Pain No More
For a good portion of my life, I shared the perspective of those who rail against God for allowing pain. I could find no way to rationalize a world as toxic as this one.
As I visited people whose pain far exceeded my own, though, I was surprised by its effects. Suffering seemed as likely to reinforce faith as to sow doubt.
My anger about pain has melted mostly for one reason: I have come to know God. He has given me joy and love and happiness and goodness. It leaves me with faith in a Person, a faith so solid that no amount of suffering can erode it.
Where is God when it hurts? He has been there from the beginning. He designed a pain system that, in the midst of a fallen world, bears His stamp. He transforms pain, using it to teach and strengthen us if we allow it to turn us toward Him.
He has hurt and bled and cried and suffered. He has dignified for all time those who suffer, by sharing their pain. But one day He will gather the armies of heaven and will unleash them against the enemies of God. The world will see one last terrifying moment of suffering before the full victory is ushered in. Then God will create for us a new, incredible world. And pain will be no more (Rev. 19:1122:6).
He left His Fathers throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adams helpless race. Wesley
Pain will either turn us against God or draw us to Him.
A humble Prayer for him...
Good Afternoon to all of you.
I’m brought to tears with this outpouring of Love and Prayers.
I’m awaiting a call from the hospital as to what time the procedure will take place tomorrow. They may keep me overnight tomorrow or they may send me home on Wednesday depending on the time and recovery.
I’ll provide updates as things progress.
Again, thank you all so very much for your prayers for me and my family.
Our Loving Savior-King, with All our Hearts we Pray for our Brother in Christ, Diver Dave.
Please Surround him with Your Presence, Lord, and Enfold him in Your Peace and Love.
Please Work through his Surgeons, Father, with the Power of Your Strong Right Hand.
May the Cancer be Totally Destroyed, in Jesus' Holy Name.
Please Comfort Dave and his Family, and Strengthen them, O Faithful God.
Please Encircle them with Your Kindness, and Rest and Refresh their Dear Hearts.
In Jesus' Name, we Thank You and Praise You, Lord, amen.
May the Lord bless and keep you, Dave, and place His healing hands on you..
May the Good Lord guide his doctors and provide them wisdom in their treatment. May the Great Physician, the Good Lord, provide healing, comfort, and peace to Dave and his family.
God’s desire is that Diver Dave be well and walk in health. God is not the author of disease and sickness. He has already provided for our healing through Jesus’ death on the Cross of Calvary. Believe in God’s desire and ability to heal. It is already done for us. We don’t need to try to convince God to heal us. It is already done and He is on our side! I’m rooting for you, Diver Dave, and will pray that you receive all that God wants you to have. He wants you well!!!!!
Dave, as a survivor of incurable and fatal cancer (as well as permanent kidney damage leading to dialysis), I wanted you to know that I am praying for you. God is good and He has you in His hands.
It is an honor to add my prayers to Dave and his family.
Thanks for the heads up. God be with you Diver Dave.
