Hope never fails

Okay so my pastor charged us yesterday with reading the whole new testament.  Well he suggested in a month, but I said I will promise to read it :-) So as I was going through Romans today, a couple of verses just stuck out. 

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope.And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:3-5
I have been having lots of pain in my hands, wrist, and shoulders.  Last time I went to the doctors, my RA levels were elevated.  The pain is more than I have ever had and stops me from sleeping very good.  I asked two ladies at church to specifically pray at night for me.  They must of, because as I went to sleep I agreed with them for no pain.  No pain is what I received.

These verses are what my spirit needed to hear.  All these "things" that I go through are to fine tune me to be at the right hand of Jesus one day.

Lord, thank you for taking away the pain that has stricken me for weeks.  I will be joyful in all that is to come; sickness or heath.  I thank you for Wayne's job, his growth in you, and the healing which you will provide me.  You are my creator, my Lord, my healer, my Prince of Peace...I love you and ask that you bless those two ladies and anyone else who prays for us.  In Jesus' Name, Amen.
