Answered Prayers

Today, our God answered the countless prayers for our sweet boy. With our eyes flooded with tears & loving arms holding him close, today Isaac Jordan Leino went home to Jesus. At 5:10p, God healed our son & gave him a new body, free of defects, tubes, & alarms. While our heavy hearts grieve the loss of our precious child, our spirits find peace & hope knowing he now stands face to face with our Savior, worshipping in His presence. What a bittersweet joy is found in trusting him into the arms of Jesus.

Details will come as we have them regarding the events to follow. We'll never be able to thank you all enough for standing with us through this journey.

Mommy & Daddy love you, Sweet Isaac. Though we miss you more than words can say, we'll see you soon.

I am sorry for our lose here on earth but I smile as I think of the angels rejoicing in Heaven as Isaac is now worshiping with them! Your family has been an incredible testament to what it means to have faith in God and His will. I know that He has things in store for you that you can not fathom. For now, take time to grieve, mourn and rejoice in the life that Isaac led. May the Holy Spirit guide you and hold you through this time! Thank you for sharing and being transparent with the world. Through that transparency, we have grown and learned what it means to trust Him fully. Thank you and God Bless!

To Patience and Jordan,
Tears filled in my eyes the moment I heard that Precious Isaac had passed. I want to thank you for allowing me to take care of Isaac for the past few months. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know that now Isaac will be away from all the vents and tubes. I would like to attend the funeral when arrangements are made, If I can do anything to help you please let me know. I will miss Isaac so much and regret that I didn't get to say goodbye!

Isaac’s time on this earth united thousands of people from around the world. He led people to God through prayer, and he touched all our hearts. We may never know the number of lives Isaac impacted, but we can rest assured that he served God’s purpose. If we all could make that claim, this world would be a better place to live. Our God is an awesome God and now he has an awesome child to share heaven with. Jordan & Patience I want to thank you for allowing us to share in your son’s life. He made smile, he made us cry but most of all he made us trust and have faith in God. What better legacy could anyone have? Our prayers are with you!

In Christ

We are so sorry for the loss of your son, Isaac. He is now without pain and at peace with God. We lost a daughter 23 years ago and we still remember that day as if it was yesterday. You do get over the pain, but the memories stay with you forever, they do fade some. The love for that child never fades. God will carry you through the tough times ahead and there will be many. It will take quite a while to get over your loss. I will keep you in my prayers hoping your grief period will not be too long. May God be with you.

Patience and Jordan,
Through flowing tears, I'm writing this message. This song on my lips all day. I've followed your blog from the beginning and endlessly been amazed and challenged by your faith and trust on this journey. I am at a loss for words as I grieve with you over little Isaac. Know that your testimony during this journey has done more than inspire, encourage, and bring people together. As I, and I'm sure countless others, have read your blog and been in prayer over the past year,I've been forever changed. It's a shame that it takes something like this for us to realize that we should walk away changed by a true encounter with the living God. As you grieve and yet rejoice in knowing Isaac is in the arms of his Maker, be encouraged in knowing that the Lord has used you to impact the masses. Your example has compelled me to a more intimate relationship with my Maker! You will continue to be in our prayers.
Father,
Thank you for placing Patience, Jordan, and Isaac in our lives fr such a time as this. Through them, we have been shown a glimpse of your awesome love for your children. Only you know what this family needs now. Do as only you can do. You are the Mender of broken hearts. Lord, comfort and heal their hearts. Cover them in your love.
Amen!

As we saw you singing Saturday night our hearts were truely touched by you. As the tears rolled down our faces we felt the closeness of our Lord Jesus Christ in the room with us. You and Jordan have set an amazing example to others and ourselves that even through the storms of life God will never forsake you.

As we close our eyes we can see little Isaac jumping onto Jesus' lap looking down at you two and telling him with admiration what amazing parents you two are.

Jordan and Patience,

With tears streaming down my face, I praise the Lord for all the mighty works that He has accomplished through your lives and through Isaac's life. As I read the comments here, they only begin to explain all of the lives that have been saved and changed by Isaac's life and by your faith and legacy.

As the Lord looks down on you from heaven while holding your precious child in His hands, I know that He is well pleased with you. He is so proud of you. He grieves with you, and He also rejoices with you. Isaac has fought the good fight of faith and finished well, but so have you.

As you continue to walk out the road ahead of you, know that the Lord will hold you in his arms every moment. He holds you in the very same arms that hold your precious son. You're all together now and forever. May you rest in the Lord now and always. He loves you so very much.

Although I am saddened by your news, I can't help but smile at the picture I have in my head right now. It is Isaac, with his beautiful big eyes even bigger as he looks around heaven seeing things he never has, feeling a way he's never known. The one thing that isn't new for him is the love he feels. You two loved him with the love of God. I think our Father is very proud of you.

Throughout your journey, I could not help but ask God why He would choose such an amazing, faithful family to have this kind of pain. Then I was reminded of Joseph and Mary. They were two very faithful servants who did not "deserve" the pain they felt when Jesus died. They did, however, deserve the joy of their special child. God knew he could trust them with His son. I think it's a similar situation for you. God saw your faithfulness and knew that you deserved the joy that Isaac would bring. He also knew that he could trust you with his story.
Thank you for sharing your story. Isaac is now healed, and through his story, many other's souls have been healed.

I thank the Lord God for the time we had with sweet Isaac, short as it was. He will never be forgotten because his life touched so many others, including strangers like me. Jordan and Patience, you are truly salt and light on this earth. Thank you for sharing yourselves, your baby, your journey, and your faith with us all. Although it seems as if it will be forever before you hold Issac again, it will seem only a second has passed when it happens.

Jordan & Patience,
Our heart goes out to you both and your families. Issac was such a blessing from GOD brought into your arms for a short time. However, his memory will last a lifetime. Your faithfulness through all of this is amazing and a true testimony of GOD's love. We prayed that GOD would allow Isaac to come home with you if even for a short while and he answered this prayer. We prayed that GOD would bring peace to your "sweet boy" Issac and he did. We pray now that GOD continue to bring you peace and comfort during this time of separation.

His word says my strength is made perfect in your weakness... Your faith through your journey has encouraged me. I read through your Incredible faith journey, and it caused me to repent for being so selfish and taking God's grace and mercy for granted. God's sweet baby Issac will touch many lives as he did mine. Although I never had the opportunity of meeting him God has used him to bring attention to my selfish ways. May the peace of God comfort you during this time and know that Sweet Baby Issac did not live in vain. To God be all the glory for the great things he has done.

We were really sad at the thought of losing precious little Isaac and want to give you Jordan and Patience a big long warm Christian hug and kiss. It is hard to understand but we trust God ... as Jesus said to Mary and Martha (at the time of the passing of Lazarus)... "it is for God's glory, so that God's Son may be glorified through it ... Jn 11:4 ...

Jordan and Patience ... you have been a tremendous encouragement to us as we have observed you through this testing time. The way you have kept your poise and have continued to minister to us through the music ministry at C3 undaunted, with the love of Jesus streaming through your countenances has been inspiring and powerful...

Dancing With God

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word. I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.

When two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement doesn't flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.

When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music. One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.

It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other.

My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.

When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i". "God", "u" and "i" dance." God, you, and I dance.

As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust that I would get guidance about my life. Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's Blessings and mercies be upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God as God abides in you. Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.

You have gone through the Refining Fires with grace and strength, that is marvelous to witness. Your son shared that strength. He has done a wonderful service for our Lord. He has reached the perfection and home we all long for. Listen as Jesus whispers loving things to you and know you too have His and our deepest appreciation for handling the journey well. You are the Good and Faithful servant we all should strive to be. Thanks for being our shepherd. God expects much but also gives much in return. May that day come to you soon.

In Him who only can understand your pain, Dixie.
