Faith is above all else in the world. It's as I have always said, no one can take it away and in the end it's all we have.

So true...Jesus said, "Come to me all you who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest".
Back in the 60's a young girl named Joni Erickson dove into a lake and hit her head on something solid. She was 17 at the time. Friends noticed her floating, seemingly lifeless. They pulled her in and resusitated her. She was mostly paralyzed from the neck down. She could have curled up in a ball and withdrawn from life. Instead she learned to paint holding a painbrush between her teeth. She felt sure that God was going to heal her. When it became evident that was not His plan, she soldiered on, eventually getting married and starting a foundation called "Joni and Friends", using the money from the sales of her painting and speaking engagements. Yes, God used her despite her severe injury.

How many of us could have risen up and taken control of our life, given such a horrific injury. Your life is over then the Lord calls you home.

You are so right! I remember when I was living with my Mom in my 30's and we didn't have enough money for the house rent. I asked Mom, "What are we going to do?" She just said, "We are going to sit here and pray! God will provide!" Sure enough, the next day an unexpected check came in the mail that was plenty to pay the rent! Some company had been in a law suit and since we had purchased some of their goods, we were reimbursed and just in time!
Keep praying! It will work out somehow.
