shaky knees

Isaiah 41:10
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

Today I see the oncologist. This is the easiest appointment we have had so far, yet somehow, it has become the one that has me undone.

Psalm 62:5-6
Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him.
He alone is my rock and salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.

This morning, EVERYTHING I have read has been about worrying. About not worrying. About keeping my focus on Jesus and being assured that He has everything under control. Radiation therapy, husband’s salvation, Hannah’s travel, neighbor issues, work issues; these are not too big for Him. He has them under control.

Proverbs 18:10
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Then why, if I know this, if I know GOD IS IN CONTROL, am I shaky? How do you get His words and promises down in you? How do they become your normal response?

About Teresa Neal

I am a Jesus girl. I have been redeemed by his blood and his love. I am also a wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, employee, friend, searcher, grace receiver, mercy needer and stumbler. I am fully in love with our God. I cannot do anything without him, although I try all too often. I write about the things Jesus is doing in my life, about what the Holy Spirit whispers to my soul, my struggles with depression, anxiety and OCD, and sometimes my family.
