I needed to hear this today. My health issues are making me a bit crazy. As a retired RN I know just enough anymore to be dangerous. I do know that when blood pressure is creeping up and seemingly my BP meds are making my blood sugar readings go up and up even when my diet is perfect. Perfect for something with 4 feet and long, silky ears if I eat any more veggies I will grow those ears myself. Veggies and lean meats, poultry and fish (ugh) along with some legumes and a few nuts. OK. Then I try to get quiet and hear what the Lord is saying to me:
Child, don't panic. You are exactly where I want you right now, there is a perfect purpose in it. You aren't "ahead of schedule" or "behind schedule" but right on time and where I desire you. Look neither to the left or the right but up, to me, your FATHER. Rest, be still so that you can mount up with wings as an eagle. Then shall you walk, not run, on higher ground. Steady and supported by ME- I AM that you might BE, through my strength made perfect as you seek my will in childlike faith, acceptance and expectancy. I do care so deeply. Do not fret your "progress" or lack thereof but draw nigh unto me. Selah.
Prayer: Thank You, my Father. I also pray a prayer to send the enemy far from me. He is the one who seeks to cheat, lie, rob, destroy and accuse. I trust in You, my Lord Jesus and that you will either heal this ornery body of mine or give the medical personnel wisdom and the right med choices and answers. Praising your name for reminding me whose most capable hands I am in. AMEN
