One of My Thorns

A couple of days ago, I published [A Thorn in the Flesh], which touched upon what the Apostle Paul was subjected to, and my own personal experience with the like.  As with most of the things I have been given to say by our Heavenly Father, it was not what far too many in the Christian community wants to hear.  For the primary emphasis of the piece was on the absolute truth of the matter truly being that there is nothing we can do to cleanse ourselves of unrighteousness—other than asking for His will to be done in our lives.

Ah, but aside from being assigned at least one demon to keep reminding me of just how much I am not good enough to be a recognized servant of the Lord God Almighty, I have been subjected to very poor physical health since 1993.  The video below is a trailer to a movie that has been made about what I have been suffering from, and a very detailed article about the disease can be read [here].  All of this was brought to my attention yesterday by my very dear friend, [Adullamite], who will undoubtedly deny ever knowing me if you would ask him about it.

After watching the trailer, I must admit that those in the movie may have been (and be) a whole lot sicker than I am.  For the simplest way of explaining what I have felt like for a little over 19 years now is that I have had a fairly severe case of the flu, with little alleviation of the symptoms from one day to the next, but I have never felt like I needed to be admitted to a hospital.  Of course, I have been told on many an occasion that I really am too dumb to die.

Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Adullamite!!! Yep, I just knew it! Does this count as a prophecy?
