The whole day has passed now without me taking any pain medicine at all. I have pain in my collar bone area, and back but none in my arm. Whatever is wrong with me is strange, and sees to be moving around to different areas.
I have had an x ray of my spine. I will be getting a x pay of my shoulder and arm tomorrow. I have been seeing a chiropractor and things are improving from the result of his treatment through God. I really need to have an MRI done but I have to wait until I get the x rays dumb insurance rules most current these days. I had a doctor appointment last week, and I am going back to see him again this week as well. I will be getting a scrip to have a MRI during that office visit with y doctor. Thank you tea for praying for e. I want to ask again for anyone to put e on a prayer list, I would greatly appreciate that.
The Apostle Paul dealt with an "affliction" and prayed for it to be taken away and it was not. I feel we must model ourselves after him and learn to let go and let God help us through our pain. Such a wonderful topic and so relevant to us as Christians in pain!

Thank you SARAHTAIT for your reply. As I was typing (what I typed below) I felt that people were reading my post. Then after I hit the post tab I saw that you not only had read my post but replied as well. God is so good, and as we do His will (that is as for in my case writing this post) many peple can be blessed as the result of doing what He asks of us. By you sharing what you did with the team will help many people, for this team is large. Many people don't post, but countless people read this team page.
God asked me to post what I did to create this thread. I had many things to do after I woke up. As I opened my lap top there were other things I needed to address. But I put some of it aside and typed out what God wanted me to share with my team members. As the result you were touched enough to write something too. This is how God works through us to help one another. Let His spirit shine though us team!!!
I have been in server pain since January 18th 2012. From the first minute of my pain I prayed to Jesus to take it away or give me the grace to endure it. As I praised Jesus, as I talked to HIm, and as I quoted a verse fro the bible , and as I prayed to Him He became present within my pain. Although the pain had not decreased I felt His Holy Spirit within my heart. The pain was so intense back on Jan. 18th I felt as though I could not live through it. This pain scared me! As the minutes passed I called my husband, mom, and my friend Griff. As each second passed hours seemed to form around each electrical stab within my ankle. Then after about 15-20 minutes the pain ended as quickly as It had begun.
Since Jan.18th endless nights of pain. At times I lie on my couch just crying seeking God's peace within my unbearable pain.
I told myself I would not waste this pain which I had found myself in. So from the beginning I asked God to help e to grow with His grace, and find the spirit of joy as the result of this awful pain. I praise God for what He has done in my pain and as the result of my pain! For it is HIM alone that i have been able to grow and learn as I have. Yet, dear friends let me be clear, I had to seek HIm, and I had to make some decisions. I made God bigger than anything else through this whole thing.
I encourage you to seek Jesus while you are in pain, and see what you find!
Dear God you came to me with this thought (what I wrote below) and I presented it to the team just as you requested. Now God I ask you, I beg you to create something wonderful, something grand of of my words. Not to lift myself up, never to give attention to myself, But God I ask this for your name to be glorified through my words. Dear God I know there are so many people on this team who are hurting. They are suffering from emotional and physical pain. They are in despair from the loss of a loved one. Some people are desply suffering from a tragedy. God let your light shine from a dark and dreary place of their pain, and let it be clear that you are there. Let them see you in the morning, let them feel you within their darkness, and dear God let them pray to you while they are weeping. God you have brought me their pain within my heart, and I feel so blessed and honored to be used by you. My prayer God is through their pain they will grow closer to you. I pray that my team takes your extended hand. More than anything else God I want my team members to believe that your love and healing starts only be seeking You while they are hurting. God you have asked me to write this post for a reason... let your power be known!!!
