Rebecca Brown  Psalm 16:11 🌳

-Update on Judah by Marlon-
See 1st few comments for full update.
Our Good God?!
If you just want a quick update on Judah’s condition, skim to the next section. But I have written this first because I know it’s what God wants me to say, and hopefully it will encourage some of you.
Yesterday my sister reminded me that God wanted to use this situation for his glory, she encouraged me to use this platform to talk about our amazing God. Then I had to remind her of who the pastor was in our family, love you . Honestly, I struggled with what she said, because although I knew God was at work, part of me was upset that He was allowing this to happen. I titled this “Our Good God?!” and the punctuation is extremely important. This statement for me has been both a question and exclamation, for the last few months. This has been a really difficult season for me, our fam, and our ministry… More than ever I have found myself asking the question, why? If you are a good God, and if you have called me, why are you letting all these bad things happen? Theological I could come up with 5 or 6 answers, and I have taught them often in sermons, but a stock Christian response wasn’t going to fix the angst in my spirit. Why let my son be in this kind of pain for a week? Why let the doctors assume this was some type of viral infection? If they would have sent him home to, “wait it out,” like was suggested he could have died. Why let my wife suffer like she has for years? Why put our family through all these ups and downs? Even in my devotions this morning, I read as God called Moses to deliver the children of Israel from Egypt, but once Moses obeyed and spoke to Pharaohs things got worse, much worse (Ex.5:21). So, once again I found myself asking why?
If you’re reading this and you think I’m questioning God, I am not. I know how the story ends for the Children of Israel, and despite my current difficulties, I know how my story will ultimately end as well. But here is what the Holy Spirit reminded me, and I pray it encourages you when you are in the midst of something difficult. I often need faith in the goodness and plans of God, “... from faith to faith; as it is written,

Urgent prayer request:
Judah has gotten worse today. They are taking him back for a scan soon. Please pray for peace and comfort right now. #keepingoureyesonjesus

Thank you to everyone for all your prayers! We appreciate them so very much. We feel so much love from you all! So Marlon and I just talked with the doctor this morning. And most of the major bacteria test results came back negative. So he is saying it is probably viral. We should know a little more this afternoon. But as far as his stay he will continue to be here until he can hold his liquids and eventually eat something. He does get a little burst of energy and will talk for a bit before falling back to sleep, but he has a lot of abdominal pain and swelling. So prayer for the pain. * On a side note I met with my neurosurgeon in Oregon yesterday. It went really well, he is putting me ahead for surgery so I should have a date soon. So that's an answer to prayer. There has been so much going on for us. And being away from Judah for a night was so tough on me, I was really emotional. As a mommy I just want to be by his side every minute. I am so thankful for my amazing husband who has been a pilar, and that the Lord really has been taking care of us in the midst of this all. He is truly good. Thank you again for your prayers. 🖤

Asking for prayer for our Judah! He has been sick since Sunday, but as the days went on he continued to get worse, less responsive, and not able to control his bowel movements. He was admitted to the hospital last night. They have been doing a lot of tests trying to figure out what is going on. We still don't really have answers, and today he seems to be doing worse. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors, and for peace for Marlon and I. We love our baby so much, it's always tough to see our babies not well. "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 23:1-4 🖤

I love them so much. #browntown

As always every year I love posting my favourite gowns from the Met Gala. And since I am laying here in bed choosing I thought I would share again. ✨#metgalafavs #fashionlove #bucketlistdream

Happy Birthday to one of the most special, influential, friend/sisters in Christ. Jasmine has such a passion for Jesus, and teaching his word. Her kindness and friendship has been so important to Marlon and I. She has spoken into to each one of our lives over and over. And Marlon's favourite quote comes from Jasmine's missionary Bio class. We love you so much. Have a blessed birthday! #beyouJazbecauseyouareprettyamazing @jalnutt @marlonbrown11

Back in his arms. ✨And I am super happy and proud of this amazing guy, finishing his BA in pastoral leadership while church planting, director of soccer shots, and taking care of our big family and cat. I love you so much Marlon Brown. #godisgood #nomorewaitingatnightforhim #throwingthoseearplugsaway
