Here's a video that's worth watching if you have RealAudio.It's very encouraginghttp://media.coralridge.org/meta/CRH/ram/crh050123_F_DSL.ramHis website is www.farese.com
Worth a look
"I reject the phrase, 'God allowed me to be born afflicted', God didn't allow it, he designed it according to his eternal purposes"Ex:4:11: And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Truly an anointed man who’s life is a glorification of the Father.Joh:9:1: And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.Joh:9:2: And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?Joh:9:3: Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
That man's faith is beautiful and precious. His story brought tears to my eyes.

I hope I'm not misunderstanding your post brother/sister, but the words I had in quotes are HIS words, not mine. If you watch the video, he says it about 8 minutes into it.
I'm the one who is sorry. It appears that I am the one who misunderstood your post. In ChristHope
