Praise

Filed under: Uncategorized — by andrewandtiffanyporter @ 10:20 pm

We sang a song in church on Sunday and it was pretty powerful stuff…

Oh no, You never let go,through the calm and through the storm.

Oh no, You never let go, every high and every low.

Still I will praise you,

Still I will praise you, Lord.

We want this to be our anthem as we are going through all of this with Jack.  It is so easy to praise the Lord when life is easy, it’s the storms where it’s sometimes hard to do.  This song reminds us that the Lord never lets go and we are so comforted by that.  Scripture says:

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances,for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thes 5:16 

There are those words again…God’s will 🙂    We are still praying for a complete healing on Jack’s little body, but know that God is in control and it’s His will that we want fullfilled. 

One of the struggles I have had lately is dealing with my own guilt…wondering if something I’ve done has “caused” this.  I came across something in God’s Word that really ministered to my heart.  In John 9 Jesus heals a blind man.  In verse two, it says “Rabbi,who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”  He responds in verse three, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,”said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.” 

Talk about amazing…I am so thankful for the direction, love, and grace the Lord gives us through His Word. 

Update on his progress:  he is doing wonderful!!  His physical therapy has begun and we are very encouraged about everything he is doing since last week.  He is using his right hand, popping his head up while on his tummy(turtle pose!), holding toys with both hands, and talking a lot!  He is off the charts in communication…go figure?!  We also got sponsored by a Shriner and received our acceptance letter to receive treatment at the Shriner’s Hospital in Shreveport…evaulation sometime this summer.  Thank you
Rachel for being so willing to help us out with this…what a blessing!

Thanks everyone for your prayers and love…we are so thankful for you!Love and Hugs,

Tiffany

P.S. Here are some pics from the last couple of weeks 🙂

  1. Glad to hear Jack is doing better! That is wonderful about the Shriners. DON’T feel guilty… look at how both boys are so happy; these pictures are testimony to that… you and Andrew are both such wonderful parents and so good with them. They are very lucky to have you as a mother. Maybe you can look at it that way… that God gave you Jack because He KNEW Jack needed someone really special as his Mother.
