This is the day that the Lord has made, I WILL rejoice and be glad in it. That is so hard on days like these but I press on and say Praise the Lord oh My Soul. Who Am I to understand Your ways...who am I to give you anything but praise.
CJ had his CT scan late last night and his MRI of the brain early this morning.. We specifically need prayer for clear results. We are thanking God in advance for those very results. We need prayer to guard our thoughts and hearts as we wait. It is so hard to sit and wait for the results. CJ is struggling today mainly with his stomach and his rash. Please ask for relief in those specific two areas. He is praying for relief for his stomach right now.
I need to send this lap top home with Chris so Allie can take it to class but I wanted to let you know where we are and what are prayer needs are. We don't think we can get through this without all of you and your prayers.
We are humbled at how far this has reached and how many people are praying for CJ. God has moved the spirit of His people to pray and I ask that you continue to persevere in prayer. He promises us that when His people who are called by His name, humble themselves and pray, he hears them and turns to them and heals their land. I will claim that healing for the disease in this land that is attacking my boy.
As hard as this is, I want to share with you that since CJ was little I have prayed God would use him mightily to lead many to Him or back to Him. In my heart I always knew that what I was asking for was not for a life of ease and would lead down difficult roads. I am overwhelmed at what is happening but I am trusting in Gods faithfulness.
I wish I had the time and space to write and tell you how many ways God prepared us for this day. He prevented us from moving two years ago away from this city that has one of the top hospitals in the nation for this treatment. He brought us to a church home where we have a family of support that is like nothing I have ever seen or heard of. They are truly living servants of Jesus Christ and His people. We love you and thank God for bringing us to you at Palm Vista. He has given me and Chris parents that are walking through this with us every step of the way. He lead us to start this blog months ago and we were never quite sure why. There are so many little things that point to His sovereign hand in this. I know this has been filtered through His sovereignty as hard as that is sometimes to comprehend and accept. He is even continuing to press on my mind certain individuals who I have been praying for for a few years now. Especially one who God has pressed on my heart and mind. I know they are reading this blog and I just want you to know that even though we are battling this, I am still in prayer for you. God has given me the grace to continue to pray for you and asked me to not give up even now. May your heart and eyes and mind be opened to the amazing love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who willingly gave His own life as a ransom for many.
Tomorrow will be the big day. He will need to be bathed in prayer continually. He will be having the operation for his port, the bone marrow samples, spinal fluids and possibly a spinal injection and anything else they need to do while he is under. He may even start the chemotherapy as early as tomorrow. We are still hoping for a release at the end of this week or early weekend by the latest.
Continue to pray with us. Thank you to all the people that are fasting today, tomorrow and/or Friday. May God honor your heart as you seek him through fasting and prayers.

The George Family
