how He loves us

God is always speaking to us with a still small voice. Sometimes when you need it the most and you are begging for His infinite wisdom its louder and more audible. If we will just sit still and listen we will hear it. The world labels it a "conscience" but really it's the Holy Spirit.
God reminded me this morning, that I am hearing Him even though Satan has placed many doubts in my head that I am not. When I had some moments of doubt, He made me recall the voice that told me not to Stint or Shunt Elijah. Dr. G wanted to stint at first but then decided he wanted us to wait until we got to Cincy. I was so worried about Elijah's bladder. I just thought it might be best to go ahead and let him do it. Dr.G said that he understood my concern and agreed that something could happen to Elijah between the time and said he would Shunt if I wanted him to.
I can't help but think of what would have happened if I had not obeyed and let him go ahead and shunt. Dr. G had no idea that the uterine wall was separated and it could have been deadly for both of us. This only showed up on the MRI in Ohio. God's hand of protection has always been on us and will continue to be for the rest of our lives as long as we abide in Him and make Him our refuge. Oh, how HE loves us! Just thought someone may need to hear that. I also wanted to leave you with this great song and video that is an awesome picture of just how much God really does love us. I hope you will watch it. Much Love-Kelli


  1. Kelli, we (Marvin family and Evangel church) continue in prayer for you and your family. We have had people even today email us from our church asking about Elijah. I can't wait to meet this precious one one day. I think I have told you that we lost a precious one at 17 weeks. We were never told what happened. He just lived and kicked... and then didn't. But what a precious gift. God gave me a verse even from the beginning of the pregnancy that I didn't understand until later: But as for me the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may TELL of all THY works. Ps. 73:28.
    You are on a stage. Souls will be won because of Elijah. Blessed be HIS name.
    Love you all.

  2. Kelli,

    We are praying for you and your family. Word is spreading about your precious son and many people are praying.
