Yesterday was a rough day for me. After a wonderful weekend, I woke up early Monday morning in severe pain that can only be coming from one thing — a bowel blockage. I waited as long as possible but then finally decided to take something for the pain. Thankfully things calmed down a bit, only to restart again in the afternoon. So I spent the day in bed and tried different things to help with the blockage. Prune juice has become a good friend of mine, but you do what you have to do..haha! Hopefully, I will not have to go to the hospital for this and all will be much better soon.
God willing, I am supposed to visit my best friend Sara next week in Texas and I really want to be able to go so please pray that all is well before then. It will be a big deal since it is the first time traveling anywhere major since my surgery, but I am looking forward to it. It will be a very low-key trip since I still do not have lots of energy but I am excited about spending time face to face with Sara, watching our favorite movies and television shows, and maybe do a bit of shopping since I have to visit MimiBella’s Boutique while I am there. 😉 I would greatly appreciate your prayers for healing and pain relief over the next few days.
As I have not been feeling well, the Lord has been encouraging me with His word and the verse He keeps bringing to my mind lately is Psalm 73:26 which says,
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.”
That is such a beautiful promise from the Lord and encouraging to any soul who is feeling weak today. No matter how weak and frail you may feel, God is with you. He knows and understands, and will embrace you as His and comfort you with His love.
Thanks so much for your prayers friends, and please let me know how I cam be praying for you.
