I haven’t been posting quite as much lately because I’m down under a terrible migraine for the last 5 days. It’s beating me but I’m not defeated entirely.
I am beginning to pray for healing. Up until now I thought this was selfish but I am realizing it’s not. There are so many people in my life affected by my constant pain and inabilities that I’m going to be praying for a miracle of healing. God is GREAT and CAN perform miracles.
I loved today’s reading and am sharing it.
It explains exactly why I wasn’t comfortable standing taking praise at my Birthday celebration. ALL things through God are possible. I CAN heal through HIM and His grace.

You are reading from the book Twenty Four Hours a Day Hardcover (24 Hours)
In A.A. we must surrender, give up, admit that we’re helpless. We surrender our lives to God and ask Him for help. When He knows that we’re ready, He gives us by His grace the free gift of sobriety. And we can’t take any credit for having stopped drinking, because we didn’t do it by our own willpower. There’s no place for pride or boasting. We can only be grateful to God for doing for us what we could never do for ourselves. Do I believe that God has made me a free gift of the strength to stay sober?
Meditation for the Day
I must work for God, with God, and through God’s help. By helping to bring about a true fellowship of human beings, I am working for God. I am also working with God because this is the way God works, and He is with me when I am doing such work. I cannot do good work, however, without God’s help. In the final analysis, it is through the grace of God that any real change in human personality takes place. I have to rely on God’s power, and anything I accomplish is through His help.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may work for God and with God. I pray that I may be used to change human personalities through God’s help.

Sober Mommy says
Many prayers for you!!
I've suffered from migraines since I was 17. They run in our family. I always have a supply of Imitrex on hand, but there have been times when I've had to go to the ER and had to have heavy doses of pain killers to knock one out. I feel for you, that type of pain keeps you from functioning. I too have prayed for relief, and He will bring it. Thanks for sharing the reading, it was awesome, and for the reminder that without my God, sobriety would not have happened…..
Hope you fEel better soon. Praying for you too
Oooh. Migraines are horrible. I sympathize with you and will join in your prayers for healing. The ONE good thing about going through menopause is that once I was fully in it, the migraines stopped. I occasionally have a bad headache bordering on migraine level now, but not nearly like I used to when all I could do was lie down in a dark quiet room and pray for sleep or death.
