Pain yet Praise

This is how I feel.  I am in so much pain, I can't even describe it.  There are times where I hurt so bad, I break out in a sweat, I feel sick to my stomach and I feel like I'm going to pass out.  It's horrible.  This happened during the night when I got up to go to the little girl's room and this morning when I got up.  It was just the pits.

I went to my pain management doctor today and they are concerned that I have a new injury and so I'm going to have an x-ray and an MRI as soon as they can get it scheduled.  She gave me stronger pain pills and I'm praying that they help with the pain better.  I'm also praying that it's not a new injury. My discs are so bad anyway, I don't need to add to the problems I already have.  Pray for me, dear readers, if you think of it.

My Ladies Bible study was last night and I was determined to go. . .and I did! When I got there, the other leaders prayed over me and as the night wore on, I felt better.  It was really a blessing.  We watched the Beth Moore video last night and, I'm telling you, that woman just ministers to my heart so much because she loves the Lord!  My group was the same - they minister to my heart, too.  I have the most wonderful women in my group and we are able to share openly from the heart and learn the Word of God - what is better than that?  I'm so thankful that the Lord touched my body and reduced the pain enough to where I could go - I wouldn't have missed it for the world!

Tomorrow morning is my prayer meeting and I'm really praying that I will be able to go.  I'm not particularly good in the mornings with this pain - it hits me the worse in the morning and the evening - but I'm going to pray about it and just hope I will be able to go.

I'm creating an index card file filled with Scriptures.  I'm going to have Scriptures that mean a lot to me and Scriptures that apply to certain subjects so I can refer to them when I or someone I know needs encouragement.  I think it's really important to hide the Lord's Word in our heart, because He tells us to! There's something about knowing the Lord's Word in your heart and mind that is so comforting!

I'm going to bed and pray that tomorrow my pain level is a lot less and that I can go to my prayer meeting.  I'm also going to praise my Lord, despite my pain, because He is my King of Kings, my Lord of Lords and He is worthy to be praised!

God bless you - Julie


  1. Aw Julie, I hope it's not a new injury too. I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I have degenerative disc disease in my neck, and I have great pain only when it flares up. I can't imagine being in that kind of pain all the time. How I pray your doctors are able to get to the bottom of this soon, and get you some relief...

    Love, Kathryn

  2. I am praying for you. The damp weather doesn't help it much either, but I still enjoy looking at it. I do find that a HOT bath helps me if I take one as soon as I get out of bed. Which pain pill are you on?

    I do hope you got to go to your Bible Study. I missed a worship conference with Chris Lizott last night because I was hurting so bad and Jack was wiped out from dialysis. I was so bummed.

    Anyway, praying for you today.




Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
