Soli Deo Gloria

These last few weeks have been full of ups and downs. Full of praising God and relying solely on His grace and strength.

Two weeks ago we found out I was pregnant, again, this would make #4. We just found out yesterday though that it will not end in the way we had been hoped. Once again my body is failing me. And I don't know why.

As frustrating as this is I just keep thinking....God is doing something. God is at work. He is on the move. I am not left hopeless instead I look to him anxiously to see what great thing He is going to do through all of this.

As I left the doctors office on Monday I just kept thinking Soli Deo Gloria, Soli Deo Gloria I heard it in a sermon once and have never forgotten it. It is Latin for to God alone be the glory. And I know that He will be glorified through this!

I am coveting your prayers friends and encouraging words.

My flesh and heart fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:26


  1. i'm so sorry, ness. the pain is real and your worship to God is evident through it. i will be praying for your heart to continue to praise the Lord...for He is constant.


  2. Your faith and strength are such wonderful examples to myself and others. You and your family will be in my continued thoughts and prayers.

  3. I'm praying for you....and so sad alongside you...your faith is a beautiful thing, I love that that latin verse is what came to you in such a devestating moment. Your pain is a powerful testimony of keeping focused on what is true.

  4. I love the verse that you are clinging to! I will continue to lift you up in prayer. To God be the glory - Amen!

  5. oh sweetie, i'm SO sorry to hear about this! my heart aches with you. i will be praying for you and dave. you are an amazing example for me. love you!

  6. Praying for you Jenessa. God is indeed glorified by your dependence upon Him and I am so humbled by your heart and openness.

  7. Thinking of you Ness...
