Requests.

Good Morning, Lovelies,

I hope that you are all being bathed in God's grace as you go about your days today. More than ever, I realize that we can't confine or compartmentalize God into a portion of our day. No, He wants to be poured out into every single part of it, every facet, every layer. It's all His.

I'm so glad that I'd already planned to be off today for a couple of appointments, because I woke up with a headache to beat the band. I was told that headaches following brain surgery are very common and to be expected, but this one is quite strong. Brian, who is always so quick to care for me, took me to the pharmacy to get some more drugs that will hopefully help alleviate some of the pain. Pray for a quick recovery from this headache.

Today is a big day because radiation is starting at 1:40 today. Honestly, I'm just ready to get it over and done with. I'm NOT looking forward to it. I DON'T want to do it, but I trust God to carry me through radiation, just like He's cared me through everything else. Please pray that His presence would surround me as I go for the treatment. Radiation is an interesting thing. You have to lay still and quiet in a room by yourself for several minutes. It gives the mind lots of time to think. Would you pray that my mind would be set on things above, not on earthly things? Would you pray that the Lord would strengthen me through the renewing of my mind? I know the experience will be a rough one without His help.

Well, folks, I just wanted to check in this morning and petition you for prayer for those two things: bad headache and radiation. Aren't you glad we can trust God with our cares and concerns?

Have a blessed day in the Lord!

"And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproached, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
2 Cor. 12:9-10
Continue to praise Him with an eternal perspective regarding what you're going through. Thank Him as you ly in there. Tell Him why He is worthy of glory at all costs to you. Praise Him for the many wonderous thing sHe has already done in and through you because of these battles. Ad you do this, I KNOW He will keep you in perfect peace. Peace that is supernatural. The world can not fathem praising and thanking God for a trial such as this. To their earthly minds, it seems abserd. But we are called to give thanks in ALL things and as a result, we have God's PROMISE of peace as our reward. This can only be supernatural so I am praying Lindsey that in the supernatural, you will rest today.
Be at peace, dear friend.

I am praying! My son went through radiation to his head/spine for 30 days straight. I know how taxing it can be and I will be praying that you maintain your energy and wellness!

Think of the Lord right there with you, holding your hand, as a father would with his child.

Bringing you before the Father, throughout this day and this season is an honor. Thank you Father, for bringing our eyes to you and keeping Lindsey and Brian so tightly wrapped in your comforting arms. Make it tangible Lord, you know sometimes we just need the feel of your touch and breath. Breathe in fresh life, Father God. You are awesome, yes even in "this" place. Hallelujah!!

I've been praying for the radiation treatments ever since I heard you were going to have them. I'm praying that the Lord will give you a peace that passes all understanding.

"Oh Father, as Lindsey is preparing to get her radiation treatment right now I am asking You whole-heartedly to pour out your spirit upon her mind. Please give her a supernatural calmness and peace that You and You alone can give. Hold her closely Lord and enable her to take every one of her fears and lay them before You. I ask that You would intervene and guard her mind against the attacks of the enemy and protect her. Zremind her of all Your goodness and faithfulness in her life. Remind her how precious she is to You and so many others. Encourage her spirit and guard her mind. Thanks you father for your endless mercies and for the peace I believe You are pouring upon her right now. In Jesus name, amen."
