Sorry For the Lack of My Presence Online Lately

I want to apologize to those who do follow me for my lack of presence lately. I have really been in a lot of physical pain.

I have also received the worst medical report from my doctor and well,  to be completely honest, I have been grieving the loss of my life as others continue to move forward as though my life does not or has never existed. But even though I feel this way, I want to respond as God would have me to respond..

While it is true that I have not had any encouragement for most of my life in any area of my life, I realize that humans can never be what I need them to be because we live in a Fallen World still ruled by the enemy. So I will be my own Encourager.

But I can come right out and ask for what we need, and then trust all the consequences to God.

1. I need handwritten encouragement in the form of cards as I am trying to build myself an Encouragement file.

2. I need those who are able in our lives to come forward and to meet the needs we have that they are able to meet.
          1. A Comfortable bed. Maybe you cannot do this for us but you may know someone who can. So just getting the word out would help us.
          2. Encouragement for my husband and myself as we are, in reality, facing this alone with the Exception of God being for us. A Daily visit or an email would be really nice.
          3. A minivan as ours is no longer truly reliable to get us from point A to point B. This is where we have had to trust God for our safety. I need reliable transportation to get me to my doctor's appointments.
          4. Prayer for numerous Breakthroughs in our lives. Finances, Medical Insurance for myself, For our Marriage to be strengthened, For My Healing, For God to place people in our lives who will truly be there for us and who are truly for us and not just with us, For my Major Depression and PTSD,
       

These just to name a few of our most urgent needs.

I know that God has a good plan for my future!
Regardless of how dark and dank it feels right now.

Until Next Time,
Karen
