Ugh! I hate tension headaches! I don’t know which comes first, the neck or the sinus pain, but they all hurt at the same time and make me want to crawl into a hole.
I know what’s causing me stress. Have you ever felt faced with “doing the hard thing” when you really don’t want to? I know what has to be done and I know God will see me through it in every way, but my spirit is just twisting away inside, throwing a tantrum like a cranky 2 year old.
So I retreat to my prayer room. I look at the promises on my wall:
👉🏻I am more than a conqueror in Christ
👉🏻He will fight for me
👉🏻He has already met every need
I remember the days, weeks and months of crying out to him in this room, begging to change my thoughts about my body, food, and making a lifestyle change. I remember feeling like my prayers were hitting the ceiling.
And then I recount ALL the ways he has exceedingly and abundantly poured out grace, mercy and love on me- just a whiney kid.
I crank up the worship music, stretch out and Breeeeeaathe. I reset my thoughts to gratitude and peace. Thank God we have the opportunity to reset and reboot life EVERY DAY!
