Constant Pain

July 7th 2010

Today is the third day I have hurt.  I can’t describe this, as it is just all over constant body pain.  I have become so accustomed to living in pain every day that it only surprises me when I don’t hurt.  Yet the constant pain I have been in the last three days has simply become overwhelming.

When I was in the midst of my 3 surgeries the pain I had was so severe it is impossible to describe to someone.  What I say to doctors is that on the pain scale of 1-10 childbirth is a 5 to me, despite the fact that most woman would call it a 10.  The worst pain most mothers have been in is nothing near what I experienced during those times.  When I was in the midst of it I was held up by God’s promise of comfort and peace.  No matter how much I hurt I knew He was my sufficiency, He fulfilled His promise to carry me through the fire.  Considering that, I must remember that He is still doing so now.  I can withstand this because He is going to carry me through it.  He will fulfill that promise to me as He does for everyone who belongs to Him.

These promises are made to all who belong to Him, and He will fulfill them if we call on Him to do so.  Regardless of why we are in constant pain, He will answer that call.  His comfort, peace, strength, shelter, and sufficient supply can always belong to us.  When we pray for those things which He has promised He will always answer those prayers, and I will once again do just that so He can carry me through.

  5. You know Martha & I understand completely! I never expected to have had 3 back surgeries & chronic nerve damage that causes yucky pain. 23 years I’ve been struggling. Until I struggled into addiction. Now, if I miss a dose of Tylenol & muscle relaxant, I sure know it (like right now, actually). I will never understand why this is my journey, but the load is so much lighter with this internet community I love so dearly! I must also continue to work a program of recovery, as I believe addiction cannot be cured. But, it can be managed with my faith in God & myself. You, too, have a mission in this life. To be an awesome prayer warrior. To be an awesome online friend. You help so many with your constant vigilance & positivity on life. Thank-you, my sweet friend, and I pray you are feeling better today. : )
