New Pain stopped me Cold!!

I haven't posted  on my blog for  a while  now~~~sadly the reason is  More  Chronic Pain came into my life and it did stop me Cold!   The words have felt "Stuck" inside me~~normally I would be frustrated about this and push myself to  find the words, but the New Pain is  literally a Pain in the Neck and it hurts  a hundred times more than my usual Sciatica Pain that stays with me every single day.

So here I am--back at my Blog and trying to get "Going'  again~~as this New Pain hangs around, I  am learning new lessons about coping with More Pain in my life~~things like its okay to give myself permission to relax more, have less stress, don't fret so much!

Its not easy to struggle  with more  Pain in my Life---but I look around me and know that I am very blessed in so many ways~~and this is what helps  me to keep pushing, don't let Pain be the only thing about me.

Wow~~I did it!!  God be with each of you and know you are in my prayers...



  1. You know that I relate to you, my dear friend. I go for weeks and weeks without posting-- I am "consistently inconsistent". And that's okay. It is what it is.

    Let us keep in mind Cor 4: "We possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in frail, human vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.

    We are pressed on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not crushed; we suffer and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;

    We are pursued (BY PAIN!) but not deserted;

    We are struck down to the ground, but never destroyed."

    Because God is your source of strength, you have somehow, picked yourself up, and begun again. That's what we do.

    Pain Won't Beat Us, Girl.


  2. Judi~~
    Such a JOY to see your NAME~~~you have been on my heart so much lately because of the horrendous Pain flying all around you, over you, and turning your life upside down...... I am being 'Taught" lessons each day~~~and I continue being humbled over and over again.....

  3. Martha, I want to give a thumbs up to what Judi said. She has written a key scripture that is so foundational to living with chronic pain. I am in a meeting right now and my break is over but just had to read this post. Praying.

  4. Betty~~
    Each time I see Judi's name, I know God has placed a message in her heart that she shares with us. The message carries Scripture~~that she clings to daily as PAIN seems to cover her up--almost forming a solid WALL that very few can push through. I am in such awe of this courageous woman who takes time from her journey to keep me lifted in prayers! From the moment I met Judi-- I felt so "at home" with her genuine friendship and now as we both walk the road with Pain constantly at our side~~there is a depth of Blessings I will be forever grateful for. God works in such wondrous ways---just as I treasure the wonderful Friendship I have with you and so many others---we are here to pray, laugh, cry, and LISTEN to each other's struggles and triumphs! Today as I read your posting and saw Judi's words again--it hit me that I saw her "sharing" my words---PAIN WON'T BEAT US GIRL!!! Talk about feeling the incredible strength we gain in Faith---it is Tremendous...... Thank you for the prayers Betty! love you, martha
