    Yes, Arthur, "Die Climbing" is a courageous LIFE moto. We are praying for you along your suggested strategy. I shared the phrase "productive pain" with a friend yesterday. She said she likes that phrase better than "God works it all out for good" because it acknowledges the hardship even if the pain is past. Thank you for sharing your journey with us as we learn to pray for you and watch the Good Dad at work. Sending love to you and Ann along with the prayers!

    I salute you Mr. Burk.
    May you be strong and courageous. May doubt not come near you. May you stay hidden under His shadow. May you become all He has written in your scroll. May you fly into the storm and go into higher dimensions than ever before. May you be about your Father's business. May you be unoffendable.
    God Bless you for speaking truth.

    Arthur, thank you so very much for ALWAYS going for the gold...the treasures in the darkness or the pain. Thank you for leading and teaching this Tribe in and from the most challenging of places. I pray that The Lord will give you the treasures in the darkness and the riches stored in secret places and that you will KNOW HIM in ever deepening ways! Blessings!❤️

    There is a strategic article on C. R. Oliver's Zadok website titled "Carrying in the Spirit" which I feel is my directive for Arthur for this season for - It's not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord. Shalom and Blessings

    Arthur,
    I have walked through this journey with both my parents, first go round got lost in lala land for 15 years (-100 on exhorter scale), several years before the second journey I let Father Father me and it was a different journey, I landed in your teachings and learned and still learning to walk through the pain and Father is faithful to unpack us when we align with Him, and you sir know how to sync and align! Continued courage and strength in abundance to you! Praying as you have outlined and asked! Die climbing is worth it all !!!

    Arthur, thankyou for the clarity you bring to us about your situation. Embracing and unpacking our design through pain and heartbreak is a concept most of us don't recognize as needing to be done. Die climbing, what a great image. The Lord is your rope, your netting and your sure foot hold. I love the picture. Thank you for the specifics on how to pray for you, Anne and your family. I bless you Arthur and Anne with strength, courage and God's expectations for you both as your designs are unpacked and your destinies are fulfilled. With much love, Teri

    Well, it is a tribute to you as a teacher and a relentless proponent of the values you've listed here, that I haven't been tempted one single time to pray for healing & an easy outcome. It literally didn't occur to me . In the old days, I would always have prayed for the removal of pain, the quick fix of the problem, and the least trauma possible. However, having been steeped in your stuff for some years, as you've been sharing about Ann with us over these last months, the only clear thing to pray was for basically what you've listed here. For the fullness of what the Lord has planted as treasure in the midst of this, and for triumphant process through all of it, in dominion and grace. So kudos to you as a teacher, and I will pray with these specific directions that you've listed here, as well.

    Hey Arthur, my thoughts and prayers are with you. All that comes to mind is that nothing is wasted. About a decade ago I emailed you regarding ‘ mercy in the marketplace’.. listening to your teaching, trying to get a hold on my design, etc...Didn’t do a real good job.. had a physical and emotional breakdown, followed by husband passing a couple of years ago at an age too young to be acceptable.
    There’s been a bucket-load of pain, prayers and pleading,sadly, mostly to no avail at the time, or even now. Through my eyes.
    Mostly the thing I hold close now is that He is a good good Father. The person I am today I hardly recognise . Don’t know if I’m happier, or better at doing life. Only that I wouldn’t be who I am now without all that ‘Joseph’ sh**t happening. And deep deep down inside there has been massive transformation .
    Hang in there Arthur and may God bless you in ways you never even dreamed of.

    Dear Arthur
    Our family is also currently on this journey. That it is Father filtered rings constantly in my heart. I purchased your teaching on the adrenals and kidneys.
    I have just one question regarding “He is trying to grow me.” Trying implies a possibility of failure. The dictionary says - difficult or annoying; hard to endure. Is there a possibility of failure?
    Blessings

    I’ll have to ponder this now as I had to work at believing otherwise from several sources... although, this is what my “insides” said was true. It’s helpful b-c it does not get us kicking AGAINST God’s plan. I appreciate this. Thank you.

    I recognise that everything is God-filtered. Events that happened are ways of training me and unpacking His design for me to see. I can accept that. I even communicate some of these teachings to my 95 yr old mum who, otherwise seemingly alert when awake, has for the past coming 3 years been bed-ridden, cannot eat, talk or move, effects from 2 brain haemorrhages. She is a Child of God too. What bothers me is how to 'assess' her spiritual life/ keep her spiritually growing and why hasn't God taken her home yet seeing how frustrating life can be for her? Comments?

    God kept telling me to chill out and go with the flow. My husband accepted his new role better than anyone else around him. His pleasures were much simpler things, holding hands and enjoying the moment. It was a small world. No longer an outstanding Professor of Statistics, but the very best hand holder around. God bless you to find your special moments to share together.

    To be chosen, is to be already equipped;
    To be further equipped, is to be chosen.
    With such an upgrade comes both commendation and encouragement from the Lord Jesus, who walked this road to the uttermost.
    As goes the leader, so may the followers.
    Thank you and bless you Arthur.

    Thank you for acknowledging the purpose of pain is a part of the fathering process to grow us in our design. I sometimes wonder what He has in store - am I designed for something greater than what I’m doing now? There has to be a purpose for all the pain.

    Friend, you made me cry. Not from sadness (well maybe a little sadness) but from joy in celebrating the transformation you are experiencing. He is taking your pain and transforming it into something eternal, something that stands the test of time and redemptive. One of my favorite quotes by Richard Rohr is “...pain that is not transformed is transmitted.”

    Thank you for laying out this prayer strategy. I hope you don't mind me using it for a painful situation my family is walking through. It has put into words what my spirit has been trying to speak through my soul but mouth has only groaned and cried "God's will be done, grow us into the fullness of our design with no wasted pain.

    I’m thinking of the many flavors of His grace...not to avoid pain and difficulty, but to plough through the rocky soil to release it to yield its fruit. And to use the stones for a monument to His faithfulness...to the praise of His glory.
    Praying here that you and Ann both will be seasoned with His grace, and feel His tender kisses in the dark...and that they will release sparks of joy in assurance that you are both beloved of the Father.

    Dear Arthur,
    Oh my goodness how we still need to hear this! It is such an encouraging word to me. It’s amazing to “know-what we “know” about inner healing, but fail to miss what Father is trying to unpack in us. I too am trying to learn this valuable lesson in life! I agree to pray for you and your precious wife just as you have asked. Blessings for you to hear Him above the crowd!
