“some people hear my words
and think i’m wise beyond my years,
and others wonder if i am sincere
some would say i’m foolish
to put my faith in You,
and some would say i’m wise because i do
as i consider all of this,
all that really matters is

i know, i know who You are,
by the way You make the wind blow,
and the way You stir my heart,
and i have only made it through so far,
’cause i know, i know who You are

some say You are the only truth,
and some say You’re a fraud,
some think we invented You
some call you God
some say You were a noble man,
very kind and good,
some think You were a prophet just misunderstood
but i’m content to always be,
a witness to your mystery

and even though i’ve never seen Your face,
i have heard You calling out my name

i know, i know who You are,
by the way You make the wind blow,
and the way You stir my heart,
and i have only made it through so far,
’cause i know, i know who You are.”

~ “i know Who You are”.. by ginny owens

Keep praying and believing, please. I know Who He is, and I know what He does.

The doctor from Cincinnati yesterday agreed about what the tumor was — that it was rare and fast-growing, and that treatment will be agressive. The radiation should be starting by the end of next week, and this doctor also ordered more tests to make sure — again — that it’s nowhere else.

Pray for the fluid that showed up next to Jon’s skull on the MRI, that it will be absorbed and that there won’t be any infections.

The verse of right now is Philippians 1:6, which talks about being confident “that He Who began a good work in [Jon] will carry it on to completion..”

I think the words of the song above are really appropriate to all of this, because He is evidenced in it all. He is working, doing His God things. He makes the wind blow, He stirs our hearts, He so wants us to just believe.

All the different descriptions of Him given here — I’ve had conversations with people who entertain each of those viewpoints, and each time I remember them, I am reminded over and over again of how we are to be an example. We’re supposed to reflect Him to these people, and we are supposed to share with them Who He is.

And.. as they watch this entire situation, all will see how great is our God.

I know Who He is and that He is working. And I’m praying and believing always. For the radiation, for it to be nowhere else, for the fluid to absorb, for no infection, for Jon’s continued healing and recovery, and for this entire sweet family.

Keep praising Him in the storm, praying, and believing along with us, please. The story so far..
