Robin's request....

For those of you who don't usually read or leave comments I am encouraging you to please read the comment from Clint on August 8. He is a friend of George and mine who was given no hope at MD Anderson's 5 years ago. Truly a miracle. Clint thank you for sharing the depths and reality of your faith with all of us. I literally cried when I read your comment because God was using you to speak directly to me. Last Wednesday the Lord gave me a strong word about Him being the fourth man in the fire and not to be moved by Drs. reports or prognosises. We have been told many times by trusted and faithful men and women of God as well as by God himself that this is not a sickness unto death and we THE WAITES FAMILY choose to believe this. God has repeatedly shown us that he is in our midst and with us every step of the way. In the story of the 3 Hebrew men The Lord didn't provide for them not to be thrown in the fire but better yet HE was in the fire with them. When they came out there was no evidence that they had even been through the experience. WOW!!!!!! Our God does all things well. The last verse of the chapter in Daniel about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego says that they were given a promotion to positions in Babylon. The Lord placed on my heart in the beginning of all of this that there is a destiny in all of this and that George is going to be used in some capacity beyond anything that we had planned. We simply make ourselves available to the Lord and ask Him to use us. Again Clint your words of encouragement are right on.

"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love."
1 John 4:1-8

"Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him."
1 John 5:14-15

Go ahead Mountain man! That is good medicine!!!!! and Truth in it's purest form!

Clint, your comment was awesome! Your words confirm so much of what I have been reading about lately and they have obviously "encouraged" George and Robin!!! Praise the Lord that His word stood faithful and not the doctors.

George and Robin....be "still" the Power of the Holy Spirit IS in the midst, do not be weary in what you can not see!!!! I know you two are standing strong.
You two and your family are such a blessing to The Howell's!
Keep praying for Ida Lee and Wilson, they are in the "heat" of the battle!

Praying sooooo, sooooo, much!!!!
