Suffering and in pain // 19-09-23

“I am suffering and in pain. Rescue me, O God, by your saving power. Then I will praise God’s name with singing, and I will honour him with thanksgiving.” Psalms‬ ‭69‬:‭29‬-‭30‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This verse seems very apt for me this morning! I’ve currently got a tooth infection that escalated yesterday morning. The pain went from a bearable 2 to a 9 and praise God I managed to get an emergency appointment. Looks like the tooth will have to come out but not until the infection has gone, so I’ve got a week of antibiotics and will have to manage the pain as best I can. For anyone else suffering physical or emotional pain right now, this has been a reminder to me to pray. This won’t last forever and there is praise and thanksgiving to come! I’m not good for much else today but I can certainly use this time to pray so if you’ve got any prayer request feel free to message me 🙏🏼👆🏼
