Dear Terri Ettinghausen, Thank you so much for writing this article on how God works individually with us to turn our coal into the beauty and energy of a diamond. I am 75 and handicapped and yet God is using me to help people in my church who have been struggling with long trials and problems that have not gotten the help they fully need or need better directions on how to overcome or make progress in their severe trials. I have a bachelor degree in psychology I am starting to use and my great interest in complete overall human health I have read and pondered over my lifetime guided by studying and reading the Bible are all, along with my experience in personal relationships, coming together to help me address the whole person’s needs of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and etc healing and integration. God’s promise that if we turned to obey Him, He would heal us I take to mean completely in every way and in everything. Thank you for your great depth of God given personal wisdom and how that applies to us all. I greatly needed your encouragement and to know that you and others are going through this process of being made into more useful helpers. Pamela B.
Your post date is a week ahead of the calendar date: today is September 7, 2022. I think you should make "The Handwriting is on the wall" by Darris McNeely into a booklet. I thought it was more compelling than the booklet offered: "The Last World Kingdom."
Dr. Ward, Thanks for your meditation on living the Holy Days each day of our lives. Very insightful.
