For the Lord to alllow me to work, or to heal me so I can work
Bryan and other brothers have some recent videos regarding work and laziness, and I have an unusual situation and I need prayer regarding it.
I have schizophrenia and have been legally declared disabled and can not drive for various reasons, and I receive social security money each month. But I don't want that to be forever.
The only work that I do at the moment, because of my mental status, is volunteer tech support online. I am very good at that, and am one of their hardest workers on the leaderboard and I want to use that talent elsewhere, for example, at a local big chain electronics store - where I think I'd fit in very well with my talents regarding electronics.
The other talent the Lord has blessed me with is recording events and making them DVDs and Blu Rays for a high school I used to go to, two times a year, with custom disc labels and very complex menu systems such as scene selection, unlike the professionals that do less quality work and charge them so much more, compared to me. Note that I went to this school, so that's different than doing this for a school I have no ties to, in the eyes of social security (I believe). My dad has bought me professional equipment to do this even better over the years I've been doing this for them.
And about making money, there's a problem here regarding making money because if I make too much I will be taken off of social security and medicaid and I will not be able to afford my medicines - so it has to be a thing I can count on doing for the rest of my life because I can't just get better and start working and then lose social security and then get worse and go back on social security, it took me years to get approved.
I don't know if this is a temporary place that I'm stuck in or if the Lord will keep me like this for the rest of my life - or until the catching away - but I would like your prayers to either have me be healed from my sicknesses and allow me to work or allow me to work somehow with my condition.
Ill keep you in my prayers brother Joshua. I know the conviction part hurts... I posted in another forum about obtaining a job, it didn't go well at all (well at least I got job interview experience lol) but all jokes aside, it hurts especially because I'm young, 23 and live with my mom, but this isn't about me, it's about you. I'll pray that the Good Lord will help you out on your condition and if it's in His will, it will be awesome to know/hear that you are working out of home, and to know that you can still afford all your necessities. God speed brother, and may the Lord direct thy paths!
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Brother Josuha God has promised his children a sound mind I understand that people can have serious brain damage etc not debating that, but judging by your ability to coherently talk to us on the forums here and share things I would say you need to address this problem with the Lord and directly ask and plead with him to give you soundness of mind, this is just taking a shot in the dark but could it possibly be the medications you are taking are in fact keeping you sick and messing around with your mind? I'm not some Doctor but I do know we have a Great Physician in Heaven please don't scoff at that Jesus has changed my thinking I used to be really whacked out my mind and mass confused I was a mess and also when i was younger the Docs had me on a host of different pills for ADHD; no more of that posion its all gone out of my system and my thinking is much clearer. The only other Advice I can give you is seriously research and dig into natural health cures i think there are certain herbs called adaptogens that may help, but also look into detoxing all the chemicals built up in your body. Here is a verse that could easily apply to Modern Medical Doctors of today and all the pill pushing they do Acts 8:9 - But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one-MDs white shirts. All continue to pray for you in this.
