God Is All We Need

Isaiah 58:11 "The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."

My prayer tonight is for Adam's body to have rest, that God would strengthen his frame and restore Adam's health. Adam spent most of today storming. He fought storm after storm today and his body is tired. The positive about today is the doctor decided to do a trial tonight of capping Adam's trach through the night. This means Adam is doing all the work himself. The doctors have decided to not remove the trach or downsize until we are cleared from the neurosurgeons at UNC, which won't be for a few more weeks. For now, I am still rejoicing in Adam's finger movement from yesterday! That was so awesome!!! I am so proud of how hard I see Adam work everyday. He is an amazing man and I love him so much.

Tonight I leave you with a song that I have been playing over and over and over... I love to worship and trust that God is ALL Adam and I need... We will continue to believe that God will fully restore Adam, trust in Him that He has a plan to work all of this for good... and through the journey we will be continuing to surrender to His perfect will.

Rita Springer "All I Need"

All I need to do is worship
All I need to do is say His name out loud
All I need to do is lift my hands, surrender
And bow down
All I need to do is find Him
All I need to do is let His presence fall
All I need to do is worship
Worship the Lord

When there’s no way out
Except through a miracle
When there’s no way up a mountain
Except to climb it
When everything you hope for
Seems gone
And every dream you’ve dreamed
Is so far away, that’s when I say...

All I need to do is worship
All I need to do is say His name out loud
All I need to do is lift my hands, surrender
And bow down
All I need to do is find Him
All I need to do is let His presence fall
All I need to do is worship
Worship the Lord

Ruth 2:12 (New International Version)

12 May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge."

Lifting you all up in prayer, and singing along to Rita Springer's beautiful songs.

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ~Ephesians 3:16-19

I love you, Debbie

Praise you in this storm by Casting Crowns

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:
And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

Chorus

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Chorus

Psalm 71:20-23 "You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again. You will increase my greatness and comfort me again. I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy, when I sing praises to you; my soul also, which you have redeemed."

Thank you for sharing, and for inspiring us with your words of worship and praise for our Lord and Savior. I am praying for the both of you; for continued strength and comfort, for the healing of Adam's body and brain, for Mackenzie to hold on to her childlike faith and for an easy adjustment into your new normal. I also pray you know that God is doing amazing things through each of you. As it says in Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." I am praising God for the hope, love and endurance He has placed in your heart, based on what I've seen (through your blogs) you have enough 'endurance' to last a lifetime of marathons.

Love Always,
Rebecca
