How are you...Really

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I just wanted to see how everyone is coping? How are you doing and what are you doing to cope? As a Christian I am trying my best to give it all to God by taking it to Him in prayer and praising Him for who He is and regardless of what I'm going through.

I wanted to share this Bible Prayer from the book Bible Prayers for all your needs. Its about having peace of mind. I know I sometimes feel down but I know that God is with us. I will be posting more in the future from my prayer book to help somebody.

When you need Peace of Mind.

Key Scripture: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27)

Heavenly Father, thank you for your peace which surpasses all understanding and keeps my heart and mind through Christ Jesus. You always keep me in perfect peace when I keep my mind stayed on you in an attitude of complete trust in you. Peace of mind is very precious to me, Lord, so I ask you to help me to trust you always.

Father help me to follow the guidance your peace in my heart brings to me. Thank you for ordaining peace for me and giving me peace like a river because I love you Word.

I will always have peace with you, Father, through my Lord Savior Jesus Christ. I delight myself in the abundant peace you give to me. Thank you for the fruit of peace you give to me through your Holy Spirit. I receive His provision of peace as I pray. God of all hope, I praise you for filling me with your joy and peace that come through believing your word. I now abound in hope and peace through the power of your Holy Spirit. I receive your promise of pease of mind, Lord. Thank you for your blessing of peace in my life.

I have complete peace about having herpes. It was not so in the first 5 months, but I just know this is not WHO I am and it doesn't stop me from doing anything or being anything for Christ. It now just aggravates me, but there are lots of things that aggravate me. I just accept that God allowed this in my life for a reason and I don't have to understand it, but just trust him. The bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God, so by faith I am trusting him and serving him, in spite of this virus.

I am a Christian...and I have to admit that after I was diagnosed with GHSV2 I closed myself off. I still continued to go to church, to pray, and to read God's word on a steady basis, but it was like a part of me had died. I know that that may seem extreme but I didn't feel myself anymore. And I was angry...angry at myself, angry at the situation, and even a little angry with God b/c I didn't know why this was happening at this time in my life. I'm 34 yrs old, married to a wonderful man, a good job that seems to making it through a tough economy, and friends and family that love me dearly. I couldn't understand...why now? But when I look back I realize that God has a way of preparing you. I rededicated my life to God 3 yrs ago. Shortly after doing that God placed it on my heart to pray for strength. I didn't know why but as a part of my prayers I did just that. Almost 2 yrs later I came to understand why...I would need all the strength I could get to get through this situation. Its been exactly 14 months since I found out. It's been hard...but I'm still here. I believe His word when He says "My strength is made perfect in your weakness" 2 Corinthians 12:9...b/c He has been my strength during those times when I couldn't do for myself. He walked for me when I didn't feel like getting out of bed. He spoke for me when words just didn't want to come out of my mouth. When I cried, He wiped those tears away. I'm blessed and it's only b/c of Him. When I was diagnosed I couldn't see past that day never the less into the next yr, but here I am. He loves me in spite of myself. He loves us all. And God will never leave us nor forsake us. God Bless.

Thanks everyone for responding. I'm having a rough time right now and I know that I brought this on myself and its hard to come to grips with it. I know its reality but what makes it so hard is when I'm not feeling well physically. I feel so tainted. I'm 29 and I had so many dreams for myself- to be married to have children and I'm trying to trust and believe that if its God's will for all that to happen that it will and that I need to seek him first. I know the Word but this is so hard for me.

I contracted this just last year from my husband, whom I've been married to for 28 years. We never knew he even carried this virus until I broke out and a test showed that he had it as an old infection. This was something he had done more than 28 years earlier and we have been serving God since we married. My husband got saved just one month after we were married and then I got saved. Never did we think a STD was anything we had to worry about, since we have a great marriage. It was because of his actions and we all have to stand up and take responsibility for them. I had an extremely hard time with depression for the first 5 months but it's gotten much better now. God can still use me, I can still raise up my children to serve him and to wait until marriage to have sex, just like the bible says we are to. Having herpes does not change the fact that I am a mother, wife, Christian, good neighbor etc. It will get better with time. I read that so many times and I used to get so mad about it! But it really does. The simple thing is that it got me to focus on who I am in Christ and this virus doesn't change who I am in him. He doesn't look at me as disgusting or unusable. He sees a willing vessel that is focused on him!

I was diagnosed one month ago. I'm still trying to cope. I went through a great deal of depressed moments when I went through my divorce a couple years ago. God showed me the light in the tunnel of darkness, but a crumbling marriage seems so minor compared to this. This is actually forever and although I'm not asking God why me, I am asking how can I go on. I guess my current coping mechanisms are trying to exaggerate any positive thing in my life; I laugh harder at jokes hoping that the happiness will last for a little while longer after others stop laughing. I listen to gospel music constantly and try to remember the storms that I made it through. I don't know how to give THIS all to God.

      You could try getting Genferon suppositories that you buy from Russia. They are used boost interleukins and someone I know was using them and it was helping a lot with her neuritis. She gets it from genital HSV1 and doesn't get outbreaks, just the tingling, itching, nerve pain. She is planning on also using the Herpavac vaccine next from Russia. Ever since she got the chickenpox vaccine she hasn't had any outbreaks, just this neuritis/neuralgia.   For me, I've been taking LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) which modulates my immune system and has greatly reduced my daily symptoms. During the day I get practically no symptoms for last 2 weeks, but in the evenings I get some mild irritation. LDN is a prescription which I get from a naturopath. It is much safer than the antivirals and can have many benefits. I am now taking 2mg a day. I started at 0.5mg. I will keep increasing it slowly until hopefully all my symptoms disappear. Some have said this has happened for them who have hsv1 and it also benefits hsv2, like me. Check out this website to learn more. ldnresearchtrust.org
