Sunday Sept promise

""For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 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,"
Ephesians 3:14-18

Today was our "faith Promise" weekend at church. A chance to promise in faith what extra you could give to the missions of the church. I unfortunetly missed majority of the sermon by Pastor Chad due to an issue with J and getting to chat with a friend about ways to help him through this difficult time. But even though I didnt hear the whole thing I did get to have one thing written on my heart. WE MUST HAVE FAITH. Faith that God is going to provide for us, that His promises never fail. That in faith we can do his good works and glorify Him. I ended up at the alter with some of the most amazing friends surrounding me, praying for me, the kids and most of all Jeremy. I walked away from service today, knowing that I MUST have faith that God is going to heal Jeremy, that he could fly "home" to us on Tuesday. That I must just keep putting one foot in front of the other, that even when it looks like there is no ground beneath that next step, God is going to provide solid ground to stand on in His own way. Tonight I am seeing that solid ground again more clearly!

He is off the airway pressure!!!! and only at 40% O2!!!!!! this is a HUGE improvement from 24 hours ago! They are switching his sedation drugs to something a little milder, and are now really planning on him being fully able to fly to DC on Tuesday!!!!! THANK YOU JESUS! His nurse tonight said he is doing tons better than yesterday! they are even going to try turning his oxygen down a bit more tonight. What a good note to go to sleep on!!!! Cant wait to find out how he does while I am sleeping! How great is our God?! :)
