Real Faith Quotes From Amy

Aren't these so encouraging?!

"Somewhere in the midst of all of the emotions I had an overwhelming sense of peace. Ever since the Urgent Care doctor had called, the song "Blessed be Your Name" had been running through my head. "Blessed be Your name, when the path's marked with suffering, though there's pain in the offering, blessed be Your name." I told Brandon, "The Lord gives, and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord." In the midst of everything known and yet unknown, all I could know is that He had me. I wasn't anywhere I wasn't supposed to be, this was the path I had been called to, and He wouldn't give me more than I could bear."-Amy Wilhoite July 3rd blog post-day after learning of her diagnosis Leukemia

"I am so thankful for my God and for the peace He has given me for this trial. I think if I were reading this that I'd have a hard time believing the person. I never thought I'd be able to stand anything like this. But I can't, it's God, and it's not about how much faith I have, it's about HOW MUCH GRACE He has. I pray that you may all know Him as I do. I am so grateful that He loves me enough to put me through this, to grant me the privilege of a deeper knowledge of Him than I ever would have had otherwise. He is SO good to me."

" 'God's mercies are new every morning because each day has enough mercy in it only for that day. This is why we tend to despair when we think that we may have to bear tomorrow's load on today's resources. God wants us to know that we won't. Today's mercies are for today's troubles. Tomorrow's mercies are for tomorrow's troubles.--John Piper (A Godward Life, pg. 26) (I found this quote on Google, so I'm not perfectly certain of the authenticity of the source -- said what I wanted to say, though.)" Amy Wilhoite-Sat, Aug 4th blog entry-just a few weeks before her heavenly flight.

Again, evidence of a Loving Heavenly Father who held her in His hand.

Her comments reminded of the book "Stepping Heavenward" and how the main character felt. It's good to hear it from a real person. What an amazing testimony Amy's life has been and will be to so many people.

I have read her blog off and on. It never ceased to amaze me. She had such strong faith. What an encouragement her life, and death has been to so many. I started to post about her the other day, and the words and thoughts just couldn't come together. You did a great job.

Have a blessed day.

I just found your blog today via "A ote From Theresa". I'm so glad I did! I plan on many returnes.

I only became familiar with Amy W. recently, after her graduation to heaven. She sounds like someone I would have loved to know!

God bless.

I cried as I read her husband's post of her passing to Bruce. God is so good to His children, especially in their passing. As we leave this world of pain and enter into His presence. I know that Amy is worshipping her King, her Father, her Friend as never before. That she is in perfect peace and perfect health, waiting for her loved ones to meet her. How precious is the death of the child of God!

I know, I just couldn't believe it either, unless I hadn't seen so many faith warriers in my midst at my church, and had God touch me and my husband, my child, so many times and in such a way that we knew IT WAS GOD~ without a doubt!!
Isn't this SO GOOD of God; He knows us,cares for us, like a tending of His flock~ when one of us stumbles, He rushes to us to comfort, with songs of faith and words of praise. He put a new song, a song of praise, in Amy's mouth. Praise the Lord! Thank You, Lord!!!
