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: Asking God to remove your sin (view all shovelquotes)

Now, if any of you are hearing this with the spirit of condemnation hanging over your head, it’s only because you’re trying to hold on to two radically different propositions at the same time. It’s like trying to travel east and west simultaneously. But trying to do the one while believing we are still doing the other is the very thing that leaves us confused and paralyzed. You see, asking God to help you to remove your sin is built upon the assumption that Jesus Christ hasn’t already done it. source
