Be Careful What You Pray For

19 Nov

Migraine, migraine go away.
Never ever come any other day.
(Sung to the tune of Rain, Rain Go Away).

I have too many migraines. It’s a constant issue. Please don’t ask what I have tried. The list is long, and I’d rather talk about anything else.

Two of my many beliefs:

  1. I believe in the power of prayer.
  2. God has a sense of humor.

One night, I had a migraine that was a level 10 on a pain scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the worst. I had tried all of the medication for which I am allowed. This was my last possible assistance without going to the emergency room.

I prayed for no migraine as I tried to sleep at midnight.

I woke up at 2 a.m. with no migraine.

Instead … strep throat. Yep, the migraine was gone. Hmmmm…. yet it was not the answer to prayer I had been seeking.

Morale of the story: Beware of what you pray for. God has a sense of humor.
