JoAnna’s Journal

Mini-Update From JoAnna

First of all, I want to thank each person who has visited and will visit this website with thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement. God has been reminding me over and over, “The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective.” I believe our prayers have been thus far, and I believe they will continue to be. God is in control. As I told my dad today, “We know God is in control; we just have to find out what he’s in control of [as we walk day to day leaving my mom in His hands]”….

My mom has taken an unanticipated turn. She is headed to the ICU as they try to discover why her blood pressure has fallen to 80/40 and why her body is getting rid of blood.

I truly believe that God is in control. No matter the outcome – God knows.

He has given me an abundance of peace as I trust Him from afar when I’d really like to be there every step of the way. Growing up, I would have horrible dreams, so every night before bed, my mom started saying: “May your thoughts and your dreams be of Him.” So, now, we rest in His grace, and may our thoughts and our dreams be of Him as we seek His face and trust His will.

Mom, I love you.
