Fearless Friday


Welcome to another Fearless Friday my friends, sorry this post is late. My morning and afternoon were spent laying in the bed, battling with intense nausea. My blood sugars were intensely high the first part of the day. But, that is life with diabetes, you never know what to expect. I have decided to do my fearless Friday a little bit different. I will continue to pray for all prayer needs, and ask that you continue praying over those precious ones on my sidebar, and those people I have mentioned at other times. But, I will be praying over one cause, or person weekly. Please join me in praying, all prayer warriors are needed. We are in a battle for lives. This week, my focus is on diabetes. As a type 1 diabetic myself, I truly can understand this battle. My oldest brother passed away from type 1 diabetes June 8, 2008. He was only 56, and my sister who is 55, is battling for her live daily, she also has type 1 diabetes. Due to complications from diabetes, she has kidney failure, foot and leg problems,has lost a little toe, congestive heart failure, problems with her hearing, and problems with her hands. Due to complications from my diabetes, I have nerve damage in my legs, feet, hands, and stomach. I have 4 heart blockages, some kidney damage, and I am going blind. My dad, and my other brother both have type 2 diabetes, they are able to control it with pills, praise God. I have a nephew who also has type 1 diabetes. As you can see, it is all in my family. I have to take 5 shots of insulin a day, and check my blood sugar constantly. If my blood sugar is to high, or to low, it can be very dangerous. I know there are so many of you that have a family member/and,or friends that are dealing with this deadly disease. You may have this disease yourself. My heart truly goes out to you, and my prayers. My hearts wish, is that one day soon, they will find a cure for this disease that affects so many. Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, please comfort those who battle this disease daily, give them strength for the battle. Help them to stay well, and not have complications. Those who already have complications, I pray they will be able to handle the complications without pain. Be with their family and friends, I know it is hard to see your loved ones suffer. Give them rest, it can be a very weary journey. Thank You Father for the peace it gives my heart, knowing that You are my true physician, and my ultimate healer. I love You. Amen

We have seen a jump in number among inmates who are diabetics and have high blood pressure. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't feel well sis earlier. Praying with you and for you. I couldn't take a nap but I'm gonna' try to get an hour before going to work. I just want to let you know I'm standing in the gap with you. Love and blessings to you sister. Take care.

Don't you wonder how people deal with such difficulty when they don't know God.

Blessings on you.

Sweet Denise - I pray that you are feeling better today.

I work at a hospital and I review patient charts for quality of care. I would guess that in 80-90 percent of the charts I review, the patient has either type I or type II diabetes. I pray that a cure is found soon.
