Headache!!!!

Today, I woke up with the one of the most horrendous headaches! It has been months since my head has hurt this bad. I think I slept wrong or something. When I woke up I could barely move my neck and the entire back of my head felt like it was going to explode! Charlie massaged it for me and then I took a hot shower to try to work out some of the tightness. It relieved it enough that I was able to go to work. Now, I just can't seem to get my thoughts focused. I have asked Charlie to pray, and I will ask you too. Please say a prayer for me that God will move this headache or just give me the strength to bear it.

There is a song that has been on my mind the past couple of weeks. It is called "It Didn't Come to Stay". The words are beautiful.

It Didn't Come to Stay
Sickness must be present for healing to take place
Lives must be broken so they can be restored
We must stop looking at our hard times like they are dead end roads
But avenues to prove that he is Lord!
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
The Lord will move that mountain if you ask
The trials that we see today won't last
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
If I should live by sight I would be beaten down
Because I can't see past these walls of circumstance
But faith will be my substance and my hope is in the Lord
And He will turn my sorrow into dance
Oh He will turn my sorrow into dance!
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
The Lord will move that mountain if you only ask
The trials that we see today won't last
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
Weeping may endure for the night
Oh but I'll find my joy tomorrow, tomorrow
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
The Lord will move that mountain if you only ask
The trials that we see today won't last
It didn't come to stay it came to pass
**After I wrote this post I searched through my old posts because I wanted to listen to a video that I knew that I had posted with The Isaacs singing It Is Well. I listened to the video, and then I just happened to scroll down and read the previous post. It made me think about everything that I've been through this year. How at the time I wrote the post I didn't know why I was having sleepless nights and waking up with headaches. I do know now, and last night was the first night that it has happened since the elders prayed for me this past summer. I know it was God that led me to read that entry. I will not give Satan the victory today! I will overcome. Also, take the time to read the Proverbs 31 devotional that I referenced that day.

I am praying for you. It is scary when you feel like God has removed something from you and to be tried like this but remember God has moved for you and this is just a trial of faith. Love you

What a testimony Krista! This is awesome. My daughter Shannon has headaches like this and she was told by Brother Forest that she will look back and wonder where they were one day. That has came to pass but ever so often they creep back. I agree with you, I believe this is a test of our faith. I am praying for you always!!!
