Your prayers are making a difference…

So many of you have been praying consistently for my family since my post in February.  I am so thankful to be surrounded by people of prayer.

I want you to know that your prayers are making a difference.  They sustained me during the recent Hearts at Home conference.  They have given me courage to love even in this difficult season.  Your prayers have put a hedge of protection around my children.  And more than anything, your prayers have broken through spiritual warfare that has been at the core of this dark season of my life.

I want you to know that healing is taking place. Grace, love, forgiveness, and hope are prevailing.  God is changing and molding both of us.

Our conversations are now centered on healing and hope.  We’re discussing a transition home.  We’re enjoying more time together than time apart these days.

I am humbled.

Grateful.

Hopeful.

Thank you for your partnership and your prayers.  It means the world to me.

    My wife and I were seperated for 3 years. From a Human perspective I should have just kept on being single, but that’s not what God says. I decided that If I was going to claim His love, I better do what He says. It’s been about 25 years since we got back together. The first 19 were really tough! The last few have been better – maybe we are listenening to Him better??? What I did through those years was to remember the word of some songs that made a difference to me. Like this one—- So Forget About Yourself, And Concentrate On Him, And Worship Him….

    Jill, I am so very glad to hear this. I was so saddened when I read your post in February and I think of and pray for you often. I was amazed at how together you appeared to be at the National Conference and was pleased to hear then that things seemed to be turning in the right direction. Thank you for updating us, and keep believing God will work things out!

    So grateful to hear things are moving in a positive direction. We are going through some challenges in our home and I have been reminded that we may not like what we are going through, but if we can use it to learn, grow and be closer to God it is not wasted.

    Oh, Jill… what music to my ears! I know it has not been easy. Everything you knew and relied on has been challenged… and it leaves your world turned upside down. Just know God is at work… He’s just putting all that you’ve learned over the years to a test. Can’t you hear him saying: “How much do you trust Me, Jill?”

    I’m certain that as you keep your focus upward, you will not only stay above water, but someday you will lfind yourself looking back in awe of all the good things that that will come from this season. May God continue to bless you for your faithfulness. You, Mark and your marriage remain in my prayers.
