health update--answered prayers

Hi my dear Friends,

I have been meaning to write this post for some time now.

You may remember a few months ago when I asked for prayer for my burning mouth syndrome. I was at the end of my rope. After 4 years of constant burning in my mouth, I thought I was going to lose it. I hesitated on reaching out because I don't talk about my lupus, sjourgren's, or other pain easily. But, God really nudged me to put it out there.

That week, I spent a copious amount of time researching on the good old internet since I was so frustrated by the lack of success with what my doctors had suggested.

I found a website with fellow burning mouth suffers. Many recommend a supplement for nerve pain. I bought it immediately. It worked immediately.

Immediately as in a couple of days after asking for prayer!

I didn't want to update too quickly as many treatments for my various lupus symptoms work for a bit and then fail much to my dismay.

However, I am still having great success and I want to give thanks for your sweet prayers in that time of need.

Praise God!
Katie, that is truly wonderful news.
May God continue to grant you relief from this pain.
And thsnk you for sharing your need with us so we could pray for you, and then rejoice with you and be ministered to when God answered prayers.
It is hard to let others bear our burdens but when we do, He blesses us mightily.
I have experienced it many times myself.
God bless.
Love from,
