September 24 10:32 AM

I just went back to the bed and Micah was still looking pleased and I talked to him and he smiled with dimples more than once!  

God is doing something, pray, Micah is crying.


  1. Tina, Read the Job passage I just sent! Micah's tears are for me the "scent of water!"

    I am praying, Tina!!!

  2. Tina and Thomas,

    We are all praying so hard. We want Micah to be healed. Patience it the hardest when our children are involved. My favorite verse: "Be Still and know that I am God", Ps.46:10. Waiting has got to be the hardest part. I am praying for you both and for your sweet son. Our God is the God of circumstances, and you have bathed Micah in His love. You are wonderful parents. Thank you for keeping us updated. We are only a phone call away if you need anything.

  3. good morning my dear friends. i am thrilled to hear that micah is showing some emotion. we continue to pray and the family gathers for the daily updates. love to all. amber g

  4. We Praise the Lord for these dimple smiles and his precious little tears! We are continually praying. Nathan said to tell Micah that he misses their long phone talks about Bionicles and telling jokes, he cannot wait till they can do it again.
    We love you,
    Bruce & Paige

  5. Thank you Lord Jesus! We continue to thank and praise Jesus for His healing. Continue to hold on in faith that the healing that Jesus has started in Micah will be completed. We prayed for Micah.

  6. Tina and Thomas, God is GREAT!! It is good to read that Micah is smiling and that little by little improvement is manifested.

    I just want to leave you some scriptures to believe and declare. Prayer is the powerful thing that God gave us and commanded we as children of Him do, but God gave us our tongue too, and with it, we speak life or death. In Proverbs 18:21 it also tells us that we indulge in what we speak. What you and your family speak in this situation will happen. All that is required is belief and what you say will appear. Jesus told us the same in Mark 11:23. I encourage you to speak to that mountain, speak to Micah what you want to happen, and not just what you want, but what WILL happen with God.Do not be swayed by what you see or what you feel, but what you know with God will happen. Confess the promise of God over Micah, don't just pray them and watch "Daddy God" move as He promised He would in Romans 8:28. God gave Abraham His kind of faith (Romans 4:17) to call those things that be not as though they were, to call nonexistent/dead things into life. So don't doubt, just know that it may look as if Micah's situation is permanent but God said look at it as temporary (2 Cor 4:18) for the things that are unseen are permanent and everlasting. What is everlasting here? Well...that Micah is healed (Isa 53:5), Micah is leaving the hospital, Micah is restored to the way he was but even better than what he was before this trial happened (Joel 2:25-27).

    The Bivins Family loves you all and we are declaring and believing God in this moment that will end in GREAT pleasure. :)

  7. Yeah! We pray without ceasing! We are so excited you finally saw those dimples. We love you all so much.

  8. that's the news we've waited for...tears and smiles all in one morning! it's amazing how God moves...we love you, and will pray for micah and the rest of the family every time we think of you.

  9. GOD IS GOOD! Thank-you JESUS!

  10. How PRECIOUS those dimples are!!!!!!!! God can reveal Himself in the grandest ways! May He continue to work His will through Micah's body.

    The rest of your children were an absolute blessing for us last night. We sang what Daniel calls the "Hey, ho" song as Samuel played the music for us. All of your children are absolute blessings, and we enjoyed their visit. I offered to bring over some calculus, physics or chemistry homework for them while they were visiting Grandma & Grandpa, but Abigail was satisfied with having already completed chemistry! : ) Even your most shy children declined the offer for additional homework! Hmmmm. . . Now I know how to get them to talk! : )

    We love you all, and we will continue to pray for God's complete healing of Micah. "To God be the glory. Great things he has done!"

  11. This is fantastic news! I will be praying that God calms his fears and the progress will continue. Please let me know if you need anything. We are just a few miles away and can run anything you need right to you!

  12. Tina and Thomas, we are praying so very hard for you and your family. I know that God is Faithful and he will pull you guys through this completely healed and whole. If you need anything please let us know.

  13. Thrilled to hear of those handsome dimples--and even the tears. Truly the Lord is at work! We rejoice with you!--The Hartigs

  14. Praise God!

    Tina, last night as I went to sleep and then this morning during my prayer time, I specifically asked God to give you at least one little miracle today; something that you would know was from Him. Isn't it just like God to give you several...several beautiful smiles! I'm so very happy for you! I pray for Micah and for your family all the time. Thank you for keeping us posted.

    Love, Chris Veteto

  15. I am prasing God for Micah's smile and tears. I will continue to pray for Micah and his healing. I pray for all of you each day that God continues to give you strength and wisdom. Blessings to you.
    Love in Christ, Sally in Illinois

  16. With God "ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE"!!!! Never underestimate God's miracle working power!!!! We are praising Him for the miracle He is working in Micah right now and for all the lives that will be touched. Many around you will come to realize that the Bible is not just a "story book" filled with "fables" but instead IT IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD!!! What Satan intended for evil, God will use to bring many into His kingdom through Micah, your family and especially the two of you. We love you, miss you, and are praying for a complete and miraculous recovery; one in which NO ONE can deny that GOD IS REAL, HE DOES LISTEN TO THOSE CRYING OUT TO HIM, AND HE DOES ANSWER PRAYERS!!!

    Love you guys,


  17. We are so Greatful for every step of progress!
    Beautiful smiles and tears, great signs!
    Our God is still in the Miracle business!

    Still praying,
    Jeff and Tammy

  18. Praise Jesus, I don't even have the words to describe the joy I feel at this news. I'm praying with all I have. Tina I remember you saying that you just wanted to see your boy smile. How awesome !! Continue with the healing miracles Father God. Tony & Tina

  19. Tina --
    a few post back you said you would love to see your son smile, and look at him now!!!
    We are always praying, love to you --

  20. I started crying when I read that Micah smiled today. How amazingly wonderful!!! We pray every night for Micah's body to heal completely. May God continue to bless you with His miracles, heal your baby (I don't care how old they are. They're still our babies.) and refresh your bodies and souls!
    Rejoicing for you!
    Hope Cooper

  21. Tina, I rejoice at every little sign of progress. Love, Robert Morris

  22. I was about to sign off for the night when I realized I hadn't checked on Micah today. Not that I hadn't prayed for him, but I had not had the opportunity to check the blog. I'm so glad God reminded me to check. This is wonderfully amazing...just so like God... news! How many times had you said, Tina, that you wanted to see his smile. Our God is faithful. Last night at church, I was discussing with our 4th - 6th graders the 23rd Psalm. The first verse is such a comfort..."The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want". If the psalmist stopped there in that chapter, those words are all we need. Praising God with you and continuing to pray for a full recovery. Let us know if you need anything.


  23. Tina and Thomas, This was my devotional this morning and wanted to share. I am excited that Micah is responding some. GOD CAN AND WILL work a MIRACALE

    POUR ALL OF YOUR ENERGY into trusting Me. It is through trust that you stay connected to Me, aware of My Presence. Every step on your life-journey can be a step of faith. Baby steps of trust are simple for you; you can take them with almost unconscious ease. Giant steps are another matter altogether: Leaping across chasms in semi-darkness, scaling cliffs of uncertainty, trudging through the valley of the shadow of death. These feats require sheer concentration, as well as utter commitment to Me.
    Each of My children is a unique blend of temperament, giftedness, and life experiences. Something that is a baby step for you may be a giant step for another person, and vice versa. Only I know the difficulty or ease of each segment of your journey. Beware of trying to impress others by acting as if your giant steps are only baby ones. Do not judge others who hesitate, in trembling fear, before an act that would be easy for you. If each of My children would seek to please me above all else, fear of others’ judgments would vanish, as would attempts to impress others. Focus your attention on the path just ahead of you and on the ONE who never leaves your side. PSALM 23:4 MATTHEW 7: 1 – 2 PROVERBS 29:25 Sharon Sargent Pettit

  24. How wonderful!!! Who is like our God!? Truly nothing is impossible for Him. My kids and I are praying for Micah daily. Especially Brandon (Daniel's age), he remembers him from Villagefest and really holds Micah in his heart. We love you guys.

  25. God is AWESOME! I can't wait to share the news with others. We are still praying for total healing and I know GOD answers prayers. So it's like Thomas said so what r we worried about I'll never forget Thomas's word that day. We're here if ya'll need anything just ask.

  26. Tina and Thomas and Family, please know that we stand in the gap with and for you for God's touch on Micah and healing. Praise God for your faith and testimony in the midst of the storm and you will never know how many have been touched this side of Glory! What a Mighty God we serve!!! Love and prayers as we wait upon Our Lord. Susan Smith

  27. Oh Thomas & Tina,
    What great news !!SMILING!! How much we take for granted daily. I continue to pray! Thank you for keeping us posted on what God is doing. It's been a blessing to me. We rejoice with you.
