Wow! It has been quite a week. Sunday was a difficult day with George fighting alot of pain. He was finally able to get the doctor and get some adjustment to the pain medication. I went outside and had a heart to heart with our FATHER. Not demanding, not fussing, but letting Him know what was on my heart. I love the Lord. He wants relationship and that is part of it. Read in the Bible, Abraham, Moses, Job, David didn't they all have the heart to hearts with the Father. Sometimes it takes that for us to then gain the right perspective on things. I believe that when we go to the Lord in sincerity even if we are upset HE will NOT turn us away. In the midst of the times when you feel like all heck is breaking loose you can encourage yourself in HIM. He always reminds me that He promised to be the fourth MAN in the fire from the beginning of this thing.

Last Wednesday night I feel as though the LORD imparted to me the GIFT OF FAITH. Not just faith to believe but the GIFT of faith which is the supernatural ability to believe in spite of what the circumstances say. I stand on Psalm 27:13-14 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

And last night at church the Lord led me to Psalm 33:18-22 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

Just another thing that God has done. Lately, since an email from our friend Tonya we have been believing God for a SUDDENLY miracle. Just one of those, AND suddenly God did it. Well yesterday Lauren said that last week she found a card lying on the floor at church. Ironically, the card has a lighthouse on it which is what George has here on the blog and the card said The enemy can't do anything about who you are. He just wants to keep you from seeing it! Wait patiently for God's purpose and timing and you will see a Suddenly! Even as I am typing this the Holy Spirit is rising up inside me. Our God is God and He is able.

Also George came home yesterday from meeting with the radiologist. They mapped him out for his radiation treatments. He lifted his shirt to show us his markings and Lauren said, "Look Dad you have three crosses on you. There is one long, large cross right in the center of his abdomen and two smaller crosses on each of his sides. We got all excited and started shouting. George is covered. Some may say Robin you are just looking for God in small, silly details but my response would be, isn't it awesome that our Father wants to communicate to us in the small details of daily, mundane things that happen in our lives. He is always communicating, the key is are we listening. Are we willing to slow down enough to realize, WOW, God you love me enough to line up even the smallest of details to let me know that YOU know where I am and that YOU love me.

Stay the course, keep the faith, don't be swayed by circumstances or reports. We shall believe the report of the Lord.

Robin,

As I was reading this blog, I have to tell you, I felt the sweet presence of the Holy Spirit. I agree, that I beleive the Lord communicates with us in ways that takes child like faith to recieve and respond.....like the 3 crosses on Georges chest! I love when the Lord speaks like that! It's so personal. That's just like God isn't it! I am believing and standing with you and George!

Love Ya' Girl,

You have always been to me a woman of much faith and STRONG in Him...I will never forget the poem you wrote about JONAH and how many times you prayed over my womb! Your faith (when mine seemed to be glim at times) kept me going along with others.......this is NO DIFFERENT!!!
And as far as how the Lord speaks! Hey, He can do anything!!! I look for Him in small places like that...those who don't honesty miss out! Indeed He does speak in mysterious ways! Hang on sister!!!! You will only RISE HiGHER as you REACH HIGHER!!!!

You are an encouragement!

Robin, this is all so right on!! God is really waiting and watching, too, because He wants to see who will hear and respond to Him...remember the Word in Luke 8 that asks "will He find faith on the earth" and He does look for persevering faith from those who love Him and wait for Him. And yes, God does many things that would and should cause our faith to stand and become stronger...even signs! Praise God, He never leaves us without hope as long as we are looking at Him. We are indeed believing with you, George, Lauren and Bryan. For great things He has done and we can expect great things from Him...Keep believing!
Love to all, Betty

I always want God to rescue me before I have to go into the lion's den. But if God has it for us to go into the lion's den the situation is not out of His reach. In fact, it will strengthen our faith all the more to see how much bigger God is than we realized.

You are exactly right in that we trust God no matter how long we wait and no matter how high the circumstances stack up. That's because He is bigger than all circumstances can ever be. What a blessing to see the circumstances stack up higher and higher causing the development of our faith to be greater and greater.

When this situation is a memory, the strong faith and deep trust in God remain.

This is God's fight and victory is assured when He fights. And it is really cool to see how He is communicating with you during this time.

Through what you are facing, we all get to see and know God more. May God increase your faith and strength faster than the circumstances can stack up. He is faithful, and I trust we will see a glorious result. I'm believing with you.
