You Know we are all here for a reason. God does not make mistakes, he teaches lessons.
God answers prayers not in the way we Want them, but in the way that is Best for us. We do not need to understand why he does things the way he does. We need to trust that he does them for the Right reasons. When we pray to God we pray for what we want the way we want it. Do we not understand that we need to trust him and pray Thy will be done, Not mine. Then we need to truely mean it. When I pray at night I add a second prayer. In that prayer I thank God for all of the wonderful blessings he gives to me. My Kids and Grandkids, My family and All of my friends, Those I have now and might have in the future. Now being human I cry and complain about my health and the pain I am in. I too tend to forget to leave it in Gods hands when I hurt. Thank You all for the reminder. Thank You God For All of the Friends on DC. Amen.

I can attest to the same! back in 2006 i collapsed on my bedroom floor and was there for 5 days and nights due to a kidney infection. No water, no food, no meds. I was in a semi comatose state and could have died at any time. I did revive on the 6th day and my son found me not long after and INSISTED I go to ER. (I didn't think I was that bad. I thought only 1 night had passed). Kidneys had completely shut down, and I had to go on dialysis.

Praying for you BOTH!

Thank you for your prayers Short stuff!

There IS more to the story. When I was on dialysis, I really was very depressed. I thought my life was essentially over. The mother of my sons had divorced me 4 yrs earlier, and I couldn't find a lady friend in the mean time. I felt that no woman would be interested in a disabled fella on dialysis. I saw no possibility of joy or happiness in my future. I had thought about stopping the dialysis treatments and just let the poison accumulate and kill me. I had even spoken to the social worker about it. She said that she understood and that nobody would blame me if I did that.

But I chose to continue because I didn't want to be a bad example to my sons when times got tough for them.

I got stronger and eventually my kidneys started working well enough that I could stop treatment without danger. God blessed me there. Then God blessed me again in Nov 2007 when a lady saw my profile on Dating4Disabled and sent it to her friend. The friend emailed me on the lady's recommendation and we struck up a relationship and fell in love. She was "Jem" who I frequently write about. We married and had a very happy life together for months. We were God's blessings to each other, and she changed my life tremendously, even after she passed from this life.

I was, and continue to be blessed by our time together.

like you i stop breathing and he brought me back i allways asked him why didn't you just take me . not your time. tell that you were given a second chance. tell your story that it will help some one else. i've tried and i wonder if it works. i am so thankful to be alive some many have lost their lives but he keeps me here.
