No more hives.

John 10:10 describes it best: "The thief [satan] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy."

The devil tried to steal away my health (indirectly), kill my attitude into something like self-pity, and destroy my life in general. Now, hives isn't a disease or sickness and it isn't contagious. Apparently it's the bodies/skin's natural reaction to something or other. I'm not a doctor, I can't really explain it. Oh yeah, it's normal. But anyways, if you saw my just my back and the weird lumps with redness on it, you would have gasped. It was completely covered. I could have freaked out, complained, and worried constantly thinking I was sick or something. But I didn't. John 10:10 continues to say, "I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."

I am "well" (wasn't really sick to begin with) now, because of the blessing of access to drugs and medical facilities that God has blessed me with, in my situation, in this country. I could be worse. I could be in dismay and be sad, stressing out over something I don't have control of. But I don't have to, because God wants me to be happy! He wants me to enjoy life! He wants me to have it "more abundantly." No matter your situation, it's the same for you.

Maybe you're thinking, "Yeah Tim, easy for your to say. You're not the one experiencing this difficulty/problem/sickness/situation/pressure. " You're right, my talk is cheap. But this is God speaking, from His Word, the Bible: "He shall call upon Me [God], and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him." (Psalm 91:15 NKJV)

When it's God, Creator of the Universe speaking, it's His promise to you.

Whew, I've been seeing gas at a constant 118+ ¢/litre.

In the past weekend in the US, there was a little something called the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner and some interesting things happened, like George Bush doing a bit with Steve Bridges, a famous impersonator and Stephen Colbert, (from the Colbert Report) who roasted, insulted, and made fun of Bush and various other people to their faces. American politics is amusing.
