Thank you for your concern, and please pray for me

– Not a question about the Bible, I’m just concerned about your well being, although I’ve never met you, I’ve always thanked God for you and you’ve been what I call a great role model of how to keep in step with Christ in my trust God daily walk. I hope that you’re well.

– I am grateful for the many blessings of your posts and your blogs. I hope you return again soon but it is all up to His plan. … Still missing your blog and still praying for you.

Thank you both for your kind words and for your concern for me. I am doing all right. Perhaps I will have the opportunity to share the full story at some point, but let me say for now that I am recovering from severe exhaustion. I am making slow but steady progress, thank God, but I am still looking at a long recovery. However, I am now at least able to moderate and reply to comments, and I do plan to resume writing posts to answer readers’ questions at some point. In the meantime, I would ask you to pray for me, that as I am careful to rest and recover, God would restore my strength, health, and energy. Please also pray that in this quieter season of life, I would meet God in new and deeper ways. Thank you so much.

  1. Hi, I’m really heartened to read that you are making progress. Will keep you in my prayers. As someone who has been dealt with a sudden onset of subacute thyroiditis leading to hypothyroidism since a jab in Aug 2021 and making progress slowly since then, I feel for you. As someone who follows your blog, I just want to thank you for sharing your life and knowledge of Christ with us. I know you are loved and taken care of by our Lord. May full recovery be on the horizon this year.
