The enemy of my soul is still at it. He's doing all he can to keep me from keeping my word to add prayer to Lent. He is not succeeding! Let me give you a rundown of the last two days. Yesterday morning I awoke with a bit of a headache. I am prone to migraines, so I followed my routine for this scenario. Eat, drink lots of water, add medicines and an icepack to my forehead are the usual tactics. But this headache didn't go away. It continued with varying degrees of intensity so I proceeded to sit in front of the TV, dozing as needed, producing no work.
I ran thru my phone address book and asked the Lord to show me what I can do with the state I was in. As I read over some of the names, He impressed on me to pray. I did. Note to self, even when you don't feel like it, God can still use you.
Ok, I knew the enemy stole most of yesterday from me. Today, I woke up with that same groggy feeling, but I knew the enemy would not get a second day. I got up earlier than usual (for me) and proceeded to make out a grocery list to cook a meal for a family in need. It was nothing fancy, but having something to focus on other than poor me worked out great.
And I didn't have a headache all day.
