shall not die, but live, and tell of the works of the LORD." (Ps. 118:17). Forever grateful, David & Linda James
Dave and I are part of the Sunday School class Dale Berry has been teaching this past quarter in Cambridge MN. He has talked to us all about the incredible challenges you and your family have been facing these past few years. The crucible you have been living in and your willingness to speak clearly about the refining of your faith is so painful and so real. Thank you. We add our prayers to those of your family and friends, and we ask especially for the presence of God and His angels in your room, in the life of your family, in the medical staff, and the great cloud of witnesses surrounding you. We thank God for His healing and comfort as you wait.
Listening to Oceans by Hillsong yesterday and still with this prayer on my heart for you:
"You call me out upon the waters, the great unknown, where feet may fail. And I find you in mystery, in oceans deep, my faith will stand. And I will call upon your name, in oceans deep, and keep my eyes above the waves, when oceans rise, my soul will rest in your embrace. For I am yours, and you are mine. Your grace abounds in deepest waters, your sovereign hand will be my guide. Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me, you never fail, and you won't start now...spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior."
The legacy of absolute faith that you and Ruth have shown your sweet children is a FOREVER thing. May God hold you all in His arms of comfort every minute of everyday. With God ANYTHING is possible--we are praying and watching with you. Sending love and hope your way.
Dear Ruth, Doug, Maddie and James, Our hearts are heavy with sadness to hear about the difficult news you just shared. We will be praying fervently that God's miraculous healing hands will work on Ruth! He has been so faithful to you. We are sorry but more hopeful! With love, Trotiers
This may sound strange, but when I read this I thought of you--the definition of blessed.
"Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn. Indeed, our shield belongs to the Lord, our king to the Holy One of Israel." (Psalm 89:14-18 NIV)
