headache update and prayer request

About 2 years ago, I made a decision to stop seeking medical treatment for my headaches b/c I didn't want anything (like medication) to stand in the way of my knowledge of what I knew God was going to do in healing me. Near the end of summer I felt called to re-evaluate this decision and I "told" God that I was willing to go back to a Dr. but I wanted Him to make it clear and I even had some specific terms. I bet God just loves it when we pray like that!! :P In December, the Lord answered my prayer to the T and through a prophetic word, I knew which Dr. I needed to go see. So I have been seeing a dentist for the past few months primarily focusing on my jaw with some physical therapy and a splint to get me re-aligned. I am headed in for another appointment this Wednesday morning and I would be greatly blessed by your prayers. Before I see the dental team, I have a cranio-sacral appointment, aka physical therapy for my head. It works with pressure points and the plates of the skull, as well as some of the muscles in my mouth.

This will be the second splint that we have tried so please pray for accuracy. If the splint wasn't made right, pray that God perfects it before Wednesday! The last time I went in for this cranio-sacral therapy I was in so much pain that it knocked me out for two days. I know the treatment is beneficial, but it still hurts. Please pray that God would work through these treatments and bring healing to my body. Thanks!

Here's a fun pic of all the gear I had to wear to get fitted for the splints. I had to do all this twice! It took 4 hours each time!

Hi guys! Sorry I didn't catch the blog til this evening, but I certainly did pray for you, and hope things went well for you! Will keep you in my prayers! It takes a lot of maturity and strength to maintain your faith in the goodness of God when circumstances are difficult, I know. But we know that God is good and He is you so eloquently spoke about on Saturday!Don't lose heart, but be encouraged! He has given you faithful friends who hold you in their hearts and hold you up in prayer.
