No Hope But Him

Last night while I was sitting in the Firehouse prayer room listening to the worship team sing the line, "All my hope is in you," Distressed, I thought, "Lord...outside of you, I have no hope right now. I am hopeless without you and helpless before you." I then thought back to how I held Mr. Boy skin-to-skin for the first time yesterday and how his little life was so helpless and precious in my arms.  I then saw an image of myself cradled on the Lord's chest, helpless in His arms yet so warm, cozy and safe and then I heard the words, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." With an overwhelming peace I thought that maybe David and I are exactly where we are supposed to be, and the best place to be: hopeless without Him and helpless before Him but resting in His arms and trusting Him as our loving Father. 

The "skin to skin" time is also called "kangaroo time".  It is suppose to be one of the best things for Mr.Boy's development. How cool is that. :)


  1. I love what you wrote tonight! If I can find it, I have a wonderful true story re: the very same would love it. I'll email it to you when I locate it. It is truly a miracle that you are even able to have "kangaroo time" with Asher right now, that he can be out of his "crib", and that he can breathe on his own. Our God is truly a God of miracles!

  2. Kassy, Asher is so handsome! Absolutely beautiful baby! you are so lucky and blessed. You look beautiful as always, you have the gorgeous mother glow. You are so strong, you are someone that I look up to. Your words of wisdom really help me look at things in a different way. I love you, Dave, and Asher so very much! I can't wait to meet this miracle. My family and I are always here for you. We are keeping you and your family in our prayers.

  3. Ah Kas and Dave... it seems that you have had a great weight to carry over the last few months and that your faith has grown tremendously. Brenton and I respect you greatly, and we are so very excited for your new little guy, Asher. Sorry we've been out of touch and somewhat out of the loop. Know we are thinking of you and will continue to pray that Asher grows to be a strong, godly man. We love you!

  4. You are a precious couple, content & obedient to the Lord, patiently watching his hand move in your life. Thank you, Jesus, for Asher and for parents like Dave & Kassy who have learned to love because you first loved us.

    Asher is adorable! My prayers continue daily. What a blessing to be able to hold Asher and BOND. Love it!

    Love you both,

  5. When I read this I teared up because earlier as Melanie shared the news with me, one of my first thoughts was Kassy and Dave are a couple trying to live out God's will and that if any family could handle this,it would be you two because of your love and dedication for Christ. I am sure it feels like you are being tested, stretched, and more but God is so faithful and will uphold your family through it all.
