I have had a migraine for two days now and to be honest, is tough.
The pain and emotional drain from it tires my body and takes my mind into a dark tunnel. Somehow, I start and feel sad and melancholic and I have thoughts that my life is not good, that I am not enough and that everything is a waste of time and effort. I go to a place in my mind that my husband or any friend finds difficult to enter as I am not myself.
My husband always stands by me and that’s more help than I could ever ask. My head feels like pain and hopelessness and dark all at the same time. What comforts me helps in those moments is the love and support of my husband and my children and the truth of God’s word.
“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.”Psalms 24:1 NLT
When the thoughts of insufficiency and sorrow try to occupy my head I am compelled to remember the truth that:
I don’t carry the world in my shoulders and that all people made by God are cared by Him also, I included.”
Our minds can work out problems and scenarios that feel impossible and alarming, but the truth of God is always wisdom and peace.
Painkillers may help our headache but they will not improve the way we think, but the word of God, scriptures will. Truth sets free.
