Praying for Jenny
Not much of an update, but I just wanted to continue to pray for Jenny and ask that you all do the same. Rumor has it that she may be able to go home on Tuesday, with pretty much being kept isolated in her room and such so as to avoid germs. That will be awesome if she’s able to come home, even though I think a couple days a week she would have to return to the hospital for continued chemotherapy. I’d just feel a whole lot better for her and her family if she’s able to stay at home. I know it would be a lot easier on them, and I know she would love to be back home.
Since visiting Jenny for the first time, I’ve just had a growing desire to help out and serve in whatever way I can. I would love to be able to help make things easier on Jenny and her parents. I don’t know if that would be by me visiting again, maybe it would be me helping out with something — who knows? I just am trying to make it clear to her family that I’m game to do whatever to help keep things running. It’s got to be really difficult to have one of your five kids in the hospital with leukemia, and I just want to do whatever I can to help alleviate some of that, because there’s enough pressures as it is on a parent.
Though I’ve been a little concerned lately, I’ve just got to surrender this entire situation to Jesus and trust Him. Romans 8:28 reminds me that all things work together for good for those who love God. He knows what the outcome of this whole ordeal is going to be; I don’t. However, I have hope that Jenny will be healed, and even though I can’t see that right now, I’m believing that one day that will be the case, God willing. The same Spirit that restores sight, raises the dead — that same Spirit can move and heal Jenny completely of any trace of the cancer in her bloodstream. We all love that little girl.
