I had a raging migraine today. They have been getting better, but I could feel this one before I ever opened my eyes. I was hoping I could sleep it off before time to get up, but should have known better. I finally forced myself up to take emergency meds and laid back down, keeping my eyes closed until the last possible minute. The meds weren’t working. Thump thump thump, right behind my right eye. Poppa, what brought this on?! I drug myself out of bed and worked with the lights off, blinds drawn, and a whole lot of prayer.
I made it through the day and now I needed to read my evening devotional and write this blog. Help me Poppa, my head is still pounding. I can place my fingers over my right eye and it feels as if it has a heartbeat, oh the pain. Thump thump thump. Poppa, what brought this on? Worry. Things completely out of my control, but completely in my Father’s hands. Oh Poppa! Will I ever learn?!
The storms of life can be completely raging around us and we can still have peace when we draw close to God. We also have the Holy Spirit as our compass to navigate through the storm when it is so dark we can’t see our way. “18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; 19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.” Isaiah 32:18:19 I am so blessed that my Father is so patient with me and I’m thankful that He’s given me the perseverance to keep going (especially after I’ve fallen). Are you in a storm right now? Allow the Holy Spirit to be that peace and the compass that navigates you through it. Those storms are watering the grounds that will produce your harvest. Keep pressing, God knows what He is doing! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
