I’ve had awful headaches for days. I’ve been told by friends this is common for a long time after CoVid. (I had it about 4 weeks ago)
But as I lay in bed the other night, I thought, “What if I’m dying?”
And then Scripture came to my mind, “It’s appointed once a man to die” (Heb 9:27)
I remember, my good Father is in charge. There’s some peace there.
But I have more thoughts to take captive. (2 Cor 10:5)
Many scary things flood my mind.
But with each one, the thought, “the Lord will never leave me nor forsake me” (Deut 31:6).
In fact, even with death, He tells me in His Word, that I can’t even imagine how wonderful Heaven will be and the things He has planned for me. (1 Cor 2:9)
So, I thought, “I’ll be okay. I’ll go to sleep.”
But sleep was hard and has been all week. But still, my eyes popped open early with my time with the Lord on my mind. How I love His Word!
I couldn’t wait to grab my Bible.
“Oh, speak Lord your servant listens”. (1 Sam 3:9)
But then the evil one whispers, “What an unworthy servant you are.”
And though I’m tired and in pain, the one who has come to rob, kill and destroy (John 10:10) is relentless. In fact, he turns up the guns.
His Holy Spirit reminds me, He has come to give life and life abundantly. (John 10:10 second part)
He is a shield about me. (Psalm 3:3)
When I am weak. He is strong. (2 Cor 12:10)
And so I pray…Oh, Lord I’m your weak servant. Help me not lean on my own understanding but please direct my steps and give me what I need for this day and this life as I seek You (Prov 3:5-6)
Oh, Lord You alone are good and what You do is good. Will You work in and through me for Your good purpose? (Phil 2:13)
You know my flesh is weak (Matt 26:41) and my next breath is in Your hands. (Job 12:10)
Oh, Lord what a blessing that you have reminded me, once again, that my life is in Your hands!
No matter what comes my way, Your Word, Oh Lord, is so very good.
You God, are so very good!
You are TRUTH to HOLD on to!
“If the LORD had not been my help,
my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.
When I thought, “My foot slips,”
your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up.
When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul”. (Psalm 94:17-19)
Oh. Lord, YOU did it again! You cheered my soul!
And friend, God will be your help and cheer your soul too. Over and over as we tune our hearts to Him. ❤️
What a Savior!!
