In some dire need of prayer.
I have developed Tinnitus in my left ear about 8 months ago. Mostly a small issue, but some days now it can get so bad it can really mess with my emotions or one night it prevented sleep.
My insurance should be straitened out next week so I can go back to my ENT. Problem is, Tinnitus is a tricky issue with only half cures. As in it seemingly gets cured if its from certain issues, but other issues there is no cure just aid....
I am believing God for it to completely go away.

The tinnitus is now in both ears, which is weird since I wear sound protection....
And I have a weird feeling in my brain, so I am wondering if I am not feeling well and I do got an infection again, or if something crazier is up. I can hear high pitched squeals every once in awhile above the normal ring like my brain just fried or something. Many other issues with how my head feels as well
For the first time in a long time I am a little worried. Getting to see a doc now though is gona be irritating and rough...

Im praying for you Zero, and everyone is in my prayers. So much heartache and trials and tribulations.
Jesus never said the ride would be easy, only that He will be with us. I would rather have him with me in a storm than be without Him.
Zero, you may want to look at getting some hydergine for the tinnitus, it's actually prescribed for that, plus it has some cognitive boosting effects as well. Mention that to your doctor to see what he says.

It has been a while since I have visited here.
Things were picking up from my girlfriends chemo, until recently where the doctor stopped giving her 1 last treatment.
Recently she picked a virus that gave her a minor flu.
From her recently blood work it seems that her white count and platelets are low. We are worried that it may be a relapse. Please, please, please offer her your prayers.

Well the dentist put me on Zpack for my infection issues. I have an abscessed tooth where the nerves died, its infected. So getting that other tooth pulled didnt do the trick, I have kinda an ear infection thing going gin.
Honestly I have had infection in my head/body for a couple years now...
If this 5 days of Zpack dont work, I am going to be quite worried...anti-biotics dont seem to do well in me now...

I love reading this thread. Its a little inspiration sometimes. Being in college, my faith is tested on a daily basis. I pray every night that my faith remain strong and I pray the same for everyone else and to let Jesus will be done.
Thanks to all on here and praying for anyone in need.

The Quilt Holes
As I faced my Maker at the last judgment, I knelt before the Lord along with all the other souls.
Before each of us laid our lives like the squares of a quilt in many piles; an angel sat before each of us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry that is our life.
But a s my angel took each piece of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was. They were filled with giant holes. Each square was labeled with a part of my life that had been difficult, the challenges and temptations I was faced with in everyday life. I saw hardships that I endured, which were the largest holes of all.
I glanced around me. Nobody else had such squares. Other than a tiny hole here and there, the other tapestries were filled with rich color and the bright hues of worldly fortune. I gazed upon my own life and was disheartened.
My angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air.
Finally the time came when each life was to be displayed, held up to the light, the scrutiny of truth. The others rose; each in turn, holding up their tapestries. So filled their lives had been. My angel looked upon me and nodded for me to rise.
My gaze dropped to the ground in shame. I hadn't had all the earthly fortunes. I had love in my life and laughter. But there had also been trials of illness, and false accusations that took from me my world, as I knew it. I had to start over many times. I often struggled with the temptation to quit, only to somehow muster the strength to pick up and begin again. I spent many nights on my knees in prayer, asking for help and guidance in my life.. I had often been held up to ridicule, which I endured painfully, each time offering it up to the Father in hopes that I would not melt within my skin beneath the judgmental gaze of those who unfairly judged me.
And now, I had to face the truth.. My life was what it was, and I had to accept it for what it was.
I rose and slowly lifted the combined squares of my life to the light.
An awe-filled gasp filled the air. I gazed around at the others who stared at me with wide eyes.
Then, I looked upon the tapestry before me. Light flooded the many holes, creating an image, the face of Christ. Then our Lord stood before me, with warmth and love in His eyes. He said, 'Every time you gave over your life to Me, it became My life, My hardships, and My struggles.
Each point of light in your life is when you stepped aside and let Me shine through, until there was more of Me than there was of you.'
May all our quilts be threadbare and worn, allowing Christ to shine through!
God determines who walks into your life...it's up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay and who you refuse to let go.'
I thought I learned my lesson with this last summer, but I still find myself trying to have things MY way in relationships. It's insane. Take it from me, just give your painful, messy life to God and give yourself a break.

I'm about to crash out after my w/o, but wanted to tell you guys I love each and every one of you and continue to pray for you. Seeing my buddies here on AM and in this thread, men who have shared their ups and downs with me, and I have shared my life with you too, it just makes me very thankful.
In between sets tonight, I heard a preacher say something on the radio. It was Adrian Rodgers, and he said "heaven is not a reward for the righteous, rather it's a gift for the guilty." We often think we only get to heaven if we're good enough, but that's not how it works. We're saved for good works, but good works is not what saves us. I know things are tough for many of us, but don't give up on God because He's not giving up on us!

I've been remiss lately in my involvement with this thread. I hope all is well with each of you. I hope we all seek to internalize what it means to be anxious for nothing; that is a challenge, especially in this economy.

"But Abraham replied, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.'

Here's an old one (5+ years...wow) that I thought may inspire some introspection and reflection as well as some confession and candor:
"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."

If you don't know GOD, don't make stupid remarks!!!!!!
A United States Marine was taking some college courses
between assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq
and Afghanistan . One of the courses had a professor who
was an avowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU.
One day the professor shocked the class when he came in.
He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "GOD, if you are real, then
I want you to knock me off this platform... I'll give you exactly 15 min."
The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes
went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am GOD, I'm still waiting."
It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got
out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-****ed him;
knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold.
The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.
The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there
looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to,
noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked,
"What in the world is the matter with you? Why did you do that?"
The Marine calmly replied,
"GOD was too busy today protecting America 's
soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and
act like an idiot. So He sent me."
The classroom erupted in cheers!

Guys please pray for our brothers and sisters in Batak, Indonesia...I beleive extremists/Islamists shattered their Church just recently, and now they were threatened and attacked by an angry mob of 300 or so muslims that were threatening them and trying to stop them for PRAYING, on the field that has their shattered church. The Christians surprisingly were protected to some extent by the police but the rioters finally broke threw and injured some of the people who were just trying to pray.
Please do stand with our brethren in some prayer and we can pray that God turns the hearts of the extremists, change the hearts of the government and give these Christians better protection and also a new Church back, I pray that their Church may be built again without having to face death threats and violence.
Love all of you bro's here, thanks so much guys. God bless you all.

Fellas I have been very busy but I pop in here to AM just to read this thread and all of you are an inspiration to me. I am praying for you all and wish you all well. I continue to struggle with my flesh and am praying for all the guys who are tempted by big breasted tattooed she-devils. God Bless you all.

34 "Be careful. If you aren't, your hearts will be loaded down with wasteful living, drunkenness and the worries of life. Then the day the Son of Man returns will close on you like a trap. You will not be expecting it. 35 That day will come upon every person who lives on the whole earth.
36 "Always keep watching. Pray that you will be able to escape all that is about to happen. Also, pray that you will not be judged guilty when the Son of Man comes."
