Seeing Jesus AS Everything

We finished up our last chemo treatment last Monday but it's been a tough go these past 10 days. After a trip to the ER last week, Kim just wasn't bouncing back like she did in previous rounds.  Today was the first day Kim felt well enough to go out. So we made a trip to Red Mango and some sense of normalcy is starting to return. Thank you Lord. That said, please continue to pray for Andrew and Connor as they prepare themselves for their bone marrow transplants on May 16th & 17th. They are both taking a beating right now with all the radiation and chemo leading up to next week and the road after the transplant is still a long one. You can follow Andrew HERE and Connor HERE. It's good to know that the same God who has held us in His hand has Andrew and Connor in His hands as well.

"...for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard."  -Isaiah 52:12b
The Lord promised He would go before us and walk behind us and we have felt His hand of protection all along the way. Isn't that just like God? He doesn't just begin a good work - He completes it (Phil 1:6). He's not just the creator of the universe - He's the sustainer (Col 1:16-17). He's not just the author of our faith - He's the perfecter (Heb 12:2). He's not just the architect of heaven - He's the builder (Heb 11:10). He is the "Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Rev 22:13).

Everything that matters in life begins and ends with Jesus. He is all we need.

In His Grace,

Peter & Kim
