I injured my leg last fall running in a cross country meet. I have had reoccuring problems with this injury off and on for the past year. I went to the doctor today, and he isnt sure what is going on, the exrays came back fine, however he thinks it might be a problem with the soft tissue in my right calf. I was scheduled for an MRI on monday to find out if it is a soft tissue problem, i am terrified that the MRI will come back and the problem will be serious, or worse, that nobody will have ever seen anything like my case. Please pray for the MRI, that it would show a problem that can be fixed without surgery. Also i am having difficulty trusting God in this matter. I am angry that he is letting this happen to me because sports and athletics are my life. Pray that I would remember that God knows best, and that something good will come out of this. Thank you!
Thank youall so much. Just last night a guy who has been tormenting em consistantly texted me and apoligized. We are slowly making our way to a fragile friendship. Thank you all for your prayers. You have no idea how much it helps!
In the shadow if His Cross
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Hi. I am going through a emotionally draining time. I attend a Christian school yet i sustain constant critisism. It is literally crushing me. People just dont think abot what may be happening in my life. Like last week I was crying because i got word that my nana ( who has cancer) was in gut wrenching pain. some guys and a few girls that are in my grade and proclaim to be christiansn Laughed at me. You have no idea how bad that hurt! i cry daily and im a struggling with a self image issue. i have an amazing best friend who i have no idea what i would do without. She is ALWAYS there for me. Lord i thank you from the bottomof my heart that you sent MA into my life to help ease the pain. My friend MA is also experiancing the pain of a loved one with cancer that is supposidly "uncurable." But we keep our chins up by thinking that With God ALL things are possible. Thanks for your prayers.
Praise God! My grandma came through the surgery well! She was released by the doctor today she can freely drive and she needs a few weeks to recover from a second surgery then she will begin chemo adn radiation. Thanks so much.i would appreciate if any of you all would consider just occasionally checking up with me about ehr. if you want to i would appreciate a email.
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): My name is Sarah. My Grandma is having surgery on the 29th in an attempt to remove the rest of the cancer from her body. Please pray for me as this is the thrid grandparent who has gotten cancer. The other two have died. Pray for the doctors performing the surgery. And for comfort for me and my family.
and i was wondering what you guys thought. i am trying to decide if i want to submit it for my school lit mag. so tell me what you think...
I saw you again,
on a hill
where you told me
“I am the absence of pain, of guilt, of lies.”
And this is how you love me.
No matter how far I fall,
whatever I do,
wherever I am…
sometimes when I see you,
I act like I didn’t.
I try to make a clean getaway.
And every time you end up seeing me…
I don’t know how.
You give me that look,
that look that I feel inside.
it’s like three nails.
so I stand there.
you move in and fill my lungs again.
you stitch me up,
plugging all of the bullet holes
and extracting all of the jagged shrapnel.
It’s an outpatient procedure…
now I am sitting on this bed,
why would you do that?
then it hits me,
it beats me until I feel the tears on my face…
because you love.
Wow! thats good! i have on that id like some cocmments on..
My life is but a weaving
between my lord and me
i cannot choose the colors
he worketh steaddily
oftentimes he weaveth sorrow
and i in foolish pride
forget he sees teh upper
and i the underside..
each dark thread is as needful
in the weavers skillful hand
as the threads of gold and silver
in the pattern he has planned.
there are sooo many great symbols in our faith(cross, chi rho, jesus fish...etc)what is your favorite one? mine is one i newly discovered... it was on the album cover for oh, sleepers new album. its called the "broken pentagram" ...i think the concept is sweet. here is a link that describes it better than i could...
My favorite is the cross made of the three nails. i know it sounds morbid but it reminds me of how much God loves me and all of us.
Just my 2cents
John i think its really cool that you want to be reminded of what Christ has blessed us with. Like you said, when i am staring at a hot guy the thing that brings me back to my senses is my Purity Ring. That ring reminds me that by having unholy thoughts i am throwing away the tiniest bit of my purity.
Theres a sever lacking of good, christian movie(s), but there are some. Thought Id post a thread to discuss the movies that are out.
I live in GA; and in Albany, GA there is Sherwood Pictures. They have produced Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and are beginning production of Courageous this year ... amazing movies
