    Have severe iron deficiency

    My husband has one, I will let him know about this! We’ve never gotten around to using it, for some reason! And I will try to find someone who does natural medicine if I have to, right now I’m trying to do a lower carb diet, with fruits (where most of the carbs in my diet are coming from). I read about a lot of fruit that had good amounts of iron and that clams had a lot! I bought some cans of them at the store, today. I hope they taste good! Lol 😹

    Have severe iron deficiency

    I found out that I have chronically low iron saturation and ferritin. I have to start iron infusions, next week. I’ve been very tired and haven’t been able to breathe well (although the breathing had gotten a lot better after I prayed hard about it). The Dr. felt my thyroid and said it felt a little enlarged, so I have to get that checked, too. I’m pretty frustrated with that, because from all of my research, thyroid stuff can be very difficult to treat and the meds they put you on, are basically poison.(According to some people that have had to take them). Please pray for my thyroid health/overall health. My iron is low due to very heavy bleeding, caused by a pre-existing disorder that I have. The meds that doctors offer for this aren’t very healthy, either, which is why I don’t take them. I really pray that my iron stays good after the infusions!

    I’ve been struggling a lot, I pray that my mind gets settled about all of this, soon.

    There’s one more thing that’s been really nagging at me, that I heard. The seal of the Holy Spirit is a down payment, but when you get a down payment you can give it back or if you trash the house that someone gave their down payment for, they then legally aren’t obligated to purchase the house and can then get their down payment, back. Brings to mind when the Bible says to respect the our body because the Holy Spirit lives in us. Also, that we’re only engaged to Christ, not married yet. So we must be ready for when He comes back, so when Jesus comes, we are found spotless and as a chaste virgin. These definitely got me a bit concerned.

    I’m going to have to think over this, it’s pretty complex. I’m trying to wrap my head around how this is talking about all of these things at once. So, in verse 22 this specifically talking about the blessings at believers, depending on our walk with Him? I guess the biggest thing that confuses me is how this portion of Scripture is worded. I feel like if you read it in a simple way, it’d seem pretty straight-forward that if we don’t continue with God, we won’t be in His saving grace, anymore. It seems like a lot of things that appear to say that, if you take it as face value, it seems to go along with that belief. But, if one believes in security, then we have to look at it in a more complex way. I realize that there are many complex things in the Bible, being that it’s the Word of the Amazing God. I guess I just have a hard time not reading the Bible like I would any other book. Usually you wouldn’t have to do a lot of deep interperating to figure out what a chapter out of it was trying to say. This is my main struggle, I think.

    Not offended, at all! I think your attention to detail is very helpful! It has helped me piece together things that I don’t know if I could have come to, on my own. I certainly appreciate the time you spend on your studies, they have taught me a lot, so far! It’d be nice if my obsessive mind processed things, like yours. You seem to handle it in a way healthier way, than myself. Mental illness runs in my family pretty bad. I think I mention this stuff, because my heart is crying for help. I feel so alone at times, the only other person that I really knew personally that struggled like me, was my dad.

    Thank you both for your comments! Pastor Markle, that makes sense I think. It seems like maybe it’s another instance where someone can misinterperate a fellowship verse with salvation verse, perhaps? The outline you gave seems to fit this understanding. It’s frustrating how difficult it can be, differentiating the two scenarios, sometimes. Jim, thank you for your comments as well! What you said is also reminding me of the remedy for my issues, learning context and interpretation in the Bible. It’s unbelievably difficult for me sometimes, to just grasp these kinds of things, it makes me want to kick my brain!! The life in the mind of an OCD sufferer, is very annoying to say the least. Feels like I’m constantly arguing with another person. But hopefully, this will resolve sooner than later! I believe I’m going in the right direction with the insightful help that I’m getting on here and from a couple of other trusted Christians, as well!

    I was reading in the daily chapter on my Bible app today, I got a little confused on something. Romans 11:20-22, I was reading it in the context and looked at some commentaries as well, I do agree that it’s talking about Jews and gentiles as a whole, but in verse 20 it says that some are standing by faith (which I assume means they’re saved), but in verse 22 he says that they’re able to be cut off. In light of the fact that this is in parallel with Israel’s unbelief (which I assume means that the ones not believing are not saved), I’m kind of confused about how we can be standing in faith, but be cut off like the other unbelievers?

    Financial struggles

    There’s a bunch of very expensive things that have come up in my household, recently. We don’t make much money and everyone is very stressed right now. Please pray for our ability to comfortably pay these things off and for peace and comfort while we are going through this. Thank you

    When you get a chance, I still would like help with my last questions, though. I still don’t quite understand them yet.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to determine what the context of the word is. Especially since, when we talk about being saved in the Christian community, we mean from hell, and being brought into God’s family. I feel like I’ve been learning a lot, though. I was having a thought last night as well, about how being born of God, of incorruptible seed and becoming His children, how could we ever be lost? I know many who say we can lose salvation, say that we can grieve the Holy Spirit until He leaves or until we get too hardened to listen, but I can’t think of a verse in the NT that says He will ever not be apart of us for any reason, and I don’t believe He says that He will leave us, either. Also, even if we don’t listen to God (even though we should and it’s very wrong if we choose not to), I don’t see how that means we won’t be His children, anymore. We are still born of God and Christ is in us and He can’t deny Himself, the Bible says that. Just thought I’d share that, it was a moment of something simple, clicking in my head. I may still struggle, but it got me thinking some more.
