How to Overcome Suffering

Posted by: lifestory in Suffering

Tagged in: Untagged 

This is my story:

I was born in the year 1955 in South-Lebanon, I went too early to the capital Beirut with my parents for study where I finished successfully complementary, secondary and finally university study in French Faculty of Medicine, by the end I graduated in 1980 as Doctor in Medicine. Then I began my specialisation in urology, by the end of 1984 I graduated in genito-urinary surgeon, but my destiny refused to give me the right to practice surgery and like someone who is waiting for me to finish my study, then he orders me to stay lay-down in the bed like “cadavre vivant” an expression described by Alexandre Dumas to one of his hero, who had the same symptoms like me, but the syndrome was unknown in 1840, in his work “Le Comte de Montecristo”.


In midnight of 25 January in the year 1985, suddenly and without any premonitory sign, I felt a severe headache and within two hours I lost my sight, my equilibrium, and in few minutes I became comatose for one month, when I awoke I found myself quadriplegic and mute with the lesion of some cranial nerves which I discovered gradually because no one had the courage to tell me what happened to me even the physician who treated me and who is supposed to do it.

Jonathan Lippmann - 

I grew up as a kid with a lot of attitude in Nashville, TN. When I was in 7th grade, my father had a brain tumor and was given 6 months to live. I knew it was bad when his high school marching band came over to the house to perform for my father in the front yard. I knew at that point he was probably going to die from the brain tumor.

My grandmother was a Christian, and she used to always witness to us, and I never used to want to hear it as a kid. She had a pastor call my father and lead him to Christ, and he gave his life to Christ a couple of weeks before he went back to the hospital to see how big the tumor was. They had given up hope and tried chemotherapy and everything. He went in and they did the test, and the tumor was completely gone! By the grace of God He healed my father. God definitely used that to show me how real He is, and although I wasn’t living for Him and didn’t know anything other than what my grandma told me -- Jesus healed my father -- I knew that to be true.

I came to know Christ in L.A. I met a friend who is a news anchor at Fox News. We used to work out together all the time. I used to talk to him about Take Six, the vocal group, how much I loved the harmonies, and I’d just be myself, cussin.’ He never judged me and never told me not to cuss. He just listened to me and showed me love. And I saw that, as much as he didn’t realize I saw it; I saw every bit of it.

Seven years later, thanks to a persistent Opus Dei priest, the sixty-nine-year-old doctor, author of Aborting America and The Abortion Papers, is becoming a Roman Catholic.

Author of 9 science fiction books, and a professed atheist, John C. Wright began to question the foundation of atheism and began to find himself drawn towards Christians. Watch this inspirational video to hear John's motivations for searching for faith and the story of what happens when God is dared to show himself.

Reformed Performer

     Hello, my name is Lauren Shaw, and I’d like to share a part of my story with you.  I am a performer.  Not the kind of performer who steps on stage and wows audiences with my ability to play an instrument, recite a monologue, or create a work of art.  Rather, I am the kind of performer who gets things done and meets expectations.  Much of my life I’ve been able to perform in a way that earns me enough praise to make me feel good about myself, and that achieves enough for me to stand out.

            Today I want to tell you a little about my performances and about some times when the curtain rose and for one reason or another I could not get on the stage.  I also want to tell you about the freedom I have found from the need to perform, the freedom to live a life without being chained to expectations and demands, applause or approval.
