IDK

Today is one of those days I'd like to know some answers, but the truth is I don't know.   Here's what I do know.   Jess woke up this morning with chest pain.   They have ruled out a heart problem or a blood clot.   She could just be sick-- they took some cultures but we don't have the results yet.   She could also have spinal cord compression again.   They took some scans and x-rays which showed a possible problem in an area of her back below where she had surgery and rods put in-- possibly a spinal cord compression at T-12.   A neurosurgeon is going to take a little at the results, but we don't know when the neurosurgeon will do that.  Jess is obviously not feeling good, but she still made the trek to get radiation today.    She is probably the most strong when she is weak. I know you would like some answers too, but right now we will just have to pray without knowing.

IDK I Don't Know....three words I used to hate to hear and hate to say. But, guess who does know?...Jesus. So when we don't know, when you are scared to death, when we don't get the plan, Jessa reminds me what to do...Turn My Eyes Upon Jesus. Please, Jesus, take care of Jess. Please bring wisdom to her doctors right now. If you are reading her blog, would you please right now pray for healing? Pray for the pain to go away? Pray for her family? Pray for the cancer to stop? God tells us to lay our requests at His feet...so here they are. I love you, Jessa. Thousands of people are praying for you right now! YEA!

Love you,
Aunt Sandy

Jake and Jessica,
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may stengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fulness of God.
Eph 3:16-19

Love,
Julie Medley

Jess,

I pray that God will send a hedge of protection around you and bring peace and comfort that passes all understanding. Rest assured that HDK...He Does Know...

"I have a plan for you declare the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future..." ~ Jeremiah 29:11. We've heard it a thousand times, but I need to be reminded sometimes when IDK.

You are in our thoughts and prayers all day long. In fact, if I forget to pray for you at night with Payton, she will remind me!! Isn't that precious. I know that God hears our prayers and HDK.
