“O Lord my God, I cried out to You and You healed me.” Psalm 30:2
This Sunday morning, I was reviewing my sermon notes to complete the last of a new series on The Ten Commandments: God's Perfect Law of Liberty, when acute back pain came on suddenly and kept increasing in unbearable intensity. My initial thought, that I must have overdone it at the gym on Saturday, was quickly dismissed as I recognised the symptoms. Acute lower back pain and an overwhelming nausea had me running to the bathroom, expecting to throw up any moment. Soon there was no doubt, I was experiencing an eruption of kidney stones.
