For Stacy

She has been on my heart more than usual lately, and this morning, driving to work, the following song came on KLOVE. I wanted to share it with her (she checks our blog, too) and with those of you who are joining me in praying for her, Spencer, and Isaac.

Whatever You're Doing -- Sanctus Real

It's time for healing, time to move on
It's time to fix what's been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It's time to find my way to where I belong

There's a wave that's crashing over me
And all I can do is surrender

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see
but I'm giving in to something Heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Reevaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow Your will
Or just climbing aimlessly over these hills

So show me what it is You want from me
I give everything, I surrender...to...

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see
but I'm giving in to something Heavenly


Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I've wanted to say for so many years
Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You're up to something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This IS something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly
Something Heavenly...

I know that right now, Stacy and Spencer are living through the chorus of this song, in that this all feels like chaos. But I know that they are also trusting that God is up to something bigger than all of us, and all too soon, with Isaac's arrival, we will all see what His intentions for Isaac's life are.

And we will choose to praise.

Stacy, we love you.

Monica...it's Jessica Rice (Flint) from PCC. I was in your prayer group my freshman year. I heard about Stacey's story and our whole church is praying for her...praying that God will work His way in their lives and then give them the strength for whatever His answer is. My husband and I know firsthand how trying to explain your choice to keep a child despite all your doctor's belief's that the child you have will never be "normal". We are praying for her and her husband. Her story is nothing but glorifying to God and has been a blessing already to those in our church even though we do not know her. Let her know we are all praying for them.
