Have you ever said, “Why me Lord”. I have! But I have also come to realize, if God allows a situation to take place in my life, He already knows that I can and I will get through it.
I said all that to say this, I am asking you to stand with me in prayer for a young family I know and love, who has gone through soooo much in the last couple of years. Elise and Casey were blessed to be pregnant with twins and everything seemed to be going well with the pregnancy until Elise went into early labor and was hospitalized for the duration of the pregnancy. Despite being put on total bed rest, she delivered the babies before they were fully developed. The twins were not expected to survive, BUT GOD had other plans. The babies struggled for many months, through multiple complications. Finally, it seemed as if they were going to be fine until the news came that their baby boy, Jaxon had developed cancer in one eye. Well, Praise God! After treatment Jaxon was healed of cancer completely, he did not lose his eye, and his vision was just fine!. The twins are about to celebrate their third birthday!!! And now comes the news that Elise has been diagnosed with breast cancer after all their family has had to endure with their babies!! Because God has done great, marvelous, and miraculous things for them and their family, we are believing Him to show His mercy and His miraculous power once more in Elise and Casey’s lives.
We believe in the power of prayer, so please join us in calling Elise and Casey’s names during your prayer time. Ask God to heal her, to keep her strong in her body as she fights this battle, to bind them closer together in love, patience, and understanding, to keep their marriage strong through this next chapter in their lives, and to keep their children happy and healthy as He allows His power to be revealed to many through Elise, Casey and their families testimony.
If God allows a situation to take place in our lives, it is because He knows that we are able to bear it, and that we will get through it with Him as our strength and power. They are the picture of love, faith, strength and confidence in God through adversity.
