"To James R re your urgent prayer request"

Hi James
 I have prayed for you and your fiance and am so sorry that you are having to go throught this difficult time. I agree with Bruce Baber that it does take time and Gods touch, also it depends on the severity. In 2009 I was admitted to hospital, having had two massive seizures. To make a long story short, after many tests and hospital procedures, the doctors discovered a tapeworm in my brain. I lost my memory and when I came out of hospital I could not talk. The Doctors thought I had brain damage. It has taken up to now to regain my memory which is still not 100% but it is getting better, thanks to the Lord`s healing and grace and the worm has since died. I am able to reduce the medication and have had no more seizures.
I am sending you a word that a friend sent to me written by Marsha Burns . I hope it too will encourage you as it did me. Remember, both of you to daily put on the full armour of God, and ask the Lord to protect you both and your families with his Holy fire and the blood of Jesus, as the enemy is prowling around, waiting to harm us.
"The worldly concerns that have kept you in fear and bondage will now give way to the reality and substance of your faith to trust Me in all things. For, I will direct your steps and be your rear guard. I am with you to give wisdom and guidance in all things.

Rise up from the burden of despair that has rendered you hopeless and helpless. Be done with the darkness of disappointment. I say, arise to new heights of faith and hope. You are not alone; I am with you to bring you through to victory.

Set a watch for situations that have the potential for rejection, offense, and division. Yours is to be humble and to pursue the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Then, trust Me to mend what has been fractured and to bring restoration and wholeness. It is time for all flesh that causes division to be cut off.

I am releasing you from boredom and stagnation to be revitalized. Shake yourself awake, and no longer be under the spell of spiritual slumber. Then, you will sense a surge of new excitement and anticipation for what I will do in you and with you in the days ahead.

Position yourself for discovery. Stay steady. Keep your focus. Don't be afraid to allow My Spirit to take you to greater heights and to reveal what has been hidden. Your new found sense of adventure will be delightful.

You are on the threshold of a new era in which you can begin again, says the Lord. Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.:
The battle has been fierce and the demands on your life have been great, even weighing you down at times. But, I want you to lift up your eyes. Look to the heights and remember that I am your help in times of trouble. I want you to take flight in the Spirit and rise above the things that have kept you earthbound. Put your complete hope and trust in Me, says the Lord. I will cause your heart to sing again. Psalm 121:1-8 I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore"
My love to you both
