It is indeed a blessing for me when the Lord sees fit to give me enough energy to communicate directly with you...my family, friends...church body on Maui and so many wonderful hearts pouring out love, hope & strength, ...other churches, ohana groups...literally thousands who have poured out constant, non stop prayer and support...I am staggered when I realize the love of God, the compassion of human hearts that have the grand privilege and capability of reflecting such beauty in a world filled with so much suffering and pain. This process we are witnessing speaks so highly of the gift the creator has endowed each of us with in very unique, individual and special ways. I guess that is the main thing God has impressed on my heart to offer you today. From a place of complete brokenness and with a humble and contrite heart and spirit, I offer this to you today. I feel He (the creator of all that is good, right, pure, lovely...the things our spirits love to cling to...eternally valuable things...things worth fighting for in life against the harshness of the world )...I offer the eye of God for you today. The way God sees you. I was awaken by the early dawn outside my 12x12 cubicle which could be viewed as a little prison or it can be what it has become...a place of infinite value to me...a place that opens up a whole universe of revelation because I am with the creator of the universe and He is my teacher and guide. Those of you who know His touch in the dark places of life know what I am expressing. We are never a prisoner in a dark place as long as we have the light of Him who dispels the darkness, even in death He holds our victory...for His life has swallowed up death and loneliness and separation and brings us life everlasting. But for today, God tells me how much He loves you, how valuable you are to Him, regardless of what anyone thinks or says...you are His precious one. As I was saying, at dawn I awoke and I heard the birds singing their songs...really a song of praise...we are alive, we reflect the beauty of an intricate, unfathomably creative creator and yet as beautiful as the moment was I was reminded of how Jesus looked to the little birds and how the Father took care of them and then He turned to the hurting, the weak, the helpless, the lost, the innocent that so often just get trampled in life...He turned to those looking for significance and fulfilment outside of a world that is so often shallow, superficial...and baits things to appear to be good that in the end only bring disaster...the manifesting of God in flesh points to the little birds, as beautiful as they are and tells the thirsty, those hungering for meaning and purpose to their lives "do you not know how much more valuable you are to the Father than these"...and God demonstrates your value by giving the gift of His Son...His life for ours that we may enjoy that deep, rich, real fulfilling relationship that we were created for in the first place forever. So lift your head up today dear one, you are His prize, His joy, His love forever...when you hear the birds sing early in the morning it His heart singing to you His love song. Our job is simply to respond to His love song with all our hearts, do good in a dark world and as the Lord says your light will shine before men bringing glory to your Father in heaven. Every outpouring of your love, your prayers and your support for me and my family shines forth like the brilliance of the noon day sun...people see it, they feel it, they experience it...so rise little flock and bring forth your song of praise to His magnificence and know that the magnificent one desires to shower you with His love today. You are His prize possession!

We wait and pray together for the miracle from God. As a direct result of your prayers I have been spared of infection, also any heavy side effects of the last chemo. You have provided for me the great blessing of my wife by my side through this all...an indescribable gift. God is with me...you are with me...it is good. I pray your spirit has been lifted today as you see yourself through God's eyes.

Love to all and I am forever indebted to your love, care and compassion:)

Hello Kit,

My Granddaughter Sasha and I are here at my home and we wanted to send our love to you today. Of course we send our love everyday and pray with everyone else as God is touching our lives your life and everyone else who journeys along with you and your precious Ohana.

I am comming to Oahu tomorrow to watch my Great-Grandson play baseball in the all State championship tournament and during my time on Oahu, (which will be till Sunday), I will call to find out if it would be possible for a me to have a moment to visit with you. I will totally understand if it doesn't happen for we know it is Gods spirit that keeps us connected and this is an ongoing blessing.

Much Love,
Lucy & Sasha

Kit what a timely word. I just got off the phone to our dear friend Mike Kearns who just lost his wife to cancer. He is finding it very hard to cope and I am going to send him this wonderful encouraging word that I know is going to lift him up so much. Thank you for your continued desire to allow God to use you to strengthen, love, encourage and support others. HE is awesome and amazing and moving through you!

Hi Kit. It's Greg & Linda Hoover on the Big Island. (and Holly 6yrs old,& Jack 2yrs old now)

Greg is working on Maui this week and heard about what's going on with you from Mike Knowles whom he's working with. What a shock.

I was up till 1 a.m. last night reading throught the blog from the beginning. What an encouragement and blessing everyone, including you, are.

We sure love you guys and will get the Big Island praying for you too. I'm on the MOPS steering team here...our group represents 5 churches, so add those to the prayer warriors!

What comes to mind about you is that packed into your life, with your zeal, energy, and passion, you've already lived about ten (no make that 100)lives worth of apologetics/witnessing/teaching/planting. Here's to another 100.:)

Love to you and your whole family. Thanks for writing. I'll send some pictures.

Love, Linda

And settle into my heart with peace.For this I give praise to the Father and warm thanks to you....Still praying

Lisa said...

WOW.

That touched my heart...I am printing your message out and am going to share it with my therapy group next week. Since we are a group of women who have been abused (emotional, physical, sexual) growing up, we need to hear these messages over and over again so we can get to a point where we stop second-guessing His love for us.

And to get that message from you--you who have gone through so much...I'm amazed (and thrilled) that you had the energy to share with us today. You better believe I will continue to pray for your freedome from fevers and blast cells.

Thank you, Kit.

The love vessel just keeps on pouring...

Barb & I have devotions every morning with our parents. While reading your blog this morning, my Dad was looking up this scripture which seemed appropriate.

Rom. 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Rom. 8:36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
Rom. 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Rom. 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
Rom. 8:39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Your priorities are effecting ours. We anticipate your thoughts in your words and pray continually for your health and God’s blessings on your family and close support.

Dear Kit~
Thank you so much for the last few messages that you've left for us- your flock, your family and friends.
So beautiful a gift to us are the heartfelt, reflective and wise words that challenge us to look past the trials of everyday, and truly love one another the way that He loves us!
Thank you for the reminder of how awesome and powerful (and personal)His love is to each and every one of us.
I am again reminded to surrender, to give it all up to Him, and to let Him love me.
I had a dream about you Kit (someday I will tell you about it) and it was so real and wonderful to see you, talk to you, and sense your true spirit stronger than ever.
I love you uncle Kit!
Kathie

Kit, isn't it amazing how close we can be with God in times of trials...and how we can feel His heartbeat and see through His eyes...

Thank you Kit for sharing with us these encouraging words. You are in our Father's embrace right now ... rest in His love and comfort as we continue to await the miracle on the 12th.

Once again I find myself longing to hear your words. They are so profound and help guide my way through the day. I feel as if I have a daily message through your journey. I have been in constant prayer for you and your family, you are such an inspiration for your faith. I have been printing your words for my daughter, Angie, to read with hopes she will find a way to open the door to God. She knows He is there but has so far to go. She is dealing with a cancerous brain tumor. Another day, another victory for your recovery. Your friend in Christ

Dear Dr. Lauer:
Your words remind me of the lilies of the field and the birds who sing
A robin feathering his nest
Has very little time to rest
While gathering his bits of twine and twig.
Though quite intent in his pursuit
he has a merry tune to toot
He knows a song will move the job along. Get well soon.
