Woke up at 3:30 this morning and laid in bed, but couldn't sleep. So I listened to a Christian playlist on my bluetooth head phones as not to disturb the boss. During this time I began to contemplate on my prayer commitments. OGF prayer needs were part of that. I wondered how long we keep this thread going and when we'd see an answer to our prayers. I never received that revelation, but I do know that my prayers and all the prayers offered here are heard. I learned a long time ago that God always hears our prayers, he will always answer. The thing is, we are impatient and narrow minded in what we expect of our prayers. I learned also that the answer is not often in the form or recipe we imagined, but with faith God will do impossible things. The most important thing is to remember it all works out for Good, it's gonna be Ok. Be patient and open minded. In this life we will suffer, but our sufferings are like a refining fire and we are like the grapes in a wine press, being pressed out to be made better by the creator. Paul said, "we die daily". Faith is knowing that what we can not see is there and that the things we hope for are certain. whether we live or die is not the issue, but how God will use what becomes of us. Through Christ we are assured eternal life, no matter our misery here we are healed in the end of all things in the flesh and transformed into the spiritual. For all we are praying for I tell you with faith....It's gonna be ok. Our prayers our for your healing but our trust is God will work it all out for good.

Slim, it sure seems like you have had your share of all of this. They say that the strongest warriors get the toughest battles. I continue to lift you up to the Lord and pray for his healing touch and to give you strength as you continue this difficult walk you've been on.
