no idea 

I will bet dollars to donuts there is not a person here who at some point did not think the same thing however we never know the true suffering of others and many may not share the worst of the worst to try to spare others having too much on their minds especially when they are suffering something of their own. 

 

As for God:  In the bible it does say call no man rabi... the people wanted a leader.  I am not sure how that get taken out of context all the time but I do know it says this. I am not Jewish but this is a good explanation of it... it also says call no man father or teacher..

I think it wise to make a distinction between God and man who presents himself as a representative of Gods... there is always a difference and going to the source with damaged caused by the latter is the best suggestion I can give you. I am also sorry this happened to you but I do hope you can use it in your life to come to help others. 

I wish you peace

I think he does just not always in the way that you expect and it may take a long time as he does not do magic but miracles.  

 

be still and know that I am God

(Romans 8:32). Psalm 46:10 encourages us to reflect on what God can do in the face of what we are unable to do.

I am in no way judging you... when you have done all you can when you have pushed yourself and your reserves beyond what you can stand... be still. I have in the past been mad at God too.. and I have decided it is a better life to trust him. You may change your mind one day or you may not either way I still wish you peace.

Ummm, I don't think that is an accurate assumption on a site like this. There are people here suffering tremendously and fighting off the urge every minute of every day to end it all. And many of them have been fighting for a long long time.

 

There is no temptation that comes upon us that is not common to man.

 

You are not unique. The more you say you are, the more you will suffer. It is a lie we are fed, to make us isolate from anyone who could help us and to convince us that God is helping everyone else and not us. This is not so.

DELIVERANCE AND HEALING FROM PERSCRIPTION MEDICATIONS

 

I was suffering from a life resulting from a lot of bad choices I made as a messed up person.  I was addicted to work and pleasing others. 

A couple weeks after 9/11 happened I went to a doctor because my heart was racing and I thought I was having a heart attack. I had stopped treating my sleep problems (I had insomnia my whole life) with natural products like vitamins and herbal teas and was drinking lots of coffee at work -- doing stuff that made me worse, including working 6 days a week and long hours. What I needed was to just let go and let GOD and a vacation.

The doc probably thought it was stress due to all going on in the country at the time.  She put me on a medication (I knew better than to do this!). It was called Paxil.  In 2 weeks I called her and told her I was worse.  She increased the dose.  This led to a nightmare for me.  In the 6 weeks I was on this drug I went what you call "MANIC". In all my years I had never gotten to this place before, even back many years ago when I did illegal drugs.

I was an outstanding employee; right arm to the president - helping doing various responsiblities of cleaning up a company they purchased.

During this time I stole thousands of dollars from my employer and spent it all in 6 weeks! Yes, me, who never stole a pencil from work.  I also did some other crazy things.  None of the money could be accounted for because I was out of my mind.  Fortunately I or nobody else lost their life during those 6 weeks.

I stopped the drug and crashed. I told them what I did. I got arrested and ended up in a 3 day stay at a mental hospital because I was afraid I would kill myself over what I had done.

These psychiatric doctors said I was bipolar. Well who wouldn’t be after being on that drug.  Anyway, these doctors wanted me to sue the medical doc who put me on that drug because she should have taken me off it when I called at 2 weeks with worse symptoms.  Instead she had increased it. They kept telling me I had a great case. I didn’t want to sue anyone.

I had to go to court proceedings.  I should have been put in prison. BUT, THE LORD TOOK CARE OF ME THROUGH THIS.  Even though I did not plead insanity like the doctors told me to do (because I felt I should own up to the consequences of my actions), I pled guilty and did not present my medical issues. By the grace of God I got off with just probation and to make monthly payments for 10 years.

I was such a mess.  I let the doctors put me on drugs.  I believed the lie I was bipolar. After going through a lot of drugs, this is what I ended up on daily for a few years: (enough to put down an elephant): 900 mg Seroquel, 300 mg Topamax, 3 mg Ativan, 3 mg Klonopin and more that I forgot the names of.  Also, for my fibromyalgia: 3 different drugs daily.  I forgot what they were but they were muscle relaxers and pain meds.

So I was for sure not in my right mind.  I could not function. I went on disability and gained a ton of weight.  One of my daughters had to do my checkbook. I was a zombie.

It took some years of living like this before the Lord could break through the wall. But thanks to HIM I was delivered from all these very very addictive meds and HE HEALED me.

I had pain for 20 years.  I had insomnia my whole life, and was addicted to lots of medications. Now I am pain free and drug free and I sleep. Also, I am more “balanced” than ever before, due to looking to Jesus for my everything - not others, nor constant drugs.

Also - instead of this legal mess going on for 10 years, in just 4 years for no reason at all every legal issue was all dropped and my record was wiped clean and I no longer had to repay the monthly payments.  It was if it never happened.  Who could do this?? JESUS of course!!!!

I have walked many paths but that was a very dark, scary one.  Still - HE REMEMBERED ME!  The Lord just keeps restoring all that the enemy stole from me.  No matter what path you are currently on, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light!

Staff Note:  To appreciate even more what God has done in Mona's life, you can read another testimony she has written:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/BornAgain/L-N/Mona.htm

Many people ask God to take away their pain, (addiction;etc.) and leave it at that.  When He doesn't, they come to believe God doesn't care.  But for multitudes who have testified of the delivering and healing power of Jesus Christ becoming actively involved in their painful situations ... they had to be willing to place their total trust in Him, and then be willing to do everything He asked them to do from that point on. 

Jesus declares:  "Have faith in God" - Mark 11:22 

When Jesus stated that, the context in which it was intended was addressing this issue:  When there seems to be no way, God will make a way if we wholeheartedly trust Him.  When we've run out of human answers, God has answers we can't fathom, but we must wholeheartedly trust Him.  God always has and always will be the God who can execute ANY miracle.  The question becomes:  "How desperate and determined are we to trust Him for one?"

When we are in pain, we just want it to go away.  We want a "zap" from God in a moment of time so it will go away.  God has and does do that at times, but usually He DOESN'T because He sees areas in our lives that need to be dealt with first - often spiritual matters of serious importance - before deliverance and healing (and blessing) comes of our problems.

When it comes to sicknesses and diseases, often time we must be willing to change what we are putting into our bodies, as well as engaging in proper excercise.  Lifestyles may need changing, because stress kills.  What we are feeding our minds can be killing us.  What we think about can kill us.  There can be many issues God wants us to deal with before He's willing to execute healing on our behalf.

God allows us to reach points of pain where it will drive us to Him for relief.  It's in our times of desperation when we call out to Him and refuse to let Him go, that He sees a willingness in us to deal with certain issues we've minimized in the past ... or outright buried because of the trauma it has caused us, and/or aren't even consciously aware of. 

Sometimes it goes even deeper than that.  Sometimes it becomes necessary to have pointed, accurate prayer executed on behalf of demonic strongholds in the spirit realm that hold us ensnared, and unless those demonic strongholds are broken, we can walk around never walking in total victory.  Other times, breaking demonic strongholds off our lives involves changing the way we believe about things -- changing the way we go about trusting God and trusting His Word.

The person with serious health issues who does not have a trusted individual to help them deal with spiritual sickness issues has no recourse but to get alone with God and let God do what He knows is always best in their particular situation.  (Though getting alone with God should never be a last resort.  It should always be our first course of action!)  In so doing, we need to be trustingly patient with God.  We need to trust in Him to do what needs to get done in all areas of our lives -- doing whatever He wants us to do to work in co-operation with His plan -- and show a willingness to be teachable.  This is the soil in which miracles happen in our lives.

There is no sickness nor disease that faith in Jesus Christ can't heal.  There is no addiction/s faith in Jesus Christ can't set a person free from.  There is no situation on earth a person might be dealing with that faith in Jesus Christ doesn't have an answer for and the power to execute His answer.  His answer might not always be what we want at the time, but His answer/s will pay eternal dividends.  Jesus Christ has ALL power, because He and the Father and the Holy Spirit are God.  But we must be teachable.  Often - We must come to a place where there is no other option to turn to for help but Jesus.

Wiser words have never been stated.  For most people ... do you know when you'll get free from your addiction/s?  When you get desperate enough.  Do you know when you'll get healed from your sickness and disease?  When you get desperate enough.  When there seems to be no other way; when it seems like all hope is gone ... no matter how frustrated you are with God from times past or at present ... He is eagerly waiting for you to trust Him again and again and again and ... 

Trusting God can seem to be the hardest thing in the world.  I've tasted that painful, frustrating place.  Yet it's the wisest thing we can do -- leaning on Him to deal with our pain.  If it wasn't, I wouldn't be alive this moment writing this, nor would a multitude of others who have testimonies to share of the mighty power of God to deliver and heal and bless.  

Yet I believe we need to be very careful about forming beliefs that refuse to believe that God can take someone to glory through their sickness and/or disease.  We view things soley from this side of eternity.  Ever person who has died from some sickness or disease and passed into heaven never started complaining they were in in heaven, I have no doubt.

I'm of the belief that God wants us doing everything we know to do to help either ourselves or someone else become free of sicknesses and diseases, if they want our help -- yet be willing to hear the Holy Spirit say that it's time to let that person go on to glory if that is what God determines is best for the person, or ourselves.  

Sometimes the accumulated pain of life and/or the pain of the sickness or disease is too great for a person suffering (and sometimes those close to them).  Sometimes God weighs that issue and determines it is best to let that person come HOME.  Who are we to hinder that option, or get all bent out of shape about that option God many times uses? 

Sure we would like everyone to be totally healthy at death.  One moment perfectly healthy; then the heart stopping quickly and translation to heaven.  I'm guessing God would like the same.  But we don't live in a world YET that deals in "perfect situations".  That world is coming; it just is not here YET.  We live in a broken, chaotic world where sin and evil rages, and God works with us more at that level at present than in "perfect situations." 

We'll close with that.

I am jumping in here as I need your prayers.  My head is too foggy to read through all the preceding pages, I am sorry, but I will when it clears.  I am a Christian and need help.  With this last taper about two weeks ago, I've felt SOOO bad - dizzy, emotional, angry, nauseous, depressed.  On top of that, I have had a sinus infection which makes many of the same physical symptoms withdrawal does.  I am finishing a round of antibiotics, but it is not clearing up.  I am so dizzy, confused, weak, lethargic.  I am sure it is made worse by the taper which has been a rough one.  I am afraid I have a sinus tumor or something since it is not getting better, but it could be sinus infection and the withdrawal.  No matter what, please pray for my healing and my mind.  Paula

Lord,

 

I ask for relief for Paula. I ask that You would give her peace and give her body rest to recuperate from her illness. God, only You know what is going on in her body. She needs You to help her emotionally and physically. I thank You that You are already working, and have been. Thank You for You love and faithfulness. Let Paula know your truth and grace in her life as she endures and clings to You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Ty. I read today that in Him suffering produces perseverance Rom. 5:3, and He may be performing a miracle on our hearts rather than our circumstances. Maybe He is working on my heart and leaving my head/sinuses/withdrawal for later! We are all certainly persevering!

Father,

 

Help your son to know the truth that will set him free. Help him to truly know it, not experience it, not feel it, but to know it as truth. I pray that You would open His eyes to the blessings in his life, to how much favor You have given him, to Your working for his ultimate good. I pray for healing for him, for his spirit. I ask for your peace in this situation, and for his eyes to be opened as to how much You have done to spare him, and how much You want to do in his life. in Jesus Name Amen.

 

God, I pray that we would have a desire to seek You and not only Your hand, that we would give up the notion about what we deserve, and instead of seeking a perfect life that we would seek You, The Perfect One. In Your Son's Name. Amen.

I remember early on when I was tapering Ativan and more terrified than I've ever been I couldn't find God no matter how hard I tried. I read the word and prayed, nothing but silence. Now I see that he was there all along. He is faithful to his word that he will never leave or forsake us. I read this ealier from Tony Woodlief's blog and found it very comforting. 

 

 

If nothing else, suffering lifts our eyes from this shattered plane to the world that is coming, that already dwells within our hearts, at least sometimes, and which will be written out in new flesh, in a new heaven and a new earth. We are sojourners through suffering and through mercies, not always in equal measure. But we are sojourners, which means this is not our home, yes, but which means also that we have a home to which we are going. We are stumbling homeward and we are battered but he carries us, make no mistake, even when he is quiet. Perhaps especially then.
