Humans find themselves “up the river without a paddle” when they least expect it. We recently visited a friend that encountered some very difficult medical issues. So we went around to talk to some of the local experts and they all suggested the same advice!
Many said simply, “Do what the doctors tell you to do.” A doctor added, “You’d be amazed at the number of people that refuse to follow medical advice and find themselves further “up the river without a paddle.”
Our homeless friend, Bob said, “Tell ‘JR’ to stay in the present moment and work on getting well from his medical problem. God will take care of the rest.”
Another friend told us, “Tell him to stay in the present moment and work on his recovery. It is amazing what a human being can do after he’s paralyzed…”
Get God To Help With Your Problem
God, I offer myself to Thee-
To build with me
and to do with me as Thou wilt.
Relieve me of the bondage of self,
that I may better do Thy will.
Take away my difficulties,
that victory over them may bear witness
to those I would help of Thy Power,
Thy Love, and Thy Way of life.
May I do Thy will always!
Thank you, God, Amen!

Our Thanks to Father Benedict J. Groeschel C.F.R. — His books can be very helpful if you are seeking God in your life ….. He helped me more than he ever knew… He also suffered a lot his last few years…
Prayer and Meditation for Sunday, July 31, 2016 — Are we striving to be rich in what matters to God? (The Book of Ecclesiastes simply reminds us that everything in this world passes away except spiritual reality.)
