Faithful to the Faithful

It has been a long time since my last post, but this warrants a blog comeback!

Yesterday was one of the best days ever! You can read the history here and here. Adleigh and Liana Joye are now home with mommy Ferris and daddy Wade. It has been a rough 3 months for all of them. Born three months premature and after several surgeries they are now out of the hospital.

I want to thank the Lord for His promises. While driving to work on June 12, 2008, God spoke to me and said "Pray for Ferris and lay hands on her", at the time she was pregnant and they sensed complications with Liana (baby A) being much smaller than Adleigh (baby B). The Lord gave me specific instructions in my prayer and He gave me Psalm 16 for them.

As I continued to pray the Lord said the girls would be fine and He gave me Psalm 18. A few days later the girls were born emergency c-section at 27 weeks.

Wade and Ferris stood firm in their faith and held onto God's promises. They prayed scriptures over their daughters and believed that all would be well with them no matter what it looked like. When the doctor's suggested they take Liana off life support and let nature take its course, they said NO and let God take HIS course.

I thank God for Psalm 18:25 which says "you show faithfulness to the faithful". For those of you who are uncomfortable stepping out to lay hands on the sick, you will miss out on an opportunity to see God move like never before. For those who don't think prayer matters,well hundreds of people around the country prayed for these babies, God hears your prayers! To those who don't believe that God works miracles today, look at that picture! To those of you who think you don't have enough faith, stand strong in who God is and what He says He will do and you will not be shaken (Psalm 16:8). God does show His faithfulness to the faithful!

THANK YOU LORD!! All Glory goes to our Savior, Jesus Christ! Praise His Holy Name!!
