The thick of it

She's in the thick of it now.  The first incision happen about 10am.  If all goes as expected the "opening up" part of the surgery will take 3-4 hours, tumor removal another 2-4 hours and then they close her back up with a little "padding" from her stomach and artificial skull substance.

Waiting.  Trusting.  Leaning.

These sound like passive words but they aren't.  We have a loving Father who is not afraid for us to wrestle honestly with Him in our struggles.  We don't just cope.  We pursue Him - all the while He is pursuing us.

This sermon on Sunday was meat for Kerry's soul: Waiting on the Lord.  Our Elders anointed her with oil and prayed for her this Sunday.  She has been at peace sense.

Continue to pray for the Lord's hand to be on her and the doctors.

Psalm 40: 1-5:

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the LORD.
Blessed is the man who makes
the LORD his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!
You have multiplied, O LORD my God,
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them,
yet they are more than can be told.

I was so encouraged to see all of the prayer slots filled up! Know that I am praying for Kerry and for your family today. I will pray during my "lunch break". I have printed off the specific requests. This verse was in Jesus Calling this morning. May it encourage you now as you are waiting for your precious wife. :)

For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
Isaiah 41:13

Our God has hold of Kerry and you right now! Looking forward to updates!
