February 16th - Part 2

No news is good news! The bleeding has increased somewhat, but so far there are no other signs of labor or infection. They have inserted a saline loc in my arm just in case they need to deliver ASAP, but so far so good. Needless to say, it has been a roller coaster of emotions today.

“Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead - since he was about 100 years old - and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised.” Romans 4:19-21

This verse, as well as the footnote explaining them, seems appropriate for today. The footnote: "Abraham had some anxious moments but God did not count these against him. Faith does not refuse to face reality but looks beyond all difficulty to God and His promises. " I like these verses because I have had MANY anxious moments today - but in every one either through His word or the encouragement of Joe, family and friends, God’s promises have been true.

We thank you all for your prayers.

Much Love,

Jennifer, Joe and Madison

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for the updates. You were the first person I thought of this morning. Thank God for His blessings, you are still pregnant and no signs of infection. I will be praying that this bleeding will stop and labor will not begin. It's wonderful to see how much you have grown in your faith in the Lord thru this difficult trial. I came up with some scriptures this morning that I hope will help today as you continue to wait, pray, and trust in the Lord.
1Peter 4:12-13
1Peter 1:7
Romans 5:3-4
Romans 8:17-18
Hebrews 5:8-9
Hebrews 10:35-36
2Corinthians 4:17
James 1:3-4
Hebrews 10:36

Remember He is in control and we can rejoice in the love, care, wisdom, power, and faithfulness of our heavenly Father.

In Christ's love,
