First, I was broadsided by a truck when I was driving away from college, where I am taking a second year German course, as a prerequiste for my PhD. The hit wasn’t hard, but I am fragile, suffer from RA, fibromyalgia, and I had a bad whiplash in 1985, which has always been an issue. I am in a lot of pain, please pray I can get the right treatment for my aches, pains, dislocated shoulder and messed up lower back. And for God to touch me.
Which brings me to my second request. I have prayed about going to theological school to do a PhD in theology. I have contacted the Registrar, and I have all my prerequisites in place. But, now with all the pain, I am wondering if I should go or not. (I have a Master of Divinity, a BA and a teaching certificate). I’m not getting any younger - if I don’t get started out it soon, it will be too late. Please pray God will make it clear if I am to continue in this direction.
Further, I have to commit to one path, either practical theology, using theology and the Bible to help people, or just studying the Bible (NT) deeper and deeper. While studying deeper and deeper sounds like a dream come true, on the other hand, I know God has called me to help people who are hurting and broken and DS has been a big part of that, in the past. Please pray that if God wants me to study again, he will let me know which track I am to follow.
Thank you and God bless!

Four years ago He paired me with a man that was truly been a blessing in my life. We were both broken and needed someone. Since my husband has been in my life the blessings just kept coming. For the last year, my husband has gone thru spurts of binge drinking. He was an...
The Freedom to Let GoWhen you forgive someone do you feel like you’re letting them off the hook? Do you feel like you’re making an excuse for their behavior? Contrary to what we may think, forgiveness isn’t any of these things. It’s not saying that what’s wrong is okay. It’s not forgetting hurt feelings. Forgiveness is extending grace. It’s commanded by God, and it’s something...
