Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Sunday, March 16, 2008

Our days feel like we are squeezing five days into one! We are constantly on the go and things are going super. We are continuing to soak up all that God has for us. I have sooooo much to write and am keeping track in my journal so that when I get a chance, I can finally spill my guts!

Todd, you did a great job blogging...thank you! As Todd said, we are praying for a miracle. Volunteers, mamas, staff, our lawyer, our waiter, our hotel receptionist...all are aware of our request to God. We are expecting big things to happen tomorrow. We know we will see God moving in our midst. Whether or not it is the miracle we are specifically asking for, we know God's plan will not be thwarted... and what better place than to be in the center of His will! So join with us at this very hour praying that the judge would grant a verbal ruling with a written ruling following a day later. We will be in court on Monday, March 17th at 9am, which is midnight Sunday, March 16th (Montana time). Everyone shows up at 9, waits for the judge to show up, and then cases are heard based on the seniority of the lawyer. So we do not know when our case will actually be called before the pray until you read a blog or hear a shout of praise coming all the way from around the world.

We appreciate your prayers, support, encouragement, and you! Thank you for traveling this journey with us.

Praying and believing God for a miracle...

P.S. Carol L. please call Sharon W. and tell her we are seeing dragonflies everywhere! They keep us smiling!

I will keep praying for a miracle, and will be joyfully in prayer if I don't sleep well tonight. We will continue to pray for a miracle for Katie's health also. We're just aching to get you all back here.

Our love and prayers are with you.

For every comment that I read, there are at least five other people that remind me they are joining us in praying for God to make His name famous around the world, and especially here in Billings where many eyes are watching with anticipation of what He will do next. My love and prayers are with you at this and every moment.

I get goosebumps every time I check onto the blog and read about all the big and "small" ways in which God is answering prayers all along the way. I have been praying for you all along and will continue until you're all here safe. Megan L

From Carol -- I have often wondered how hard it must have been for Jesus to decide who to do miracles for or to minister to. He could not meet the physical need of everyone he came upon without just doing a "sweeping miracle"... give everyone what they wanted. But he met one persons need at a time. I think of you facing the same decisions. Wanting to meet the needs of every person you come across, but this is not possible, nor can you just grant everyone's wishes with a sweep of your hand. It is one person at a time, as God lays them on your heart. Oh how you wish you could help all humanity! Praying daily for you.

I will be thinking and praying for you all morning(and at this moment) and waiting in great anticipation for what the ruling will be. I will praying for a ruling the same day. May the Lord grant you this miracle. I love you guys! Please rest assured in His decision whatever it may be for you today (Monday).

I can't wait to get you home and hold those precious children in my arms. I am also praying for an early return.

Oh Jenny,
It is so amazing to be so connected to your journey thank you for sharring this with us. You must be getting ready right now to go to court for your beautiful children. My heart is overflowing in gratitude and prayer to our faithful Lord on your behalf. I have FAITH in God with you. "Have faith in God," Jesus anwsered. I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen it will be done for him." Mark 11:22-23
As you prayed and said may the judge and all involved see you have been with JESUS!
It will be hard to sleep tonight knowing you are being a witness to many of the greatness of our God to all involved.
You have His favor around you!
I feel Heb.10:36 is for you and Todd because this is what I have seen you do!
"You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will recieve what he has promised.
The fullness of his promise is coming!!!
Love you my sister in Christ,
PS Katie is in our prayers, may God touch her dear little body and do a miracle!

My Jenny,
Here it is about 20 minutes to your court time, and I am sure I am not the only one watching the clock and thinking about you and praying to our God.

Just reading Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you-the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm-
he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
I love you, Dad
