I don't suffer from headaches often, but usually they are all stressed related. I pulled away and talked with God. For me, spending time with God, at its greatest is finding a quiet, dark spot on the floor in the corner of a room.
I don't know why that appeals to me so much and I can hear God speak clearly when I am positioned that way. I think part of it is the quiet and darkness limits my distractions. Honestly, the corner provides support for my back, but sitting on the floor for me brings me to a place of child-like innocence.
Remember being told to sit on the floor in a circle and giving all your attention to the teacher who would sit in a chair and read a book to you. I loved that, it had my total attention. During story time, nothing else mattered. No on bothered me because my total focus was on the story teller. You could move the room around me, but as long as the story was being told, I didn't care.
I believe that is what I feel when I am in that position. It is like nothing else matters. I am totally focused on God. I share my heart with Him, but most of all, I, with eager anticipation, await His sweet words to me.
Yesterday, I found that place, downstairs in one of the rooms off the Yellow Room in the ROCK, at church. It was dark and I found my corner. I placed my concerns at His feet and I listened to His words to me. Everything has not been revealed, there was no handwriting on the wall, but there was calm and peace and guidance. I left that room with no headache and refreshed and ready for the next step.
Today, I again am making a conscious effort to pull away from my day and talk to God.
Day 2 of Asking before Doing
I'll let you know how it goes.
