My Pain In The Neck

I've had a migraine/headache for 6 days straig...

I woke up with a headache.  These days it is somewhat unusual – and only happens if I sleep on my neck wrong – or something is out of alignment.  I’ve had sinus pressure, stress related and even bad migraines headaches – but this pain in the neck is different.  It takes the skilled hands of my chiropractor to “fix it” and adjust my neck and spine back into position before I feel better.

It’s funny how a pain in the neck colors everything about the day.  Things are just a little bit more gloomy – situations seem bigger than they really are, food and even coffee doesn’t help.  The little tasks seem more difficult and take longer.  And it gives me true empathy for the chronic pain sufferers out there – who live with some kind of pain every day of their life.  “How do others do it”?  I think to myself.

Some things are not so easily “adjusted” away – like my temporary pain in the neck.  Things like bad circumstances and unexpected events happen to us whether or not we want them to – or are ready for them.  And negative and bad attitudes seem to be on the rise – those that throw their weight around in very ugly ways.  It’s all around us.  Sometimes I’d like to give those people an “attitude adjustment” – but that isn’t possible.

I’m thinking that God would like to shake us up a bit once in a while and give us a reminder that we need His adjustment in our lives to deal with those around us – and mostly to deal with our own bad attitudes of selfishness and complaining.

“Lord, adjust my heart and my mind today.  With your hand on my life, I know I will begin to look at myself and others differently – with much grace and thankfulness.  I know that I will see every day pain and frustration as an opportunity to find grace and share it with others.”

Amen

When was the last time you had to have a personal “attitude adjustment”?  What did God teach you?

 

God Bless

  1. I’m so sorry about your neck. I’ll be praying it goes away quickly. I know what that’s like. I’ve had neck pain for years on and off because of the way I hve to sit at the computer. My dh got me a lap top for my birthday last year and now some of my work can be done on there so my neck is a lot better these days. I’m afraid I am in need of a better attitude these days. When going through trials, it’s not that difficult to stay positive when they are temporary. However, when you’ve had a growing amount of trials in almost every area of your life for over 30yrs, you grow weary. I’m afraid I’m there.

    • Thanks JoJo! I appreciate the prayer – I feel much better since going to the chiropractor this afternoon. Keeping the attitude sweet even while in pain – is very challenging.
