I’m not one who needs attention or someone to “dote” over me. I am not a procrastinator, would consider myself more OCD and busybody.  I’m not one to sit around and do nothing, not even sit and watch TV for that long. The only thing I can do for a while is sitting out by the pool or beach.🏝 That’s where I can relax enjoy the sun, peace & quiet.

Four months ago that changed for me. I have had migraines my whole adult life but have had them under control. I even went in September and had a yearly physical with blood work and all was good! The end of October I was awake all night with a migraine and sinus pressure. Migraine medicine doesn’t help, sinus medicine doesn’t help.  Let’s just say that I’ve been through lots of meds that don’t seem to help. I’ve seen a neurologist, ENT, dentist (all with a different diagnosis) and my wonderful family doctor, who cares the most and trying to help. I’ve had an MRI so at least I know it’s nothing life-threatening. I function, I am not laid up in bed. Some days I feel better and some days I’m literally pushing myself to do what I need to do. If I didn’t push myself, I’m sure I would be worse. I’m not trying to play into the “self-pity” party because I have always been stronger than that, but to be honest, I have laid in bed and cried about it. I don’t like to complain, that’s just not me. I don’t do Facebook post, oh poor me I’m sick etc. In fact, only the people close to me even know about this, until now. 😳  I am a private person.  I’m not writing this to get attention or pity. I’m writing to confess, that’s it’s okay to feel weakness, alone and sometimes to need other people. I’ve heard that confession is good for the soul.

I am learning to BE STILL & KNOW that God has it. To know that HIS GRACE is sufficient and HIS POWER is made perfect in my weakness.

Hopefully, this season is about to be over. I’m learning to rest and be still and not feel lazy about it. To be still in HIM. If it’s a spiritual season, I’m ready to learn what I need to learn and be over it.

This is a hard thing for me to write about because I don’t open myself up like this, maybe it’s what I needed.  I didn’t plan on writing this!

I’m sure I’ve been more irritable and sensitive during these times but I’m trying not to be. I’m tired of it, four months is long enough. I pray that it ends soon. I’m believing in faith that this is the end!!

Just because I need to see a beautiful picture.💙

Enjoying the simple life,

  1. I am learning to be still and knowing He is GOD!! I love how you wrote “Hopefully, this season is about to be over. I’m learning to rest and be still and not feel lazy about it.” I think that’s where some of us fail to be still because we have this nagging sense that we are being lazy. When actually being still and letting God be God is huge!! ❤

  2. Thank you for sharing! Everyone goes through difficult times when they need to lean on others and ask for helping. I hope that things start to brighten up for you! The time that you get to be still and relax might lead you to spend more time learning something new or discovering a new hobby.

  3. This is the second time this week that Ive come across someone writing about learning to be still from being sick. Its good that you’ve been able to see God through all of this. I pray He heals you from the migraines and I’m glad the physicals came back with good results. Stay encouraged and continue gain insight from God while being still.

  4. Beautifully said ❤ I think it's good to vent, and just let out how you're feeling. I'm an intensely private person, but there are times when I just need to get the words out and I feel this incredible sense of euphoria and relief when they are OUT there. I hope this post provides you with the same, and that you tend to lean on friends and family more in times of need. Wishing you much love and healing, and hope that you start to feel comfort soon.

  5. Thank you for sharing! It’s sometimes the part of our story that we don’t want to share that someone else needs to hear. I’m sure your transparency is blessing others. I pray this season and journey will end soon and you will walk in perfect health. Blessings to you! 🦋Keishawna with The Jolly Moments blog

  6. I hope the migraines will get better soon. Have you tried evening primrose oil? My daughter went through a stint with migraines and that is one of the things she was trying when they went away. We weren’t sure if it was that, feverfew (which she was taking at the same time), or just a miracle in answer to prayer.
    It’s good that you’ve opened up. You can encourage those in the community who need it, because now they know that you understand their pain. And who knows, maybe a remedy they suggest might actually help, and you wouldn’t have known about it if you hadn’t opened up about it! Prayers for your healing and ministry.
    And may this lesson in being still continue to follow you through life so you can continue to grow in your knowledge of the Lord.
