Thursdays Thoughts

Interestingly last night I went to Focus (which is our LCC Wednesday Night Worship Service). I (along with three other staff/faculty) was asked to pray for students who wanted prayer. So for almost two hours I laid hands and prayed for those who wanted prayer. Students who were weak and feel separated from God or just students who wanted prayer. What an honor. I am strong believer in praying scripture for people..since it is truth and the ultimate will of God. So for two hours I basically tried to pray every scripture or biblical truth I knew that was applicable to them. What a wonderful blessing for me to remember what and say with faith what I know to be true.
It seems appropriate that all of this is going on as we prepare and enter into a time of Lent. Our family attended a Ash Wednesday service. We needed it. We need to remember all Christ did for us. We agree we need God's mercy.....What a wonderful season we are in as we anticipate Easter.
Regan had a long night and a rough morning. Please continue to lift her up. Even though today is heavy with seizures we know God is hearing us and responding. Yesterday and Tuesday were the lightest days she has had in a while. We are so blessed to worship the God that inclines His ear to listen. We rest in the words of Christ when we said....
"Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven."
"Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted"
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied."
"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God."
oh is our family blessed beyond measure......Thank you Jesus!

Please know that we are out here absorbing every word of your dynamic vision and witness. We appreciate your dedication to keeping this blog updated for us and continue to be encouraged by the strength God provides and renews each morning. Numerous friends of mine read your thoughts frequently and comment to me, so I wanted to pass that on to you. The computer can still be a little scary and getting to your blog is about all they can handle. At times I'm sure it seems like family and many friends are a long ways from Lincoln. However, we know your support there is strong and active and the family of God holds you tight no matter where they live. We Love you.
