Mat_26:41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Hello dear ones, I just wanted to get on here and ask for a prayer for my health. I have always had different health issues. when I was a child I was heavily vaccinated and malnourished, I have an autoimmune disease or two that I sometimes forget about  😆 There are days when I am absolutely fine, I can do plenty and still feel energized by the end of the day! But sometimes, like for the past few weeks, I feel like I am caring an elephant on my shoulders, everything just seems so hard, everything hurts, even thinking is overwhelming! I used get up at 5 in the morning to have my word time, spend hours reading my bible, cant do it any longer. Nowadays, if I can spare 30 minutes to an hour, that's a great victory for me. I try to have a balance diet and all, I don't want to get too much into perfecting my flesh, but at the same time I want to be able to get on with my daily life and not be hindered too much by those issues. I hope I make sense, sorry if it's too long  😆 This has been my biggest struggle for the past year or so, the passion for the word has dwindled, and I want to get it back! 

Thank you so very much!

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

не хорошо  😦 

Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
 
Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Thank you, brethren!

Matthew, I kinda feel similar to what you have share in your prayer request a few days ago, I've been praying for you too.

And Bendik, thanks for the verses, I looooove the book of Isaiah! And it's nice to see you write in Russian, I think it is improving  😆 

GBY!

Thank you, Kaz! I felt very comforted today was pondering on different verses and things, it must have been because you prayed. 

Love in Christ! Cant wait to see you all in glory!

The flesh is weak indeed sister Eda, I am sorry to hear about your health struggles, I'm no doctor but I have gathered a little experience and knowledge while searching to alleviate my own health problems, if I can be of any help. God bless you sister, you'll be in my prayers.

Will be praying for you sister, I too know the feeling and the battle it can be everyday! 

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. -Ephesians 6:10 

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. -1 Peter 5:9

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. Psalm 34:19

&

20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22

 

Be of good courage sister Eda and keep your eyes focused on the Lord and always stay in His word daily! 30 minutes to an hour is really good! We also have to remember Ecclesiastes 12:12 "... and much study is a weariness of the flesh." the word of God is perfect and infinite and we are imperfect and finite, we can't take in too much perfection all at once 😶.

also, just wanted to add...in my early walk I would wake up excited to see what I can learn! I would spend days researching different issues and things, just lost that child like desire and excitement now it just feels like duty. I hope I make sense   😓

Thank you Eda, I appreciate your prayers too and can so relate to what you are going through right now. I too would wake up super excited to read my Bible and see what the Lord would show me. I would sit and listen to my bible app and read along for hours it would seem. And study all sorts of things. Word studies everything, my husband and I were very zealous for the Things of the Lord. I too don’t know what happened. Slowly getting back to how things used to be. This flesh wants to do everything but!! 😔
