As I've mentioned in the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've had many a night when I've had trouble sleeping. Last night was one of those nights.
Being extremely tired, I let a friend on Facebook (FB) know that although I was happy to be chatting with them, I needed to go get some sleep.
After going offline, and getting ready for bed, I climbed in. I thought I would quickly drift off.
Instead, every time I thought I drifted off, I would once again find myself awake. I'd look at my clock... and find out that it was only a few minutes later, than before.
All night long, I tossed and turned. Tossed and turned. Tossed and turned... over and over, again.
By the time I was to get up and get moving, I was truly exhausted. Still, I got up.
Well, at least... sort of. In one way.
When I went to stand up, I found I had pain. Extreme pain!
In fact, when I went to stand on my leg, I couldn't do it. There was too much pain, to even straighten my leg out.
I didn't want to lay down, for the pain was extreme. I wondered if I would be able to get back up, again.
So, I sat on the edge of my bed. I picked up my telephone and called my chiropractor's office.
He has changed his work schedule and no longer gives treatment to patients on Mondays. I left a message.
I'm sure when the message was heard, they could tell I was in severe pain. His office receptionist called me back, letting me know that he was in doing other work for the day, and wanted me to come to be treated by him.
For this, I thanked them. And, praised God!
Once off the phone, I thanked Him.
Just as we are told to do, in Psalm 136:26, "O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever."
Yes, there are many verses in the Bible that tell us to give thanks unto God, for His mercy endures forever.
After getting off the phone, I was still seated on the edge of my bed. I leaned over, and prayed.
When my prayer was completed, I went to try and stand up again.
This time, I was able to stand up, even though I still had some pain. Hallelujah!
The pain was still there, but was much weaker. I was actually able to begin walking. For this, I must admit I was extremely grateful!
After showering, etc., I made my way to my chiropractor's office.
There, my chiropractor and I discussed the situation. By then, I was able to walk without any deformity.
We agreed upon what we thought the problem was.
You see, ever since that awful collision in 1980, where the tractor trailer driver hit the school bus I was driving, I've had problems with my spine. And, have had much trouble with twisted vertebrae from time to time.
This was one of those times, again.
After having my adjustments done, I felt much better! Hallelujah!
For this, I will always be thankful! Thankful for His love, and mercy.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
