Well i tell ya what it has been a LONG haul! I started this thread back in December 2012! Can you believe it? I have had a few people from the team ask me how I have been doing, and wanting an update. I have been dragging my feet partly because I did not have much to tell, and also, to tell you the truth I am sick of sharing my sob story with so many people who ask, you know what I mean? Not only am I sounding like a broken record, I kinda just want to escape it in a way, and repeating details, or the latest news, well it just hurts sometimes, especially now when things are taking so long.

I will be truthful and tell you I am becoming weary. I have started to become weak. emoticon I just need and want this TO END!

Let me catch you up to date. Back in the beginning of May I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. My colonoscopy was fine. Through the procedure of an eendoscopy inflammation was found. The doctor took a biopsy of my stomach. Before the procedure I explained to the doctor that I have been in server unbearable pain for the last 5 months. After the procedure the doctor talked to my husband and asked him what had caused me to be in so much pain. My husband told him that it all started with a bad cold back in December. He told him that I took two doses of antibiotics. Then he explained to the doctor that after which I had Pleurisy, and then a month later had a gallbladder surgery. After which I still had the same symptoms and pain. He continued to explain that at that point we felt that there was something else which was causing me to be ill. The doctor explained to my husband that when you take antibiotics it removes both GOOD and BAD bacteria. He said that sometimes after a person has taken an antibiotic a they can become sick. after my procedures the doctor gave my husband some papers, In some of these papers the doctor wrote,"possible diagnose- Gastritis".

I have had a bunch of frustration from the doctors office, not my primary care doctor, but the doctor's office which I had the two above mentioned procedures completed. When someone is suffering so badly it just makes a bad situation worse when you have to deal with people who you just want to yell at due to their stupidly, and lack of professionalism. I am not going to get into all of it, mainly because it is not worth repeating, it is only the devil trying to wear me down, but I will tell you this: His nurse had the nerve to tell me there was nothing wrong with me on the phone although she had never examined me & the doctor had written possible Gastritis, I was told I had nothing wrong with me... well just let me put it this way, I had a few chosen words for her! But mind you, I was completely kind in what I said.. just extremely direct.

I have disregarded what the nurse said ever since she told me that there was nothing wrong with me. You see I believe what God can do and what God does do! Through my close and very intimate relationship with God I have been constantly relying on Him through all of this. I have been spending special time with God, adding to the time which I normally spend with him during these past several months. The main pleasure through this on going illness is that I have been given many opportunities to praise God through my hardship!

While I was talking to God before my colonoscopy & endoscopy He told me that after my procedures what was wrong with me would be revealed. So when my husband told me what the doctor said and when I read the paper work (which the doctor had written possible dianose- Gastritis) I knew I definitely had Gastritis! No questions, no mistake, and never did I disbelieve that I did not have it, although I had nothing to prove I was right. However, I had God's word and THAT was enough.

I did some research on Gastritis. There are many causes. The most common cause being excessive alcohol consumption or prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen. In my case after researching Gastritis I found this to relate to my circumstance: It has been noted that one cause of Gastritis occurs when a person has a server infection (my case being Pleurisy) or have a major surgery ( I had a gallbladder surgery). Another known cause of Gastritis is if a person has an autoimmune disorder. Well folks I have an autoimmune disorder! So there it is!

I have consulted a new GI doctor, one that actually wants to treat his patients, not one who just wants to do procedures and take their money! My appointment is June 17th. I made the appointment a few weeks ago. Eternity seems to have passed just in the last two weeks since the appointment was made! Oh how I wish this was ALL OVER!!!

I know God has already healed me. God has assured me of this, and I must continue to be patient. I must try my best to be strong and stay within God through this even as this gets extremely difficult.

I tell you what, I deeply am grateful for my relationship with God and His continuous love and care for me! I will share with you that the last week I have begun to become depressed every once in a while... this is not good. I have suffered with depression in the past. I have not been depressed in several years. Yesterday was especially bad. Yesterday I was down but when I started reading one of my note books full of verses God lifted my spirit and renewed my strength. Yesterday I was calling out to God asking HIm to fill me with His presence. I waited for Him, and felt NOTHING! This is unusual for me. His presence is always ever near and within me. It was like I was in a deep black hole. The devil has been attacking me. I have been in a battle, and this sickness is just part of it. Anyway, I knew it was the devil, I could feel his evil presence around me. I begged God to rescue me!

I got off the couch and started saying the Armor of God out loud. I say the Armor of God every day, and I just recently added some very spiritual strong verses to it. I read them while saying the Armor of God. These verses which I believe God lead me to gave me POWER to fight against my enemy!!! When I said each word out loud it was as though God was knocking the worm right on the ground where he belongs!!!

From that point on I was better!!! I felt as through God wanted me to leave the house and do something fun. It was a lovely day, and I needed to be in the sun light. I decided to go to Robbie apt. He is a person I advocate for. Robbie needed help doing something and I decided what better time to help someone than when you are not feeling good? (I was feeling better... I mean I was in a hole before, but I still wasn't at that point completely ok yet). After helping Robbie do a few things for a couple of hours I went to an out door mall called Levis Commons. I do not believe that money buys happiness, however yesterday the money I spent made me happy, lol. I have been trying to find some summer clothes, and needed a dress to wear for church and also a special dinner date my husband is going to take me on in a few weeks. It is so discouraging going shopping and all you can find are these ugly clothes, and you swear designers hate heavy people! I refuse to buy or wear anything unless I love it and it looks good on me. I have a problem with wearing clothes at places like the Avenue, or Lane Braynat because I am not completely the size which they sell clothes for in those stores. I need to lose weight, but I am not quite those sizes, so the clothes don't fit me right... does anyone know what i am talking about? However if I go to a store like Express the clothes are ALL too small for me. Anyway, after going to Lane Bryant, I became frustrated, and hated the fact that I have not lost all of the weight which I need to lose. I resented the fact that I am constantly in pain, and can't exercise as the result of the fact. Then I thought, I am going to go to a store called Jill's. Jill's has clothing which are a little more expensive than I normally like to spend on clothes, and actually although I have been in the store several times I have never bought anything. However, I felt that if I can't find any clothes in a store which is suppose to have my size, but the clothes don't fit properly then sometimes I may need to spend extra money if need be. Well, I saw clothes that I liked but knew I would not be satisfied about how the clothes would look on me... know what I mean, have you been there too? I kept looking although thinking it was hopeless. I also was telling myself that if I DID find something it was going to be like $70.00 or $90,00. Like I said, I have been in the store before and never bought anything, it was because the clothes were all very exspensive. Then I saw this dress and it was so cute! After I tried it on I realized that it was only $60.00, and I was very happy! I never buy anything that i can't afford. Never use plastic, in fact, my husband and I hate using credit cards, we just don't use them.

Well, this is getting long. I had not intended to write about all of this when I started this post.
I just wanted to catch you up on myself, and what was going on. I am in pain just about every day. It is dibillitating, the pain is unreal. At times it feels like my organs are being crushed- no joke, I wish I was exaterating! I am having a very good week if I am not in pain 2 out of seven days. I can't remember when I was not in pain, it has been at least 17 days now since the last day I did not have pain.

I praise God and thank him for His grace, love, peace, and strength. Although I DO wish this whole thing was over I thank God for this. I have been able to grow in my patience. I have been healed of pain by His pure grace many times while crying through agony! He is my anchor through the storm!

God I ask that you continue to keep my strong. Build a wall of fire around me dear Lord. Keep the enemy at bay and show me your verses which continue to guide and strengthen me. In Jesus name I pray amen.

Sorry Sue, I went ya,Tuesday and meant to write. But my appointment was at 5:45, and then my husband and I went out to eat. When I got home I needed to call my mom and dad. By the time I was through talking to them I was too tired to write, and thought I would write to the team Wednesday. Well Wednesday was my breaking point! I have written in the posts which is on the team page. They are old posts from last year, but I wrote in both of them writing that I would write an update on an ER visit in one of them in a reply to the old post which I posted as a new post, LOL. Got that? emoticon

I am very sorry you guys, I made a mistake. I don't mean to confuse anyone. The 2nd to last post that you see under this one WAS NOT written just this past Sunday. It was in fact written about 2 weeks ago.

A very good friend pof mine asked me if i would be leaving the team, and I did not know what she was talking about. Now reading what I had copied and pasted from another thread I understand her confusion. No, I am not going any where. I was in terriable pain when I wrote those words. However, I also said that I would pray to God about it. I did and He doesn't want me to take a break, unstead he renewed my strength and helped me to endure the pain!!!

So, this (below) is a portion of the post which I meant to post here. THIS was originally written LAST Sunday:

I praise and thank God for everything in my life. I mean I tell you the truth although I feel I am just about in agony, however, I praise God any way for it, and do you know why? Hey, I look at it this way, I am not gonna waste this pain! I mean hey this is all in God's timing. I am not saying that God has given me this, right. But He can take it away and since He has not I must need this. Listen," And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose, that is in Romans8:28.

So what did I say? We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Now what does THAT really mean any way, do you know? We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose. When pain comes what is the first thing people do, they pray for the pain to stop, and hey there is no harm in that. God wants us to pray for pain to stop sometimes, most times, but sometimes there are times for pain...I mean pain IS part of life. We don't want to get dirty, or feel uncomfortable. We rather not be stressed, or confront people (although I really don't mind, it is a strong strength of mine in fact) in general we like to be happy and stay happy. We want to be healthy and not feel pain. Yet, who are we kidding, this is life and life has pain, heart ache and disappointment. The fact of the manner is we need it, what.... did I say that out loud? Yes, I NEED IT! The apostle Paul knew that he needed the good and the bad. In the bible Paul wrote that God told him,"
My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Then Paul said," Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." I have had so much pain in my life of various kinds that this verse has become my Life Verse, you know what I mean? I mean this verse has significant meaning to my inner being, and that verse gives me power from God just thinking about it! The strength from the Lord comes from His grace which He bestows upon me! You see God's grace is enough for me to handle this pain which I am in. The fact is, is that Gods strength is made perfect in my weakness. In this unbearable pain which I find myself in tonight it has left my body weak. I have done all that I could do. I have prayed with my husband, i have spent the last six hours lying down watching a movie trying to distract myself from the pain. I have taken 4 tynolne with codeen, and 2 strong pain killers. Yet the pain persists. God tells me His strength is made perfect in my weakness. What I cannot do God can do. What God is saying to us when we read those words is this: if we submit our pain, out stress, our heart ache our whatever God is there for us and HE will heal it. I am made perfect in your weakness, He tells us. Let God show how prefect He can be in your pain.

Ok, now back to that other verse, We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." So not only do we know that God's strength is made perfect in our weakness, we know that there is good in all things, so that means EVEN PAIN. No you say, no THAT can't be. Well, I am here to tell you that you are wrong. You see, I am here on this earth to grow closer to God in every way that I can. I want to be so close to God by the time that I die I want to breathe Him in; I want to feel Him completely wrapped around my body and spirit. I want God's thoughts to be my thoughts. I want His power (now don't get this wrong... I am not saying I want to be like God IN His power. I want to heal people. I want to lead people to God, I want THAT kind of power) I want to do whatever I can to grow in God's image from glory to glory. This is one thing the bible says about glory, God and us:"When we allow Christ to remove the veil something beautiful takes place. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit" I may be wrong in this but here are my thoughts. When we are in pain we want to cover that pain with comfort. This could be seen as a veil. I remove the veil and allow myself to feel the pain until God Himself removes the pain. His grace enters my spirit, and His strength carries me to a spirit filled place to endure the pain or have it removed. My being is transformed into glory from the glory of experiencing the pain while I am inside Christ.

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose. I know that this pain although intense and hard to bare is good because God is within that pain. God is working something GOOD out of my pain. I will tell you the truth since December I have been saying prayers that God helps me to grow in the fruit of patience while I am in pain. By and from the mercy of God I have grown in that area through the Spirit. My patience with pain has matured in me! All things God works good according to His purpose. I have used the pain which I have been suffering through to be used as the purpose to grow in Christ, to grow in the fruit of patience (the fruit of the Spirit). We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose. God put me on this earth to be His servant. I was born for a purpose and I live each day and try my best to seek God's will and live according to it.

This pain is hard to bear, this pain, what can I say... I wish that it was not here in my body. But you know what IS here? God. God is here with me in my pain!! My God has made good out of my pain. I am stronger in Christ as the result of my pain. My friends and relatives know that I have stood in this pain yet have found peace within my life. They know that if I would not have told them about my pain they still would have seen joyful, laughter within my words, spirit, and actions. Such things can only be done through God, but do you know what else? Such things can only happen through a spiritual growth through pain and suffering while clinging to God. It can only be as such through God. Spiritual growth will ever be the result of a perfect life. A happy peaceful life with no setbacks, with no suffering, and no hardships or trails. No spiritual growth will ever be the result of a perfect life. But pain, hardships, trials and tribulations, what can a life full of such bring one centered in Christ? Such a life can bring you a victorious life through Christ when you abide in God through each trail and tribulation. Trust me, I know, I have LIVED through some stuff, and it was God who saw me through it all.

Hey, guess what? MY PAIN IS GONE!!!!! God took the pain away!!!! Thank you God Thank you God THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!!

And God said, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Then Paul said," Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

Sue, please DO NOT feel bad. You have been a good friend. you have been faithful to me. It is I who took several days to return your emails. emoticon I have received so much support and love from all of you, God has been sooooooo very good to me from this team! I feel your prayers Sue, and I know that my peace and joy is the result of so many people praying for me! Thank you everyone.

Oh Sue, this thread is an old thread that I added to. I had another thread I wrote a post on titled, I am still in pain please pray. I meant to copy and paste that post here, but instead I coped an older post I had written a few weeks ago, perhaps 2 weeks ago. I can going to copy a portion of that post here above this post. I am sorry i think I have confused a few people. My dear friend janis ca;;ed me tonight thinking I might be taking a break from the team, but that was because the post I posted below was the wrong post I found and put here. That was the one I mentioned I wrote 2 weeks ago, NOT this past Sunday.

My dear Shelly,
My apologies for not being on this site as much. I just found this prayer forum today.
If I'd seen it or known about it I would have been on here MUCH sooner!
But you know I have been praying for you and am doing so now as you go through another trial.
Our trials are there to help us to be strong. We learn to lean on the Lord and trust Him in everything.
I pray now that the Lord will continue to give your doctor wisdom and compassion as he seeks to find the source of your pain and illness. I pray also that the Lord will continue to give you His strength to go through this trial. Isaiah 40:31 says: "But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.".
May you be strengthened and healed as you wait upon the Lord!

God bless you my GLITTERGIRL!

Much love in Him.
Sue

I wrote this and posted it this past Sunday:

I would be lying if I said I am not confused. I seem to continue to feel that I am getting better, because I feel no pain one day, but then the very next day I feel so much pain I am blown away by the burning, and oh, what can I say- at times I can't believe i am not in a hospital!

Yet, you see there is my faith. I AM HEALED, Nothing, not even unbelievable pain can take that fact away from my spirit. Those of you who have been on this team for a few years know I have been through all kinds of physical pain, set backs of many kinds, and trauma. So I know that God's healing is first revealed through your spirit and in God's timing it manifests within your body.

I feel like I need to take a break from this team... but man it is so hard. I was barely here during December, and I thought I could return by now. I will take a week and ask God to tell me what to do. I miss doing, Listen to the bible thread. I loved wring about the chapters (links) I featured on this thread one chapter of the bible at a time. I literally stopped in the middle of my last writings, stating that I was beginning to feel sick (this was back in
December.... the 6th) I have never just stopped typing saying I am sick I will finish this later!

Those of you who know me know what kind of team leader I am, being ill and not being able to write is very hard for me! My wish is that I can at least continue where I left off on the, Listen to the bible thread.

I will keep you updated. I have another appointment this Friday (look below I wrote about this appointment). My chest and abdominal x-rays that I had last week will be discussed. I will be asking for a report from those x-rays as well. I am in need of some serious pain pills, I hope to receive some!

I love you all. Good bless & take care. emoticon

Thank Janis, i do love my doctor. He has been our family doctor for about 14 years. He cares about me and even asks my husband about me when he is treating John during his appointment. He is a compassionate doctor who cares for all of his patients.

He seemed concerned about the previous doctor who did my surgery, which he couldn't refer me to since the gallbladder surgery was done after being in the emergency room. When he asked me about him, which I was surprised I told him that Dr. ____ was very unprofessional. he wanted to know exactly what I meant, so hey I told him! (Janis you know that story) I thank God for Dr. Peyton he is one of the best doctors I could have and I know God set it up!

This web site, MD Web, gives information about the pancreas and what role it pays in the body. There ias some great information here and wonderful detailed pictures too. www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/pi
ct
ure-of-the-pancreas
In short I have a strong reqson to believe ue to how I feel that I have something strong with my pancreas. I think I may have Pancreatitis. When I go back to the doctor he will recommend in Internist to see and we will go from thee. I am grateful that God has given me such a good doctor. He knows how serious this is and wants to get to the bottom of this. Acute pancreatitis is associated with excessive alcohol drinking and gallstones about 80% of the time in the U.S. Gallstone Pancreatitis an impacted gallstone blocks the ducts that drain the pancreas. Inflammation of the pancreas results, a serious condition. In my case it would have to be due to having gallstones. I just had gallbladder surgery January 18th of this year. I love my life and it is full of peace. I just have to walk through this, which is easy fro me because God is holding my hand! emoticon It is His love that I feel more than the pain although I am in extremely bad pain every day to a day in a half.

Sweet & Precious GLITTERGIRL,
You have been thriugh so much. It seems like you're getting every test possible. It's wonderful that your Doctor is being thorough. I hope this one that you feel good about, and not one like the one that told you to get on your exercise bike after your gall bladder surgery.
emoticon I mean now, "Come on! Wasn't that sounding a bit insane?" I hope this is a Doctor that you like very much, and someone you have alot of confidence in.
You've been in my prayers, Shelly. When is your appointment next week? Let us know, okay?
I love you very much, Janis emoticon emoticon

I would be lying if I said I am not confused. I seem to continue to feel that I am getting better, because I feel no pain one day, but then the very next day I feel so much pain I am blown away by the burning, and oh, what can I say- at times I can't believe i am not in a hospital!

Yet, you see there is my faith. I AM HEALED, Nothing, not even unbelievable pain can take that fact away from my spirit. Those of you who have been on this team for a few years know I have been through all kinds of physical pain, set backs of many kinds, and trauma. So I know that God's healing is first revealed through your spirit and in God's timing it manifests within your body.

I feel like I need to take a break from this team... but man it is so hard. I was barely here during December, and I thought I could return by now. I will take a week and ask God to tell me what to do. I miss doing, Listen to the bible thread. I loved wring about the chapters (links) I featured on this thread one chapter of the bible at a time. I literally stopped in the middle of my last writings, stating that I was beginning to feel sick (this was back in
December.... the 6th) I have never just stopped typing saying I am sick I will finish this later!

Those of you who know me know what kind of team leader I am, being ill and not being able to write is very hard for me! My wish is that I can at least continue where I left off on the, Listen to the bible thread.

I will keep you updated. I have another appointment this Friday. My chest and abdominal x-rays that I had last week will be discussed. I will be asking for a report from those x-rays as well. I am in need of some serious pain pills, I hope to receive some!

I love you all. Good bless & take care. emoticon

Walkinginlove I just want to add thank you so very much for everything that you wrote. I said out loud everything you wrote and asked me to say. I stopped and said "your" words as I read your reply. It is so awesome that God gives us His words to help His children, and i rejoice with you as you can discern when the Holy Spirit is upon you!

Your story was moving, and touching. Thank you so much for sharing it with me! As I wrote below I am well my friend, well and healed through my spirit, yet my body still feels the pain. In God's time my complete healing will take place. I will write you back (email) and share with you what happened to me with Jesus this morning when I am feeling a bit better. I love you!

My dear friends Janis, and Walkinginlove, thank you for your reply.

Ok, yesterday morning my husband and I went to my doctors appointment. I have a very good doctor who is extremely through. She told me that i may have Costochondritis or Pleurisy.

Costochondritis is an inflammation located between the upper ribs & cartilage. If you want to find out more about Costochondrtis you can click on the link below which I added for you: www.webmd.com/pain-management/costoc
ho
ndritis
It is hard for me to explain to you what Pleurisy is in my own words so I will quote a source from a web site,"Pleurisy is swelling (inflammation) of the thin layers of tissue (pleura) covering the lungs and the chest wall. The outer layer of the pleura lines the inside of the chest wall, and the inner layer covers the lungs. The tiny space between the two layers is called the pleural cavity. This cavity normally contains a small amount of lubricating fluid that allows the two layers to slide over each other when you breathe." If you want to know more about Pleurisy here is the link: www.webmd.com/lung/tc/pleurisy-overv
ie
w



My doctor ordered a chest and abnormal x-rays, which was preformed the same day went to my appointment. She also gave me a prescription for an inhaler which I have been using, and a prescription of Ibuprofen which I have been taking.

I praise and thank God because He has healed me, although at this current time i am feeling an extreme amount of pain. The pain of Pleurisy has been described as your lungs being rubbed against sand paper, and i can agree, the pain I am experiencing is much to that description! However, I magnify God for He is righteous and awesome! He gives me much peace and strength. I am healed! I will state what i said out loud after reading Walkinginlove's reply,"Satan, I bind you in the name of Jesus & command you and your sickness off this body! You have no part in this life or body because I belong to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! So, in the name of Jesus, and being obedient to his word, I command you to leave in the name of Jesus! Where two or more are gathered in the name of Jesus (I am praying in agreement with you), we can ask anything in HIS name, and know that he will do it! Pain, cough, congestion, fever, aches, virus (and whatever else...name it!)...I command you to leave in the name of Jesus! For by the stripes of Jesus, I AM HEALED! May God receive all the glory! In his name I pray, AMEN!" By the stripes of Jesus I am healed. His healing blood courses through my veins. No weapon formed against me shall prosper!!!."

*** I have more to add about my healing from God for God revealed a wonderful thing to me this morning, and i felt no pain at all for about 2 hours before I took any medicne! However, the pain did come back. But I tell you this: no matter what a person says, no matter what I think or feel I am healed THROUGH JESUS!!! I will wait with Jesus by my side to feel completely better!!! Amen. When I am feeling a little better I will share with you what happpened between Jesus and me.

Love you all, and thanks for the prayers.

Hello my sweet friend Shelly! I am so sorry you are not feeling well! I did not know! I will definately be keeping you in my prayers! I encourage you to say outloud..."Satan, I bind you in the name of Jesus & command you and your sickness off this body! You have no part in this life or body because I belong to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! So, in the name of Jesus, and being obedient to his word, I command you to leave in the name of Jesus! Where two or more are gathered in the name of Jesus (I am praying in agreement with you), we can ask anything in HIS name, and know that he will do it! Pain, cough, congestion, fever, aches, virus (and whatever else...name it!)...I command you to leave in the name of Jesus! For by the stripes of Jesus, I AM HEALED! May God receive all the glory! In his name I pray, AMEN!" (Wow! God gave me those words...they are not my own, I would have said it a little differently ;) And let the constant confession out of your mouth be "By the stripes of Jesus I am healed. His healing blood courses through my veins. No weapon formed against me shall prosper." Stay positive! I am praying for you and believing God for the positive report! Here's 2 encouraging stories to build your faith: (1) Back in November, I was in a grocery story and saw a young mother crying. I did not know her, but God led me over to her to see if I could pray for her. She said she had just come from the doctors office, and the dr. said her baby had spinabifida, and was deaf in both ears. I prayed for the baby's healing & went on my way after giving the momma a hug & telling her everything was going to be okay. I was fortunate enough to find out later who these people were & the baby was totally healed!!! (God's word to you is everything is going to be okay Shelly. Trust me!) (2) We have been praying for a lady's brother in our Bible study group. He was deathly ill & needed a kidney & liver transplant. He received his gift on CHRISTmas! God loves us all SOOOOO MUCH! and nothing is too hard for him! his timing is perfect! Every good and perfect gift comes from the father!......Again, I love you Shelly! May these stories build your faith as you walk in your Victory! emoticon emoticon emoticon ....Now, just waiting on the positive report!

Love God & Love people.

Hi, I have been enjoying this Christmas season, although I have been very sick. I hope everyone has had a very wonderful Christmas! This Christmas was shared with a very special Sunday school student that I teach in my Sunday school class, Robbie. He has become part of our family, and John and I have become very blessed while we have been spending time with him, and helping him. He came over our house in the afternoon Christmas Eve and spent the night in our guest room. Sharing Christmas with my husband and Robbie, it was one of the best Christmas's ever!

I was so pleased and happy that I was able to go to our Christmas Eve services at church. I was feeling so badly I was unsure if I would be able to go. However, after taking a 2 hour nap I felt as though I had begun to get better!

I have been sick since December 5th. I have taken Z packs (antibiotics) and have seen the doctor. I am going to the doctors this morning and will be requesting a few tests, and procedures to find out what the hell is wrong with me.

My husband, John and I have been on the internet looking up walking phonia, upper repertory infection, and bronchitis. Last night John was on the 'net and looked up different tests, blood work, whatever which would better diagnose what I have.

I have written the team asking for prayer, and explaining my absence. I have been in so much pain I have not been on the team more than 2-3 times since December 10th. You know me; I am always on the team page, so I have been extremely sick! LOL

God is going me peace as I seek Him daily & abide in Him. I am strong in the Lord through His power! In John 16:33 God tells us, .... In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.I was thinking about this verse last month. This morning I woke up and felt more ill than ever. While I was praying the Holy Spirit brought the above verse to mind. Now last month as I was pondering this verse I became aware of the fact that God was telling us that this world will drag you through some very unpleasant things. However, we are to have courage, for Jesus has conquered the world! God gave me a new revelation you see! That verse means that whenever we are going through trials and tribulations, and sickness we are not to become discouraged because we have courage whatever that which will bring us down, BECAUSE Jesus has already conquered it FOR US!!! I can proclaim myself well, although I feel my illness at its worst!!! I have conquered this THROUGH GOD!!!

I thank God and praise Him because He has given me much peace, grace, and joy through His Spirit. I remind all of you to seek God daily, even through your sickness. He is always near and wants you to feel Him alive within YOU!

Although I realize I am healed through God I am in my body very ill. My complete healing will take place in His timing. Please pray for me and put me on a prayer list though your church, if you attend one, or within your friends and family. I am in a lot of pain. I plan to go to the hospital if necessary if I do not get better within a week or so, but I will pray to God for guidance about this first.

I love all of you! emoticon

emoticon everyone for your prayers. I know prayers have been said for me from other members who have not replied, I thank those of you who have prayed, yet not replied as well. emoticon

I have gone to see my doctor and have taken antibiotics on December11th. I think I have an upper respitory infection. I will be calling my doctor again today to be seen again.

I feel very badly that I have not been here for you, although I know that my team members know how dedicated I am and also know that you understand. emoticon I love you all!

Although I have been very sick the holy Spirit resides inside of me and is taking good care of me! I have very much been enjoy this Christmas season regardless of being ill. He shines through me and holds me while lifting my spirit up. I am sp grateful of my relationship with jesus and all the things which He does for me!

Please continue to keep me in your prayers. It is hard for me to be away from this team, and not do my part as a team leader. Also, I need to get completely well so that I can continue to teach Sunday school for my dear students. My throat is still sore, and my voice.. well lets just say it is not back completely, and sometimes I can't talk!

I have been VERY VERY sick sorry I have been an absent team leader

I have been extremely sick since last
Thursday (December 6th)

now feeling well enough to get on the computer. I am very sorry. Each
December I post things all about God on various threads. This year I am really behind due to being so sick. I had a respite infection, a cough, sore throat, and the flu! I could barely talk for three days and then lost my voice completely for another three days. I am just now starting to feel better but even now I still am not completely well.

However God has been so good to me, and I thank Him. I received antibiotics earlier than I otherwise would have. Kinda a long story, and my eyes are starting to hurt due to the glare on the computer. Need to get off before i am in pain.

Just wanted to let you know, I would never be away from this team this long unless I am very sick. I will write more when I can.
