Confession – I had to Repent

 

Truth is always the best way to go. No, truth is the ONLY way to go. There have been struggles, emotionally, within the depth of the soul. Doubts, concerns, and yes, even worries. ‘What will the report be?’ ‘How will it affect my life?’ ‘Will I have to live with a bag attached to my body?’ ‘How will it affect my relationships with people?’ . . . where was my faith?!

 

Pain, discomfort, a body that does not want to function properly; test upon test, upon test. Days pass by, turning into months . . . how long until it is over? Will I ever be ‘normal’ again? . . . where was my faith?!

 

Everything the health professionals tell you to do to help correct the problem, are things you have already been doing, without any results. More tests ordered. Questions start swimming in the mind. Did I take captive those thoughts, or did I allow them to creep in, and start pondering them? Confession time . . .I pondered.

 

No wait just one minute! Who IS in control of all things? My Lord, my God, my Savior, my Creator. So, why the doubts? Why the questions? Simple answer, because I – me – did not take the thoughts captive. Yes, I know the TRUTH – healing is mine. Yes, I know the TRUTH – I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Yes, I know the TRUTH – no weapon formed against me will prosper. And, yes I know the TRUTH – even IF I happen to have a ‘thorn in the flesh’, His grace IS sufficient for me! God will not love me any less, I will not love Him any less. I will continue to serve Him with all I have and all I am . . . “Father, I repent of my doubts, worries and concerns . . . You WILL see this through – the report, yesterday, was not great, but it was not devastating, either. You ARE in control, I will praise You through it all. Forgive me for not taking those thoughts captive before – I’m taking them captive NOW, in Jesus Name. I will be victorious through it all. Amen.”

Psalm 34 comes to mind . . . it was put into ‘song’ form, way back when I was a teenager . . . we would sing it around the campfire:

 

“I will bless the Lord at ALL times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul will make her boast in Thee, Lord, the humble will hear thereof and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His Name together . . . oh, I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (verses 1-4, slightly paraphrased)

 

This song will continue to be on my lips today as I focus on Him . . . not on ‘things’ or ‘circumstances’! Be blessed today . . . as you bless the Lord . . . let us magnify Him, not our ‘struggles’ . . . to quote a very dear sister of mine, “It’s ALL good.”

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
