In Ephesians 2:10 Paul writes:
"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

How encouraging that is! Does that mean that the limitations I have had and that I have been worrying so much about should not hold me back so much after all?

Will my new medication help me become more stable so that it will be easier to make promises? How wonderful that would be! Will I be able to photograph adequately, in spite of the tremors?

I'm doing so much better moodwise. What a blessing! How grateful I am! How hopeful for a better life!

Paul had his "thorn in the flesh," didn't he? Yet it did not hold him back. He believed in the good work God made him for and God gave him the strength to carry it out.

I am encouraged. Hope for my future has greatly increased. Thank God for helping scientists come up with medications to help people with bipolar disorder! We are indeed fortunate to be living in this day and age.

Yes we are certainly fortunate to live in this day and age with proper medications. So we all have a thorn in the flesh, for bipolars it is certainly a huge thorn but Paul's thorn was also a huge thorn so much that he ask God to remove it. God answered that his Grace was enough for him to live with it daily. It is a blessing that we can ask God for his grace and that we can run to Him when life gets to ruf and tough.

Hello Hein,

It certainly IS a blessing that we can go to God when things get rough. If we would only remember at times like that that we can trust him, eh?
