The reason I did not have a podcast episode last week is because I have been going through the worst sickness of my adult life. I have had six straight days of a fever with bed-ridden, fetal-position-aches-and-chills for practically ever day and night. After the third day I thought I was getting better but I relapsed, which ended up being worse. Yesterday, it eventually took a toll on me and my strength gave out and I fainted and slammed my head against a table or my child’s toy, I don’t remember. 911 was called and I was eventually stabilized. I went to the ER and they ran the gamut of tests, which ruled out the flu. They could not pin point my sickness. Nevertheless, I do feel better today and the first time I do not have a fever. But my strength is shot, in fact typing this is a feat in itself. Please pray for me that I can regain my strength and that this sickness does not affect my family. Even though I have been virtually unproductive the last week, the Lord has used this sickness to draw me closer to him, teaching me how utterly dependent we are on his mercies. He has good purposes for our sufferings. His grace is sufficient. I am determined, though Lord willing, to put out an episode later this week for The Biblical Prophecy Program.
