God is good!

Psalm 121

 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
   where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
   the Maker of heaven and earth.
 3 He will not let your foot slip—
   he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.
 5 The LORD watches over you—
   the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
   nor the moon by night.
 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
   he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
   both now and forevermore.

Hi friends!  Above is my prayer for Nathan!  Praise God  - that He is in charge of caring for us.  He never sleeps - He watches over Nathan - to protect him from all harm - He will watch over his life -- and watch over his coming and going both now and forevermore!!!

Nathan had a great day!  He slept most of the day, and Mark said he was quite lucid for most of the day.  We still have the immediate future to think about...  but God is watching over all of that, and we trust Him!
I asked the Lord this morning for wisdom and discernment.  Already, we are pleased with what the new doctors are saying.  Mark was suspicious that perhaps narcotics that were given to Nate for pain, were the cause of the agitation.  The nurse at the new hospital explained; "Oh we NEVER give narcotics to people with brain injury!"

I am praising God for those who have shared personal stories about family members who have suffered brain injuries.  I may be contacting you -- for words of wisdom... and comfort!

Prayer requests :

Since Nate had a horrific experience at MarionJoy, he doesn't want to go back there.  Please pray that he would be open to going back - if that is where the Lord would have him go.  Pray that he would be more and more able to reason (I am sure that comes with time -- but we need a miracle!!) - he can't stay in the hospital forever.

Pray that Nathan would trust the Lord -- and desire a closer walk with Him.  Today, before he ate his dinner, Nathan took his Dad's hand - and prayed a very precious prayer -- thanking God for everything!

Pray that Nathan would be open to some changes he will need to face with his new life, and healing.

Our God is SO big!  We need to ask in Jesus name -- and allow Him to work in us and through us.  What a privilege it is, to trust Him with ALL of it!

Much love to all of you!



  1. Our God IS so big!

    The praying continues, especially that Nate would trust God in this after Mark's and your example.

    Praise His glorious name for a positive day!

  2. God is God Almighty; He knows the end from the beginning, and He is never in the dark. He is sovereign, and He is good. I'm praying often for Nate and you all. -Bev L.
