If you want me to!

The song link at the bottom of this post says it ALL!

We will NEVER understand why we go through what we do but I know without a doubt that when we see Jesus face to face we will know that it was worth it ALL!

May we(I) NEVER forget that no matter if it is night or day in this journey in my life, that there was one dark hour that Jesus spent on earth and a bright resurection that makes this thing called life worth it all.

Worship with the song! Allow yourself to get lost in the words! Allow yourself to cry if you need to. Make this song part of your New Years Resolution! For I will never leave your nor forsake you says the Lord! I am with you ALWAYS!

I can't fix it for you

A LOT has been going on in my life. SO MUCH that I didn't know it was affecting me the way it has been.

Last Monday I woke up with my right arm sore. I thought that I slept on it wrong. Tuesday and Wednesday it was no better so I thought that I had a pinched nerve. On Thursday morning I saw blisters on my arm which, by going to the doctor on Friday, ended up being Shingles.

Shingles is brought on by stress and normally develops because your nervous system is being attacked. These past few months have been busy but it's not just with the things that I have posted about. (i.e. moving, new baby, etc.) MANY other things are going on in our lives and I guess I was trying to be "Mr. Fix it all" and it has finally taken a toll on me.

I have heard of worse cases of Shingles so I can say that mine is not as bad as others. I would not wish them on anyone because they are uncomfortable.

There is a bible verse that keeps coming to my mind since the development of these Shingles. It's the one that says,(paraphrasing) "throwing off everything that hinders and running the race that I might receive the prize (Jesus)." Things in life can run you down! People can run you down!

Praying for one another and lifting each other up in prayer is needed but we(I) must realize that I can't fix it for you.

So on that note I end with, "Father, forgive me for allowing my circumstances and the circumstances of others weigh be down to the point that it was affecting me physically. Take the cares and burdens that I have and that loved ones have and touch them and bring them into alignment with your will. Lord I know that it is not by might, nor by power, but by YOUR Spirit! I thank you for the healing that you are bringing to my body and that these Shingles will never be a factor again. In Jesus name, Amen!"
