Update on Anne Marie...Urgent Prayer Request
My sis called yesterday afternoon after speaking with Mark regarding Anne Marie's lung biopsy.........Her doctor had just phoned him to convey the news.....the report was not what we were praying for. Her oncologist was very shocked that the pathology findings indicated cancer cells present of the same aggressive type that she had nine years ago. He told Mark that he had Pathology run the tests twice to confirm it before he would accept the report. She will have a PET scan today and meet with her doctors to determine what course to take next.
Needless to say, our hearts are very heavy......numb actually. My sis is having a really hard time and would appreciate you prayers. I told her I would be posting an update and it meant so much to her to know that prayers are going up on her/their behalf. She and her husband are pastors and the only thing she wanted to do was get to Wednesday worship service last night and praise Him in the storm and be in His Presence. We are a family that trusts in the faithfulness of our God and the sure foundation of His promises and the power of prayer!
My husband and I reminisced last evening about all the Lord has done for Anne Marie. He touched her and brought her through aggressive breast cancer, double mastectomy, extensive chemo and radiation........She wasn't supposed to be able to have a baby due to effects of her treatments........BUT, she did and their miracle baby boy Joshua was born!! They celebrated his second birthday last Friday, June 11th!! Glory to God!! As we recalled all the miracles the Lord has done for Mark and Ann Marie, my husband spoke these words of encouragement that ministered to my heart ........ "God's miracles never end or run out of power - the same miracle working healing power that brought her through before is still ever present to bring Anne Marie through again"! Thank you Jesus!
So, with a heavy heart and numb emotions, I'm leaning hard into the arms of Jesus and standing upon His Word and the Blood bought miracle working power that has already brought Anne Marie through over and over before. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in Anne Marie's body and quickens, makes alive every cell, organ and tissue within her and no weapons formed against her shall prosper - In the Mighty Name of Jesus!! She is a daughter of the Most High God!
Thank you for standing with us and your continued prayers for Anne Marie. You'll never fully know how much your prayers mean.....Bless each and every one of you.
I'll keep you posted.......
HE IS FAITHFUL!!!
Love and Sweet Blessings!
