I think a lot of people can probably relate to this. Not only with Fibromyalgia, but with other "thorns." Like you and Paul, I have prayed many times for God to take my "thorn" - Fabry disease. He hasn't seen fit to answer that one. What I have heard, is maybe there's a reason. Maybe I'm reaching others I wouldn't otherwise. Like you.

Thank you for this article.

God bless!
My fellow fibromyalgia friend, oh how I relate to this. I was recently in the ER with pains so bad I thought I was having a heart attack. So my heart goes out to you.

The scriptures you've given are not only pertinent, but the essence of "life" as it were...excellent job, thanks for sharing your message and story.

God bless~
My niece also has the crippling disease of Fibromyalgia. I'm glad you, like Paul, have grown in your walk in Christ during this difficult time.
While I can't identify with those battling this particular disease, I can certainly identify with the basic principle of learning through suffering which your story exemplifies well.
Congratulations, Laine, on your highly commended story in the Intermediate Category.

I hope God continues to sustain you as you deal with the Fibromyalgia.
Congratulations on your Highly Commended!!

I have a close friend with Fibro and my sister suffers with RA. Your piece is so inspiring for all those who suffer from intense pain. The scriptures are like balm for our soul when we suffer.

God Bless!!
