Dec 13, 2011

This morning I am laid up in bed. The flu that everyone around me seems to have has finally struck. In this sorry state of mind my head swims with anxiety. I have MS and I have a job with many responsibilities which become overwhelming if I am not well.

I have learned over the years to turn my anxieties into prayers. I talk things out with God, letting him know that my long list of problems need fixing. The more tired I am, the more the list grows like Pinnochio's nose. So I did a dump on God. It's OK though, he has broad shoulders. So after my long rant, I felt convicted that I should do Him the favour of listening back, and I turned to todays reading in my book, Daily Light. And there I heard God's voice so clearly in today, Dec 13 th's reading; "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my right hand" - "Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, "Be strong, fear not". Isa 41:10, Isa 35:3,4.

MS has made my right hand weak and my legs feeble! But he will uphold me even when it is hard to hold myself up. Thank you Lord for your promises.
