Hey friends, humbly asking for prayers for myself. I've been dealing with a mysterious illness for the past 4 months. Constantly feeling faint, headaches, brain fog, constantly having severe anxiety and panic attacks, burning sensation all over my body (feels like when you have a fever and sunburn), dont feel like myself, super dizzy, impending doom constantly. I have lost the ability to relax..Feeling worse when sitting/laying. Trouble eating and sleeping. Just super defeated and hopeless, never been in this much physical/mental agony. Havent found any true substantial relief and any real answers as to why this is happening to me. I ask for your kindness and prayers for healing, comfort, to find answers and to remove my worry. All I desire is to just lay down and relax because I feel so awful and I havent been able to do that. Thank you for reading this and for your support/prayers. If you wouldnt mind sending me some inspirational quotes from TUB, much appreciated.

Peace + Love!,

Eric :biggrin:

Godspeed healing Ocean333. There's this quote that reveals God's willingness to go thru suffering with and in us:

...The Adjuster remains with you in all disaster and through every sickness which does not wholly destroy the mentality.... 110:1.5 (1204.3)

God bless you and all who thusly suffer the afflictions of body and spirit in the travails of mortal life. All suffering is a temporal burden with Divine potential for everlasting reward. May your faith be strengthened by the assurance of the eternal adventures and the release from pain and all anxieties.

1:5.15 (29.5) The absolute perfection of the infinite God would cause him to suffer the awful limitations of unqualified finality of perfectness were it not a fact that the Universal Father directly participates in the personality struggle of every imperfect soul in the wide universe who seeks, by divine aid, to ascend to the spiritually perfect worlds on high. This progressive experience of every spirit being and every mortal creature throughout the universe of universes is a part of the Father’s ever-expanding Deity-consciousness of the never-ending divine circle of ceaseless self-realization.

1:5.16 (29.6) It is literally true: “In all your afflictions he is afflicted.” “In all your triumphs he triumphs in and with you.” His prepersonal divine spirit is a real part of you. The Isle of Paradise responds to all the physical metamorphoses of the universe of universes; the Eternal Son includes all the spirit impulses of all creation; the Conjoint Actor encompasses all the mind expression of the expanding cosmos. The Universal Father realizes in the fullness of the divine consciousness all the individual experience of the progressive struggles of the expanding minds and the ascending spirits of every entity, being, and personality of the whole evolutionary creation of time and space. And all this is literally true, for “in Him we all live and move and have our being.”

8)

3:6.6 (53.4) Does the Paradise Father suffer? I do not know. The Creator Sons most certainly can and sometimes do, even as do mortals. The Eternal Son and the Infinite Spirit suffer in a modified sense. I think the Universal Father does, but I cannot understand how; perhaps through the personality circuit or through the individuality of the Thought Adjusters and other bestowals of his eternal nature. He has said of the mortal races, “In all your afflictions I am afflicted.” He unquestionably experiences a fatherly and sympathetic understanding; he may truly suffer, but I do not comprehend the nature thereof.

8)

148:6.10 (1664.2) “Job was altogether right when he challenged the doctrine that God afflicts children in order to punish their parents. Job was ever ready to admit that God is righteous, but he longed for some soul-satisfying revelation of the personal character of the Eternal. And that is our mission on earth. No more shall suffering mortals be denied the comfort of knowing the love of God and understanding the mercy of the Father in heaven. While the speech of God spoken from the whirlwind was a majestic concept for the day of its utterance, you have already learned that the Father does not thus reveal himself, but rather that he speaks within the human heart as a still, small voice, saying, ‘This is the way; walk therein.’ Do you not comprehend that God dwells within you, that he has become what you are that he may make you what he is!”

148:6.11 (1664.3) Then Jesus made this final statement: “The Father in heaven does not willingly afflict the children of men. Man suffers, first, from the accidents of time and the imperfections of the evil of an immature physical existence. Next, he suffers the inexorable consequences of sin—the transgression of the laws of life and light. And finally, man reaps the harvest of his own iniquitous persistence in rebellion against the righteous rule of heaven on earth. But man’s miseries are not a personal visitation of divine judgment. Man can, and will, do much to lessen his temporal sufferings. But once and for all be delivered from the superstition that God afflicts man at the behest of the evil one. Study the Book of Job just to discover how many wrong ideas of God even good men may honestly entertain; and then note how even the painfully afflicted Job found the God of comfort and salvation in spite of such erroneous teachings. At last his faith pierced the clouds of suffering to discern the light of life pouring forth from the Father as healing mercy and everlasting righteousness.”

So sorry to hear about your illness, Oceans333. That seems like a mystery for sure. Others have given you some good inspiration here and I hope you can somehow keep your spirit elevated. Keep praying for guidance.

You are not alone. I pray for your restoration.
