I just got off the phone with the NICU. Hope was put back on the ventilator tonight. She is doing okay. When I found out earlier that this was going to happen, I called Mike really discouraged. "Why would God do this? Why won't he just touch her and make her well? He saved her - why this?" Mike reminded me that no one can understand or guess why God does what he does. We need to trust that he sees more than we do and that he is caring for our Hope. I reread Isaiah 40 again tonight. I know Mike is right. Please just pray for us. I don't even know what to ask you to pray....just pray.

27 Why do you say, O Jacob,
and complain, O Israel,
"My way is hidden from the LORD;
my cause is disregarded by my God"?

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

  1. God is going to give you a good surgeon to make her well. God is giving you good nurses to watch over her. Amy, please try not to worry. We are all praying for you.
