September 17, 2020 Nancy Update

FYI: Ministry Update:  Ketchikan PTH Conference, scheduled for September 25-26, is postponed.

Dear Point To Hope Family & Friends,

Do you sense the change in season?  No matter where we are, there are changes happening in the natural and in the spirit realm, even if we can’t see them!  For example, I cannot see, nor feel the onset of fall back in Alaska, but I know it is happening!   And when the right time comes, I will receive full benefits and experience the new season firsthand.  Perhaps you are experiencing an atypical season: literal or spiritual fires, rain, winds, etc.  Regardless of where we are individually, we are all in the same season.  So, in one accord, we press in, waiting and watching for the Word of the Lord to be performed in Nancy.  We can also take pleasure and confidence knowing this:  “Then said the Lord to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My Word to perform it’.” (Jer. 1:12/AMP).  Again, thank you for the fervent intercession, praying God’s Word for Nancy’s complete healing. 

The victory season is closer today!  HOLD FAST faithful intercessors!   I recently saw the last few minutes of a basketball season playoff game.  One team went up by 2 points with only 1/2 of a second remaining on the clock!  The victory song changed sides!  It looks pretty impossible; hardly enough time to catch the ball, set up, let alone have a decent shot!  Crazy!  Well, guess what?  The seemingly defeated team HELD FAST!   The 1/2 second proved time was not too short and not too long!  The same is true for Nancy, God’s time / timing will be all sufficient, but we must hold firm to His Word of promise!  “And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint,” (Gal. 6:9/AMP).

Yes, no matter how impossible things look, we HOLD FAST, ‘Looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our Faith,” (Heb. 12:2a)!  Thank you for your continued prayer coverage over Nancy during this season.  We will not let up, Lord, because we know You are not limited by time or anything else!

Last Sunday (9/13), Nancy was moved from ICU to PCU (Progressive Care Unit; just down the hallway from ICU).  The natural tendency is to assume there has been a dramatic or substantial increase in Nancy’s physical condition that would warrant such a move.  However, that is not the case.  For whatever reason(s), the Lord wanted Nancy out of the environment / atmosphere of the ICU.  Thus, PCU is less intensive care as a whole, but Nancy has additional ‘bells & whistles’ in her room to meet her needs.  God’s sovereign hand is very evident in this change of placement.  We never want to put God in a box!  There is a ‘step-by-step’ process the medical community calls progress and says, ‘this is good.’ And then there is God … “Then God saw everything that He made, and indeed it was very good!” (Gen. 1:31a/NKJV)

Nancy continues to breathe on her own, with some added oxygen to work in conjunction with her tracheostomy tube.  Movements continue to be minimal, such as some lip pursing and facial movements, and occasional faint hand squeezing. 

Probably much like you we have questions, as well as try to imagine what and when “Arise” and / or “Awaken” might look like.  Only the Lord can answer these concrete questions, but what I do know is that the Lord has given us an imagination.   An imagination consecrated unto Him is one of the places where He can birth images of what He is about to do.
     Having said that, the Lord has given Henry, myself, and many of you dreams, visions, images, pictures, scriptures, etc.  He is announcing His mighty works!  “For I’m going to do a brand new thing.  See I have already begun!  Don’t you see it?” (Is. 43:19a/TLB).   Additionally, all of these things the Lord is showing different people bear witness to the prophetic prayer declaration the Lord gave Henry early on in Nancy’s healing:  YOU ARE ALIVE; YOU SHALL THRIVE; YOU WILL BE MINISTERING FOR GOD!

I wanted to revisit this prophetic prayer declaration because we are looking for signs of something new the Lord is doing each day in Nancy.  And I started thinking …  Am I doing this in my own life? … looking for signs of the new things the Lord is doing in me; my own movements, or lack thereof?   Am I seeing, acknowledging, giving thanks for the smallest of movements in my own walk? We all want to see / experience the ‘big movement’ … the great awakening, but what about all the intricate details that the Lord is working on the inside of each one of us?   Those seemingly hidden places.  Yet those secret places are where the supernatural happens!  Carefully and skillfully shaping us from nothing to something.  God has already seen what I was created to be before I even came into being, like described in Psalms 139:15b & 16a.   We are looking for these little movements in Nancy’s healing, but are we aware of the slightest movement in our own walk with Jesus?  And a step beyond, are we thanking and praising God for the smallest details He has masterfully woven together in each of us?  “So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are His lovers who have been called to fulfill His designed purpose,” (Ro. 8:28/TPT). 

The Father’s divine purpose and heart is that not one be lost! (Jn. 6:39).  Nancy, having been to heaven before on a ‘day pass,’ has this same desire – not one be lost!  So, as we continue to pray for Nancy’s healing, let us continually press in and hold fast with the same momentum for all people; Kingdom mindsets! 

Your powerful and fervent prayers are pushing back the darkness and pulling in His Glory as He prepares His Bride!  It is worth repeating, as noted in the last PTH post (9/10/20):  The Lord keeps reminding Henry that there are others ‘like Nancy’… Nancy is not the only one. The Lord told Elijah He had 7,000 others reserved! (1 Ki. 19:18). So, keep pressing in with prayer and declaring the Word.  America, and all around the world, needs a Holy and healthy Bride!

Blessings to all!
