Please pray for me.

Please pray for my health. Last few days have been ROUGH. I think the medicines are making me sick.... I don't really know what is from Lyme and what is from massive amounts of horrible medicine but I was hardly able to function yesterday. I am stopping the medicine and having blood work done today to see if it is causing my white blood cell count to drop dangerously low (this has happened before).
Anyway, please pray. After 4 years of this, it is hard to keep running this race.
Life is hard but God is good. He is!! He continues to show me His goodness in suffering. He IS faithful.

Praying and reading the word over you...figured it had been rough since you have not been on either blog much....I just took it as a cue...so I have been reading Psalms 118, 119 on behalf of you and your needs.
118:5 In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free.

Hey, Steph. I don't know your thoughts or if you've already looked into homeopathic medicine. A friend of mine today was telling me that her husband had lyme disease several years ago and suffered for a long time (not 4 years, though) before finding a homeopathic doctor who helped him tremendously and he is totally fine now. It's worth a shot, maybe. I'll pray for you all.

We'll also remember you and your family in our prayers, to lift you up in strength and wisdom to the healthcare professionals that they will find a cure for your disease. Your strength already is a great testimony to us :) Blessings!

Steph, was just checking back to see if you had updated about feeling better and "this little light of mine" was playing on your music-so appropriate. He is playing your song for you.

Hi again Steph,

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog...I'm really excited to get to "get to know you" too.

I just wanted to tell you that you have REALLY been on my heart today. I have felt led several times this afternoon to just get alone with God and pray for you. I am certain that I am just one of the MANY warring on your behalf right now...

Romans 8:26-27 “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.”

Love, Amanda

"Then your light will break forth like the dawn, AND YOUR HEALING WILL QUICKLY APPEAR; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: HERE AM I." Isaiah 58:8-9
