Denise:

At Judgement Day, there IS a risk, "well, you DID have Logos, right?'. Ha.


We can fight over which version is required? 😉

Larry Parker:
Pain is the enemies best distraction when it goes on and on, never stopping.

+1 Yes Praying (while humanly not like nor understand, Thanking God plus dreaming/praying for God's outpouring too). Thankful to read about baptisms on the streets in Minneapolis Big Smile

Larry Parker:

Maybe I should keep at least a bare bones copy of Logos for the Judgement Day?  Ick!

One option is giving away your current Library set of resources and features. Bare Bones copy option is Logos 8 Basic with many Free Books. Thankful for my demonstration account having an order total of $ 0.00 that includes Logos 8 Fundamentals (free gift of Logos 7 Fundamentals from a Logos 8 Upgrade plus coupon to "purchase" special upgrade). Thankful for couple coupons that were used to "purchase" Bibles. Suggest discussing give away with Faithlife Customer Service.

Keep Smiling Smile

Very sorry to hear about your condition. We are quite tough and so fragile at the same time. I was in a traffic accident last year (rear ended), and the constant pain was so bad I very nearly started screaming. The only relief came when I pointed my elbow directly over my head with my hand behind my head. Believe me, I tried every possible position to find that one. Thankfully, it eventually subsided, and I'm now pain-free.

I know a young lady who might be very appreciative and thankful to receive a Logos library. She recently told me she was beginning to take a more serious and committed approach to the Bible and was doing studies with a group of friends. If you haven't made a decision yet, I would be happy to cover the transfer expense. I pray you can receive the healing you need, either complete or at least sufficient to lead a productive life.

Larry, my heart broke for you as I read your story in this thread. I applaud you for your generosity to try to help someone less fortunate. May the Lord give you the grace you need in the days ahead.

A difficult story. May the Lord strengthen you.

A few days ago I entered the world of Logos, I have barely managed to buy the most basic (fundamentals), because in my country (third world) the conditions are not very favorable economically. If you still can't find someone to give your books to, it would be helpful to receive them for the use of preaching and teaching. I don't understand how books are given or received but if possible it would be helpful.

Larry Parker:

Said very well, thank you.  Pain is the enemies best distraction when it goes on and on, never stopping.  The doctors put me on Fentanyl patches for two years and it dissolved a lot of my bottom teeth and ruined my heart.  I go into massive afib's a lot now.  Sometimes several times a day. My heart rate can also be in the 150's for days.

I've read about the Azusa Street revival of 1906 a lot.  It was prophesied by William Seymour that another would occur about 100 years after that one, bigger and not confined to a warehouse.  Now I'm seeing people seeing in the spirit a tidal wave coming towards our planet of God's Glory.  I am dreaming big.  The enemy has been given a chance for a short while, but a revival is coming I believe.  Things are very weird now, but is perfect for what Revelation tells of the future.  I hope I live to see God's Glory hit and hit strong.  Storm

My heart grieves for you, Larry. In my man willed life I was a physician, however, in my God willed life I am a Peer Recovery Specialist. I caution against the use of opioids they're very addictive. I would counsel considering electrical stimulation and non opioid pain relievers. I  still use many of my paper Bibles. Before my facility with Logos, I used Logos to search for the scripture the Lord would have me meditate on and to find cross references. I still often use it in this way. So, I suggest you keep enough of your library to assist in your devotional study.

I pray you recover your health. God can use any situation for His Glory and our blessing. His Love is the power that overcomes every circumstance. The accuser is always looking for ways to disconnect us from the blessings of God. Your motives are noble, but consider well your options, be wise.

To God be the Glory,

Beloved

Be strong and of good courage brother.  Dont throw out the baby with the bathwater to coin an old phrase either.  Logos 9 is coming and I think it may offer some new functionality for those of us wanting simplicity and ease of use.

I use Wordsearch to do some simple reading and buy much cheaper books/commentaries but Logos is my desired Go to resource for Bible study.

God bless you as you recover and we all head to Jesus in the midst of these trying virus times.  Glad you have your bibles and the real hope of revival in mind.  I was encouraged reading that and I sense your struggle to heal and also use Logos is real.

Bless you and your family, loved ones and medical people too.

May Jesus come along side you and heal you real good and give you the desires of HIS heart for you.

Our Lord knows what you are facing.  When I was at my lowest point and even despaired of my pain (and could not feel or see recovery) someone sent this to me and I send it to you now.  It literally saved my life...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i867dGtkIFo.

p.s. 

Larry I had two back surgeries within 2 weeks this past year and I am thankful to NOT be bedridden. I worry about a fall or further debilitation or if anyone will hire an assistant pastor wannabee at 58 who gives new meaning to the word "latebloomer".  I cheer myself with knowing our Lord faced far worse in this life and folks like Daniel and Moses didnt get reach their best years until much later in life. 

I am sorry you are struggling...and I know firsthand (somewhat) what you are enduring.

being able to right oneself in bed or even get out of bed without pain is a challenge, let alone trying to make Logos work efficiently, quickly and as expected/hoped for.

I think its great you would consider offering your Logos to someone.  Glad that logos makes it possible and you have received support in here.

Larry, I'm sure many of us who don't post very often, are continuing to pray for you, even though we don't show up on your increasingly difficult to use screen.

Larry I went back and edited my post for you.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i867dGtkIFo  Listen to this and look for Piper's writings in Logos.

https://www.logos.com/product/42757/john-piper-christian-life-and-ministry-collection

May others direct you and may The Holy Spirit keep interceding for you and make it evident to you.  I reach you in Christ and hope you are able to be blessed as I was by Piper's selection set to music.

May the video bless us all even as we pray come Lord Jesus especially for Larry Parker.  ABBA FATHER. We pray this in Jesus name.  Amen

For me Larry the video and presentation was a lightning bolt that saved my life that night.  May it encourage and strengthen you brother.

Beloved Amodeo:

JoshInRI:

I think the Apostle Paul would be pleased by the combination of word and song...and that his letter to the Romans is widely available in Logos.  Piper's inflection and emphasis are breathtaking.  Beloved Amodeo, Sir, it was my pleasure.  How I pray Larry gets to hear it and will weep tears of joy as I did - despite the pain.  God make it so...in Jesus name...and may Logos miraculously become all Larry hopes and wants it to be in each passing minute or day.  In Jesus name...amen.

Stick out tongueI am not a crook...I mean a Calvinist. 

I confess I do appreciate Piper lately more and more these days.
Must be a sign of my advancing years. If its not painful, I hope you chuckle, Mr. Parker (Larry).
