Radio Silent

As there always seems to be, I have a good reason for why I haven't posted anything in the past few days and the reason is my elbow. It's strange how little things, things that we take for granted and seem insignificant in the great scheme of things can stop us in our tracks,  and make it impossible for us to do anything productive.

A day after returning from Michigan my elbow started bothering me a bit. It was nothing major, pain I am used to, so I ignored it going about my daily routine. The next morning, however, I couldn't ignore it anymore because I couldn't bend it, and when I tried the pain was similar to the gout pain I used to have before cleaning up my diet.

It had also swollen overnight, and now, not only couldn't I bend my elbow, it even hurt trying to move my fingers. I was told icing it was the best thing I could do next to simply resting it and not doing the things I normally do.

It has finally subsided, although not all the way, but I'm hoping to get back to writing sometime this week as I miss it terribly.

And so, this is why I've been radio silent for the past few days.

Yes, we all go through trials. Even preachers, and evangelists, and whatever title men might go by nowadays,  we are all subject to the continual deterioration of our flesh. We're all human, we all hurt, but our Father carries us through. This above all else is the singular reason I am thankful, even though in my body I am in pain.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

Even Paul had his thorn in his side.

Just so you know, though, in my middle of the night prayer wake up call last night, your name was at the top of the list. I didn't know what to pray so I just lifted your name to Jesus for intervention. Isn't God amazing? :-)
For Him,
