This week isn’t easy, it’s the week before I head into a legal mediation for my car accident which occurred three and a half years ago. Already I find my anxiety and pain levels have increased and I know the only answer is to trust that God has my back. I believe in the power of prayer and today I am humbly asking you to pray that I will have the strength, courage and patience to get through this time in a graceful manner.
Anyone who has ever had the misfortune of being involved in a legal case knows it’s not fun. It feels like everything is out of my control, all I can do is be truthful and hope that a settlement can be reached. That’s just plain logical but right now my anxiety wants me to lose control and weep in a corner while hiding from the BIG SCARY unknown.
Suddenly as I’m trying to write how my life has changed since the accident I’m coming up blank. My mind is addled by the pain and the fear. I need to be concise, to share the facts as they are and to clearly convey how this has affected my family and yet……my human nature is kicking in. It could also be PTSD or any other of the diagnoses I’ve been labelled with but in the end the point is I need your prayers.
The Power of Prayer
If you could find it in your heart to pray for me I’d be grateful.
Prayer has worked in my life in the past. The people who prayed for my sobriety, the people who prayed for healing post-accident, the people who pray with me for the things I have needed God to hear…..these prayer warriors have impacted my life.
God is AWESOME and can provide anything…..this time I’m openly asking and with the added power of your voices I know I’ll get through this time intact, able to present myself and still be a loving Mother and Wife for my family.
Right now I’m not strong, I’m a mess inside but have learned to ask for help.
Please pray that I can get the sleep which has been so elusive, that my thoughts will be calm and centred in my faith, that I will not forget to eat to fuel my body, that my medications will help reduce my pain……
Thankfully I have a strong circle of support; my family who loves me, my bff who comes by just to hug me, my long-distance friend who is reviewing my account of events and my darling husband and girls who breath joy into my days.
With these people, your prayers and God I can get through anything.
