God With Skin On

Submitted by theshovel

If you’re like me, dealing with an invisible God often leaves me wondering where He is, especially as I sit in the chair I’m now confined to. Why doesn’t He come and visit me? Why does He seem to have left me on my own as I struggle with this damned affliction that renders my body almost useless? But, in truth, I am not left alone. His hands have continued to touch me on a daily basis, and His love has showered me with grace and mercy from many different directions. I am a man who has been blessed. It won’t stop me from wishing I would come out of this, nor will it stop the tears that often overwhelm me. But I know what it is to experience God with skin on.

Hi Jim,

 You are not alone. Just want to say that I love you in Christ and want to thank you again for the blessing you have been to me.

 I ,all to well, understand the feeling of abandonment and emptiness that can overcome us.

Have no fear,trust in God. The disillusionment  can be very crippling. May the Lord comfort you in your time of need. It sucks, big time. being in this body of death.

In my prayers, Arnold

I just had a lump removed from under my arm a few weeks ago, I am also defective. Starting to have pieces removed from me now. LOL!

Random Shovelquote: The living side of the grave (view all shovelquotes)

there is no advice in this world – even if it comes from a Bible verse or a preacher’s sermon – that can produce God’s work within you. Oh, it might make you appear more spiritually productive, but the working of God doesn’t come from the practical side of the grave … but from the living side that has risen past it. When I tell you that Christ is your life, I’m telling you about the one and only present-tense reality that causes you to live as one who is truly alive in this world. source
