“to the one whose dreams are falling all apart
and all you’re left with is a tired and broken heart
i can tell by your eyes you think you’re on your own
but you’re not alone

have you heard of the One who can calm the raging sea
give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet
with a love so strong and never let you go
no you’re not alone

you will be safe in His arms, you will be safe in His arms
‘cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
this is the promise He made, He will be with you always
when everything is falling apart you will be safe in His arms

did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
is the very same voice that calls you now to rise
so hear Him now He’s calling you home
you will never be alone

these are the hands that built the mountains
the hands that calm the sea
these are the arms that hold the heavens
they are holding you and me
these are the hands that healed the leper
pulled the lame up to their feet
these are the arms that were nailed to a cross
to break our chains and set us free

safe in His arms, safe in His arms
safe in His arms
when everything is falling apart
you will be safe in His arms…”

— “safe”.. by phil wickham

I have seen the truth of these words so much over this past year.. they have had such an impact on my life, and they are very appropriate to these circumstances. Not to mention the fact that this song has been dancing around in my head as a result of Phil Wickham-ing in my car for the past couple of days…

Last year dreams seemed to be falling apart.. everything seemed to be. Yet God showed His mightiness to save. And He has proven that throughout everything, we are safe in His arms.

Jon had his MRI and saw the doctors today, and these words fit so very well. 🙂

Thank you all SO much for your continued faith and prayers for this sweet family. Amy says, “The doctors continue to call Jon’s brain ‘stable’ and are very happy with his progress. Praise the Lord! They continue to watch 2 separate areas of residual tumor (we only knew of one and were surprised when they started talking about 2). One of the areas remained unchanged with no new growth and the other had shrunk since his last scan in Oct.  The doctors want to see him in 3 months (Wed. June 30) for another MRI, body/bone and PET scan . We continue to pray for complete healing and  praise God for continued faithfulness to our family. Ephesians 3:20: ‘Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us. To him be the glory in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever.’ Thanks for your prayers!”

I just wanted to share this exciting news with you and ask you to please keep praying! 😀

(And.. if you’ve not done so yet.. please catch up on Jon and Amy’s story!)
