How many of you have allergies?
Today was my day for the ultimate allergy attack. I have recently started a new job so this was an adventure of how to work and be productive while feeling horrible.
Early this morning in SA there was a small front that came through. Lots of wind! Felt great, which is uncommon. Wind = Sinus Problems for me.
Midmorning, I started to have a sinus headache. Then I suddenly felt my left eye burning from the wind. Seriously people, my eye was bright red and burning. As I felt my eye beginning to burn, I asked my coworker if my eye was bright red. Yep, it was. There were no eye drop in the med kit at work so I just rinsed out my eye with water. I felt a lot better!
I was still in so much pain that I was crying involuntarily.
What would you do if this happened to you?
Not only did I say a short prayer after I rinsed out my eye, but I also said Phil 4:13 out loud to myself. Then I texted my parents and sister and friend Alicia to pray for my relief. After all, I needed to get back to work at full speed! So what happened…right?
Within 5 to 10 minutes, I received most of my relief. Prayer is a powerful tool in the Christian walk. Do not underestimate what God can do when you pray (and to clarify, pray in complete faith)!!
Thank the Lord lunchtime arrived pretty quick, and I was starting to feel better.
Of all thing to have brought for lunch, I had Chuys poncho nachos. I had plenty of jalapeños, pico de gallo, and guacamole to put on them too. So sorry if this is making you hungry.
Did you know that if you suffer from sinus issues spicy foods help clear your sinuses? I covered my nachos in all of the left over jalapeños. Yes, Chuys jalapeños are super spicy. But they really helped.
If you would ask me today what things I am really thankful for, I would tell you prayer and jalapeños.
What an eventful day! It turned out great!
Phillipians 4:13, “I can do all things
through Christ, who strengthens me.”
