    Hi Speedyj! - FWIW - you should shorten your videos.:) Way to much to digest in one sitting.
    one or two questions at the most IMO. In this Christian Board venue you will lose folks about 2 or 3 minutes into your presentation.

    I made it all the way through.

    RE: Saying "I'm fine" when we really aren't.

    I have tried to be blatantly honest after a stroke and two episodes of heart failure the truth about my issues and it didn't go over to well with folks kind of avoiding asking me "How are you" So it takes wisdom. What I concentrate on now is communicating my improvements and thanking people for their prayers. And God has indeed restored a great deal of my health, hopefully with more to come.

    RE: unbelief in the believers life (sounds like an oxymoron) :) :

    It happens. In my case e.g. it's no so much "can God take care of my health issues" but "will He" I know He can.

    So it's that element of trust that I am in His hands. Of course that doesn't stop me from storming the gates of heaven and making my requests known to Him. Yes it's selfish prayer but it has strengthened and expanded my prayer life to well beyond my own needs which may be His way to increase our prayer life.

    Also, I have a stubborn streak remaining. I must be a glutton for punishment (to quote a cliche) :)

    I know, I'm trying to make them shorter - thanks for watching all the way through. I did manage to make one about 5 minutes about why God wants our hearts, which is a challenging idea -

    To respond to the rest of what you presented - that's very brave of you to do, and I'm glad you're on that track. I have health stuff that also didn't get answered when I know God could've, so I can empathize. Definitely going to be praying for you and others like you in this - have you read 2 Corinthians 12:9-10? That has helped me a bit, but it's still a tough idea and all.

    Re: video length. It all depends on what your goal is. If it's too get across a small truth, then shorter videos are better. If it's to make money and get your videos ranked high on searches, longer is better.

    YouTube changed their algorithm a while back. Views are not important. It's watched time. So one view of 30 minutes is as good as three views of 10 minutes.
