One Patient's Positive Perspectives

About Faith

All flesh is as grass...

“For all flesh is as grass,

and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.
The grass withereth,
and the flower thereof falleth away:

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
And this is the word which
by the gospel is preached unto you.”

I Peter 1:24-25

About your relationship with God…

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.” John 15:4

About Christ Jesus…

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

About forgiveness for sin…

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9

About God’s great love for you…

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born [begotten’] of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:7-8

About faith…

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life.” John 3:36

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

About righteousness…

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6

“What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; as it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.” Romans 3:9-11

“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 4:23-24

About judgment to come…

“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:22-23

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrews 9:27-28

  1. God can and will allow pain in our lives to get our attention.

    • Jeff, yes, He can use trials to refine us, and draw us closer to him. There is a joy in a Christian’s life when they walk with God that flows through them in a place far deeper than pain can touch. Rock, scissors, paper. God, joy, pain. LA

  2. I read your Benlysta paost and your faith post. Faith has gotten me through many trials, but the bumpy lupus road is unbearable without Him. I am blessed to have a loving Heavenly Father to turn to in times of pain. Thank you for your posts.

    • Sala, Thank you so much for your visit and sharing your blessings of God’s faithfulness through the tough times. We are indeed blessed to have Him as our Father! Have a great day. LA

  3. I love this page! And I love that you are bold and intentional about your faith and sharing God’s truth. I look forward to future posts. After eleven years of battling this disease, I finally opened up this month with an article about ny life over these years and the role God played. I honestly dont know how I would have gotten through if it hadn’t been for Him. I look forward to chatting with you in the future! I’d love for you to read this if you have time.

    In Him,
    Marisa 😉

    Thirty-eight years ago today I crossed a life-changing threshold, and at the young age of sixteen accepted the grace of God in Christ for my salvation. That rainy San Francisco morning, I knelt on the rug on the wood floor of my parent’s bedroom and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I look back to that defining moment as the single most important life-directing decision I ever made. I am today a grateful, forgiven imperfect Christian, thankful for a lifetime full of blessings that God’s abundant love, grace and kindness have brought into my life. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Neh. 8:10
