Breathing

A Special Update!!

Two big praises, which I must share with you all…Breathing

1) Our friend’s mom received TWO LUNGS.  She was a hard transplant match, and these were as close of an exact match, as you could get.  She is still in ICU, because she went into the surgery pretty weak, but she is on the road to recovery.  It is absolutely a miracle.  Praise the LORD with us!  Breathing fully with two new lungs is a new lease on life.  It has meant the world to this special family.  And it has increased my own faith in the Lord, as I have prayed specifically for just this.  Oh to grace, how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be!!

2) Today is our very last day of bankruptcy.  It has marked our lives, our walk with Jesus in such a wonderful way. As hard as it has been, I would not trade one single part of it for all that I have grown and learned!  We have been celebrating, as a family all weekend long–with a trip to the zoo, time with friends, dollar movie and a hamburger place we have never before tried–Five Guys (it was good!).  God is SO GOOD.  I wish I had more words, but I just have these–when the Lord allows hard times to come, He may not scoop you up and rescue you out of them, but He will be with you in them.  You never walk alone.  Special thanks to Teresa for sending me a card nearly every week for three whole years.  You have ministered to my heart so much.  Thank you!!  Blessed assurance Jesus is mine, oh what a foretaste of glory divine!

Love to you all!  I am personally looking forward to decorating for spring this week here at A Martha Heart.  A change of seasons…more happy breathing.  Spring-filled breaths.We are breathing…in and out.  Breathing thankful breaths.  Breathing financially.  Breathing and trusting God for many other requests.  At His feet, we lay them all.

Feel free to comment with your own requests.  We will gladly lift them up to the Lord with you.

    Praising God right along with you for both things!!!

    I’m extra delighted to hear that your friend’s mom was DOUBLY blessed — indeed, our Father God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, or as speaker and writer Priscilla Shirer likes to say, He goes BEYOND beyond!!

    Congrats to you and your family for your being brought out of bankruptcy — I can’t even imagine what that’s like (although we’ve been pretty close). Yes, take a deep breath — and enjoy!!

    Blessings,
    Pam

    Praising Him with you. Double blessings in one day. What a Big God we have. Bless you and your ministry and your sweet family.

    Holly,
    I am so excited about your news. I have been praying for you and its wonderful to see how God gets us through. James tells us to allow endurance to have its perfect effect. That’s what changes us to be who He desires. I am praising God with you.
