Godfrey Family Update

The Godfrey family has posted the update of the birth of their son. Read with prayers on your lips, as they will surely need them over the next days, weeks and months.

What a challenge and delight the faith of this family is to me.

    Oh Dawn, thank you for posting this, I’ve been wondering all day how they were.

    I just have to share what part God let me have in this (without ever having met the Godfrey family or even reading her blog before this)

    Monday Night/tuesday morning at 4am my little girl woke up, bright eyed and bushy tailed. I was so frustrated, I hadn’t gotten more than 2 hours of sleep the past two nights and I wanted sleep SOOO bad. But I grabbed the very happy and awake baby and went down stairs. I had planned to mindlessly play solitaire while bouncing and nursing but it came to me instead to pray for Susan and the Godfrey family. So from about 4:15 am until 5am on Sept. 12 I was up praying for the family. I had no idea of course that was when he was being born.

    I feel so privledged that God used me at all. Not that they’ll ever know, or need to, or anything else. But that I got to lose sleep to be before God’s throne at a time a fellow believer needed prayer. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before and it takes my breath away. We serve an amazing God.

    The faith of this family is so inspiring. All along, reading about their trust in the Father to provide all that they need in all of this has been so sweet and so good.

    Tiffany, The Lord has blessed me with this privilege several times in my life….it ALWAYS amazes me. I can never understand His ways, I’m just grateful that He includes me. It’s so humbling.

    Thank you for letting me…us rejoice with you in being used by the Lord. I love hearing how Father works.

  3. Amazing testimony through this little boy’s life…and through his family’s life. But I’m still so sad.

  4. Oh hey. You can just call me Holly. 🙂

    What a testimony to God’s grace even in the most difficult times. I am reminded of what another Father suffered as He watched His Son receive the wrath that I deserved. He knows grief like no other (in an infinite sense) and is the only One Who can truly understand and comfort. How wonderful that the Godfrey’s know and depend on Him!

    Thanks for your comments and encouragement. Your sharing of the Sabbath rest in your home has been used by the Lord to motivate me 🙂 “Jesus is quite clear that the Sabbath is made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” This is where I am struggling and praying. It is just so easy for me to be legalistic about the Sabbath. I have even questioned, is it *ok* to cook or sew on the Sabbath since I consider those things hobbies? I tend to be a person that follows the rules(is that my first born personality or the fact that my dad was a Major General in the Army Reserves???). Anyhow, I am really praying that God will show me how to have a rest and focus on Him rather than set down some rigid guidelines and then honor them.

    I totally agree that it is all God that I am studying the book of Daniel as we live here in Babylon. Just this Tuesday I was talking with the gal that invited us to this church. We are sad that their family is moving away from Las Vegas at the end of September. We both agree that our short friendship could very well have been God’s plan to get us to this church. It is so awesome to see God’s plan unfolding.

    Blessings to you!
