STRONG ENOUGH BY MATTHEW WEST
I hope this gets to you and what I tell you can bring comfort to you and your friend. I know how your friend feels. I was listening to a christain radio show 28 years ago. They were telling a story of how when people start feeling uncomfortable in situations and that they started to pray the Lords prayer or Psalm 23 & that the things that made them uncomfortable would fade or go away. Two nights later I had the same sensation as your friend as I was being held down and a very evil darkness started covering my room, I couldnt move. I remebered the stories I had heard,and began praying in my head as I could not speak. I woke up n it was still going on i kept praying and i woke up again... this is weird. I kept waking into a continuing dream , I woke up several times I cant remember how many, but I kept praying when I was finally able to verbally speak I woke up for real. This has happened to me throughout my life the last episode was in 2004.I know that they can happen anytime but it has also helped me to keep my faith and belief in our Lord strong. I pray that it will never happen again but you never know. I have fought with demons several times in my life and only with the name of Jesus Christ have I been protected. I have seen angels and demons fight over me and always Jesus has been there even when I had totally given up and had decided I did not want to live any more. I found myself at a 4-square church , I had no idea how I had gotten there but Jesus was there and He touched me as never before. Im sharing this with you as I want to let you know thru my life no matter how bad things got Jesus is always there. I thank Him for all the good and the bad as it has made me stronger in my relationship with Him and the faith I know that will never leave on His end. Yes, I have turned my back on Him but, He has Never turned from me. Anyway I am telling you this that prayer and faith in Jesus will help your friend and I send my prayer to her and you, that you may be a comfort and a helping hand from Jesus to support her thru these episodes as they are terrifying. But tell her please to keep holding onto Jesus and she will get stronger with Jesus beside her to fight this.I truly believe this as I have been there. God Bless you both and may the blood of Jesus cover you both protecting and giving comfort to you both. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
You are in my prayers. Try to contact your loan serviced and request an income contingent. It means your loans will be based on your income. Please look into it.
May our Almighty Father God bless and keep you and your family. I pray for God's healing hand to be upon your son.
Hey... i think i get that too sometimes,if it the same thing, and i've had the whole stress tests run. Mine comes and goes and can last from anywhere from 5 mins to an hour started years ago, then they said it might be panick attacks, the only thing iv'e found that helps is that yoga stretch... i don't know the name but if i interlock my fingers and raise them straight up over my head and then stretch my arms forward and reach down to my toes all the while keeping my fingers interlocked and hold at my toes it brings relief and the pain goes away
Praying for relief for you!!!
I hope and pray that God will open Penn's eyes, soften his heart to know, really know, how much Jesus loves him! He mentioned religion as the way to God, its relationship with God. Hes a very sincere person but that's not enough its who you know. Jesus is the way, not another way. God bless you all.
Thank you for your prayers. The pregnancy has ended. We of course are sad and wondering why. Pray for our faith and peace. Thank you
Hi my brothers and sisters asking special prayer for GODS strength and provision homeless at 65 in NYC and feeling abandoned and exhausted.GOD richly bless you brother Danny
All of us here at SOS Radio are praying. Like the last person said, you're not alone.
I suffered for six years with as you say a mysterious illness. I saw doctor after doctor and they only threw medication after medication at me. I found a doctor in Coeur D' Alene, ID that after only two visits diagnosed me correctly and after about 18 months I feel better than I have in about 10 years. I praise God for him daily as my quality of life was getting worse and worse and now I am regaining my health and therefore happiness.
His website is www.allertouch.com. He is not a conventional doctor, but a strong Christian man who has dealt with his own issues. He does things very differently, which I love as I have lost all faith in conventional medicine.
I hope this helps. I will be praying for you!
Meghan... I want to encourage you that you can find a way to cope... I don't know what you issues are so i am gonna tell you what mine are. I can hear my thoughts and they come in the voices of people i know. At first it was like whispers and i became very paranoid and suspicious of everyone around me. My mind was literally telling myself exactly what i thought my friends would say. I had a Great friend who was Christian (Gone to be with the Lord) and she had always said whenever I had a problem... any problem, what is rational... real? So here i am 10 years ago homeless with three kids riding a bus and I quickly glance at a sign for about one second, and I hear exactly what the sign says in my head, so me i glance around the bus trying to see who saw me look at the sign... my mind tells me they knew and looked away. so know i got this figured out! i'm gonna get some sunglasses... God provides them, and so dark i know that no one can see where i'm looking and i still heard it. there i get it a little but i still don't know how to shut it down, I find myself just like people you can see today walking down the street screaming and yelling yet no one's there and they aren't wearing a bluetooth. i moved halfway across the country and it was still there. We had a home and we had a TV and they disappeared when i would concentrate on TV. i met a new friend who kept telling me "you will be ok, your a good mom, how can i help" she said it so often that those words were what i started to hear. she hooked me up with a syke who didn't want to just medicate me she explained to me that the human brain has over 200,000 thoughts a minute and i hear many of my subconscious thoughts... the ones people take for granted like when your driving down the street and see a car turning and need to step on the brake, i hear marti a car is turning in front of you step on the brake now... the whole trip. i have been able to for many years, when it started i thought i would never be ok again, now it is just excess stress that triggers it and i can still have a bad day. God has opened my eyes and given me coping strategies and I pray He opens your eyes and gives you coping strategies. God please provide a beginning point of healing.
May the Lord be your sheppard during this time, and be your rest as well. God Bless your family.. Find comfront in knowing that we serve an almighty God, his love his forever. I pray the Lord will heal your son from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet.
want to see the hobbit so badly!!
I am praying for you.
"Beauty of simplicity" is a great song you guys could play more often.
I listened to it a couple times a while ago when driving to work in the morning and really put me in a good whorshiping-God-all-day-long mood.
Thanks for the comments guys! We appreciate the feedback and honest discussion!
I am sure this would be Our Father's desire for you to quit these harmful things, so keep praying for His Holy Spirit to give you strength to persevere. I am praying for you now.
First off,Scott,I really wanted to call in on this,but I am a heavy steel fabricator and the background noise would have been a little rough for radio.
While I understand Jeff's opinion,I do not agree.
There is no need to 'dumb down'scripture to reach *anyone*,period.The apostles were not exactly merit scholars.
Under the guise of being "missional",there are atrocities being committed behind the pulpit.
I am not sure where the movement started but there is a surplus of pastors,youth pastors,etc that seem to think the only way to reach the skinny-jeans generation is to use carnal music,dress,language,and example.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Using the law of diminishing returns,if it takes carnal attributes to *reach* someone,what do you think it will take to *keep* them?The answer?......MORE.
I prefer to use the example of counterfeit currency.Employees are not trained on *bad* currency,they are trained on *good* currency,only then do they move on to discerning between the two.
If you know whats good,bad is pretty easy to distinguish.There is plenty of *bad* out there,very little needs to be added,particularly from "positive message"movies.
While I have struggled through most of my life with multiple addictions,a particularly troubling childhood and too numerous-to-mention poor life choices,God has redeemed me.For what I am yet unclear,but I thank Him for my wife and children who both know and love Him,and for life *in* Him of which I remain unworthy.
Walk humbly with your God,
PS If you want to read this on-air,I am fine with that,if you wish to e-mail that is fine also,but please be patient as I am not much of a computer person.
Thank you for your words of encouragment. I do believe God has a plan for me. As for my previous prayers, my son did get married and the other prayers still need prayers. As we are blessed each day, please continue to pray for our, for you are in my prayers.
I've been praying for you ever since I heard this on the radio. You're not alone.
Thank you for your prayers. Holly made it through the 16 hour surgery. They removed some colon and her uterus. She is doing very well in her recovery. Thank you so much and God Bless You.
Tears of gratitude. Thank you!
Thank you for the blessings you give with a loving heart.
I think it's a matter of who we are serving. Are we trying to serve and please the world? Are we trying to serve, please and honor God? You can't do both.
Our society has become so desensitized and that line keeps getting pushed and pushed and the lines have been beyond blurred. Movies, television and even the magazines on the stands in the Walmart check out look completely different then 20+ years ago and it keeps getting worse.
Reality? Why does this have to be our reality? Because Hollywood says it is? We can meet people where they are at, tell a good story and dare I say even entertain without abandoning our moral standards.
Shadow Hills Baptist Church one block west of Vegas Drive and Buffalo. Despite it's name, and having been a Roman Catholic for thirty years, this church, pastor and ministries have taught my family more in three years than the Catholic church did in the past thirty. I have an eleven yr old and three yr old, they love it. It's about relationships, not religion. They're website is Shadowhills.org. check it out.
I just wanted to update everyone....I was just released from the hospital a few days ago. I was admitted for chest pressure and labored breathing. They did a stress test which came back fine and a number of blood tests which ruled out a multitude of things. They also attempted a spinal tap twice and were unsuccessful. They wanted to make a third attempt but decided it would be too dangerous considering I have a condition called Chairi Malformation. It is suspected I may have MS, but has not yet been confirmed. I have become weaker,but try to do what I ca do when I can do it to stay some what active....EVERYTHING I do has become a process. I have to rest often, and my husband has to do many thigs for me. PLEASE, PLEASE pray for some sort of answers on my next doctors appointment which is comig up (1/16)
