Romans 7:14-25 (NIV)
We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

Physical Exam

Posted 1st June 2008 at 03:54 PM by JAS4Yeshua
On Friday after work, I had my physical. To be honest, I wasn't quite looking forward to it, but I wasn't worried about it either. It is just one of those things that has to be done.

Blood work came back. My thyroid (which was healed from being overactive in 2001) is still normal. My blood sugar was fine. My cholesterol, for the most part, was good, except that my "good cholesterol" was low. My urinalysis was normal. The only real problem area was my blood pressure was slightly...

My Doctor Visit

Posted 21st May 2008 at 12:42 AM by JAS4Yeshua
I know, most of what I've written has been in relation to Michelle's health issues. Very little is really ever mentioned about my own issues. As much as I'd love to ignorantly go through and ignore my own issues, I know, for Michelle's benefit, I need to see a doctor myself. Since I recently turned 35, I know that I need to have a routine physical. In addition, my mother was diagnosed with high blood pressure when she was in her mid to late thirties. For that reason, I could be at risk.

The Battle Rages On

Posted 17th May 2008 at 06:31 PM by JAS4Yeshua
Take a step forward. Wind up having several steps back. At least that is the way it seems at times, especially when it comes to Michelle's health issues.

This has been another week of ups and downs for her, in regards to her health. One moment she is doing well (or relatively speaking), the next she is in bed, sick.

Thursday, she pushed herself a little too hard, and wound up sleeping all afternoon and night. I had the day off from work on Friday, and we went to lunch and...

Perseverance

Posted 9th May 2008 at 10:00 PM by JAS4Yeshua
James 1:2-4 (NIV)
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

My previous blog entires were written back in April of last year. It has been a little over a year since those were written, and, as some already know, it has been a year of trials. To be honest, it isn't always easy considering...

Trials: Part Two

Posted 9th May 2008 at 05:00 PM by JAS4Yeshua
Philippians 1:6 (NKJV)
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Michelle and I joked before we were married, and early into our marriage, that it wasn't "in sickness and in health" but actually "in sickness and in sickness." This was because of the relatively minor health issues we dealt with since she had lost her job. Neither of us knew how prophetic that would become....
