Karen and I have been sick for some time now and wondering when we will be healed. We both have different ailments but have kept us down for quite some time. People around us see and know that we are sick and try to help by telling us we need to bring our problems to God and lay them at his feet. Oftentimes when we are sick we don’t want to hear what we already know. But it’s extremely important to rely on God in every aspect of our lives. We need to be on our hands and knees through every decision that we make every illness that we have and every great experience or happy moment that goes on. Often times when we are going through great times we tend to not have such a prayerful life because there’s nothing for us to complain about. That’s when the devil trips us up is when we are not plated with the armor of God. When that unexpected thing happens that brings us down we forget that we need to bring it to God so he can help us through. He is the one that gives us the strength to get through what this world has to offer us. So please remember that in all circumstances we need to be on our knees giving our selves to God. 1Thessalonians 5: 16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
