Wanted to check in and let you know that your prayers are being answered. Our God is faithfully providing physical relief and emotional peace as each day passes. Jen has had a really good week this week in comparison to any since the surgery. She is still dealing with some pain associated with the stretching of her incision as our babies grow, but it is much more tolerable than it has been. She has been able to get out of the house several times this week to have dinner with friends, finish our baby registry, and enjoy the fall a little bit.
We are very hopeful that this will continue. Although the doctors say the potential for Jen to start contractions in the coming weeks is very high, we are confident that our God in completely capable of holding those off for many weeks to come. We know He is able, but we just don’t know if He is willing yet. We certainly don’t want contractions to start because we never ask Him for this provision, so would you please join us in petitioning our Lord for this? We will trust His judgment in this no matter what He deems appropriate.
Thank you all for your prayers. It is awesome that in spite of the fact that we are completely unworthy of the gift of salvation that He has given us through Christ, He gave it anyway. If God provided nothing else for us on this earth, Christ would be enough. But, His grace extends well beyond salvation alone to our every temporal need. He has walked right beside us through this entire ordeal so far, and we know He will continue to do so. Your prayers are a provision and a gift from God for us. We thank God for all of your prayers daily – He is using you to provide for us!
