I'm sure many will not understand this for what it is....
....but today, I was in such agony. My back pain was horrible. I was sure that I would have gone to bed last night, awoken this morning to be a little better than yesterday. That wasn't the case. Not even a little. I felt at least as bad as yesterday.
I went in to see my physician, who checked on the baby, and made sure that I hadn't done any serious damage to my spine. He wrote up papers for me to see PT, but I didn't feel like I was supposed to go that route. But, I had them in case tomorrow or the next day were like today...no progress.
Well, I called this amazing girlfriend to ask for prayer. She has The Gift. She prayed. We talked. I got off the phone still feeling crippled.
I laid down on the floor. And stretched. A little more. And some more. My husband helped me to stand. I felt a little better.
I walked around. Sat some more. Feeling maybe 10% better. Felt lead to give it another go.
More gentle stretching. Less pain.
More stretching. Less pain.
And here I sit. At least 70% better.
Do you know what's funny? Several times today, I tried to do the stretches but had to stop. Because doing so made me involuntarily holler out in pain. "Ughyyyaahhh!!" I couldn't do it. He had to do it. And He did.
Praise be to God! He heals.
