Update to prayer needed for trussell
My heart and head | 12/01/2012 | trussell

Posted on 12/01/2012 5:22:08 AM PST by trussell

As suggested, since so many freepers have been praying, I am sharing this in the open forum.

So many freepers have been praying for me…for my back issues and my work issues. I finally have an update. I had my surgery on November 14th. I had a job interview on the 7th of November and my surgery for my back one week later. I was hired for the job but with all the background checks etc…it was going to be the 3rd of December before the position could start.

I have had home health nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists coming by several times a week since I was released on the 17th of November, 2 days later than normal. I have had troubles needing a cane and high doses of pain meds. I have finally been released to drive. My job definitely starts on Monday.

My doctor says I need a brace since I can’t use my cane at work, so today I went to get my brace but was told by the supply complany that my insurance won’t pay for the brace. The brace I need is about $140 as it has the metal and cinches and everything else required to help me accomplish my day. I am sick with tears after driving all the way to town on the last of my gas only to be told I can’t get the brace I need. I would appreciate prayers for forgiveness for any words I might have said that were not Christian in nature and also for the bad thoughts I have towards the company who refused to check with my insurance and instead, checked with their main office who told them it wouldn’t be covered when my insurance said it would be. I am fearful that if I go to work without the brace or the cane, I will give away my body’s weakness and be sent home. I am in need of so many prayers. Please....I couldn’t possibly name them all as only God knows what all I need.

Even beginning the new job, the entire checks for the 6 weeks of work will be going to my landlord as I owe him rent since a year ago last July...so there will still be no funds. God is good...and I just keep praying that this job will lead to another and another until I get one that turns into a full-time, permanent.

Christmas will be family being together, a cake for Jesus’ birthday and dinner. We may get to put up the Christmas tree as part of getting in the spirit.

Oh, prayers please that the wakening of the nerves in my back will not cause too much discomfort in my legs...it is already starting to hurt in the right front thigh and the left lower leg as well as the extreme lower back just below the incision site. All prayers appreciated. God Bless you all and I wish for you all to have a very Merry Christmas. Trussell

When we obey the Lord, and act according to His will, forgiveness comes. Forgiveness is a by-product of salvation.

I pray that the Father has his way in your life.

God is good all of the time. Never doubt that the work He is producing in your life, is for your good and has a purpose.

Merry Christmas.

I borrowed one of my children’s biomed tens units...which is not an option now as I have open sores on my back from the surgical incisions. I also took high doses of pain meds that aren’t strong enough to help with the pain of the surgery. It was a very fast interview and I grit my teeth alot to hide the pain that wasn’t relieved from the tens unit.

I pray you are not from the area or the company I am going to be working for...I NEED this job.

Make sure you have documentation your insurance will cover the brace?

I realize you "need" the job but it sounds like you faked your way through the process and your employer will expect you do be in better shape than you really are. This is not a good position to have put either of you in.

Be thankful you have insurance and a landlord who would let you have months of 'free rent' that you can pay back. Many have neither.

Thank you so much. I was upset with myself yesterday for some thoughts and words that came from me. I have prayed for forgiveness, it’s so good to know that forgiveness is received. Yesterday was a very rough day.

Thank you and God Bless!

Thank you so much Amberdawn. I look forward to my back pain and leg pain to be a thing of the past, only a distant memory while God works to make me a better person in body and soul.

God Bless!

I would appreciate prayers for forgiveness for any words I might have said that were not Christian in nature and also for the bad thoughts I have towards...

I'm the last person to advise anyone about something like this, but, since this is what I'm doing, it's not hypocritical to suggest you also follow Jesus' advice about how to pray by saying the Lord's prayer.

There is one simple part that covers what you are asking for and also lets us in on the secret of how things work:

"Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us."

That's the deal. That's a big part of the secret.

For what it's worth, years ago I stumbled upon a book on how to meditate. The author suggested that instead of a mantra, say the Lord's Prayer slowly and methodically as you would a mantra.

The author felt that not only is the meaning of great value, the rhythm, pentameter, wording, etc. was perfect for use as a meditation.

You can also use the individual letters of the Hebrew alphabet, depending on your purpose and intent.

Oh what a tangled web we weave when at first we try to deceive.

If the employer,part time, full time, temp whatever detects a back problem(and obviously a serious one ) not disclosed the new hire is history due to deception which no amount of prayers will remedy as this leaves the employer open to all kinds of legal BS.
That has the potential to really screw up chances for any thing else farther down the road especially if this is a small community which was indicated by the response back to my initial posting.

I faked my way through a DOT physical one time,hiding a knee problem. I later re-injured my knee on the job and was given the chance to resign vs get fired for not disclosing and fraud.
I took the offer as they were aware that what I said happened on the job could not cause the amount of damage seen by the MRI on my knee. The deception and aggravation and lying were not worth it.
I learned a good lesson and I was relieved when the ordeal was over as I no longer had to live a lie. The next job I applied for I disclosed the knee and they said thats OK we like your other qualifications and I was there for 4 years and after that again found something better.

I can understand fully the urgency to find employment but living a lie will only cause grief later on.

My surgeon expected me to be in better condition for work than I am. I didn’t fake my way through, I just didn’t mentino that I would be having surgery because my doctor didn’t think it would interfere with my ability to do the job.
