PROPER PRAYER

Image
"God, I really need this thing done. I know that you can do anything so I am asking you to do this for me. I know you want to bless me. In Jesus name, Amen."

What's wrong with this prayer?

Read it carefully and answer this question via a Facebook comment. I want to see where our heads spiritually.

REMOVE THE BANDAGE!

Image
Ever since I began NoMoreSclerosis I had to clarify the name. I never said or meant no more scars. Scars are just reminders that you have been healed. You don’t have an open wound anymore you only have the scar. You all know the story and if you don’t I’ll send you a link about the details of spiritual/physical sclerosis. I said earlier that a scar is a reminder. Let’s offer more clarity on the scar. Dictionary.com defines a scar as a mark left by a healed wound, sore, or burn. It is a lasting aftereffect of trouble, especially a lasting psychological injury resulting from suffering or trauma. The wound is sometimes aided with a bandage but there is no need to keep a bandage on the scar once the wound is healed. It defeats the purpose and it just takes up space. Same thing is true for a psychological injury. I can understand not being sociable when you are just getting over an emotional event but the bandage has to be removed in this situation also. You can’t just stay at home or isolat…

DIVINE SOCIAL SECURITY

We live in a crazy world and a lot of things go on around us. Some of us can handle the ups and downs of trials and some of us can’t. What’s the difference? It’s a matter of social security. (I’m not talking about what comes out of your check… the real thing.)
When I say social security what do I actually mean? Let’s do some word dissection so you can see where I am going with this. First, let’s look at security. What is security? Dictionary.com defines security as freedom from danger, risk, etc. To be secure is defined as (being) in safe custody or keeping. When you are secure and you have security you are free from danger and you are in safe keeping.
Social means living or disposed to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation. Unless you live in a cave or stay isolated from others you will be socially involved with people, sometimes voluntarily or involuntarily. We are social with friends. We are social with co-workers. That’s a social experienc…

To the Father of My Girls...

This post is dedicated to my husband who asked me a question out of the blue today. He asked, "Baby, how you doing... for real?" I haven't been anywhere and I haven't told him any bad news but his question was so relevant today.
I answered him like I usually do, "I'm good baby." He stared at me and then said, "I want you to take care of yourself baby. I want you to be happy, stress free... I want you healthy more than anything in this world." Multiple Sclerosis came in my life at the age of 24 and as I grew as a wife with many complications. Through the ups and downs of life my husband and I have been there for each other. We have grown together in so many ways.
You can tell when someone really knows you. There is no need to say much because how you feel is understood without saying a word. I am honored and blessed that I have that relationship with my husband. I got times when I smile and try to hide my pain but I cannot hide it from my other h…

Truth:

This week is FINISHED! TGIF!

I can't put enough exclamation marks to show how happy I am that today is Friday. This was one of those weeks... you know... the ones that seem ongoing with no end in sight. Multiple sclerosis reared its ugly head and tried to discourage me but that was not possible. So, the enemy tries to affect my family. We got over that one too.

I am telling you this because it is important to know that ALL OF US HAVE OUR DAYS. There will always be light at the end of the tunnel. As sure as it began it will end and it is not our job to worry about it. It feels good to take it to GOD in prayer and leave it, it meaning everything, at his throne.

Let God have it because he can handle it better than us. Thanks to everyone who keeps me in their conversations with God. It is soooo appreciated. Blessings. -Yada
