PRAYERS FOR JOEY MARTIN-FEEK
According to the Bible, there are close to 124 miracles mentioned throughout its pages. Three dozen just within the four gospels.
Joey Martin-Feek is a beautiful, vibrant daughter of God that is in desperate need of a miracle. In fact all around the world there are folks in desperate need of a miracles. God is no respecter of people. He loves all His children the same and does not place one above the other.
As I sit here these last few weeks and ponder on GOD’S job, I can assure that I am glad that I do not have His job. For most of my adult life I have been a firm believer that the business of living and dying is Gods business not mine, and therefore we are to accept his decisions of who goes and when and who lingers behind for a spell. Yet I cannot help feeling the MAGNATITUDE OF THIS SITUATION……
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN KENNEDY WAS SHOT,
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS SHOT
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE MEN LANDED ON THE MOON
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS WENT DOWN
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU HEARD THE SAD NEWS ABOUT JOEY’S CANCER RETURNING…
Yes….She and Rory have made THAT KIND OF A DIFFERENCE in the world.
Our entire nation is coming together tonight in the form of a prayer vigil for Joey at 8p.m. Her and her husband have always kept Christ front and center in their lives. They have continuously given God the glory for their good fortune, their voices, any successes they had, even in difficult situations they continued to praise the Lord. No matter what life was handing them, they continued to lead HIS army, their brothers and sisters in Christ… with dignity, honesty, and grace. They have been true inspirations to millions of people. Whether it was their laughter and love towards one another that NEVER STOPS shining, or the way they give back, always paying forward all that was given to them, or just the beautifulness of their joined voices. They are pillars in the Christian Community and in the Country Music world.
Over a year ago Joey had surgery for cancer….. (the same stage IV type I myself had ten years ago). She has been a real trooper and gone through every chemo and radiation process as the doctors have prescribed and it appears to have served no purpose. Now, they have ceased all medical intervention and chosen to go home and trust and pray ….and trust and pray more.
I imagine small children usually stomp their feet and get loud when they think we cannot hear them or we are not paying attention to them and they need to be heard, to communicate to us.
For the last several weeks I have walked around in my own life trying to make some sense out of this situation that is trying to take Joey from all of us. I realize we aren’t supposed to be angry with the Lord, we are not supposed to question His judgment or ask why. However the human side of me is asking why. Day after day on the Inside I ache and hurt and cry over this whole sad story, on the outside I want to jump up and down and stomp my feet, grit my teeth and shout for how much I don’t understand this, how unfair….ill timed….
Joey has a little girl who needs her momma, needs to have a few more years with her, GOD PLEASE GRANT JOEY A MIRACLE, please don’t take her.
Life is a voyage, and we cross some pretty turbulent waves at times, there are storms that come out of nowhere and threaten to shake us to our very core, capsize our vessel and possibly dump us at the bottom of our ocean.
We are all on this journey, and it is not an easy one. Let’s join hands and remember we are all walking one another towards HOME.
When we have reached our final destination it will have been worth it all. I believe this. The trials of the “trip” of our “Voyage” it will be lost in the GLORY of the reunion/celebration that awaits us. But for now, please join our nations Thursday evening at 8p.m.
Whisper a pray for Joey tonight….for a miracle, Her miracle. And a peace that will surpass all understanding, for if our Father does not hand out a miracle, there will be literally thousands of people crushed, crying and praying…an entire nation that will remember where they were when ……..
