~Thankful Thursday ~ Time~
I'm thankful that our Lord gives us TIMES of adversity where we can grow stronger.
Isaiah 43: 2-3
"2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you cross rivers, you will not drown. When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, nor will the flames hurt you. 3 This is because I, the Lord, am your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt to pay for you, and I gave Cush and Seba to make you mine."
"2 My brothers and sisters, when you have many kinds of troubles, you should be full of joy, 3 because you know that these troubles test your faith, and this will give you patience.4 Let your patience show itself perfectly in what you do. Then you will be perfect and complete and will have everything you need."
My younger sister has one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer. She is doing good. She returns to M.D. Anderson June 4, 2008 for testing. Please pray for excellent test results, as well as reduction in tumor size; Pray for Peace of Mind; Pray for Dr. Gilbert, Jan's oncologist that he will have wisdom in providing the best possible treatment plan.
God has blessed Jan and our family so much since November and we give Him all the praise and glory and because of this we feel we are being tested. We stand firm in our faith and we are thankful that we can tell the world how we have been blessed just since November, but we do covet your prayers!
