    I do relate I passed several stones over a few nights. I reached out to the spiritual family in this painful event. When I got past the many ideas that I had it coming and it was a sign of the fall. I found great comfort in communal prayer. I have learned to repent of such aspects of the faith community, sort of. But I do remember they pumped me full of morphine to relieve the pain when I had kidney stones and in the emergency room they found me on my knees, literally, praying for the person on the next cubicle. I agree that is pathetic at best and I should be ashamed of such emotionalism. Trust me I am on many occasions. I often repent of needing. Any type of needing, prayer, support, community and other such total nonsense. I actually can remember praying for God to rebuke me in any post I may actually say something in any type of need.

    Granted we all agree true followers of Jesus dont need such events, of any type, ever I get that part and trust me I get that in spades. We should not need, forgiveness, hope, comfort, and other such disgusting emotionalistic clap trap. I get that. I really do. Just an aside, please stop calling it good news, it is not, never has been and never will be for the vast majority of humanity. That does not seem like too much of a request. Just a thought. Thanks

    I offer this from a perspective when I went to the emergency room, (sin number one) trust me it is a sin, when I could not stand up, even focus. I remember the searing pain, and to my shame I actually had the gall to offer up that pain for others. Granted that makes me way to Catholic, thus collaborators of eternal hell. God hates Catholics, EO, many Lutherans, Anglicans and so on. Actually God hates everyone except a very small minority. He created the vast majority of humanity to burn in hell so the elect can praise Him for all eternity.

    I struggle with that, to my shame, if god tortures the vast majority of humanity it should have no meaning whatsoever. In fact I should find joy and eternal praise in that. I will admit I struggle with this, a personal and moral failing on my part. If they burn the only question we should ask as true followers of the way is how hot and how long. How hot, I dont know, How long, for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever. I never quite got that part.

    Amen, Noelle…Father….embrace our friend and be present with him. Stand guard by his side and ease his anxiety, heal his body. Remind him of how loved he is and bring those alongside who can be near to ease his loneliness.

    When his thoughts overwhelm him, allow the Word that is in him to counter those thoughts. Remind him of Your promises and stir Your spirit within him to allow peace.

    Christian failure = oxymoron

    the only thing worse than passing kidney stones is not passing them – joining in lifting E to the Father in prayer

    i didn’t realize puzz would share this…. passed a stone but still in pain…. going to dr…… there’s times when it feels you are alone and grasping in the dark for God…. this is one of those times and it feeds my fears so i lose hope… i so envy those of you who go through so much and are the stronger for it….. thank you so much. Allan

    I hear those BuenO Park stones are the worst! 😉 Praying that you get well soon.

  16. Chile says:

    Erunner, stones are the worst! All encompassing pain like that can wear anyone down. I wonder if people who haven’t experienced this sort of losing hope and feeling fear just haven’t experienced this much pain?

    Prayed for you.

    My favorite line from the movie the Count of Monte Cristo.

    Priest, I don’t believe in God anymore.

    Priest responds,”That’s OK, He still believes in you.”

    This helps me rest in His promises even when I can’t feel His presence.

    I’m praying too E. I’ve been there myself (stones and despair) and you will get through both. Call if you need me.

  21. Paige says:

    Any updates? Hope Erunner is doing better…..

  22. erunner says:

    I had a CT scan today to see about a possible cyst on my kidney. Today I have passed several kidney stones but I’m still not sure what’s what. I passed stones four months ago so it seems to be happening too often.

    I was alone in my room the other night in much physical and emotional pain when I got up to look online and that is when a message from Puzzle showed up asking how I was. That meant so much to me.

    I am thankful for your prayers. Allan

  23. Xenia says:

    We all love you, eRunner. Get well soon!

    Praying for ERunner….When we’re sick, sometimes our mind can play tricks on us…We need outsiders to pray for us….

  25. “…i so envy those of you who go through so much and are the stronger for it…” Me too, E.

    I’m praying for you, E-Friend!
