God is Good!



Christine and I would like to thank each of you for keeping Liz in your prayers! There has not been a day gone by that we haven't absolutely and completely senced God's presense in every action, and every interaction. We know that Liz has been saturated in prayer! Your support has been overwhelming! Randy & Christine

Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.
Hebrew 11:1

Hey Lothrops,
The prayers you're feeling aren't going to stop either. We will sustain you all the way through this with our prayers and our actions. It's an honor.

Hi Lothrops!
I just wanted to let you know that my family is praying for Liz and the whole Lothrop family. I have such respect for you Randy and it looks like others feel the same about you and your family. You can count on us to continue our prayers for you all.
Take care!

Hey Liz, I'm praying for you and have invited some of my praying friends to join in. I will ask my entire church to pray for you as well. The scripture comes to mind Psalm 62:6&7. Read it. Believe it. You have the victory. Jesus has provided your healing already. Hang in there and receive it. Keep smiling!

Uncle Greg E. said...

Hello Liz,

I am praying for you each and every day!!! I will see you this weekend.

Love, Uncle Greg E.

Mr. Sarge said...

I agree with Melissa - love the pics!

Liz, I hope you know how precious you and your whole family are to us. We hate to see you sick, and we've been having some serious conversations with God about that. He loves you even more than we do (and that's a bunch), and He will get you through this. We're here to help with whatever you need, but wish we could do more.

I keep thinking about how you guys need to REST to keep your strength up....

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
Your burden doesn't seem like a "light" one - I guess that means we need to give it back to Him! We're doing that, Glittergirl! The Sargent gang is praying for you nonstop. Hang in there. See you soon. Sunny and Batman say "hi." Let me know when you're ready for a strawberry frap, and I'll smuggle one in to you (if the big doc with the goatee says it's okay).
Mr. Sarge

Lothrop Family,
We have been praying for Liz and all of you. Thank you for the updates and privilege to pray for your family. I read a verse in a study yesterday that I prayed for you. Micah 7:7 But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.
We will continue to pray knowing God hears us.

Love you guys so much, and definitely continuing to pray. You have a whole posse of junior high and high school Overdrivers praying and fasting and doing anything that they can to support you, and we can't wait to see you out of the hospital again. To Him who is able to do immeasurably more...

Cindy Dodson said...

Hey Girlfriend!

Wow! You could start a whole new country with all the friends you have! You are on my brain and in my heart every second of every day. I have been so touched by all the postings on this blog. I've rarely seen such love in this amount and displayed in this way. You are an incredible young woman with such light, laugher and love within you. My thoughts are positive and my prayer is fierce and focused for no nasty ol' genetic marker and for complete remission. Stay strong girlfriend!
Love, Mrs. Dodson

simhoff said...

All of the Imhoffs are praying for Liz and especially that the generic marker is not present. Please know that there are literally thousands of people who hold the Lothrop Family dear to their hearts and will do anything in their power to help you through these difficult times. You are loved by so many. You're the best!

Wanted you to know that the moms at Moms in Touch were praying for you today, and our families are praying for you too. You are surrounded by your God.

You hem me in - behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Psalm 139:5

We'll keep praying!

Hi there Christine and Family;

I will try again to leave a message to let you know how much I am thinking of your family and praying for Lizzie. I am technology impaired; but determined. I wish I had words to inspire you at a time like this. But I think Lizzie's gorgeous smile probably provides plenty of inspiration. Love Shelley Ahleman
