Had a post I was mulling for a bit for this morning when, instead, I received a link to a blog in our sidebar regarding Jim Bublitz, who used to run a blog called Old Truth.
If you follow the link, you'll find this post:
I've enjoyed interacting with many of you and posting on so many of the issues that effect today's church. I have, as of late experienced some medical problems that make it impossible for me to continue blogging at this time. I recently learned that I have "Non Alcoholic Cirrhosis of the Liver" which will require a liver transplant in order to survive beyond the next several years. For the past month I've spent a double-digit number of hours per day sleeping and have lost over 60 pounds in water retention. As some of you know, I've also been battling broken bones this last year, several of which are still giving me some problems.So today I'm just asking for prayer for Jim. He's a friend of this blog, a brother in Christ, and my prayer is that God will heal him -- whether it be through medicine, a skilled surgeon, or a flat out miracle if God will ordain it.
Through all of this, my family and church in Milwaukee have been incredibly supportive, and I'd like to thank them all. A special thanks goes out to Chad who has not only helped me with blogging through the months, but has also been a loyal friend and brother in the Lord. I am looking to the Lord through all of this and know that he has good that comes from these things (Romans 8:28). I'm at a loss as to how unbelievers are able to make it through these types of things without looking to the Lord for strength.
That's all I have to say about that -- except that your prayer requests can go in the meta, since we have people with their heads bowed and lifting needs up to the Lord.
