The power of prayer and patience....

I know my wife, my love, does not like me to tell the world about her and I will respect that. But I must tell of this. My wife has come back into my life and it is the most glorious thing. I am living positive proof of the power of God and Prayer! But not only prayer, hard work and dedication improving ones mind and spirit. I read from the Bible, if you pray for something, pray as if it has already happened and it will. Being a person that never believed anything I couldn't see, I chose to do this and it has come to be. I preach to no one about how they should believe, it is for each of us to make that determination. I speak for myself but I do pass on what has happened so that others may use that experience to help them in their time of decision. In the darkest of times we must keep a positive outlook on life, always search for the good in whatever happens. I have missed my wife for so long, and I wish I could have been with her to help her through her ordeals. But God puts out a plan for us, and because of our ability to choose, sometimes that plan is altered, yet we must always perservere. Never give up hope. I try to do good things, because I beleive when you do good things, good things will happen. Yes, we also suffer sadness and loss, and only at the end of our lives, when we look back, can we determine the overall goodness of our life. I also try to stay very humble because it is not by the deeds we do that we will be judged, but rather our ability to ask for forgiveness. We all sin, we are all imperfect. But it is in the asking to be forgiven for that imperfection that we may find joy. I had strived for so long to be so perfect to everyone around me that I drove myself into a downward spiral. I am not perfect. I am just who I am. I can only do what I can do and not one bit more. I no longer crumble under the weight of what I cannot do, rather I just bask in the light of what I can do.
