Praying for you linky.

I have been there many many times. Each time after a while a new thought would pop into my head on how to find relief.

Either someone on lymenet would post something that would ring a bell or I'd stumble upon something while searching for something totally different.

When I pray for inner peace, He provides it. I no longer fret over not getting well because as you see?

There is always hope in Him.
This is only our temporary home. I truly believe He has chosen us and really got our attention through illness.

Feel honored that He loves you so much that He chose you and through illness He brought you closer to Him.

He has a purpose for EVERYTHING. He went through more suffering for us than we could ever bare.

Lord make your love be felt by linky and give her inner peace knowing You are always with her and Your plan is always best.

Praying for you. God promises He will never leave us or forsake us. You may not feel like He is with you, but He is.

So much of what we "feel" is this nasty disease. It colors our life and makes us not think normally.

It will get better. In the meantime, just pray whatever you can. Sometimes I would just say "help me".

I will be praying for you....

I have been known to just say, "Please," over and over. I figure that God is powerful enough to know what I mean.

Praying for peace for you.

[hi] The Lord knows our thoughts,
the devil has not that capablity..
the Lord knows our heart and mind, he knows every hair on our heads, He has a plan, and it has been in works before we are born into flesh.
when we speak, its an action The Lord Favors..
Help Me Lord... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE..
any words we direct by our minds and heart are heard..
heaven isn't interested in our dirt (wrongs)-
Angels and Spirit in The Kingdom - only hear Good
(prayers and actions)..
Pick up the Word, and sharpen it as a sword..
the devil is less likely to attack a person with a sharpe double edge sword.. as to one that is in the closet rusty and bent...
linky, as Blessings are gathered in my basket like flowers, I most willingly share them with you... we are all in this together, and we are pulling for you this day and minute..
God, loves to Help and guide.
to lift and stand,
to carry you, hug you..
and give you His Gifts aboundantly.
when we give up..
God, makes us look up !!
We Thank God, to have you here, to share and sharpen His Word.. Your thoughts help us sort through life and follow His LIGHT..
Stronger We be from your share. [group hug] [group hug] [kiss]

I pray you are finding some comfort. We are all in this nightmare together and need to lift each other up.

There will be a day when one of us will need you and your words of encouragement. Keep the Faith.

Hi <<<<< lin,y 123'k >>>>>,

Hope things are going better for you!

Look up, and give it all up to the Lord.

One of the times I was in the hospital, I kept getting nauseous, I had to walk, and I was told to 'look up',literally, to help ease the nausea.

I had to walk, and have someone with me,to avoid a scar tissue build up. Finally I started to do better and got to go home.

I woke the next morning, to have to go to ER because of a seizure [anesthetic issues] they held a pillow over the incision site to keep the seizure from ripping my stitches.

But God, in His mercy saved me from having a very serious, serious disease.I had a tumor,and 3/4ths of the time this type of tumor is cancerous. Mine was benign.

That was back in the late 80's. I don't believe the Lord rescued me from that,just to let me fail and falter now. even with all that is going on w/us.

Linky, please don't give up dear one! Just keep lifting it all to the Lord. We'll continue to pray. And God made our pets...He cares for them too.

Keep venting... it will help!!!

Jus' Silverwolfi here prayin'

- Don't ask what else can go wrong... keep looking up when you are overwhelmed. TxCoord and I are in an unnerving situation right now...

OOps, I think the words jump out of sequence ...aarrghhh ,when I'm not looking. Things are a bit odd right now...but I am believing for God's peace and safety for us,and for you!!!

Glad you stopped back in Linky123.

The people on this site are so supportive.......it helps me to visit just so I KNOW I'M NOT ALONE.

Not sure if this helps, but when I feel so low, I call my best friend and just chat. Not about problems, not about pains. I ask how her day was and whoooossshhh, before you know it, she is telling me stories and nonsensical stuff and I think to myself, be WITH HER right now.

Eventually, I laugh a little....but even that little thing helps. Prayer as well as it helps so many.

Just know, you are not alone and that we care and have walked in your footsteps. {hugs}

I am praying for you, linky.

Sorry I did not see your post sooner.

I read this quote in the book, "Miracles" by Tim Stafford, where he was talking about suffering:

"What we know is that God is good and brings good out of evil. He may do it through miraculous deliverance, but he may do it through transformation of character that occurs when we suffer.

Sometimes God shows his goodness by piling on benefits for all to see. Other times he does it by letting us suffer-as Jesus himself suffered-in order that others might see the power of God in our faithful endurance."

Linky...

I also had given up all hope. Please read my "success story" under that heading in this forum.

I received my miracle, and since you never know when yours will come, you must gather your will and energy and hang on and wait for it. Your job is simply to not give up, no matter what, and be open to possibilities that you haven't tried.

People say you must believe in success for it to happen...but I was WAY beyond this point...I had experienced too much severe suffering and too many disappointments. All I can credit myself with is that I didn't end it...and I continued to look for someone who had success (so I could follow their advice)...which I finally found after 8 long years of searching.

If you would like to know more after you read my story, please PM me and I will help you any way I can...
