James 5:14 (NIV)
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.
The Apostle James tells us if there is anyone who is sick that we should call the leaders of the church together, praying for them and anointing them with holy oil in the name of the Lord.
Longtime Atlanta radio personality Jenn Hobby received devastating news on Saturday.
"August 13, 2016," Hobby said on Facebook. "It is the day that Reese and our family started to beat cancer."
The day that forever changed our world.
It is the day that Reese and our family started to beat cancer.
For the last two weeks, we�ve been in and out of the emergency room and doctors� offices chasing the origin of numerous symptoms. We knew something wasn�t right with our gregarious 10-month old; we just didn�t have any answers.
Saturday morning, Reese had an MRI of her pelvic region. The initial scan would reveal a large mass. One hour after our lil angel went back for a routine MRI, the doctor would sit knee to knee with us and tell us Reese has cancer.
We were immediately admitted to Children�s Healthcare of Atlanta. As we walked on to this highly specialized cancer unit at arguably one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country, we felt comforted by the incredible staff and facility yet terrified by the reality of our circumstances. In an instant, we became part of a new family that shared one common theme � we are the chosen ones to beat cancer.
We are so grateful to have such an incredible network of family and friends. The love and support Reese and our family feel is beyond words. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and lifted our baby up in prayer. Please keep going.
She is strong and a fighter�We are going to beat this. Reese is going to be healthy again soon. We are surrounding her with love and light and laughter.
With determination and love, Jenn and Grant
Luke 18:15-17 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, �Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.�
Let us all pray for Reese, Jenn, her husband Grant, her other daughter Lauren and the rest of the family. May the Lord touch Reese with His healing hands and give the doctors the wisdom to know what to do.
