I know I already blogged today but I don't care. I felt the need to blog again. =).

I was just sitting here reading a blog about a lady that just found out she has cancer. If you look at her little Feedjit thing on the right side of her blog, you'll notice that there are people from all over the United States checking her blog all the time. And she has 200 followers right now. This blog was just made a little over a week ago. I find that incredible. So incredibly amazing. And wonderful.

I don't know Libby or Justin but Justin is a part of Young Life in Chesapeake, Virginia and a lot of people involved in Young Life around here know him. They just found out that Libby has cancer and it's not like I can even begin to put myself in their shoes but I just think the community of Christians is so wonderful. In a matter of one week, people all over the world are praying for her and her family. It's crazy how God works. Crazy awesome.

That's really all I had to say but I hope you'll be a part of the prayer chain. God has a plan for them and I think it would be cool if everyone is a part of it. So feel free to check out their blog if you haven't already. And feel free to pray if that's something God put on your heart.

  1. Meredith- I clicked on the link to Libby's blog that you posted here, and just spent the last couple of hours reading it. To say I am moved, inspired, and more assured of how worthy God is of our trust would be an understatement.

    The two themes that I found to be recurring throughout her (and Justin's) posts, were freedom, love, and trust. There is this incredible amount of freedom and love that they are experiencing on a new level through this "tragedy"...freedom from the grip that fear, anxiety, bitterness, resentment, hatred, depression, etc. would otherwise inevitably have on them. A depth of love for each other that they probably would not have reached were it not for this happening...and all this freedom and love because of in the God whose ways are higher than our ways, and whose intentions are never for ANYTHING but our eternal good. We were created to be conformed to the image of Jesus, and to have that happen through being in a relationship with Him...through KNOWING Him.

    There is testimony after testimony in their blog of this happening in their lives. That is, knowing the Lord more through this as they lean on Him like never before. What a joy to get to pray into their lives and for God's continued work there. As you said, community is truly so amazing. We don't even know them, but yet we brothers and sisters in the family of our great God.

    I love you, Meredith Sledge!!!
