Though the fig tree should not blossom
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail

and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the LORD;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
GOD, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the deer's;

he makes me tread on my high places.
Habakkuk 3:17-19

Hey guys!!!

I just wanted to leave an encouragement. The other day I was reading my journal. It was from October...and I wrote all about Ian's car accident and going to the hospital and stuff. After I read my journal entry, I realized how serious the accident was. I remember the doctor coming in to tell us that his brain was going to die in the next 24 hours and then his heart would too. I didn't realize how bad it was. I remember the doctor saying that there was One who knew what was going to happen, but He wasn't there with us then. I remember praying as a group after that to God and saying that that doctor wasn't right. God was there that whole time...and He still is with us. Ian was going to die...all the doctors said so. He was about to have surgery to donate his liver because there was no hope left. But God has been faithful...and He was allowed Ian to live. Although we don't know why God would choose to do this, we know that it will bring glory to Him. Stay strong Murphy's...God is with you. He's with Ian. He has a plan and this is exactly what He wanted to happen. Just wanted to encourage you guys. I love you all so so so much. God bless...

My family and I do not know yours, but we are members of Providence Church in Pittsburgh.

I have read this blog since September when our youth group first prayed for Ian. There have been many times I've wanted to comment, to tell about how your posts have affected or encouraged me, but I never have.

I read this verse earlier this week after reading it in Humility: True Greatness. It's no coincidence to see it posted...it's God at work in His people.
