“What? Are you giving up? Is it that bad?”
No, but the Lord wants me to let you know that He has heard your many petitions, He’s on it and will take it from here.
“So, we don’t need to pray for you, then?”
Actually, I need you to pray even more fervently, “wrestle in prayer” if you have to, that God’s FULL PURPOSE for me will be accomplished!! -that NOTHING and NO ONE (including me) would get in His way!
“But how are you doing, really?”
As Paul says in 2 Cor. 4, “the outward man is wasting away but the inward man is renewed day-by-day.” My body continues to grow weaker but I’ve never felt more strongly the Presence and burden of the Lord.
“And what about your healing?
God’s Spirit has borne witness in me that complete healing is GUARANTEED! How, when, and where are questions to which He simply replies, “My supernatural infusion of grace is yours and that is all you need today.” (2 Cor 12:8-10)
Join me in thanking the One who does all things well!
“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed . . . ” 2 Corinthians 9:8
