When your feeling low

This is a poem that A friend Donna from church wrote for me. Thought it would be nice to share this with you all.

When your in despair and feeling low
There is one to whom you can go
When sickness comes and your feeling unwell
We have a friend to who our troubles we can tell
With him we have nothing to fear
He will be there to catch each falling tear
So if in him we all things confide
In his arms everlasting we can safely hide.

Just wanted to say thank you Donna for this Poem. It has been a real help to me.

Another update

I was back at the hospital on Monday to see the neurologist. They have got the results of the tests back, they say that the spinal fluid had some abnormalities in it. But they are still not sure what is causing it. So the took more blood tests. I have to go back and see him gain in about 3 months. Am still seeing the physiotherapist once a week.

God Said No

God Said NO!!

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole,
his body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn't granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings;
Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life,
so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others,
as much as He loves me.
God said...Ahhhh,
finally you have the idea.

Unshakable Peace

Unshakable Peace

Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11-13, Romans 8:28, Philippians 4:5-7

The Lord has only good plans in store for your life. When satan tells you to worry, God has the opposite in mind. He wants you to trust him and to experience His peace on a daily basis. How do we gain and retain the true peace of God?

1. Recognize your dependence is on God. Take responsibility for your actions, but let God have the reins to your life.

2. Pray. The enemy cannot defeat you when you are on your spiritual knees before God in prayer. This is the true pathway to unshakable peace.

3. Trust God, when thoughts of fear invade your mind. Tell the Lord what you are feeling and claim His presence as your protection and shelter.

4. Focus only on God. Don't cling to negative thoughts. Set the focus of your heart on God and His possibilities. You can live life to the fullest because Christ is alive in you and all things are under His feet. He is in control. He is on the throne. Nothing escapes His notice. That's something we can rest in!
