Equipment to serve those in physical pain

These last few days I have been weighed down by all the physical pain I see around me.

In every community I visit, there are sisters and brothers struggling to make it through each day because of chronic back pain, neck pain, sciatic pain, headaches. or illness. There are injuries that now reduce mobility to the point a person cant function in day to day life without strong narcotic pain medication which numbs their senses and spirit and just makes then feel sick constantly.

My own husband struggles each day with serious back pain due to a workplace injury and is very limited in what he can do, requiring rest for the more part of every day, day in and day out.
My oldest daughter also has hereditary pain in her neck and shoulders, it causes her immense mental and physical strain, sleepless nights. Pain killers no longer work.

Just this past week I have met others in my community circle who are likewise suffering because of these physical limitations. I dont know what to do to help, I guess my faith isn't strong enough to heal, Lord help my unbelief! Since I dont have that type of faith to heal, I can use other gifts to help temporarily relieve  pain. Its a band-aid to the real thing, but even a band-aid helps right.

Anyhow, this has been brought to my attention more so this week, though i have noticed now for quite some time. I know people everywhere who struggle and simply cant afford to have treatment and dont have the time to set aside demands of work because they are trying to support their families.

An idea that came to me a few days ago. When we are not busy helping people with their projects, I have free time that I could work on my brothers and sisters for free! 

I have had experience in working with people in pain physically and emotionally. During the last two years I was invited and volunteered to help Dr Alex Gilmore in his Chiropractic office (Cedaredge). I really enjoyed the experience and the valuable knowledge I learned from him while working one to one with his patients, especially the spiritual connection with people

During that time I learned how to use the Percussor, the Adjuster, Tuning forks and Color therapy glasses. I did not do the Chiropractic work. However I saw how just these therapies above, can be of great benefit to those struggling with pain. Theses therapies gave respite for a time.

So the reason of this post, I believe I have gained some knowledge and I want to share this gift given me from Dr Gilmore with others but I lack the equipment. That is why I feel stuck, I could be doing something to help but I just dont have the means!

I am writing this post to see if it is possible to get the items I need to help others, through people buying it and donating it. Every time the equipment will be used, it will be for free, as a service.
No money will be collected from those donating or those being treated. We visit with a lot of Fellowships, so I would bring the equipment with me as I go.

I want to donate my time and efforts to helping others because I have seen firsthand how pain and sickness affects the emotional, spiritual and physical abilities and senses.

Will some of you who read this and who are able, please help me to get what is needed to relieve some of this physical pain I see all around me?

Here are the links to the items needed. I, myself am not collecting any money. If you feel impressed to help, would you please buy the tool or item and then you can send it to me?

There is a large expense item, and that is the Percussor with attachments. I pray someone with the means to share is lead to this blog because that item is the most important. I leave this in Gods hands.

If you feel to help, please contact me at: berrybliss1@gmail.com so you can post the item to me or ask any questions.
Once an item is donated I will cross it off the list.

May God bless all those who have charity and kindness for the poor and help to relieve physical suffering through their sharing of their blessings.

The Lords Guide and Standard for All People

I just discovered this proposal. It was compiled by someone with the profile name "Truth"
I appreciate not knowing this persons name because these are the Lords Words, not mans.

I accept this as a Guide and Standard for my life and anything else the Lord adds or corrects from whatever sources He chooses
I have appreciation for all those who labored and wrote other proposals. I am grateful to Jeff and Emily Savage, their kindness and patience.
After softening my heart, I do believe the Original GP document was inspired and I recognized truth in the words there in.
I have printed all the proposals out and I keep them with my scriptures. 
I accept the true points written in each one and THANK YOU, my fellow Brothers and Sisters for laboring with me. (we participated in 3 GP meetings and were not obviously not adequate to the work)

Out of everything I have read, these words resonate with me the most.
Not my will, but His will be done.
It should be all about the Lord and His work and nothing about us. Let the world hear His words and not ours.

Remember: "WE MUST BECOME PRECIOUS TO EACH OTHER"

(Added thoughts)
To make this more personal, to reciprocate back to the Lord in His own words, I add my own voice to each of the points below by saying "I will" This is just how I make the His words my obligation to fulfill in my own life. How I can take upon me His name. Kind of like a marriage contract!

The Work of the Father, the Fulness of the Gospel.

Behold I say unto you that the house of Israel was compared unto an olive-tree by the spirit of the Lord which was in our fathers, and behold, are we not broken off from the house of Israel, and are we not a branch of the house of Israel? And now the thing which our father meaneth concerning the grafting in of the natural branches through the fulness of the Gentiles is that in the latter days when our seed shall have dwindled in unbelief, yea, for the space of many years and many generations after the Messiah shall be manifested in body unto the children of men, then shall the fulness of the gospel of the Messiah come unto the Gentiles, and from the Gentiles unto the remnant of our seed. And at that day shall the remnant of our seed know that they are of the house of Israel and that they are the covenant people of the Lord. And then shall they know and come to the knowledge of their forefathers and also to the knowledge of the gospel of their Redeemer, which was ministered unto their fathers by him. Wherefore, they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer and the very points of his doctrine, that they may know how to come unto him and be saved. And then at that day will they not rejoice and give praise unto their everlasting God, their rock, and their salvation? Yea, at that day, will they not receive the strength and nourishment from the true vine? Yea, will they not come unto the true fold of God? Behold I say unto you, Yea, they shall be remembered again among the house of Israel; they shall be grafted in, being a natural branch of the olive-tree, into the true olive-tree, and this is what our father meaneth. And he meaneth that it will not come to pass until after they are scattered by the Gentiles. And he meaneth that it shall come by way of the Gentiles, that the Lord may shew his power unto the Gentiles for the very cause that he shall be rejected of the Jews or of the house of Israel. Wherefore, our father hath not spoken of our seed alone, but also of all the house of Israel, pointing to the covenant which should be fulfilled in the latter days, which covenant the Lord made to our father Abraham, saying, In thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. And it came to pass that I, Nephi, spake much unto them concerning these things; yea, I spake unto them concerning the restoration of the Jews in the latter days and I did rehearse unto them the words of Isaiah, who spake concerning the restoration of the Jews or of the house of Israel; and after they were restored they should no more be confounded, neither should they be scattered again. And it came to pass that I did speak many words unto my brethren, that they were pacified and did humble themselves before the Lord.

(Book of Nephi, 5)


These words bring me such anticipation, the truth of these scriptures just fills me with hunger. I believe we are standing on precipice of this work to commence. 

Of a truth, Gods hand is moving to fulfill the word He spoke and is still speaking, today...through His servants. Every word must be fulfilled for God cannot lie.
The pieces are coming into place, do we doubt God can do this?

As Gentiles, we have a choice. To turn from our evil ways, act in faith and repent and keep His commandments in order to receive more Intelligence, become sanctified through His blood, cleansed without spot and called trusted to be endowed with His Power, that maybe we can work alongside with our Lord in His vineyard.


Israel will be gathered. Hearts connected to the Fathers in heaven and Zion established.


All the Prophets since the world began have looked forward to this moment. Do you believe, will you repent in order to participate in this great work, for His Name and for His Glory.


The way, is to know the things of God

And it came to pass that after I had received strength I spake unto my brethren, desiring to know of them the cause of their disputations. And they said, Behold we cannot understand the words which our father hath spoken concerning the natural branches of the olive-tree and also concerning the Gentiles. And I said unto them, Have ye inquired of the Lord? And they said unto me, We have not, for the Lord maketh no such thing known unto us. Behold I said unto them, How is it that ye do not keep the commandments of the Lord? How is it that ye will perish because of the hardness of your hearts? Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hath said, If ye will not harden your hearts and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made known unto you?

(The Book of Nephi, chapter 5)

Here is an important key to understanding the more mysterious passages of Scripture.
Nephi believed on the words of his father, the demonstration was by him  keeping the commandments, (1 Nephi 5:20) this is the way in which more Light and intelligence is given which enables us to accomplish all things the Lord commands.

Nephi then goes on to say;

And we had obtained the records which the Lord had commanded us, and searched them and found that they were desirable; yea, even of great worth unto us, insomuch that we could preserve the commandments of the Lord unto our children.
Wherefore, it was wisdom in the Lord that we should carry them with us, as we journeyed in the wilderness towards the land of promise.
This speaks to me more as a spiritual type than just the physical. Moses 6:61...
Therefore it is given to abide in you; the record of heaven; the Comforter; the peaceable things of immortal glory; the truth of all things; that which quickeneth all things, which maketh alive all things; that which knoweth all things, and hath all power according to wisdom, mercy, truth, justice, and judgment.

Joseph Smith: An important Christian thinker, writer and martyr

 
 
 
 
Taken from Amazon Page...
 
"Smithsonian Magazine identified Joseph Smith as the most significant religious figure in American history. Yet he remains misunderstood by most Christians, primarily because his legacy has been regarded as Mormon property. In many ways his life mirrors the Apostle Paul. He belongs to the Christian community as much as St. Francis of Assisi, Luther, Tyndale, Wesley, Knox, Williams and Calvin. His worst critics were and are Mormons. They abused him, led mobs against him, conspired to have him imprisoned and ultimately murdered. Mormons have slandered his memory with false histories. Joseph declared to the Mormons in April 1844 (two months before he was murdered): “You don’t know me; you never knew my heart.” That audience and its descendants have been self-interested custodians of Joseph Smith’s legacy. This book separates him from the interests of any institution, and allows him to explain his heart, in his own words. When allowed to speak, he is very different from the Mormon version. This book covers Joseph Smith’s three watershed failures and his written responses. The historical stage is set; then he reacts to the trials. The three episodes are: The quest and failure to distribute priesthood, the quest and failure to establish a community called “Zion,” and his half-year imprisonment in Missouri. He has been vilified and praised as the founder of Mormonism. Over eighty-four different religious sects claim him as their founder. But he is seldom thought of as a Christian thinker, writer and preacher. He taught almost entirely from the Bible. Christians can benefit from knowing his struggle to follow Christ while facing discouraging opposition, betrayal by friends, mob violence, imprisonment and repeated failure. He responded with faith, hope and charity"
 
The Author of the above book, Mr Denver C. Snuffer Jr,  would like to present three talks to Christians, one in California, one in Texas and one in Alberta. In his owns words Mr Snuffer has said...
 
" I will pay my own travel costs, and do not expect or want to be compensated for speaking. The audience should be comprised of Christians, and not Mormons. I would like to record the talks and make them available on-line for others to hear. The size of the venue is unimportant. I would prefer a theological school, but would welcome any venue with a Christian audience, including a church if one were available.
 
I converted to the LDS church when 19 years old, and served faithfully for 40 years. Among other things, I was an Elder’s Quorum President, Sunday School President, Bishop’s counselor, Ward Mission Leader, High Councilor, and Graduate Institute Instructor. I taught for three years at BYU Education Week on the Brigham Young University campus in Provo, Utah. I graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1980, and have practiced law for 36 years. I have authored 15 volumes on Mormonism, including Mormon history and doctrine. I was excommunicated for publishing a book challenging the traditional LDS church narrative of its history, and offering a new interpretation of the events. My excommunication was directed by Elder Russell M. Nelson, current President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the LDS church.
I will be addressing the topic of Joseph Smith as a significant Christian figure, worthy of considering alongside all other important Christian thinkers, writers and martyrs"
