Taking my own advice to open the Tupperware and share my need for prayer....

I am waiting on some lab work results....I am losing weight while having cut back my exercise and increased sleep. Also a lack of energy.

(I know sounds good...but can be an indicator of serious health issues)

I am also in the process of changing to a different doctor as I didn't like the way my current doc handled my complaints on this issue....Please pray for resolving of this issue..

Thank you for your prayers, Joyce!

*UPATE*
We made the decision yesterday to pass on the new job opportunity and stay right where we are. There was just too much risk involved. That, plus the multiple moves, changing schools, doctors, banks...uprooting the kids from school, band, lessons, sports, friends....leaving my MIL behind for the first year....

We do have some dreams about our future here and there is always the chance we will move somewhere sometime, whether just to a bigger house here or somewhere else. Hubby has leads for other opportunities if he desires to leave the company he's with now. Right now, we are content and at peace. We're going to keep updating our home, to make it how we always dreamed it could be (plus resale value! emoticon ).

I'm just so thankful for God's keeping us right where He wants us for now. Thankful for the peace we finally have.

Thanks for your prayers!

Good morning, Ladies!

Could you please say a prayer for wisdom and for God to reveal His will for my family. It's crunch time and we will need to make a decision about whether Hubby takes this new job offer and we move to Indiana for 1 year and then on to North Carolina if everything goes as planned. We are agonizing over this. So many reasons to stay, so many to go. We just want what God has in store for us. It's pretty scary knowing our future is at stake. There's risk in taking the job since it is a new start up company, but would include a piece of the ownership without any cash layout from us. Investors are already in place. We really need guidance. This is so hard!

Any prayer you can send up for us would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!

Anything less than a 30 day trial for antidepressants is not a full or fair trial...in other words, yes it can take awhile. The doc may also have started you on a lower dose than you will actually need so be sure to follow up with him/her.

Nope, nothing wrong at all with needing meds for depression. Actually, I started meds myself about 2 weeks ago for depression and high blood pressure. I didn't want to be on meds, but if it helps keep me together, then so be it. I just hope it works for me, it seems to be taking longer than I expected to "kick in."

emoticon and prayers for you Jazlynann. I agree with Tina and Joyce. There is absolutely nothing wrong with needing medicine for depression. If the one you are on seems strong, please consider talking to your doctor as there are many types and strengths. emoticon

If my thyroid were removed, I would not feel ashamed of taking synthroid.
If I were diabetic (pancreas not working) I would not be unhappy about taking insulin.

I am depressed...I function better, I think more clearly, my relationships improve when I take my Zoloft.....
I am aware of no place in the Bible that instructs NOT to take medication. Paul even tells Timothy "Take a little wine, for your stomach"

Lifting up prayers, JAZLYNANN! There is no shame in taking medication if it is needed. I had to come to terms with this as well. If it is not having the desired effect, talk to your doctor. There are many options out there. Praying for wisdom, courage, and peace to cover you. May God shine His light in your life!

Hello, Everyone! Please say a prayer for me. I have been very depressed lately and crying a lot. I started taking my meds. again, and feel a little better today, but I really don't like taking pills as they are strong and I don't want to rely on them. Thank you, and God bless. emoticon emoticon

Praying Bekah!

Heavenly Father - I lift this situation up to You. Please place Your healing hands on Bekah's FIL. Give the medical team wisdom and guide their thoughts and their hands as they take care of him. You alone are the Great Healer. May everyone involved feel Your presence today. It is in Your hands. In Jesus' name I pray that Your will be done. Amen.

Thursday, my father-in-law was lifeflighted to our capital from the southeast corner of our state. He went to the local emergency room because his legs were swelling and he was filling up with fluid again. They ran some tests, and his heart enzymes were completely off. They sent him to a heart hospital. Yesterday, they were supposed to do a heart cath and give him adrenaline to get the results they needed so he could have an experimental heart surgery. I haven't heard yet how he did with the heart cath.

We met with our pastor last Saturday morning for 2 1/2 hours. We are also going to a marriage regeneration experience in a few weeks. It's 3 days/4 nights of intensive counseling for marriages in crisis. They only do 4-5 couples at a time so that you get the time you need. Thanks for the continued prayers.

I know y'all are probably sick of me asking, but I need prayer for my marriage. We are at an all time low in this battle. I'm pretty much sleeping on the couch. We are barely civil and divorce has been discussed. I'm at a loss. Every time I feel encouraged something happens to end it quickly. emoticon

*UPDATE* - please keep praying!

We are in the situation with a possible new job for Hubby - out of state (we live in NE OH). After many talks with who would be his new boss, the ideal plan would be for him to go to Indiana for 6-7 months, get things evaluated, renovations started, etc. After that, the plan would be to move the whole family to Beaufort, NC. This could be the answer to many prayers - we've been dreaming of moving to NC for many years now after another job opportunity fell through. It will be a hard 6 months, he wouldn't start until next January. It is about 5-6 hours away so we would be traveling every weekend while he is in IN. We could keep the kids in school, not move mid-year, put the house on the market next spring/summer and head south. My MIL, who we help out quite a bit, would follow us down there. This could be such a wonderful blessing. Some things need to fall into place before anything could work. The new boss guy is planning on buying 10 struggling country clubs and invest in them to turn them around. The one in IN would be the first, and he's still working that deal out while also working on the one in NC, deal #2. We pray that this is God's answer for us. We want to follow His will.
Thanks for praying!

So glad to hear the plans are moving along for your sister Joyce. emoticon

Unfortunately mine aren't moving as I'd like them to. Did not get answers at the meeting on Monday. Had another meeting with the director on Wednesday. She listened and encouraged me to hang in there, but no answers yet. I stayed home today and rested because of lower back pain. Thanks for the prayers y'all.

I want to give you guys an update as I know y'all are praying. Friday was a week since the sped director told me to give her a week. I did not hear from her. emoticon However, my principal talked to me Friday and said the sped director told her a week too and that would be a week today. So, I can count on my principal to push this and get an answer. We have a meeting tomorrow. Several in the group think it will be the answer we are hoping for that I will be full time at the elementary school. I'm hopeful that is what we will hear too, but more than anything I just want God's will. Thanks again for the prayers.

Yep, we are all in agreement. No guilt sweet sister. We trust our doctors because they are the experts. That doesn't mean they always make the right decisions, but it is why we trust them. I had some issues with my first birth and it led to the "woulda...coulda...shoulda" talk in my head. That is straight from the enemy to steal your joy right now. You've got to enjoy this time with your sweet baby and just keep praising God that you both are healthy. emoticon

Agreed...no guilt. It is on the doctor.

Rest and enjoy this special time. Hope you have someone bringing you some meals so you can eat well without a lot of cooking time.

Abby: I can't pray very well at the moment - it's more of a 'scribble' than a proper prayer because I can't find the right words - but God knows our hearts and His Spirit intercedes for us, so I trust that my attempt at prayer for you will still be effective.

Oh, and you're not allowed to feel guilty, OK? You didn't do anything wrong, so don't let the Enemy rob you of the joy and peace which are yours through Jesus.

Tina, I'm praying for your wisdom!

Could you all say a prayer for me? I had a very traumatic birth experience on the 15th although, praise God, we're both ok now. Basically they induced me on the 14th, a week late, and I had to have a medication to dilate me, a folly catheter, pitocin, an epidural in the hopes of further dilation, they broke my water, and that was just the first 18 hours. The next 3 were attempting to push and my doctor came finally and realized something that should have been caught long before, Benjamin was huge and would not pass between my pelvic and tail bones. The doctor tried vacuum delivery but ended up doing a forcep delivery which finally got my 8 pound 12.1 ounce, 21.75 inch long son earth side. I praise God deeply for not letting me know just how bad it was in the moment. They had prepared the labor wing for us to crash after delivery and my baby's heart beat was erratic at best. Right after labor we were both fine but he had a cone head which was painful and had to be re-measured once an hour for the next 12 hours and his blood sugar needed checked that often as well because of his size. Besides a cut and some bruising he is ok. I'm incredibly sore and was sent home yesterday with nothing for pain even though I just asked for 800 mg ibprophen. I know it could have been worse but I feel such guilt right now for not listening to my instincts and pushing for an earlier induction or an ultrasound or something. Benjamin is such a good baby and should have never had to feel such pain...

I have a prayer request and it's about time I brought it here.

My husband has some opportunities open to him for a new job. He loves where he works now, but there is not much room for advancement and he's just about tapped out salary wise. There is a possibility of a regional position but would require lots of travel and it's not beyond the idea stage.

A very good friend who works in NC is starting his own investment company (with some investors) to buy and renovate 8-10 country clubs in the next 5-6 years. Calvin would have a place at the very first club, already being purchased. It is in New Albany, IN. He would go from being a Facilities Maintenance Director here to General Manager there with the responsibility of turning this club around as well as a total renovation. It would also include a bit of ownership in the club. The future there looks like 2-3 years renovating and managing and then a possible move to another club, hopefully in NC. The 2nd club looks like one in Beaufort, NC.

We really want to follow God's leading. It feels like a good time to make the change. It wouldn't happen until early next year - Jan/Feb with us moving after school gets out. It is a 5-6 hour drive from here so we would be seeing Calvin on weekends for a while. We have hoped for quite a few years now to eventually move to NC as soon as a job opened up at Pinehurst CC. We know God's timing is perfect. It is exciting, scary, hopeful, stressful, new...We really need wisdom. Please pray that we will know and recognize God's will and to be at peace when we make the decision.

Thank you ladies!

Dear Lord - please hold Leisa close right now. Her future is in Your hands. I pray for peace and stress relief. I pray that a satisfactory outcome will come about in this work situation. You are Lord God Almighty. You hold everything together. I pray that You would work in Leisa's life right now and bring healing into her heart and mind as she deals with the stress of work and home life. Please cover her in Your peace. It's in Jesus' precious and holy name I pray that Your will be done. Amen.

I have been fretting about a situation for almost a week. It finally occurred to me tonight to bring it to y'all and get some prayers going for it.

I'll try to be brief. Y'all know work has been more stressful than normal this year. I went back to special education because I love the kids. I don't doubt that part. Yes, it is a stressful job, but I love helping them. What has made this year so much harder is that I am only 1/2 time at the elementary school and 1/2 time at the middle school. The work load at both is such that I'm killing myself trying to get it done as it really should be 2 full time positions. Plus I really don't like middle school. Those teachers are saints! That is not my calling.

Okay gotta wrap it up as I said I would be brief. emoticon Last Friday the SPED director came to see me because she had heard how stressed out I am. Thankfully she is also a Christian friend. I cried a lot, but she listened for over an hour. She told me she could not make any promises and to give her a week.

Okay friends...will y'all join me in praying about this as the week is almost up. I want God's will in my life. But can I be honest in saying that the desire of my heart is to be full time at the elementary school? I know there will still be stress, but I really want to just be able to focus on that one school. Thank you friends!

Hi everyone! As some of you know, I am expecting my first baby, a son, any day now. His name is Benjamin and if he's not here by Thursday they are going to strip my membranes and start labor. I'm a bit scared of this whole process and the 2 things that scare me the most are a c-section and Pitocin because that medication makes you go from little if any contractions to 100 on a pain scale and then you stay there until baby is born. I'm trusting in God and I know His will for us is perfect but like everyone fear gets to me sometimes.

Please pray for peace during my wait, a healthy baby and momma, and God's hand to move in all of this. As a cute side note, next Friday, September 2nd, will be the 8 year anniversary of me being saved by Jesus. What a day to possibly have a baby!

You may not be able to but we have an amazing God that can help! Please think about seeing a counselor, and if he won't go with you, go by yourself for awhile. It can't hurt!
