Please pray that we will get some answers soon and that we will not have to have surgery again right away....Thanks so much!" (Update: he is seeing the neurosurgeon today!)

When Tears Fall

By: Rian

I feel that sometimes christians think they are above suffering. I mean, Jesus suffered and died for us so we could have this happy, go lucky life...right? Fortunately that is not the case. Even though Jesus died for us we still live in a fallen and sinful world. A world where bad things happen to good people every minute of every day. A world that is so hard and so cold most of the time, I'm not sure how any of us stay hopeful for the future.

I just know that God is good ALL THE TIME!!! Even when our life circumstances don't seem to prove it. I know we all have questions that we would love for Him to answer, but that is where faith comes into the picture. We have faith that God is in control and that one day we will get the answers to those questions. For now we must remember that He is good and that He will NEVER leave or forsake us.

Below are lyrics from a song by Tim Hughes. One of my very best friends played this song when the women of my church were having a prayer meeting for me. So many nights I would lay in bed with my ipod and listen to this song as I cried. These words were and still are the cry of my heart. When I didn't know what to say to God Tim Hughes said it for me.

When Tears Fall

I've had questions, without answers
I've known sorrow, I have known pain
but theres one thing that I'll cling to
you are faithful, Jesus your true.

When hope is lost, I'll call you savior
when pain surrounds, I'll call you healer
when silence falls, you'll be the song within my heart

In the lone hour, of my sorrow
through the darkest night of my soul
you surround me, and sustain me
my defender, forever more

When hope is lost, I'll call you savior
when pain surrounds, I'll call you healer
when silence falls, you'll be the song within my heart

I will praise you, I will praise you
when the tears fall, still I will sing to you
I will praise you, Jesus praise you
Through the suffereing still I will sing

When hope is lost, I'll call you savior
when pain surrounds, I'll call you healer
when silence falls, you'll be the song within my heart

I've had questions, without answers
I've known sorrow, i have known pain
but theres one thing, that i'll cling to
you are faithful, Jesus your true

When hope is lost, I'll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, I'll call you healer
when silence falls, you'll be the song within my heart

I will praise you, I will praise you
when the tears fall, still I will sing to you
I will praise you, Jesus praise you
Through the suffereing still I will sing X2

When hope is lost, I'll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, I'll call you healer
when silence falls, you'll be the song within my heart

Pray for Mikayla, she has developed GVHD (graph vs. host disease). Pray for quick healing.

Prayer request from Reagan's mom; let's keep this little girl covered in prayers:

"We need lots of prayers right now. Reagan has been throwing up for over 4 weeks now and the doctors have not been able to figure out why. They've run tests but nothing is coming back with any answers. The only idea anyone has is that her seizure medication, the one that has finally made her seizure free after 2 horrendous years of nonstop constant seizing, is causing the vomiting. They want to lower the dosage to see if that's it, but I am terrified that this is going to bring her seizures back. Terrified. Please keep it in your prayers that this change won't have any negative effects on her and that they will find the true cause for the vomiting."

Abby Riggs is still having headaches. Please pray for relief from these.


This is Jacob; he is 3.5 years old and suffers from mitochondrial disease.

Please just keep all of these families in your prayers this month. Any day is hard, but the holidays are especially a hard time for them. They need our prayers more than ever right now.

Thank you
