Reminders Of Blessings Past

One year ago this morning I woke up with a headache. I was also pregnant and had JUST won the horrible battle that I fought with morning sickness.

I did all the typical things one does to cure a headache while pregnant. Hot showers, cold packs, tylenol, massage, and chocolate. After 6 days, I called my doctors. They assumed it to be a hormone fluctuation and gave me a stronger pain medication. The pain was so extreme and so exhausting that I would have rather gone through childbirth. At least I would know that with giving birth it would come to an end. I was beginning to think the headache would never go away.

Weeks later, nothing was changing. I was sent to a neurologist who tried nerve blocks. Talk about pain, that was awful. He sent me for an MRI, which found nothing. (My brain was normal, a shock to many. 😉 ) I tried going to a chiropractor, but the pain became worse after each treatment.

The final diagnosis was, well, they still weren’t sure. Doctors. Gotta love them. The assumption was that it had to be hormones.

All the while, I was praying. Even if it was just for the pain to let up a little if it couldn’t just go away. After 2 months, I had just resolved to live with it. I figured it would go away at childbirth and then I could get back to normal. Mind you, it was February and I wasn’t due until June. But I knew it had to come to an end.

One Saturday I decided to attend a Mini Ladies Retreat at my church. I was in a lot of pain, the lights were bright, and sitting up was very difficult. However, I was so glad to be there. At the end of the prayer service my pastor came back to where I was sitting, wrapped her arms around me, and prayed. I broke down crying. My head started tingling, then it became warm. Just like that, the pain was gone. My neck relaxed, my back was not tense. My face muscles were no longer strained. It was GONE!

I waited a few hours to tell anyone, just to be sure. But it was gone. Not coming back. For a few days I had little twinges here and there, but nothing more. I wanted to shout it from the roof tops! JESUS HEALED ME!!! In fact, I practically did shout it. More than once.

Ever since, whenever I have a slight headache I view it as Noah did the rainbow. A promise that I will NEVER have pain like that again. I pray it away and it really goes away, just like that.

What has God done for you in the past that you still rejoice over?
