Maggies heart

Emily here, just heard from Gwen and am so encouraged by our gracious, Sovereign Lord.

But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look on his appearance or on the height or stature, because I have rejected him.  For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."  I Samuel 16:7

This is the scripture from Jesus Calling today and you can imagine the sweet comfort it was to Gwen.  They spent most of the night WIDE awake as pain meds tend to rev Mags up instead of knocking her out.  She doesn't seem to be in any pain and that is a huge praise though.

What beautiful scripture for such a gorgeous child.  Though she woke this morning with no hair and 2 extenders in her scalp, the Lord faithfully reminds all of us that it is the heart that He sees, not outward appearances.

Continue to lift them up in prayer, may Maggie remain pain free and free from any infection.

10 kind words.:

absolutely!! What a wonderful scripture to reflect on during this time. Though we know Maggie is going to emerge from this both beautiful on the inside and the outside! She was fearfully and wonderfully made, and this is just a season to get to a better place in her life.

Hang in there, Sweet Girl. You are SO loved and we are all praying for a quick and beautiful recovery!

Blessings & Hugs! <><

Jesus knows how to meet us right where we are from Jesus Calling! Beautiful Sweet Girl! So thankful she is not in pain and we are continuing to cover you and every detail of her in prayer. I am sure you are more than thankful to have yesterday behind you and now just to take every day at a time. Hoping you get a little nap in
today and that your time at the hospital goes well.
We love you guys! LIsa
